I hardly visit the west side of Singapore, but when I do, I only visit the best mall. Heh! The west has changed so much since my graduation from NTU; I used to think of the west-side malls as heartland malls where we find the pharmacies and not-so-cool fashion brands. My most recent trip to this new mall called Westgate changed my impression of how the “heartland” malls are not so heartland anymore now! I spied big brands like Calvin Klein Jeans, Desigual, Sacoor Brothers, A|X Armani Exchange, COS (I love!) for fashion, and F&B big guys like Paul Bakery, Tim Ho Wan, Brozeit and Crystal Jade just to name a few. I love the whole design of the mall as well with one part of the mall called the Courtyard going green with an alfresco concept. It is no surprise that my favourite Tokyu Hands has chosen Westgate to have their first Singapore store! For a while, I forgot that I was in Jurong because it really felt downtown Orchard!
