The Relaunch of Tangs Orchard

Tangs has always been an icon of Orchard Road for decades…
It would be difficult for you to miss the fact that the historical departmental store has been sealed off the roads over the last few months for a total visual uplift
They are now ready to receive us again!

The re-opening and re-launch of Tangs Orchard in mid November attracted snaking queues of privileged invited guests and the media.
The store was opened solely for us after 9pm

Also just in time for the festive season, I managed to capture a shot from across the road

Draped in tasteful Christmas lights, the festive season is just getting into you!

Just a note: This post will be filled with photos to showcase the new face of Tangs

There’s a makeshift SKII popup store along the entrance of Tangs
The vending machine with SKII Gift Packs caught my eye!
I wonder if the machine accepts credit cards =p

After clearing the queue,
I made rounds and rounds on Level 1 – BEAUTY HALL in Tangs
Also known as The next best place to Paradise

filled with multi shades
Spoil myself for choices

Little Drummer Boys getting ready to parade Level 1
& I was on my way down to the basement!

Was told that the basement has been given a total facelift!
All I could recall from the previous outlook of Tangs Basement was homeware and small food stalls
Well, the new basement doesn’t differ very far
Just an expanded variety of brands and more food

Including snaking queues of….

How can you not be gobbling those Melt-in-your-mouth donuts!
@ one go, I’ve had a personal record of 12
that was in 2008
=D

IMG_3508

A very much cleaner look now
Well organized & Tasteful

There has been more and more varieties of home appliances and Tangs reacted to the call of space!
Since when did we have so much to choose from?
Our homes used to have similar brands and appliances and we all probably grew up with the same ones!

Moving on to the food as the flavours wafted through the walkways
Simply irresistible~

There’s seatings now.. we used to be only able to buy takeaways!

What’s best after beating the sweet tooth: Local KOPI
It’s one of the better coffee I’ve ever tried
Given that I need 2 to 3 dosages a day
I would know my coffee by now =)

IMG_3546

After pampering our tummies, I thought we should take a walk to the other levels to check out how different they are
& I came across this!
So it means I shouldn’t be done eating yet?
Tangs is serving me food at every level I proceed to?

I’m truly spoilt!!!

Honestly, the focus was at Level 4 where we can grab Belvedere to finish off the night~

IMG_3547

There’s not too much changes with Level 2 and 3
Just some small layout shiftings

Guess What…

CATH KIDSTON is in town!!!!

I no longer have to get them in London!
Easy access with Tangs and armed with my Tangs Citibank card where there is 10% rebate
Shopping is like savings~
ok, that is how I rationalize when it comes to shopping!

IMG_3553

Men’s accessories have been largely emphasized as well
I used to shop for cufflinks as gifts at Tangs years ago for male colleagues
& have always been constrained by only 2 to 3 showcases
Now, it’s an AREA dedicated to it!

The 4th Level is mainly footwear

& Christmas decor

Clinking away with just a few drinks, I called it a night
A very eventful evening spent with Tangs

Christmas shopping is the best time!
