One thing that has been on my list of things to do while we are here in Singapore is go to this dish factory in Malaysia that I have heard amazing things about. A couple groups of ladies from church have gone but I have always missed out since Brennan is at work and I don't have a helper. When I heard of another trip getting planned I decided to ask Brennan to try to work from home so I could go. And I am so glad I did!
I jumped on the bus around 7:30 in the morning to get up to the Woodlands by 9. Then we all piled in Suzy's car and she was nice enough to drive us all up to Malaysia. So there is a Claytan China dish factory there. Across from that they have this big tent set up with tons and tons of "seconds" for insanely cheap. They have also carried Spode seconds in the past. They actually stopped receiving new Spode awhile back so once what they have is gone, it's gone. Luckily I got to snag some!

I mean this piggy bank is pretty stinking adorable. And Declan loves to hug it which is also quite adorable.
After we all got our wonderfully beautiful and cheap dishes we headed for some fruit. It is insane how much cheaper fruit is in Malaysia compared to Singapore. I really liked the fact that they would cut into any of the fruit and let you try it, that way you would know if it was good. It was especially nice since a lot of the fruit we had never heard of before, let alone tried. Unfortunately, I knew I was headed home on a bus later with quite a few plates, so I had to limit myself to just two pineapple. I wish I could have stocked up more.
HUGE bananas. I should have taken a picture that gave some comparison to something. Oops. Just trust me, they were big. :)
