Velocity@Novena Square – new stores in 2021
When you think of heading to town to gaigai, the first place that springs to mind would probably be the shopping belt along Orchard Road. But if you’ve been to the same few malls so often that you can memorise their directories by heart, head to Velocity@Novena Square for a change in scenery – located just one MRT stop away.
Hop by the new stores that are springing up this 2021, like the ever-so-famous CHICHA San Chen bubble tea, City Donut – a donut shop serving up localised flavours like orh nee and Milo dinosaur, plus beauty retailers and salons to have you looking fresh for the new year.
Velocity@Novena Square is also giving out freebies like angbaos, abalone and $50 Dining Vouchers for CNY. Read till the end to find out how you can redeem them.
Get your dose of premium BBT at CHICHA San Chen
You’ve probably witnessed snaking queues in front of every CHICHA San Chen outlet – and with good reason. The cult-favourite is now open at Velocity@Novena Square (#01-07), serving up refreshing cups of premium, freshly brewed bubble tea.
Their teas range from the classic best-selling Bubble Milk Tea ($4.50) to unorthodox concoctions like the brand new Creamy Lemon Tart ($5.70), made with high mountain pouchong tea, lemon juice and mousse.
Taro fans can check out their Fresh Taro Series ($5.70 each) which is only available at eight outlets, with Velocity@Novena Square being one of them. The series comprises four unique variations, ranging from latte with taro pearls to fresh milk mixed with mashed taro.

Opening in February 2021, City Donut (#01-72) at Velocity@Novena Square will be Singapore’s first outlet in a shopping mall. They serve up gourmet donuts in a slew of unconventional flavours, like the aromatic Coffee Donut ($1.80) featuring strong java notes and Citrus Yuzu Donut ($2.50) if you prefer something light and tangy.
Check out their Orh Nee Donut ($2.50) if you’re a fan of the local yam paste dessert
They also have uniquely Singaporean flavoured donuts that even your ah gongs and ah mas will enjoy, like the chocolatey Milo Dinosaur Donut ($2.20), fragrant Pandan Ondeh Ondeh Donut ($2.80) and even a yam-infused Orh Nee Donut ($2.50).
Achieve soft and silky hair at Monsoon/Dr. Moto Hair Aesthetics Clinic
Whether you’re gunning for a hair revamp for the new year or are dealing with issues like hair loss, Monsoon/Dr. Moto Hair Aesthetics Clinic (#03-29/31) is equipped to give you healthy, runway-ready tresses.
As their first outlet that has both a hair aesthetics clinic and a salon meshed into one, you’ll be able to tackle your hair and scalp issues while getting a style makeover at the same time.
A hairdo can make or break your look, so take advantage of their promo for a comprehensive CNY Blossom promo, comprising Cut + Colour + Hair treatment at $288 (U.P. $369), done by their leading stylist. If a receding hairline has been bugging you, nip it in the bud with their Dr. Moto JetPeel Hydro Hair Growth Treatment, available at $300 for a first trial promo (U.P. $488).
Simply flash this article to any of the staff members to receive a Complimentary Shiseido Professional Sublimic 250ML shampoo when you opt for the CNY Blossom Promo (Cut + Color + Hair treatment).
Get your lashes and brows done at Beauty Mansion
For girls who belong to the #ShortLashes and #ThinBrows group just like me, consider getting them amped up at Beauty Mansion (#02-38). They offer solutions like eyelash extensions and semi-permanent makeup powder brows so you can shave precious minutes off your daily makeup routine.
If you’ve always dreamt of having long, dramatic lashes, skip mascara altogether and go for an eyelash extension like their promotional Abby lashes service at $66 (U.P. $79). You can even customise the extension to any length you desire, from au naturel to va-va-voom. Be sure to head down before 11th February 2021 to enjoy this discounted rate.

They’ll be opening up a branch in Velocity@Novena Square come March, so keep your eyes peeled for popular brands like Dr. Belmeur, CNP Laboratory and belif.
The best part is, they carry an emphasis on using premium, nature-derived ingredients in their products. This means anything you slather on your precious face will only soothe and nourish your skin, especially beneficial for ladies suffering from sensitive skin.
