Singapore: your shopping and dining recs

Jump to last reply

I've got five days in Singapore coming up and I've promised to bring back some gifts for various people. For DH, a short-sleeved batik or silk shirt. For a good friend, a painted silk or batik scarf (for each of the preceding, I'd like to spend no more than 100 Singapore dollars if possible). For others, some less expensive but not-crappy souvenirs (no t-shirts or baseball caps). One person is an artist, are there any good Asian art/craft magazines I can pick up in Singapore?

For dining, looking for your favorite sushi/Japanese restaurant recommendations. Something in the mid-price range. Also Vietnamese but not too spicy -- looking for lighter fare. I'm staying at the Mandarin Oriental, so recommendations for something not too far from there would be appreciated, although I have no problems taking buses, MRT etc. I will be going to the food markets like Lau Pa Sat. By the way, how spicy is that chili crab?

Fortunately, breakfast is included in my hotel rate, so I think I'll be able to skip lunch and have cocktails instead. Yes, I will go to Raffles (please feel free to roll eyes) but any other good cocktail bars? I don't mean a nightclub or pickup scene, I'm looking for late afternoon fruity cocktails with little umbrellas. (again, feel free to roll eyes, but this is MY trip and that's what I want). If I do an afternoon tea, where do you suggest I go?

Many thanks!
