End of last year, I joined Jacelyn for an exclusive Bloggers Tour at 112 Katong Mall, located at 112 East Coast Road.
I’m quite impressed by this newly renovated mall which gives me a very cosy feel the moment I stepped in.
112 Katong is definitely a luxury shopping mall which is bringing the east side residents of SG another choice of dining, shopping and entertainment for the young and old, and everyone in the family.
112 Katong has its unique design in both the interior and exterior of the buillings. The LED lights on the building illuminate 112 Katong like a “Jewel of the East”. Its carpets walkway gives me a quiet and cost environment for shopping. I felt like a guest instead of a shopper.
Number of Levels at 112 Katong:
Basement 2 & 3 are carparks.
Basement 1, Level 1 to 5 are retail shops (Dine, Shop, Entertainment)
Level 4 is a rooftop with an open-spaced wet playground and a gigantic movie screen.
This wet playground is the perfect place for the kids to spend their time while the mother goes ahead with some serious shopping! =)
One of the many plus points at 112 Katong is its world’s first Peranakan-themed cinema by Golden Village. It consists of 8 cinema halls including 2 Gold Class halls and a Gold Class Lounge.
Here are some shots of shops at 112 Katong.

For the kids, there is this “brain-building” toy shop called Zero 2 Six. It has a wide variety of brainstorming toy games to strengthen the younger ones’ thinking and analyzing.
There is an educational centre inside 112 Katong, specially to enhance the learning skills for the young ones. It caters for age 0~6.
Toddlers can get to learn how to play by themselves or together with other kids. They get to grow and learn together in groups, conducted by professionals.
See how convenience this is? Parents get to shop for grocery and home necessities at ease while their kids are enjoying and taken care by professional guardians!
There is also an apparel shop for kids! The outfits in this shop are pretty and chic!
Parents may even get to find some of the kids outfits similar to their own!
And for most of the us, Watsons is like one of the most patronized convenience store, even when there’s nothing need to buy. For me, I just love going into the store to check “what’s new” there!
And when there’s a need to get some gifts at the last minute, fred not. Gift (it is almost full of Hello Kitty!) is available at 112 Katong!
And if you need a gift for the guys.. wine may sound a good idea!
As for food.. woah! This new mall is like a food paradise which has many different cuisine and another dining experience.
For the chinese cuisine lovers… besides the chinese cuisine, don’t forget to check out their bakery section.
Interesting restaurant name: Xiao La Jiao (in English: Chilli Padi). I bet it sells spicy food? That will be good news for hot and spicy lovers.
Korean food lovers alert! Indulge yourself in Korean food at this nice and comfy atmosphere restaurant! =D
For shabu shabu lovers (like me), don’t miss Suki-Ya! It’s one of my favourite shabu shabu buffet!
And if you like Alfresco dining, hehe, 112 Katong has it too!
Baci Italian Cafe, Din Tai Feng, Max Brenner Chocolate Bar (my favourite!), Nando’s and T.G.I.Friday’s at 112 Katong operate at extended hours!

But if you like something light and just a place for long chit-chats. Toast Box is the choice.

Last but not the least..it is very easy to find your way in this new mall!
Not to forget, there’s also a medical centre in the mall. Thomson Paediatric Centre is a subsidiary of Thomson Medical, provides general paediatric services, management of acute and chronic infections, as well as a children’s travel clinic that offers comprehensive travel advice and travel immunizations.
112 Katong has the needs for everyone and is good hangout place for family and friends. After joining Jacelyn for this Bloggers Tour, I am sure to visit this new mall again and again. Finally a new fun place to hangout for east side residents!

The tour ended off with a lunch treat at Nando’s. Gosh, I was shocked by the generosity in the food portion which Nando’s had for us!!
Review of my food feast at Nando’s in the next blog post.
The skincare in pink which I’ve promised will be up soon!
As you shop, lookout for the Peranakan-inspired motifs within the building. *wink*
