Being a truly Malaysian where the shopping mall culture is embedded in our lives since small, my family and I decided to conquer the Lion City malls on Boxing Day. Orchard Road was closed on Christmas day so it was a good decision to start shopping on the 26th onwards.
Orchard Road (NS22)
At first we decided to take the MRT but my hubby insisted that we hire a van to take us there as my son will be exhausted by 4pm. True enough. Of all the days, my son picked this day to be picky, cranky and clingy. But nevermind, kids are like that.
Oh yeah, one short story in ION, my son was really hungry so we decided to buy Happy Meal for him. Boleh tak diorang kata takde free toy for the Happy Meal. Hello…masa tu baru kul 12 tengahari ok….dah takde stok ke?…kan macam pelik jer?…being Malaysian, ‘ít’s ok’ was all we said.
VivoCity (Harbourfront Station- NE1)
The next target. This mall is nearer to Sentosa Island. We can see it from here. But we didn’t plan to go there anyway. We were really tired when we reached here. Couldn’t actually walk around with leisure. The place was full of people and we were tired too (Oh..did I mentioned it before?). Huh.
Suntec City Mall (City Hall Station – NS25 or EW13)
This shopping mall is divided into 4 themed zones (Galleria, Tropics, Entertainment Centre and Fountain Terrance). It also features the ‘Fountain of Wealth’, which is acknowledged by the The Guiness Book of Records as the largest fountain in the world. I heard that you should wet your hands in it, return to Singapore, and get instant wealth….dunno….But, the disappointed thing was, we waited for the fountain show at 9 pm but even until near to 10 pm, the show did not start. That was not expected especially when we were in Singapore…(kan diorang ni ‘kiasu’ sikit….)
Disebabkan lapar, I bought a pack of Kenny Rogers muffins. Dengan bangganya I said I’ll have all vanilla, diorang kata ‘we only have corn flavour’. What? Serious rasa dia pelik dan tak sedap. Haish takpelah (kita memang suka perkataan ni kan)….telan jer…kan lapar dah tuh….
That’s all. Those were the places that we managed to ‘singgah’…actually we are planning to go again, but this time we won’t be visiting so many places…too tiring….we will just focus either VivoCity or ION Orchard….and shop in our favourite stores…..until next scribbling….byeee…
