Less than 2 weeks to Christmas and if you are not done with shopping for gifts, AMK Hub may potentially be your lifesaver.
Notwithstanding all the fantastic prizes (which I have shared a few weeks back) that you can win on the spot - and who can forget the colour-changing umbrellas that one can redeem??? - the children will be hoping for MORE shopping to be done just so that they can visit the Christmas Wonderland at its B1 Exhibition Hall!
Just spend $60 ($120 at FairPrice Xtra) from now till 22 December 2013 to redeem an entry pass (Each entry pass admits 1 child aged 12 & below, and 1 accompanying adult). If you are a Plus! Member, better yet- you need to spend only $50 ($100 at FairPrice Xtra)!
And there are tons of activities to keep the kids happy (and busy)!
Yes, Ash for one was getting impatient by all my photo-taking. He was eyeing the 'The Arts of Christmas' station, where he will get to choose one of the following craft activity: Snowman-making, Christmas Tree-making or Christmas-themed Colouring.
But that is just one of the 5 activities to delight the children. They can get their faces painted with colourful designs or get a shiny glitter tattoo at the 'Best Face of Christmas' booth.
Or if a more physical activity is preferred, they can jump to their hearts' content in the Bouncy Castle at the 'Christmas Bounce' booth!
Of course, there is nothing like bagging a strike at the 'Mini Bowling Game' booth to round up a day of fun.
And if you thought that these activities only appealed to younger kids... well, then you haven't met mine. Ayd, in particular, was raring to try out all of the five activities. And his fave of the lot?
The 'Christmas Animal Rides', that's what!
And there is nothing like a Christmas-themed LIVE show to get us all in the festive mood - from 13 to 22 December 2013, catch the 'Saving Frosty with Your Magic' show at AMK Hub's B1 Exhibition Hall and help Santa, Elf and Rudolf on their rescue mission to save the kidnapped Frosty. Showtimes are 4pm and 7pm between Monday and Thursday, and 1pm, 4pm and 7pm between Friday and Sunday.
But that's not all - get to meet the roving Christmas Troop - consisting of Santa, Reindeer, Snowman and friends - as you shop away every weekend from now until 29 December 2013. Catch the characters you want to meet at the following days and times:
Santa & Santarina: Sat, 2pm
Elf & Reindeer: Sat, 5pm
Snowman & Gingerbread Man: Sun, 2pm
Popcorn Man: Sun, 5pm
Oh, and did I mention there will be FREE popcorn given away too? Popcorn redemption is on a while stocks last basis and limited to 1 pack per shopper, so keep your eyes peeled for Popcorn Man to grab those popcorn!
Besides enjoying the popcorn, kids will no doubt be delighted to catch some bubbles too! Happening everyday at 8pm (with an additional 6pm time slot on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays) from now till to 29 December 2013, indulge in Snow & Bubbles Fun at the Main Entrance of AMK Hub and watch kids' faces light up with glee.
To top it all off, don't miss the Grand Christmas Parade, where everyone will be able to march alongside the Christmas Parachute Troop - all 18 of them and dance to merry tunes with the Tomato Juniors! The parade will be happening on 14, 15, 21 & 22 December 2013, 7.30pm from Level 3 to AMK Hub's Main Entrance.
So yes, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. :)
