Celebrate CNY 2022 with UOL malls

It hasn’t been long since we left 2021 in the dust, and in a blink of an eye we’re already getting ready for the Chinese New Year festivities. UOL malls are offering you the chance to usher in 2022 with a whole lot of huat

From redeeming uniquely-designed cookware to winning hotel stays and dining vouchers at the Instant Spin & Win, here’s what you can get up to before chu yi starts at UOL malls like KINEX, United Square, and Velocity@Novena Square.

Redeem cookware like pot and bowl sets

Pen cai is one of the quintessential CNY reunion dinner dishes, and you’ll always see it served in a gorgeous pot. If you’re the one in charge of said dish for this year, you can wow your family by presenting the pen cai in a unique prosperity bowl or reunion pot.

The cookware was designed by differently-abled artists from the ASPN Chaoyang School that caters towards students with special needs and a keen eye for the artistic.

The bowl’s artwork was designed by 12-year-old Aedam Wan with a traditional Chinese village in mind

You can redeem this set by spending a minimum of $388 across five same-day receipts. U-POPP members will get to redeem it with just $288.

This pot* can be redeemed with a minimum spend of $488 in the same day across five combined receipts. U-POPP members can redeem the pot at just $388 instead.

*The reunion pot has been fully redeemed at KINEX, but is still available at Velocity@Novena Square and United Square.

Some of the prizes up for grabs include staycations at Pan Pacific Singapore, PARKROYAL Collection Pickering, and PARKROYAL Collection Marina Bay that are perfect for recharging after all the days of bai nian.

More prizes include dining vouchers to the restaurants at the hotels, so if you still have an appetite after snacking on pineapple tarts, it wouldn’t hurt to go for a buffet at Lime or Peppermint Restaurant.

Shoppers can combine up to a maximum of three receipts from the same day to hit that $88 or $68 mark.

Check out new stores opening at KINEX, United Square, & Velocity

To commemorate the new year, new stores are opening their doors at all three of UOL’s malls, and here are some of the fresh faces you can expect to see.
