A seasoned visitor in Singapore would have probably made visits to the non-stop exhibitions that has been held in Singapore Expo or the Suntec Convention Centre. Before Singapore Expo was built, most of the exhibition were held mostly in World Trade Centre (the building that houses the cable car to Sentosa) and the Suntec Convention Centre in town. But it seemed that there were too many large and international exhibitions and shows in Singapore in a year that there were not enough space to hold large scale exhibitions.

A year would see fairs like PCs and even MacWorld, among the popular ones. Food exhibitions are also very common also but the trade ones only admit people in the business. The current one that is ongoing, is the FHA or better known as the Food and Hotel Asia which is held in conjunction with International Culinary contests bring all the Michelin Stars’ Chefs flying in for this event. It has been full house for most hotels at this time of the year and in the next few months to come.

I was at the Singapore Expo more than a week ago for the John Little Mega-Fair of which I got some good price for Polo TShirts and some pyjamas for my girls. John Little always have very good bargains for beddings but I already have more than I need. I wanted to purchase a foldable Futon that I saw because they were really very reasonably priced but I worry that I have no place to store them.

There is always something exciting in Singapore Expo and Suntec Convention. My girls are bugging me to bring them to the Dora the Explorer, live show in May/June holidays but I have yet to decide. Tickets are selling out fast, I  KNOW!
