Greenwich V, pronounced as gran-niche V not green-witch V, is a newly built and very recently opened mall near my place and I had the privilege taking part in 'The Greenwich V Experience' in the form of an amazing race as my first visit there last Saturday afternoon. Organised by omy.sg and sponsored by the Far East Organisation and several participating outlets at the mall, there were a grand total of 15 bloggers and 3 teams. We gathered at the Empire State Restaurant as our first stop.
We started off with a most wonderful lunch sponsored by Empire State Restaurant, serving up their signature Empire State Burger to us that was bigger than our faces and consisted of a big thick slice of juicy, beef patty. We loved this burger to bits; everything was right from the cheese, strips of bacon, the hamburger bun and most definitely the patty. We also had spaghetti and pizza; what a full-filling first stop!
This amazing race, for safety purposes, wasn't about speed and time but we had a time limit to guess 10 clues which will bring us to our next stop/shop and we would have to complete a task there. At the end of the race, we were to upload a photo from each shop that best represents the shop and come up with a well thought caption with it.
Let's not bore each other with the details but rather let the photos do their 'a picture a thousand words' role, shall we?

Well, there you have it! 11 shops, 11 photos, 11 captions, 3 teams of winners. Yes we won 1st place but all 3 teams were winners! We enjoyed the good food, learned about products and services and all 3 teams walked away with goodie bags, and vouchers to spend at Greenwich V because of the generosity of Far East Organisation.(:
'The Greenwich V Experience' was a one of a kind experience where I indeed had fun getting to know other bloggers, learn more about this new mall near me that I'll be visiting in the coming days again and everyone walked away a winner at the end of the day.
Thank you omy.sg for this fun and fulfilling day at Greenwich V, Far East Organisation, the various participating outlets for their time and our gamemaster Alvin for being a nice and friendly guy, coordinating this event!
