The last couple of weeks has been really crazy for all of us in the retailing business. Running around frantically from one construction site to the next, eating dust while arguing over blueprints and technical drawings and not to mentioned getting a bad case of hat hair after donning those silly safety helmets. Why you ask? Well… for some bizarre reason all 3 new malls decides to open before the end of September. We have The Pavilion, Mid Valley Gardens, and Sunway Pyramid II.
And out of all the 3 new malls, I’m pretty excited about the Pavilion in Bukit Bintang area. As a fellow blogger Savante puts it on a recent post:
Been to the spanking new mall in town, the Pavilion ( was there any doubt? ) and I believe it rocks! Amazing design, endless plazas, airy wakways… the mall’s not fully open yet but it shows such sweet promise.
And one of the many promises apart from a great shopping experience is the coming of FOOD REPUBLIC. I have never been a fan of any food courts at all, but a visit to Singapore’s Vivo City earlier in the year has managed to convinced me otherwise (a little). Food Republic at Vivo City isn’t just a regular food court, it’s an experience…and below are some of the few reasons why I am excited that it’s going to open in Pavilion:
6. Most of all, food’s GREAT!
From what I heard, all the stores in this food court were plucked from popular street hawkers and sidewalks peddlers around Singapore to be placed in one place. No wonder food here’s good
My only concern is that, I hope the one in Pavilion doesn’t serve Singaporean food, but encourages popular Malaysia hawkers from different states to open here…we’ll wait and see! Until then, there’s J.Co Donuts to keep me happy!
