And for this... we were given a BiG Ang Pow by the secretary of the retail association of Hong Kah Point. Wanna Guess How Much Is It? :P
I went down with one of my friend who was also selected for this event last Saturday. We had a good time shopping around there, exploring the place, having good food and playing around.
EAT, SHOP and PLAY!
It was a truly rewarding one...
Read on you would know... :)
BUT Before that...
Let me intro you to Hong Kah Point.
Hong Kah Point (HKP) is a charming neighbourhood centre in Jurong West, Hong Kah Point consists of more than a 100 retail shops selling a wide variety of products from trendy fashion wear to electronic goods at delightful heartland prices. It also has a food centre with 60 stalls serving up a wide variety of delicious local cuisines.
Hong Kah Point, which is famous for fruits, also attracts many visitors from all over Singapore every year. Come during June, when the tropical fruits season starts, and indulge your self in the wide variety of mouth-watering durians, mangosteens and sumptuous fruits here.
Besides the “Fruit Paradise” reputation, this place has also been lovingly named the “Chinatown of the West”. This is due to the bustling Chinese New Year Fair that Hong Kah Point holds annually. One of the largest New Year market in the west, residents look forward to this fair every year where they can soak in the lively festive mood and shop from a huge and wonderful range of New Year products and goodies available for sale.
There are also traditional Chinese medical halls selling exotic herbs. Enter into the confectioneries and you would be tempted by the wide range of yummy buns, breads and pastries.
