Global Geek Tour Singapore: Updates from Singapore

Posted on Friday, August 3rd, 2012 in Global Geek, Hackerspace by Ian

Today was our first day the Singapore Global Geek Tour. We visited some electronics shops, and had some chow.

We’ll make a full report when we get back, but in the meantime we posted some pics from today on our Tweeter feed. First stop was the Koba electronics shop pictured above. Rest of the pics are below.

We had some lunch at a Hawker center in Chinatown, Singapore.

    Another place you can go to is Kelantan Lane which is just opposite Sim Lim Tower. There’s a shop that do custom cut acrylic. There’s one that sells all sorts or screws and plenty of shops that sells raw metals
