Christmas Craftholic pop-up at SingPost Centre
The Christmas season has descended upon us once more, and that means food, parties… and of course, presents. Shopping for a bunch of people can be difficult given our varying tastes, which is why we’d prefer visiting stores that are one-stop locations for all sorts of items.
If you’ve yet to begin your Christmas shopping, here’s one place you can start. Between 4th – 15th December 2019, swing by SingPost Centre’s Craftholic pop-up event where you can pick up lovable Craftholic character merch, savour Craftholic-themed dishes and win plushies at their claw machines.
Here’s a rundown on what’s coming your way:
Purchase Craftholic-themed merch and dishes at the store and cafe
We can never get enough cushions to adorn our houses with, and at the Craftholic pop-up store, you can get a range of adorable plushies that look just as good as they feel.
They’ve got their own range of featured characters – namely the Korat Cat, Loris Monkey, Rab Bunny, and Sloth Bear. Other than their signature body pillows, you can also pick up items such as lunch boxes, passport holders, and even sleeping bags.
And if you’re feeling peckish amidst your hunt for Christmas gifts, pop by the nearby Craftholic cafe. For the festive season, they’ve prepared a Christmas-themed menu featuring items that are almost too pretty to eat.
You can treat yourself to bento-style dishes like their Friendship festive turkey burgers with nacho cheese chips or their Santa Sloth lovely chicken stew rice with fresh garden salad ($16.80 each).
Alternatively, those sporting a sweet tooth can instead go for their parfaits. For $13.80, you can choose between three different flavours – strawberry watermelon, matcha caramel, and mango cheesecake. There’s also a range of assorted beverages ($8) that comes either hot or cold if you simply want something to wash the food down with.
We tried the Friendship festive mango cheesecake parfait ($13.80), which was majestically decked with mangoes, cornflakes, mango ice-cream, and a slice of cheesecake, as well as their Iced Chocolate ($8), which came topped with whipped cream and a macaroon.
Sure-win claw machine game and badge-making workshops
It’s not just food and shopping here. You can also look forward to a range of activities to do while you’re at it.
For the claw machine addicts, here’s one more to add to your to-conquer list. With a minimum spend of $50* in SingPost Centre, you’ll get to redeem a chance to participate in the Sure Win Craftholic Claw Machine, where you can win Craftholic plushies in various sizes.
*Limited to the first 50 redemptions per day.
Apart from that, there are also workshops that you can participate in. Customise your own Craftholic Badge with a minimum spend of $30.
Take home exclusive Craftholic wrapping papers and colour-changing umbrellas
If there’s one thing Singaporeans love more than shopping and bubble tea, it’s receiving perks for shopping. From now till 31st December 2019, you’ll stand a chance to bring home exclusive Craftholic merchandise when you shop at SingPost Centre.
You’ll need some cute wrapping paper to complete your Christmas shopping. With a minimum spend of $80, you’ll receive 2 pieces of Craftholic Christmas wrappers – or 4 pieces, if you’re an American Express® CapitaCard member.
December’s typically a wet and stormy month, and you’ll need all the shelter you can get. With a minimum spend of $120 (or $100 if you’re an American Express® Capitacard member), you can take home a Craftholic colour-changing umbrella to arm yourself against persistent downpours.
New stores at SingPost Centre: Enjoy Thai food and mung bean smoothies
We can never get enough of Thai food, and for a new place to entice your taste buds, pay Jai Siam a visit. While they’ve got signature Thai dishes like the Green Curry (from $7 per bowl), they also serve unique appetisers such as Prawn Cakes and Pandan Chicken ($2.50 per piece) that will whet your appetite.
From now till 31st December 2019, you’ll also get a free dessert of the day with every family set menu ordered.
Hopii Mung Bean Smoothie
There’s no denying that bubble tea is love and life – but if you’ve taken one too many and are craving for something a little healthier, check out the newly-opened Hopii Mung Bean Smoothie outlet.
Hopii’s a Taiwanese beverage outlet that serves up nutritious mung bean smoothies instead of your usual milk teas. And with mung beans sporting benefits like high antioxidant levels to the ability to lower blood pressure, you might want to swap your daily sweet drinks for this.
If giving up your beloved bubble tea’s a hard thing for you, here’s something to entice you. From now till 8th December 2019, grab any of their signature Mung Bean Smoothies ($5.30) and you’ll be able to snag any of their Hopii Specials for just $1.
They’ll be holding an upcoming Christmas promo soon – keep yourself updated on their Instagram account to know more.
Sometimes we need some frozen meats to keep our fridges well-stocked for a rainy day, and in the event you’re running low, simply swing by Farm Frozen.
Between their Honey Pork Ribs (from $24) to their Halal-certified chicken products like the Steamed Skinless Chicken Breasts ($16.50), you’ll be able to snap up frozen delicacies that you can easily defrost whenever you need them.
For all your stationery needs, make sure to hit up the newly-opened MPH Bookstore. Apart from books and writing tools, you can also utilise their on-site services that include printing, courier drop-offs, and computer rental from $2.50 per hour.
