The countdown stands at just about 2 weeks left until Christmas. Have you gotten presents for your loved one yet? If you’re a Grade A procrastinator, chances are, you’re waiting till the last minute before haphazardly putting together items from around your home in a gift bag.
Well, consider this your gentle reminder to get your Christmas shopping done now. We suggest heading to UOL Malls – United Square, Velocity@Novena Square, and KINEX – to do it. Not only are there new stores to shop at, your spending could even win a staycay. Here are the details:
Shop new tenants at UOL Malls
If it’s been a hot minute since you visited any UOL Mall, then it’s time to head back to check out the new tenants available:

Pair their new outfits with shoes from KATETU (#B1-72), another new shop at United Square, which sells a diverse range of shoes made for toddlers. This includes cute sandals and Mary Janes for girls and sports shoes for boys to furry booties suitable for winter. Each pair comes with a padded heel and cushioned sole to prevent blisters and make walking comfortable for your little ones.

While you might visit Velocity@Novena Square to pick up specialised equipment for extreme sports, make a stop at the newly-opened Tech House (#02-K2) too. They sell gadgets and gizmos aplenty, like protective cases for phones and camera mounts so you can capture all the action you’re putting yourself through.
There’s even Welcia-BHG (#02-30), if you’re thinking of treating yourself to a bit of pampering after a hiking or cycling trip. The Japanese beauty store sells skincare products and health supplements imported from Japan.

Easties, here’s yet another East Side Best Side reason; there’s a bunch of new restaurants opening up at KINEX. This includes A Hot Hideout (#01-45), a mala restaurant that NTU students might recognise from Banyan Hall. Now there’s no need to travel all the way west to savour their fresh ingredients in mala xiang guo and mala soup.
You can even get bburing fries as a side to your chicken.Image credit: Eatbook
If the spice proves too much to handle, you might want to head over to BHC Chicken (#B1-36) instead. The famed Korean fried chicken shop is known for their special bburing flavour, which is a blend of cheese, garlic, and onion powders that generously coat each piece of chicken.
If you don’t have time for a sit-down meal, you can always dig into local faves like bak chor mee and laksa from Fu Ji Fishball Noodle (#B1-30). You’ll want to wash all that down with something refreshing, thankfully Ju Fu De Cha (#B1-K2) has just opened up. The bubble tea store focuses on fruity teas like grapefruit and mango teas.
Celebrate Christmas with Robocar Poli & festive bazaars
While you’re out shopping, keep note of these events that are also taking place at the UOL Malls.
Have the kids tag along with you when you visit United Square, especially if they’re fans of Robocar Poli. For one, there’s a photo op right outside the mall featuring characters from the show.

The pics are keepsakes you’ll want to hang on your fridge, but if you want to create core memories for the kiddos then don’t have them miss the chance to meet Poli and the gang. There are Robocar Poli shows happening every day except Tuesday from now till 17th December 2023, where the cast will sing and dance familiar tunes from the show.
If you spend $30 in a single receipt, your kids will even be able to meet the cast at an exclusive meet and greet session. Do note it’s only open to the first 50 families before each show, so you’ll want to ensure you’re early to avoid any disappointment.

You can even sign your kids up for a kids’ workshop. Parents, you’ll need to be a U-POPP member and spend $80 in 3 same-day receipts in order to get a workshop pass for junior. After which, they’ll get to participate in creative crafts like making pom pom collages, glowing bottle dioramas, and Christmas ornaments for your tree. The workshops will take place from 16th-23rd December 2023.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit from Santa, and you’ll meet him in the flesh on the weekends of 9th-10th and 16th-17th December 2023 at 1pm and 4pm. He and his snowman buddy will be roaming around the mall handing out candy – regardless if you’ve been naughty or nice this year.
If you miss Santa at United Square, don’t worry, he’ll also be at Velocity@Novena Square on 16th-17th and 23rd-24th December at 1pm and at KINEX on 24th-25th December at 12pm-2pm.
