So what if Singapore is hot all year round? Who cares if there is not even the slightest chance of snowing in Singapore? The festive season is round the corner and it is the one period in the calendar year that everyone in the cheekiemonkie family looks forward to the most.
But if there is one thing I dread whenever Christmas rolls along, it has got to be the insane human traffic along Orchard Road. Luckily though, one can always count on the heartland malls for great festive deals too and if you are intending to fill up Christmas stockings at AMK Hub, you are in luck - there is an amazing selection of holiday-themed offers, rewards and magical fun waiting to be discovered!
Located in the heart of Ang Mo Kio, did you know that it offers a whopping 48,250 square metres of shopping space with an attractive tenant mix of over 200 shops? All these, spread over four-storeys and three basement levels! No wonder the mall was a hive of activity when I paid it a visit over the weekend to do some early Christmas shopping.
Do you spy the number grid on the right side in the above photo? You will do well to remember that, especially if you spend $80 (or $160 at FairPrice Xtra) at AMK Hub from now until 28 December 2014. Just pop over to the Information Counter at Basement 1 with your receipt/s and try your hand at the Instant Festive Wins. Simply match 3 of the same Christmas icons and you might just win one fantastic prize! Prizes include a TAKA Jewellery Diamond Pendant, AMK Hub Vouchers, Dreams Collage Timepieces , 42" LG Smart LED TV, Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 and even an OSIM uDiva! The wifey will definitely be eyeing the latter for sure.
Even greater news if you are a Plus! Member and/or Citibank Cardmember, as you only need to spend $60 (or $120 at FairPrice Xtra) to have a go at the Instant Festive Win. Do note, however that the Instant Festive Wins is limited to 1 chance per shopper per day.
And since Christmas is not really Christmas without the act of giving, shoppers will be able to receive a Sweet X'mas Dreams neck pillow for FREE when they spend $150 (or $300 at FairPrice Xtra). Four designs will be released periodically from 21 November 2014 onwards, and they are strictly available while stocks last.
Again, lucky Plus! Members and Citibank Cardmembers need to spend only $120 (or $240 at FairPrice Xtra) to redeem one free neck pillow... which is also limited to one piece per shopper by the way.
I managed to snag the pink-striped neck pillow for Ale but guess who hogged it in the end?
In Ayd's words: "It was just too comfortable to resist!"
I don't think he will be able to resist too if I told him about Candy X'mas Photo Contest, where he could just win $100 AMK Hub vouchers for himself! Taking part is super easy - just use your phone to snap a photo of yourself or your kids with any Christmas decorations at AMK Hub.
The 10 most Candy Luscious photos will win $100 AMK Hub Vouchers each. You have until 28 December 2014 to enter the photo contest but my suggestion is to submit your entry early because we all know how procrastination can be such a bummer sometimes.
