My Visit to the Tintin Shop at Singapore

I happened to drop by the China Town at Singapore only just to visit the Tintin Shop. Created by the Belgian cartoonist Hergé, having its origin in the early 1900s, Tintin still remains the evergreen reporter and adventurer who travels around the world with his dog Snowy.

This giant Tintin statue remains at the entrance to welcome the visitors to the store. I quickly grabbed a shot of Tintin and Snowy once I happened to locate the store around the Pagoda Street. This is a photo I took in late 2012.

I bought a number of miniature PVC figurines from the Singapore Tintin Shop. I brought Captain Haddock, Snowy, and Thompson and Thompson from there. I am a fan of pop culture and therefore these had to be among my collectibles! The figurines were pricey yet the miniature ones were affordable. I also bought a red tote-bag from the store that I took inside my luggage when I traveled from Bangladesh to USA.

Many people pose with Captain Haddock here in this location (pictured below) yet I only took a full shot of the Captain.

Me and Shelly actually went to see the animation movie The Adventures of Tintin once it was released in 2011. In this animation movie, the plot has the intrepid reporter Tintin and Captain Haddock set off on a treasure-hunt for a sunken ship that was commanded by Haddock’s ancestor.

I found some interesting Facebook photo posts in Tintin Shop Singapore’s page. These are my favorites:

I love them all! However, my most favorite is the Tintin, Haddock, Nestor figurine featured above.

Here is the trailer of the movie uploaded by ReportingSanDiegoETC channel in YouTube:

Let me share another video on the animation movie uploaded on YouTube by Clevver Movies channel:

 

The Tintin Shop at UK was very famous yet I had to settle for the Tintin Shop nearby at Singapore since I had not visited UK (I have not really visited UK till now even!). When I went to Singapore, we had to hunt the store down in the Singapore China Town. Here is a video on the location:

This video above was uploaded by Ph Toptv YouTube channel during March, 2012 on the Tintin store at Singapore.

I hope you liked this feature on Tintin. See you later… bye for now!

    checkbox and now each time a comment is added
    I get several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any
    way you can remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!

    1. Hi! Thanks! Yes, it really is time-consuming. What I found with my little experience is that WordPress is more user-friendly than tumblr. You need to be an expert in coding if you want to post a well-formatted, decent blog on tumblr. However, with WordPress, generally you do not need to learn coding. Hope this helps! :-)

    1. Hi! Honestly speaking, I have not researched much about the available blogs/forums that you are in need of. I wish I could suggest some.

    If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail.

    b44d60b95d293b45fac1a4e2067363e6

    to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic
    job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more

    that I personally would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a subject that’s been written about for many years.
    Wonderful stuff, just great!
    b44d60b95d293b45fac1a4e2067363e6

  27. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be
    actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am
    looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
    b44d60b95d293b45fac1a4e2067363e6

  28. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could
    be giving us something enlightening to read?

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind
    prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Appreciate it!
    b44d60b95d293b45fac1a4e2067363e6

  30. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your blog.

    Please shoot me an e-mail if interested. Cheers!

  32. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a
    variety of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another
    platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into
    it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
