Hurray! It’s December! Are you ready for the festive season? I particularly enjoy visiting shopping malls this time of the year because the Christmas carols, dazzling decorations and year-end sales never fail to put me in a jolly mood! Over the weekend, we visited Velocity@Novena Square and were enthralled by the transformation of its main atrium into The Magical Realm! It comprises of three interactive zones, so expect many photo opportunities and exciting activities for the entire family! Get access to The Magical Realm with a minimum spending of $25.
1. The Enchanted Forest
Be greeted by a Life Size Snow Globe upon entering The Enchanted Forest! Holy smoke, it’s two storeys high! There are Christmas trees, fluffy reindeers and the entire ground is covered in “snow”.
I have a thing for snow globes because I love watching the “snow” fall when the globe is being shaken. When you are inside the gigantic snow globe, you will get to experience “snowfall” too!
Remember to bring along your camera!
2. The Quaint Old English Town
Join in the story-telling session with Santa over the weekends!
The kids were excited about the horse carriage and a photo with it is a must!
3. The Mesmerizing Carnival
I’m pretty sure that The Mesmerizing Carnival zone was Little misschewy’s favourite. She wanted to go on the carousel but there is something bigger and better!
Look at this pretty Fibreglass horse! So Instagram-worthy!
During the weekends in Dec ’17 (till 24 Dec) between 12noon to 6pm, there will be the following fringe activities happening in the interactive zones: Balloon Sculpting, Popcorn & Candy Floss, and Storytelling with Santa.
After exploring the interactive zones, don’t forget to check out the Christmas Market featuring indie designers and charity organizations located from L1 to L3 of the mall, available till 24 Dec 10am to 9pm daily.
