    Stop at Bugis MRT. That's the nearest. Or if you are coming by Johore, I believe you can take SBS Bus #170. It will stop somewhere near Sim Lim Tower, where you can walk to the square. It's a blue glass building.

    If I am not wrong, 170 goes all the way to it's terminal at Queen Street, which is very near Sim Lim Tower/Square.

    You can get the bus info here:

    Map here:

    The star shows Queen St Terminal, where 170 is stopping. SLS is just above.

    One thingy to note. Some, of not most, of the shops open rather late at around 10:30 to 11am. So make you way down later else you'll waste your time waiting for them to open. Check the prices of other shops and compare before buying....

    They're not exactly close to each other. Need to take bus.

    Do a search at www.streetdirectory.com to get them maps of both buildings. It'll help.

    To get to the Adelphi, you'll need to either take a train to City Hall MRT station and walk (5-10 mins), or take a bus. Better still, take a cab.

    Thanks! Now I see it. Hmm...the problem now is it is a bit inconvenient to get the charger at Adelphi and battery at SimLim square. I wanna get the Sanyo battery at the price of S$3~3.50, is there any shops near City Hall selling at this price?

    Sometimes, it might just be alright if you pay abit more and get it at the same place because the amount of money you spend on transport might jolly well add up to your savings.

    yes, you are right. But is there any places near City Hall having Sanyo battery? I understand the cahrger is only available there...at Adelphi.

    I'm not sure about sanyo batteries. Are they for videocams? There are lots of shops in Peninula Plaza, Funan Centre and Adelphi area. Cathay Photo is there so you might want to check them out.

    Are u talking about AA batteries? Why not try Mustafa, which is only 2 bus-stop away (take bus 23 outside SLS). They have the Sanyo 1700 mAh.

    That's the OTHER direction, towards Bukit Timah etc, right?

    I am about to depart from Johor now...will stop at Queen Street, search around for SLS, (by the way, which floor is Alan Photo located?), buy the batteries, later take MRT to City Hall, walk to Adelphi...and buy the charger. Will try both Compact Intelligent and Multi Intelligent there...not sure which one to get. Btw, is the Compact Intelligent comes with car adapter?
