Wanna soak up the CNY spirit? Head to Chinatown Point for all the excitement...
The lanterns are out and the festive music is playing… we know Chinatown is a must-visit stop for Chinese New Year. But don’t leave after shopping at the street stalls, Chinatown Point has more festive fun to offer!
Goodies in abundance
Kele, Awfully Chocolate, Eureka Snacks, Kazo and more vendors will be at the Spring Fair to provide all the indulgent treats. If you’ve given pineapple tarts and Bak Kwa as CNY gifts way too often, there are also craftworks and ornaments that you can purchase from the fair. Alternatively, Luo Lan has got some auspicious flowers in store. Get your shopping done and you can even redeem a Sure-Win Fortune Cookie with a $98 minimum spend. Crack the cookie to reveal your prize!
Spring Fair, 15 Jan – 4 Feb, Indoor Atrium & Outdoor Plaza, Level 1

DIY your CNY trinkets
If you prefer creating your own oriental crafts rather than buying them off the streets, you’re in luck. There’ll be craft workshops open to shoppers who spend $30 in a single same-day receipt. Try your hand at creating your own fortune charms and Chinese mask badges – don’t forget to show them off to your relatives when they visit! Display them in your home and they can serve as conversation topics too.
