Doraemon at AMK Hub & Jurong Point
The one thing that most of us growing up with Doraemon is envious of: Doraemon’s magical pocket and his ability to pull out anything based on his imagination, especially when it comes to getting his best friend Nobita out of trouble.
From 15th November – 26th December 2019, you can inch closer to your dream of getting your own magic robo cat from the future ‘cos Doraemon will be making his way to AMK Hub and Jurong Point. This pop-up event is filled with giant inflatables, meet-and-greets, art workshops and exclusive merch for shoppers!

Instead of waddling off on a new adventure with his friends, Doraemon will be putting up a dance performance at both AMK Hub and Jurong Point from 6th – 8th December and 13th – 15th December 2019. The 30 minutes of weeble wobbling will be followed by a meet-and-greet session for fans to get up close and personal with this childhood icon.
All you need to do is to spend $30 within either shopping mall to gain a free pass. But take note that only 25 passes can be redeemed per session so make sure you’re among the first! There will be a few sessions running throughout the 2 weeks so that’s plenty of chances to befriend Doraemon.
