Of Whales And Nice Soap

Made the pilgrimage to the mecca of eclectic yuppie-dom that is Club Street/Keong Saik Road/Amoy Street.

And, as much as I hate to admit, we found some pretty nice things to bring home.

By far the best shop of the lot was Strangelets at Amoy Street. Whoever is stocking their shop is doing a really good job, almost everything in there is gold.

Check out the lovely paper wrapper which held our purchases.

Here is a $15 bar of soap which Stiletto slipped into the shopping basket. For the record, I am fully supportive of her excesses pertaining to agents of the cleansing variety. And while I don’t particularly like the smell of this bar of soap, it does have an awesome insect stamped onto its packaging.

Wooden soap dish, our other choice was something from IKEA, but this matches our birch/beech palette better.

Sitting pretty together.

Thomas Paul whale dish which we’ve seen on Typefiend. Didn’t know they were stocked here, but once we saw them, we knew we had to get a pair. I believe they are supposed to be serving plates/platters, but we’re going to use them as dinner plates.

All in all, an enjoyable afternoon, and a good distraction from the renovation works.
