When the opportunity arose to go to Singapore, I immediately started looking things up that I might wanted to visit. Books Actually immediately made it to the very top of my list.
Take me to a bookstore and I'm a very happy girl, throw in stationary and you'll have trouble pulling me out again, raise that with some vintage and I'm suddenly very willing to put up with a twelve-and-a-half-hour plane trip.
Thankfully the actual visit was as fantastic as I imagined it to be. It was a combination of old books, awesome books and local books. I spent quite some time checking out all authors, titles and little trinkets that were scattered all over the store.
Of course I bought some things there. In fact a fair share of my birthday money was spent here.
I decided to get some local books, things I couldn't possibly find at home. And well, a Banana Yoshimoto I didn't already own.
There was also a collection of zines to choose from, I liked this one best.
And I finally got my long-awaited chance to get a Frankie Magazine!
Well, that's pretty much it for books.
But... I have lots of other things from different shopping trips to show you! Including some things that have been on my wish list for ages...
