Shopping at IKEA is a guilty pleasure most of us won’t normally ’fess up to. Switch your dusty, tired curtains with some new, brightly coloured ones. Change your floral cushion covers to striped ones – for that mod hipster look – and get some colour (and cheer) into your home, just because you feel like it.
Nothing beats a hot dog and soda after a long day spent hunting for the perfect garbage can – grab them at the Ikea food stand after checking out. Also: don’t miss the Swedish meatballs for sale, both hot and frozen. A kilogram of frozen ’balls goes for $18 – some might call that ‘overpriced’, but we say those delicious little buggers are priceless. Meatballs with pasta sauce, meatballs on toast, meatballs in the morning… mmmm.
IKEA has another outlet at 60 Tampines North Drive 2.
