Finally had a chance to visit the myVillage mall at Serangoon Gardens yesterday, even though I have known of its existence 2 months back, and in fact, walked past it once. Was invited down by the mall management for a special bloggerâ€™s â€œget to know myVillageâ€ session. The evening was amazing. myVillage really is a charming little mall with personality. The mall even has 2 mascots called Marley and Jules, inspired by the 2 adjoining roads Maju Avenue and Farleigh Road. I mean where else in Singapore can you find such a cute and interesting concept?
The owners of the mall wanted myVillage to blend in with the Serangoon Gardenâ€™s laid back vibe, and have people living near there feel as if this is an extension of their backyard. In this aspect, I think myVillage has done a wonderful job. Just look at the signage itself, can you see the words in there? These are handwritten â€œmyâ€s by over a hundred people living or working in the area.
The roof top is lovely as well. At this point, itâ€™s just wooden flooring and some plants but I think the management plan to install a seating area. From the roof, you can look out over the roofs of the houses nearby. The area is so peaceful, I wish I could have stayed up there longer, just to stare into the sky and imagine away.
I feel quite jealous of the people living near Serangoon Gardens! I want Bedok Point to be like this too! Whereâ€™s my property agentâ€¦.
