One of the newer malls that has just sprung up next to the amazingly big JEM, it is part of the competition in the area. Since I usually stay closer to the central area of Singapore, I rarely take a trip down to the West side of Singapore.

Upon arriving, I was surprised to find mega-malls (if you can call it that) present. In fact, all the shops that I frequent were there at JEM - from H&M to uniqlo to even blogshopping! To pair that sweetly, Westgate seems to be a nest for the people with a more expensive tastebud, almost similar to the concept of ION. If I were to live in Jurong I would never have to go to town, now tell me why doesn't Toa Payoh or Bishan have something like that? Westgate is also easily accessible by the MRT and through JEM, which makes it even more perfect. Two mega-malls being connected (indirectly) which makes shopping more exciting - you double the shops, you double the fun.

Westgate is seriously awesome you should go there ASAP if you haven't done so!

Westgate offers shops which are lacking in Jem and J cube, like Tim Ho Wan, which is a very very popular Hong Kong dessert store. And there are 'town shops' like Typo, Borders and even Isetan. I love how Westgate is much more spacious as compared to Jem, so even though the mall may be crowded it's still really easy to walk around.

As someone who lives in the west, I can't tell you how excited I am at all these developments in the Jurong area. Honestly speaking, I don't think I ever need to go to Orchard anymore because what for, when I can find one right at my doorstep!

Hahaha.

Being a west-er all my life, Jurong definitely feels like home to me and so I'm definitely excited whenever new developments appear anywhere around my neighborhood.

NOW WHO CAN SAY JURONG IS 'NO GOOD'?
NOW WHO CAN SAY JURONG IS 'DEAD'?
NOW WHO CAN SAY JURONG IS 'BORING'?
*so much angst at 4 in the morning*

Hahaha i kid. But anyway, I've always received similar comments from other people about Jurong. I'm so relieved and happy that Jurong is progressing to become the next hip area in Singapore with not 3, but FOUR new malls, one general hospital and a hotel. SAY WHATTTT.

Being so psyched with the idea of another new mall (besides jcube and JEM), i rushed to check it out yesterday, even though it's not fully opened yet. The mall is linked directly to the bus interchange which makes it incredibly accessible and convenient for shoppers. The place has a land space equivalent to that of Raffles City Shopping Centre and houses brands like Braun Buffel, Kate Spade and Coach, coupled with upmarket stores like Isetan and many many more. (so excited so excited)

And hoho, dim sum lovers rejoice (specifically those staying in Jurong/nearby) cause TIM HO WAN'S NEW BRANCH IS HEREEEE. Oh and Borders book store.

More rejoice baby.

When I first entered this mall, I immediately told myself that it was just a hybrid of JEM and Star Vista. Some parts of it is open-air, devoid of air conditioning, which resembles Star Vista, while the fact that it offers trendy stores such as Coach, which is a boutique, and definitely the huge overload of clothing stores, including Isetan. There are also quite a few sports outlets, including World of Sports and fitness first, and also electronic stores. What is lacking in the other three malls is available here.

It also has gift shops, which is apparently what malls in Jurong East lack, including the store called Typo. The mall also houses a very large playground on the roof, similar to Jem. The mall is very family friendly, and I like the fact that it also has so many trendy shops to cater to the teenage population. And oh my God it has a Borders! I am so happy! It is certainly the best mall to shop in the Jurong East area.
