From upbeat Chinese New Year songs we’ve heard since we were kids to stocking up on your favourite snacks for house-visiting, there’s a certain air of excitement each CNY.
Kallang Wave Mall is upping the ante throughout January 2020 with freebies, photo ops, zodiac readings and roving God of Fortune appearances within the mall, plus giveaways of rainbow calligraphy, calligraphy fans and cute clay figurines to give your CNY decor an auspicious touch.
Free ang baos and limited edition mouse cups
If there’s one thing we all need throughout CNY, it’s ang baos. A.k.a red packets in which to stuff cash and bestow upon your relatives as blessings for the new year. Simply spend $50 at Kallang Wave Mall from now till 31st Jan to redeem a set of 6 ang baos with sleek holographic designs.

Purchases of $180 and above ($220 for purchases made at FairPrice Xtra) will get you a free limited edition, double-wall mouse cup to usher in the Year of the Rat. Good-bye, environmentally-detrimental paper cups!
Giveaways for rainbow calligraphy, clay figurines & calligraphy fans
Decking your house out in full-fledged CNY decor can cost quite a pretty penny, especially if you’re striving for aesthetics over tackiness. After all, a tasteful prop could make or break all those bai nian OOTDs and family photos where all your relatives are finally reunited.
Kallang Wave Mall will be giving away rainbow calligraphy, figurines meticulously crafted from clay, and traditional Chinese fans painted with calligraphy quotes to its shoppers.
Something for every age group and stylistic preference, meaning the whole tribe’s sure to be delighted.
To redeem one of the above, all you have to do is spend $30 and head down for collection between 1PM-8PM on the following weekends: 4th – 5th, 11th – 12th, 18th – 19th Jan.
Purchases of $50 and above will also entitle you to a traditional candy art piece of your choosing on 18th & 19th Jan between 1PM-7PM. Making use of just searing hot caramelised sugar, the artist whips up grand designs of dragons, phoenixes and more.
CNY photo ops, lion dance performance & zodiac readings
It’s the dawn of a new year, and we’re all eager to see how our fortunes will unfold in 2020. Kallang Wave Mall will have zodiac readings forecasting your luck in terms of health, wealth, romance and career.
There’ll also be eye-catching photo ops exuding cheery CNY vibes, complete with cute mouse mascots for you to strike a pose with. Perfect to send as personalised New Year’s greetings to your beloved friends and fam!
Swing by on 11th – 12th and 18th -19th Jan to catch the roving God of Fortune at 6.30PM. The God of Fortune will be making his rounds to bless all mall-goers with utmost prosperity.
Come 1st Feb, there’ll be a Lion Dance performance happening at 2PM. From the infectious beats of the Chinese drums to the skilful movements of the highly trained lion dancers, it’s a show you won’t want to miss.
