*Latest Update as at 12 Dec 2013: Bedok Mall is already open and super crowded, I really wonder where the people have come from! And it feels like more than 90% of the shops are already open for business. From what I saw today, places like Starbucks, ToastBox, Tim Ho Wan, Poulet, Itacho, SK Jewellery, G2000, Charles & Keith, Faces of Spade etc are open. But FairPrice Finest will only be open on 14 Dec 2013 onwards!
Really long queues at all the popular restaurants! Eg by 6.30pm, Tim Ho Wan already had a snaking queue outside their restaurant, and by 7pm, you would have had to wait at least 15 minutes or more at Itacho sushi!
Amazing news! For those of you who are living in the East, rejoice because Bedok Mall will be opening on 3rd December! Yes, even though the mall still looks half complete, the insides must be already all spruced up and ready to invite the Christmas shoppers!

There will be a 4m Christmas tree at the basement made out of 2000, recycled plastic milk bottles bringing festive cheer to all shoppers. Don’t forget to go there to get the free lollipops, popcorn, balloons and check out the roving fairies, contortionist, Santa Claus and SNOW!

I’m not really sure how Fraser Centrepoint’s Bedok Point Mall is going to fare compared to the CapitaLand’s gigantic Bedok Mall, but Bedok Point will always have a soft spot in my heart as Bedok’s official first shopping mall, opened 3 years ago also during the Christmas period. I’ve sought refuge in the Killiney Cafe at Bedok Point many a time or conducted business discussions there and I am quite likely to do so again especially if Bedok Mall becomes insanely crowded.
