Square 2 Christmas Deals
As we begin the countdown to Christmas, the voice telling you to check off your to-do list gets ever louder. Buy gifts! Arrange meet-ups! Schedule that beauty appointment to look great at the party!
It can get a little, just a little, overwhelming. But head down to Square 2 at Novena, and you’ll find just the right mix of shops to get you sorted. Pick up accessories to gift a loved one, get camera-ready with a facial or plan for a festive get-together at one of their restaurants – the possibilities are endless.
In the spirit of giving, Square 2 will also be giving away $5 Far East Malls Vouchers to TSL readers this Christmas with no minimum spend! So the next time you’re making your shopping rounds, think beyond town and head a few MRT stops down to Novena instead.
Here’s what’s in store for you:
Uncle Kiisu – for big group outings that’ll earn you the title of best planner
The IG-worthy decor of Uncle Kiisu (#02-65) beckoned us in, but it was the quirky fusion of Japanese, Western and Peranakan cuisine that made us stay.
Here, we had a feast of gargantuan mains such as the #TheWharf ($18.80) – a laksa-inspired dish with soft shell crab, and #ChahanUnagi ($21.80) – aromatic rice topped with a very generous Unagi slice respectively.
(From top left, clockwise: #ChahanUnagi, #SambalKuroRibs, #BlackedFriesDay, #TheWharf, #TruffleSpamBruschetta, #KiisuMuahChee, with #SamuraiKuehPieTee in the centre)
Our carnivorous friend also devoured the #SambalKuroRibs ($9.80), ribs glazed with buah keluak sauce for a distinct Peranakan touch. For those with smaller appetites, we recommend their unique sides such as youtiao bruschetta, fries with squid ink and their refreshing twist on kueh pie tee.
There’s also the #MythicalChawanmushi ($3.80), so named for the fantastical “unicorn” jelly crowned atop a sea of ikura roe. Dig in and be treated to an instant burst of flavour, as the truffle-infused jelly melts into the steamed egg custard, a perfect pairing to the hotate (scallop) in the dish.
Uncle Kiisu’s wallet-friendly prices, Instagrammable dishes and generous portions will definitely earn you major points among your friends and family if you suggest it as a dining venue!
Ja’zz De Luxe – for affordable facials and $10 lash perms to look great in an instant
It’s no secret that we want to look our best during the festive season. But after spending quite a tidy sum on gifting, we just can’t afford to splurge on expensive beauty treatments.
Enter Ja’zz De Luxe (#03-83) which offers the BB Glow Facial at just $18. It promises to rejuvenate your tired skin (blame all that OT) so that your complexion is radiant once again.
You can also score $10 lash perms if you download and flash the ShopFarEast app. Considering most lash perms go for above $30, this is one ridiculously good deal. Say “hello” to peepers rimmed with curved, fluttery lashes that’ll make you look wide awake and as if you’re wearing mascara 24/7.
Tip: if you work around the area, you can pop in during lunch for a quick beauty boost as the sessions last only 20-30 minutes.
Awfully Chocolate – for gorgeous cakes to bring to your festive party
These massive beauties can feed 12-16 people!
Cakes are a staple of any celebration, and Awfully Chocolate (#01-14) should be no stranger to anyone who loves decadent chocolate-laden ones.
This Christmas, they’ve got your backs when it comes to ordering cakes that will leave everyone cooing at the dinner table. Behold seasonal specials like Creme Brûlée, Black Forest and Salted Caramel Chocolate cake (all $98 each for 2kg).
These aren’t just pretty on the outside – the insides are packed with gorgeous layers too. Think fresh white chocolate cream sandwiched between dark chocolate in a salted caramel swirl.
Tip: For those with a busy lifestyle, you can pre-order your cakes online and drop by any of the branches to pick em’ up for zero fuss!
dress code – for quirky Korean dresses to stand out at outings
In this festive season, you might be rushing from one appointment to another. So, it’s imperative that your outfit fits all dress codes, looks unique and is hopefully not a tight number that will reveal those bumps after one too many rich Christmas feasts.
Sounds like a tall order? Well, not at dress code (#02-70), a quirky boutique that is packed with Korean-inspired dresses. Here, the dresses are high-quality and boast intriguing cuts and prints that will ensure you never look cookie-cutter. From vintage to bohemian styles, they’ve got it all.
We’re also digging the colourful accessories here. From retro headbands to exquisite earrings, these are sure to spruce up your outfit. We can already hear the “Wow, where did you get these?” questions headed your way.
You can also get these patterned headbands as a gift for that fashionable friend.
Pick out some hand-assembled earrings from $15.90.
SKiNN Lash – for lash extensions and Korean IPL
If you want to look effortlessly made-up without spending hours at the mirror in the morning, here’s an idea: lash extensions. At SKiNN Lash (#B1-135), you can make your lashes look as va-va-voom as you want with designs in a whole variety of volume and colour. There are mink lashes, 6D designs and even coloured lashes for the adventurous.
Their Korean Lash-by-Lash Extension is now going for just $68, which is an utter steal!
SkiNN Lash also has a special promotion for those of you who’ve downloaded the ShopFarEast app – you can try out a Korean IPL session at the wallet-friendly price of $38 (U.P $138).
Miss Empire – for accessories that’ll add a dash of sparkle
If you’re looking for something to gift mum, a relative or a dear friend this season, Miss Empire (#01-137) could be up your alley. Here, a sparkling array of accessories await you – ranging from statement necklaces to cutesy earrings to crystal-encrusted keychains.
Check out the Parisian-inspired Audrey’s collection, an elegant, allergy-free range with premium diamond-cut crystals and 18K gold plating. You can even score matching accessories for you and your loved ones with the festive 1-for-1 promotion.
But don’t fret if something else has caught your eye. There’s a buy 2, get 1 free promotion for all other accessories, and it even comes with gift wrapping.
Plus, if you hit a minimum spend of $120, you’ll get a free Magical Unicorn Keyring that’ll look adorable on your shelf.
