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
Still circulating around, I left my favourite brand to the last
Looking so wholesome
Ready to receive anyone in need of makeovers!
& Yes, I spotted a friend there!
I would dream of having my makeup desk designed this way
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
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
There’s seatings now.. we used to be only able to buy takeaways!
Generously treated to a great selection of Nonya kueh kuehs
This is, undoubtedly the most popular amongst all the guest
You will understand how crazy the queue was by looking at this…
Ms PT gave her thumbs up for it!
Durian and Jackfruit fried fritters
Ms AC enjoys her durian a lot~
The decor around the food district is made vibrant and colourful
very much to neon in fact
Pumps up the whole place and improves my appetite!
These baos were bigger than my palms
well known as AMY YIP BIG BAOS
I sat there for a good hour savouring all food from the different stalls.
Holding on to chicken rice in a small cup!
Fancy eating chicken rice this way?
Dessert came in the form of chendol
while my friends are still back at the stalls… =p
We have a visit from friendly Mr Krispy Kreme!
Offering all donuts that you can eat!
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 =)
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~
There’s not too much changes with Level 2 and 3
Just some small layout shiftings
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!
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
Cute little macarons
Mouth-popping size were served around the levelmaking kids squirm!
We finally arrived at our destination
The Belvedere bar~
Clinking away with just a few drinks, I called it a night
A very eventful evening spent with Tangs
Head on down to Tangs now for the brand new experience!
Christmas shopping is the best time!
