Vivocity

I'm at Vivocity and it's packed like crazy! As if half the nation is here.

More later.

Back at home now with a few photos to share.

And California Fitness had the audacity to stage a live workout session along a busy corridor! Stupid idiots.

It seems that Vivocity is targeted at the upper and upper-middle classes, judging by the retailers. Lots of brand names and jewellery stores. No McDonald's, no KFC. I suspect that there'll be quite a high turnover of retailers there.

It was opening weekend at Singapore's biggest mall, so naturally, Singaporeans were curious about what was going on there. It took half an hour to get through the jam on Telok Blangah Road between Keppel Road and the Vivocity car park entrance, a journey that usually takes less than five minutes, even with the traffic light junction. There were so many people at the mall, even though half the shops aren't open, that I was reminded of this saying:

"Foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I suppose that since I was there, then that makes me an owner of a little mind too.
