Don Don Doki opens its third outlet at City Square Mall, and this is largest outlet in Singapore yet!

In case you are unfamiliar with Don Don Donki, it is a concept store selling products only made in Japan or of Japanese concept and is famed for low-priced yet quality Japanese goods.

And its newest store at City Square Mall will be its biggest one by far in Singapore with THREE unique features: a more extensive perishables and delicatessen offering, a food court and a bargain section.

Expect to find loads of offerings ranging from fruits and vegetables to meat, and from rice and noodles to snacks and everyday essentials.

In short, it is practically like a Japanese supermarket!

 The sushi looks quite cheap too... something that I think the monkies will love!

Looking for meat options for that Chinese New Year steamboat reunion dinner? You will be spoilt for choice here.

$10 for a pack of premium meat sounds pretty okay to me!

I don't know about you but I feel somewhat happy while strolling along the shopping aisles... I think it must be the explosion of coulours all around!

Kids (and adults) will love the BARGAIN SECTION, which allows for customers to hunt for treasure bargains starting from $1!!!

This area mimics the signature Don Quijote displays in Japan that use carton boxes and handwritten price tags.

There are truly some good bargains to be found here... I got a bunch of water balloons for only $1! And some Sanrio cutesy socks for the wifey and Ale at $4 per pair!

Hungry after all the bargain hunting? Head to the FOOD COURT which houses five different stores.

Stalls include the Tokyo Heijoen which procures only top quality Wagyu beef from all over Japan.

All I can say is you have to try the Wagyu beef - just the right amount of fat and oh-so-tender!!!

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka is well-known to be delicious to the very last drop.

Its seasoned broth is boiled for more than 17 hours and never reboiled to maintain and preserve the subtle sweetness and fragrance it is famed for.

Kaisen Bonta's signature dish is the grilled unagi (eel) which is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

Rang Mang Shokudo's speciality lies in its mouth-watering fried chicken which is handmade and best eaten with its 20 customised sauces.

For dessert, look no further than Naganum Ice Co-ie which offers its signature Hokkaido milk ice cream and assortment of cream puffs.

There is also a selection of other Japanese cuisine too, ranging from Japanese croqutte, Omu-soba and its die-die-must-try sweet potato.

Don Don Donki at City Square Mall occupies the space vacated by Toys 'R' Us at B2, and opens officially on 11 January 2019, 10am. Operating hours will be from 9am to 12 midnight daily thereafter.

Come 12 January 2019, Saturday, there'll be a new place to hang out if you are bringing the kids to VivoCity - the ultra-spacious library@harbourfront! In fact, it is the largest public library in a Singapore mall!

Located on Level 3 of VivoCity - and occupying the previous Daiso store's space - the library spans 3,000 sqm and houses a refreshed collection of 200,000 books, magazones and audio-vidual materials. More importantly, it has a view to die for.

Inspired by its proximity to Sentosa and the sea, the new library adopts a coastal theme with waves in hues of blue and green. And it is designed with two distinct zones - one for adults and teens, and the other for children.


And trust me when I say that kids will flock to the Children's Zone likes bees to honey.

This space features an Early Literacy collection for young readers aged 6 and below, as well as books for older children aged 7 to 12. There will also be a dedicated audio-visual and magazine collection where young readers can explore a wide range of learning materials.

What I love about the Children's Zone is the addition of soecially-designed reading spaces AND activity areas where kids and parents can read and learn together.

And for the first of its kind children's makerspace in a library for kids, look no further than the Tinker Truck!

Targeted at children aged 3 to 9, this dedicated space will enable kids to develop their creative, problem-solving and early literacy skills through a range of activities such as paper crafts and word puzzles.

Kids can also head into the Stories Come Alive room for a totally different experience.

It makes use of moving images, light and sound effects to make storytelling an immersive and interactive experience for kids.

In addition, kids can also discover Augmented Reality books on topics such as Space, Animals and Body Health, which will make reading a more interactive experience!


One unqiue feature of this zone is it will be volunteer-run and houses flexible programming areas.

Besides offering 2 Reading Lounges, this zone also incoporates a Learning Zone and flexible working spaces for different programmes to be held.

But I think most of the visitors will be flocking to the Reading Lounges.

Because of the sweeping scenic views that the areas offer.

Perfect way to spend the day, no? And it's FREE too! 😁

Oh, do let the kids try returning their borrowed books at library@harbourfront as they will be able to have a clear view of how their returned books are being sorted by the AutoSorter at the Book Drop!
