Greenwich V

*Media Invite*

If you have been following my blog, by now you should have known about the newest mall in Singapore, the Greenwich V. It is a small little mall, only 2 storeys high, located in the Seletar / Jalan Kayu area. About half of the establishments are eateries while the other half comprises the “daily living” type of stores such as Laundromat, supermarket, video rental and even an English language school. BTW, Greenwich is pronounced as GREN – NICH, same as the Greenwich of Greenwich Mean Time.

When I first learnt of the existence of Greenwich V, and this was before any official media invite, my immediate reaction was “What a quaint little mall”! I want to get a condo apartment right above Greenwich V!!!! I was so attracted to it that the next day, which was Chinese New Year DAY ONE(!!), I took my parents to Greenwich V for a cup of tea and cakes at Toastbox! I even grabbed a brochure on the condo, but sanity prevailed eventually as Greenwich V is just way too far from my parents place in the Eastern part of Singapore.

Surprise surprise, a few weeks later Greenwich V “came to me” via an OMY blogger’s invite to check out Greenwich V via an Amazing Race style competition. 15 bloggers were selected for the competition, and divided into 3 groups. I was part of the Urban Team, along with bloggers Jesslyn, Grace, Melvin and Hazel, with Janet from OMY to ensure that we did not cheat (as if we would ever…).

The Urban Team! The Urban Team : Grace, Hazel, Jesslyn, Myself and Melvin!

Our task was to guess the answers to 10 questions, which would then lead us to 10 respective Greenwich V outlets. We would then have to complete the challenge by either Eating, Learning or Doing. It really was a great way to learn more about the mall even if we had to rush rush and rush!

These were the outlets we visited:-

1st - Empire State

2nd - Cinta Manis

3rd - Hockhua Tonic

4th - Mai Thai Restaurant

5th - Paradise Inn

6th - Berrylite

7th - VideoEzy

8th - Toastbox

9th - Cedele

10th - Rosabelle Launderette

11th - Phoenix Medical Group

For my reviews on Mai Thai Restaurant, Paradise Inn and ToastBox, click on the respective links. You can also read more about the other outlets, which my team members have written about here. Or you can check out Greenwich V’s Facebook and Website. Check out our crazy Amazing Race day video on Youtube!

Alas, we didn’t manage to win the Amazing Bloggers Race competition. I thought the photos we submitted were of top quality (click on Urban Team!). Oh well, next time then. To my fellow Urban team members, we did our best and we have no regrets!!!

* Thanks Far East Organization / Greenwich V and OMY for the wonderful afternoon and great hospitality!

ToastBox at Greenwich V

ToastBox was another outlet us bloggers visited as part of the Greenwich V / OMY.SG Amazing Blogger Race competition. It’s no secret that I like patronising ToastBox. I’ve blogged about ToastBox on three separate occasions, read it here, here and here. I really like the Victorian, old school decor. The teh is pretty good and the tea cakes are so cute and affordable!

ToastBox at Greenwich V flanks the main entrance. You won’t miss it at all when walking or driving in. For our Bloggers Amazing Race challenge, we got to sample the Peanut Thick Toast as well as Chicken and Potato curry.

ToastBox serves hot meals so it’s not just a place for a snack, it’s also an option for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

They are pretty generous with the Peanut butter.

Butter Sugar Thick Toast at ToastBox

But this is my ultimate favourite at ToastBox. The Butter Sugar Thick Toast. Generous amounts of butter slathered onto hot fluffy toast, with sprinklings of sugar. It is SO GOOD. Trust me, not many places spread the butter so evenly for you. This is the best place to have butter sugar toast.
