Official opening of Seletar Mall, I met ex LS who is now the boss of Fish & Co.....










The Seletar Mall situated at 33 Sengkang West Ave opened this morning (28 November 2014 Friday). It has 130 brands (not all are opened) and 380 parking lots.

It will have a list of established cafes and restaurants like A-One Claypot House, BALIthai, Delifrance, Din Tai Fung, Fish & Co., Han's, Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert, Let's EAT, McDonald's, My Briyani House, NeNe Chicken, O'Coffee Club, Oki-Machi ,Paradise Inn, Pizza Hut, Proofer Boulangerie, Shokudo, Song Fa Bak Kut Teh, Starbucks, Subway, Sushi Express, Swensen's, Texas Chicken, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Toast Box, Umisushi, Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe and Ya Kun Family Cafe.

It will also have retailers, such as Bata, Challenger Mini, Citrusox, City Chain, dENIZEN, District 5, EEWU Laundry & Alteration, Giordano, Hang Ten, I Love Accessories, M.2, Pierre Cardin Lingerie, Popular Bookstore, Precious Thots, Royal Sporting House, The Travel Store, World of Sports and Young Hearts. It is indeed an exciting place to be in especially today. MacDonald,Toast Box and BreadTalks were the first 3 to start their businesses before the official opening which is today.

As I was McCafe's first customer (2nd pic from top) they presented me a McCafe cup & saucer plus 6 free vouchers for buggers and drinks.

This afternoon I bumped into Ricky Chew who is the owner of Fish & Co. He has an outlet on the 3rd level and was there to witness the opening. He waved at me and I waved back. Ricky was a leading steward with SIA back in the 1990s. He started Fish & Co with another senior crew of SIA.
Ricky looked the same as when he was a crew. He must be about 50 now and still look youthful despite of the hectic involvement in Fish & Co.

I've also bumped into old friends whom I have not met in years. The place was bustling with life.
My wife and had tried the food at Toast Box, Breadtalk, McDonald's, A-One Claypot, Jollie Bean, Sheng Kee, Ya Kun Kaya Toast and Let's Eat over the last 3 days.

We will continue to enjoy the food at this mall which is quite close to our place.

Hello Uncle Boh Tong. I'm back to Singapore. Lucky you, to be first customer and got free gift.

Hi Jacky welcome back to the crowded S'pore. I was lucky because I happened to pass by McDonald that morning. They gave me a coupon for Big Mac and McChicken as well as for 4 of their yummy drinks.

Goes to show how Singaporeans pass their time... from one mall to another.
Thats why we bump into same familiar faces often.

Doesnt anyone spend time at the beach, reservoir, or any outdoor activity?

Take a long walk from Tampines to Bedok jetty through east coast road, joo chiat
and take the bus back.

Walk to Changi village, have a beer ( or 4 ) and take the bus back.

Forgo shopping malls... they offer the same old tired brands..

If its not Toast Box, its Kaya toast
If its not Koi its bee cheng hiang
If its not yong tau foo, its chicken rice...

and pseudo sushi... ( yucks!)
