One of the perks of being an influencer/blogger is that I get to know the latest happenings and products during events and product launches.
This time round, I took part in Wisma Atria’s first-ever WAmazing Race, where myself together with my assigned team member pit against other teams to search for five checkpoints and complete the tasks in the shortest possible time to win Wisma Atria shopping vouchers!
Me and my team partner Tony had to report to Joe & the Juice located at Wisma Atria #B1-56 to 59 at 9.30am for registration and briefing on 3 Sept 2016. While we waited for all the bloggers to report for the race, breakfast was served and we had a chance to try delicious sandwiches, juices and coffee from Joe & the Juice.

Each team was issued a card with five shops which we need to locate and complete the task in each shop within the shortest possible time.
Bumped into a lot of blogger friends who took part in the same race.

After that, we had to run to Fitflop located at #01-31/32 to locate a pair of shoes which we did successfully, before we went back to Joe & the Juice located at #B1-56 to 59 where we had to down one cup of smoothie.
We could share the cup of smoothie between two persons but I thought it might be a waste of time to pass the smoothie to my team member hence I decided to drink it up on my own as fast as I could… hahaha!
All of us had loads of fun that day with the WAmazing Race, returning home with wonderful memories and a once in a lifetime experience running inside Wisma Atria. 🙂

To know about the latest happenings in Wisma Atria, continue to read my blog post before for more updates.
“With the renewed retail offerings, which include several first-in-Singapore concepts, we aim to create refreshed dining and shopping experiences for our loyal and new patrons, while strengthening Wisma Atria as one of the best lifestyle malls in the heart of town,” said a Wisma Atria spokesperson.
Wisma Atria whets your appetite with six new dining options
Opening in the last quarter of 2016, one of the most exciting developments in the F&B scene, is Picnic, a 10,000 sq-ft next-generation communal dining restaurant, located at Level 3. Designed to recreate the energy and vitality of outdoor dining in a dynamic ever-changing urban park within the mall, diners are promised a fully immersive dining experience. Picnic provides a range of international cuisines, including American, French, Italian and Japanese. In addition, it will also feature an in-house third-wave coffee bar and cocktail bar. Picnic is the latest brainchild of owner, Cheng Hsin Yao, creator of the critically- acclaimed Omakase Burger brand, which is located on Level 1 of the mall.
Joe & the Juice makes its debut in Orchard Road at Wisma Atria this month. Serving an array of organic coffee, freshly made fruit and vegetable juices and rye bread sandwiches, this contemporary Danish cafe offers a funky and healthy-packed experience to shoppers grabbing a breakfast bite or a lunch-to-go.
Fans of the popular bubble tea brand, Gong Cha, may now set their sights on its newest outlet at Wisma Atria, opening in September at Basement 1. It will join the ranks of other food cluster favourites, such as Llao Llao, Ben’s Cookies, Garrett popcorn and Famous Amos.
There are more reasons for dessert lovers to celebrate this December, as Fruce, a coconut-based dessert-in-a drink shop, and Eyescream and Friends, a new-to-market Spanish ice cream brand, open at Basement 1. Fruce, which is created from the combination of the words ‘Fruits’ and ‘Fusion’, amalgamates tropical fruits with coconut as the key ingredient, favourite local desserts and homemade toppings, to create their signature series of beverages.
As the name suggests, Eyescream and Friends will offer a visually appealing ice-cream eating experience. The ice-cream, which comes in a variety of flavours, including vanilla, chocolate, cheesecake, yoghurt, mango and strawberry, is created in cylindrical solid blocks that are frozen at -25 degree Celsius. The blocks are trimmed using a specific Asian style of shaving the ice-cream, in order to obtain layers of “shaved gelato”. As a final touch, two googly sugar candy eyes are placed on top of the “eyescream”.
Wisma Atria offers more lifestyle options with four new tenants
UK shoe brand, FitFlop, has opened their new store at Level 1 to offer exciting ergonomic sandals, shoes and boots using world-class design, a splash of fashion and a continuous innovating mix of beauty, brains and top-notch biomechanics. Now shoppers have one more worthwhile destination to satisfy their penchant for footwear!
Ladies searching for trendy gym apparel can pop by Vivre Activewear when it opens its third store in September at Basement 1. Vivre’s creations are specially designed for the Asian body frame and uses moisture-wicking fabrics to keep you fresh while working out. Its chic and high performance designs have also won awards.
For a touch of beauty indulgence, ladies can spend some me-time or BFF-time at Qoosh Nail Spa, a new manicure and pedicure service, which has opened for business at Level 3.
A beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers can brighten up anyone’s day or a special occasion, such as a birthday or an anniversary. For the first time, Wisma Atria is delighted to welcome a home-grown floral shop, Xpressflower.com, into the mall at Level 1.
In addition to these new stores, Wisma Atria is also a mecca for international brands, comprising luxury timepiece brands, such as Rolex, Franck Muller, Breguet, Blancpain, Glashuette and TAG Heuer, as well as well-loved fashion brands, such as Coach, Tory Burch, Lacoste, and many more.
Visitors from overseas can present their passports at the Concierge Counter on Level 1 and receive a $10 F&B voucher when they spend a minimum of $50 nett in a single receipt. In addition, they are also entitled to redeem a 3-day Tourist Privilege Card that entitles them to discounts and special offers at participating stores in Wisma Atria.
