Busking @ Central Market
I bought three books last weekend that is closely related to the WWII in Singapore. The books are as follows, Flavors of Change - Destiny and Diplomacy, Recollections of a Singapore Ambassador by J.F. Conceicao. Living Hell - Story of a WWII Survivor at the Death Railway by Goh Chor Boon and The Japanese Occupation 1942-1945 - A Pictorial Record of Singapore During the War. I bought these books at the Popular Bookstore (Ikano Power Centre).
Popular Bookstore (Ikano Power Centre) is a well stocked bookstore. This came to a surprise to me because I used to go to Popular Bookstore when I was a teenager at Toa Payoh Central. It was a place to buy stationaries, textbooks and nothing else in between. Now, you could find really good books over there, even books by Murakami.
Now I know where to shop for books besides Kinokuniya...
