  3. Hi Shenny, I am dying to visit the new Metro at Centrepoint as I have not stepped foot into Centrepoint in ages!!!!! I am also excited that it's now carrying my favourite brands such as SK-II and Kiehls. It's practically a one-stop location for all your shopping to be done. There's no longer a need for us busy ladies to browse from one shop to another where we can get all our shopping done at just one location. This is extremely helpful especially when we are in a hurry. Anyway thanks for holding the giveaway and I really hope that I am able to win this!!!! :)

  5. Hello!!

    I would loveee to visit Metro Centrepoint because my mum loves Metro and I hope i can bring her along for a shopping day. The new Metro looks soooo different and so much more beautiful than others! However, the variety of shops are also as good as other metro! I absolutely loveee the hair salon in the departmental store. It is so insta-worthy that you can't believe that it's in Metro and would probably think it's at scape or something. I love the shot of your skirt and the flowers in the flower booth at level 2! All the decorations look so amazing and enticing! Ever since young, I always have the impression that Metro is for adults but after reading your blogpost, I am convinced that Metro is targetting the younger crowds like teenagers like us. I hope I can win the gift card so that I can have a fun-filled day with my mum at Metro, where there are things for people of all ages!! :-) Thank u!

  7. Hi, my family and I have been enjoying shopping at Metro Centrepoint but regret that I have no
    chance to try out the barbering service at Sultans of Shave. I must say the environment is very enticing.
    I hope I am the lucky winner to give myself a reason to try out their services.

  10. Hello Shenny,

    I would like to win this giveaway to counter-suprise my boyfriend with some shopping! I know he has been making a lot of effort to plan my 21st birthday so I would like to use this voucher to pamper him with retail therapy from Metro! He seldom buy clothes for himself so this would be a great opportunity to show him the variety of threads available at Metro. Heh:P

    With thanks and love,

  11. Wooo... Hihi Shenny! Thanks for the great review and here are my thoughts hehe....

    I feel that this time Metro really did a good job in terms of promotion direction and effort. This is reflected through its creative advertorial(media coverage), welcoming opening ceremony for bloggers akin, and of course beautiful decorations to attract the Xmas and New year crowd. It is not the conventional departmental store that they previously held, they are vying for it and want to be the choice departmental store, one which offers so much more consumer value, variety, surprises, hope and happiness. I'm not denying there is a hype brewing soon. This new metro has definitely caught my attention and will be on my list for new year shopping, will be awaiting the 360 degree shopping experience with credits from yourself and nuffnang. Thank you for reading and enjoy your this festive season okay! Take care and have fun! =P

  13. I would love to visit the new Metro centrepoint because your blog has changed my perception towards metro being a old fashioned mall that only caters to the elderly.
    Now that I know it sells a wide variety of different products, I would like to shop there and buy some items for my family.
