Yeah, Singapore is one of the most expensive cities to live in the world, with cars costing almost three times more than what they are sold overseas and Government housing (just a small flat, mind you!)peaking at almost $1 million.

You can’t go wrong with this. Firstly, it’s now everywhere. Secondly, their stuff is real cheap, comparing to other supermarkets. Thirdly, the queue is cleared as fast as the queues in McDonald’s. If there’s one company that is having its IPO soon, I won’t be surprised that CK Department Store will be the one.

Value Dollar Shop

A business is complex and risky—Value Dollar Shop makes it simple and extremely risky. What they do is simple: buying bulk of products from lower cost countries directly and selling them to us consumers at a low price. And when I say cheap, I mean really cheap. Their risk? They die die have to sell their stuff. But given their price, we die die go and buy from them loh.

Everything at $2—what more can you ask for? You can even get wallets, belts or ties for just $2. We don’t need to tell you more about Daiso; if you don’t know where they are, you should not continue to live in your cave.

Mustafa Centre

Yes, the entire shopping mall sells reasonably priced items, from your daily items to even the more luxury ones like a Hugo Boss perfume. It works quite similar to Value Dollar Shop: buy in bulk from countries with lower cost price, and pass the savings to consumers. And yeah, you can even do your shopping at 3:00 a.m.
