Touring the Lion City: IKEA

June 12, 2010. 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

IKEA = stylish + affordable

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.

Mammut Stool.
I bought the white one.

If you got hungry in the middle of shopping, you can also grab a bite at their restaurant.

We had spaghetti...


nuggets and fries...

and their best seller - the Swedish Meatballs!


  1. the Tampines branch is bigger, but Alexandra is the first Ikea branch I visited so I will always love that more. I miss the meatballs! you should have tried them with fries :) and the cake! you should have tried their cake! super sarap :)
