We the bloggers were given vouchers to get outfits to wear on that day. I might not be floral/girlie/vintage loving type but I managed to get a yellow parka (at $40) and a grey-navy blue striped sweater ($11) for that day.
Local celebs who attended, and stayed at the blogger station for a while, Jade Seah and Mindee Ong.
Before the ribbon cutting ceremony (with F21 co-Founder Mr Don Chang)— more drum beating.
Here came the lion dance troupe. It’s a very asian thing to do, a practice that brings in prosperity.
Last picture I took before leaving the store. Yes it is that crowded through out the day. Amazing huh.
