Touring the Lion City: IKEA


IKEA = stylish + affordable

The only IKEA branch that I've been to since I was kid was in Kuwait.  I've had attempts of visiting their HK branches on my recent trips but never materialized because I knew I would only be disappointed that I can't take the items home with me. Hello 15kg baggage limit! So when we got additional 15kg-allowance each due to Cebu Pacific's promo, I told the group that we MUST visit IKEA

And yes, it finally happened on our 5th day in Singapore. There are only 2 IKEA branches in Singapore - Alexandra and Tampines. The Alexandra branch is just less than 20 minutes away by bus from Chinatown so we chose the former.
