Paya Lebar Quarter opens! – 5 reasons why you should visit

Those of you living or working in the East, rejoice because Paya Lebar Quarter Mall has finally opened! Yes the massive construction that has been plaguing my eyes for the last few years whenever I have to change trains at Paya Lebar MRT interchange has finally ceased, and a new mall has sprouted in its place. So what’s the big deal about this mall since it might turn out to be just the same as any other mall? Well here are 5 things are unique to Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ), or at least not commonly found in other malls.

  1. PLQ Plaza – This huge plaza is sure to play host to numerous events and activities. But even when nothing is on, its still a great place to sit and people watch while having a takeaway meal. Yes colourful PLQ chairs and tables have been provided just for this purpose. There is a row of takeaway shops comprising cafes and a chicken rice store, so you don’t even have to step into the mall if you are pressed for time. Children too will love the sheltered spacious plaza for running about, which includes a flat fountain area (think Bugis and Clarke Quay). There is also an outdoor children’s play area
  2. Smigy Indoor Playground – You might find Smigy familiar as they are a clothing store located at Suntec City. They’ve now come up with a children’s Indoor Playground at PLQ. This is great news for parents who don’t drive because this is one of the rare few indoor playgrounds in malls connected to MRT stations. At least that is so in the East.
  3. IT big players – Is it just me or does PLQ seem to boast quite a number of big IT and Telecommunications players? They have Gadget Mix, Hua Wei, iStudio and even Challenger
  4. There’s more to PLQ than just food – What’s a person to do if they don’t want to eat or buy something? Well here are the things you can do at PLQ
    • Watch a movie at at Shaw Theatres – 12 movie halls including premium halls and an IMAX theatre with the latest laser projection technology
    • Sing Karaoke at Sing My Song Family Karaoke
    • Feed your competitive streak and need to win at Zone X arcade
    • Get your creative juices out at Our Art Studio – Art lessons, Art Jamming, Art Parties. Put some colour in your lives!
    • Take photos at the instagrammable walls with props already conveniently provided, or have your photo printed for free.
  5. A number of new to Singapore F&Bs – Well we can’t really run far away from food, so what’s new in the F&B scene? Check out Mom’s Touch, which is a South-Korean fast food chain famous hand-battered and hand-breaded chicken and burgers, brought in by the No Singboard Group. Or Fong Sheng Hao, Taiwan & Singapore’s First Charcoal Grilled Toast / Milk Tea Store. A pork and egg cheese sandwich costs about $6.50. Others include Lucky Bird (Singapore chicken rice with a modern twist), Hayai (Onigirazu without pork or lard), and Wursthans Switzerland (authentic Swiss sausages restaurant).

So there you have it, 5 things about Paya Lebar Quarter Mall that will hopefully keep the crowds coming back. Scroll down for all the pictures!

Cirque du Soleil Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities is a must watch!

A few days ago, I caught my very first Cirque du Soleil performance. The name Cirque du Soleil has been around for 3 decades, but due to various reasons including costs (it costs a pretty penny!), I’ve never been able to watch one until recently. If you’re new to Cirque du Soleil, and have the impression that they return to Singapore every couple of years or so, note that it’s not actually the same show returning. The current one being featured at Bayfront is Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities and is Cirque du Soleil’s 35th production since starting in 1984.

If you’ve never watched a Cirque du Soleil performance, now is the best chance because I am told that Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities is one of the better performances around. A Cirque du Soleil performance is not just your average circus show with acrobats and death defying acts. It’s so much more than that. It’s music, it’s theatre, its drama, it’s beautiful costumes and of course heart-stopping jaw-dropping acts, all beautifully weaved together in a fantasy storyline and whimsical stage props. Speaking of props, there are 426 props in Kurios, the most of any production in Cirque du Soleil’s history.
