First Time

Well Ithis is my first trip out of the country. Will be gone three weeks. 1 week in Singapore and two weeks in Indonisia. i am excited this site has been a real big help. I think the Night Sarfa will be cool. Does not sound like electronics are all that cheap comapred to the US? Is that true? What about Gems? My wife want an emerald. Any suggestions.

Hi Compass,

Jewellery can be considered a good buy here. We do have a wide variety of gems but emeralds don't seem to be very popular with Singaporeans so it may be kinda difficult to get emeralds. As far as I know, the more trendy jewellers here like Lee Hwa, Aspial, SK Jewellery and Goldheart tend to carry more diamonds, sapphire, rubies and opals with white/purple gold. For emeralds, you might want to try the more traditional family-owned jewellers in Chinatown and Little India area.
