After lunch, CH and I set off to Golden Mile in search of sulphur which YK wanted for his chemistry experiment. There are lots of little shops that sell army stuff in the area, so it was easy to find sulphur which is used by soldiers to ward off snakes in the jungle.
It's a rather hip area where youngsters go to for shoes and street wear. We came across some skirts with retro prints and CH immediately urged me to try. Finally he bought me these two. They were only $10 each!I love the prints on the little skirt. It's very short though. I'm not sure where I'm going to wear it to but the one on the right can be worn to work.
There are lots of nice food stalls at Golden Mile Food Centre. Since we've had lunch, we settled for ice cream. We've read about Ice Queen and my sister in law was raving about it last week, so die die we must try!
The lady at the counter was really friendly and kept offering us samples to try. Finally we settled on a combination of 3 flavours - black sesame, durian and lychee sorbet - for $3.80! In other ice cream palours, one flavour can set you back by about $5, here we can enjoy 3 scoops!
I love the sesame ice cream the best. It's very fragrant and you can taste bits of sesame seeds, bursting with nutty flavour when you bite into them. The other 2 flavours are fine but not outstanding. These are freshly made everyday without any eggs. They're also low in sugar and fat, so healthy too!
After indulging in ice cream, we had to walk off the calories. We roamed around Arab Street and Haji Lane. Here are some of the photos taken along the way.
