~ 112 Katong in Penarakan Style ~

Last weekend, we ventured into another new shopping mall in the Eastern suburb of Singapore - 112 Katong (formerly known as Katong Mall). The name was emerged from its strategic address, 112 East Coast Road. Somehow, I got confused with the logo as it looks like "I12" (aka I want to) instead.

The revamped six-storeys shopping mall has two basement levels (car park) and a rooftop landscaped garden with wet playground on Level 4. It seems like a trend/attraction to have a wet play area within the shopping malls. Probably to attract more families with children. Unfortunately, we didn't knew about the playground and missed out the fun. :(

If you keep a good lookout, you may noticed the Peranakan-inspired motifs within the shopping mall. Golden Village has a Penarakan-themed multiplex with 8 cinema halls, 2 Gold Class halls and a Gold Class lounge which we tried to take a peek.

There are many more retail shops withing 112 Katong, adding a new trend of lifestyle and bringing customers back for an enjoyable shopping experience in the neighborhood.
