Something from the past, something from the future…

Last weekend, me and some of my closest buds headed off to Singapore to experience the famous ‘Xmas in the Tropics’ at Orchard Road first hand. I must say it didn't disappoint, the throngs of people marvelled at the ‘all decked out‘ decorations, everyone going snappy happy.

With  all the merriment surrounding us, we inadvertently got into the festive spirit, donning our Santa hats, hehe…

Of course, what is a Singapore escapade without a bit of shopping (the word ‘bit’ here is an understatement, trust me, hehe)… And i have to say, me and my buddies really have an eclectic taste in brands, ranging from the sidewalk to the catwalk. I wouldn't rattle off everything that we bought, except of course for you-know-what brand. Hint hint.

But being Xmas eve, the Diesel stores at Forum (along with all other Club21 stores in the city) was closed by 6pm. All I managed to do is to have a sneak peek of what's inside, huhu… Oh well, like the saying goes: Good things come to those who wait. Little did i know then of what’s in store the following day.…

So on Xmas day at Vivo City, I was sad to discover that apparently the Diesel store is to close by February next year (sob sob). But as a last hurrah, they deciding to go out with a bang by having a fabulous clearance sale on past collections: a staggering 70% off for three items or more!

So later that day, we finally made our way back to Forum. My goal there was to nab a shirt and a T-shirt from the Rockin’ Dots aka the SS2010 preview collection.

Lookin’ good, hehe…

Now, before you guys go all ‘Oh no, there goes Dieselfreak… not another pair’, please bear in mind that i never owned a black pair of denim before. So this purchase is entirely justifiable! End.of.story (pause for dramatic effect).

Plus, who can resist this beauty…

So, while the jeans was not part of my initial plan. I am a happy camper nonetheless. Also, the purchase was made all the more sweeter with the exclusive premiums including the Rockin’ Dots rubber band, a pair of foldable speakers and a chance to win a whopping SGD1,000 worth of Diesel swag personally selected by Singapore indie band Electrico. Wish me luck, guys!
