The Shilla Duty Free

James always complain about me overspending on clothes and cosmetics. Cosmetics are generally way more expensive than clothes.

Now, I know where to stock up for the cheapest and branders cosmetics and perfumes! The ultimate shopping experience with 182 Cosmetics and Perfume brands can be found in our Changi Airport!!! It has the largest collection of beauty brands among airport duty free shops in Asia Pacific.

The prices are up to 40% cheaper than what is retailing in the city from Marc Jacobs to SK-II to Revlon to Laneige to Chanel to Jo Malone to NARS and more. Some sets are travel-exclusive so you can only get it inside. Terminal 1 was also the first place to launch the world’s first new SK-II AurActivator Complete Correction Cream!

You will be able to find The Shilla Duty Free at all 3 terminals but the iconic one will be at Terminal 3, which is expected to be completed in June 2015. It will house a Dior Makeup Flagship store, a beauty cafe and an SK-II Pitera spaaaaaa!

Korean pop stars, TVXQ and Chinese actress & Model Angelababy were there during the ribbon cutting session as they are the stores’ official ambassadors.

Why them? You must be thinking. Singapore is also hit by the Korean wave so you can find a lot of K-beauty brands there as they are highly sought after. Be prepared to be welcomed and look forward to a range of over 34 K-beauty brands!

Everyone was screaming for the k-pop boy band and Angelababy. And that goes to show that The Shilla has got the right ambassadors! Haha.

Apart from the departure hall, if you are only visiting Changi Airpot and not for traveling, be sure to check out the famous Korean brand which is finally now in Singapore – Whoo. You can visit them at its new flagship store at Terminal 1 Departure Check-in Hall area.

I must comment that the products looked like they are made for royalty.

I was totally sold by the lipstick!!! I bet you would be too!

For your information, you can also find The Shilla Duty Free at Seoul (Flagship Retail Store), Incheon International Airport, Jeju Island, Gimpo International Airport, Daegu International Airport and Macau Airport.

New weekend Changi Brunch Menu

Azur brings together the best of the East and West for a refreshed menu of the popular Weekend Changi Brunch featuring local and international cuisine.

The Weekend Changi Brunch also includes all time local favorites featuring Prawn Noodles from the Local Delights Noodle Bar with sweet and juicy prawns in a flavoursome broth, fluffy Ham Chim Peng with three delicious fillings – Sesame, Peanut or Loutus Paste and fragrant Roasted Chicken served with tangy homemade chilli sauce.

The prawn noodles has a little tinge of spiciness which I personally quite like it because I realized that most authentic prawn noodles has this little tinge too!

They are served in little portions in the white mug below so that you can keep your tummy for other food.

A burst of Asian and Western flavour

Asian dishes like Chicken Malai Kebab and Nasi Briyani from the Indian Cuisine Claypots, succulents Braised “Dong Po” Pork Belly and Kong Bak Pao, Wok Fried Golden Crabmeat Fried Frice and Steam Fish Fillet with Dried Shrimp Sambal and Caramelized onions.

Highlight highlight! So juicy!

This is not Har Gao, it’s scallop dumping :O

You can also make your own rojak! Yay. Lesser of pineapple and more of you tiao pleaseeee.

For a taste of west….. They have German Sausage with Juniper berry sauerkraut and Beef Jus from the Butcher’s Carving station, Maked Mussels with aioli Herbs, Oven Roasted Chicken with Green Pepper Jus and Pan Seared Australian Beef Steak with Black Pepper Cream Sauce.

My favourite was the egg section. You can choose sunny side up, scramble, omelette, or poached and pick any fillings of your choice.

I had 2 servings of Ham Scrambled. All Sims are egg lovers!! Carrie and David (Nadia’s husband), are Sim too and we are huge lovers of eggs. It’s proven! 😀

Mushroom Omelette.

And the seafood are quite fresh too! They had crayfish, prawns, crabs and etc as well. So seafood lovers, take note of this!

What’s best to end an indulgent meal?


They have Durian Profiteroles, Creme Brulee, Miniature Pastries, Dessert in Mini Shooter Glasses and Chocolate Walnut Brownies.

But I guess what caught my attention most was making my own Ice Kachange and pile on my favourite condiments, syrups and carnation milk.
