The Greenwich V Experience - Greenwich V Grand Opening & Carnival

Did you see a group of people running around at Greenwich V on 11 February 2012, Saturday afternoon?
It's "The Greenwich V Experience". There were 3 teams, with 5 bloggers in each team, competing in an “amazing race” style challenge. The 3 teams are: 1. Village Team, 2. Lifestyle Team and 3. Urban Team.
I belong to the Lifestyle Team! Our team consist of Andy, Klessis, Phoebe, Sandra and myself.

Greenwich V is a new mall operated by the Far East group. 
:: about the mall :: 
Nestled within the lush leafy surroundings of the established landed residential estate of Seletar Hills, the undulating site has a serene and charming quality that is rare in urban Singapore.
It combines relaxed style, natural chic and a charming village-like ambience with a buzzing and unique outdoor concept to totally transform traditional expectations of lifestyle and shopping.
Designed to be a retail and lifestyle hub with alfresco dining and casual outdoor spaces, you will discover a vibrant blend of F&B concepts, lifestyle stores, retail shops and services, including a supermarket and food court.
Greenwich V is a relaxed and quaint village-like mall offering tantalising F&B choices ranging from Paradise Inn, The Coffee Bean, Cedele, Rakuichi Japanese Restaurant, Toastbox and BBQ Chicken to grocery shopping at Cold Storage supermarket and services including Guardian Pharmacy, 7-Eleven, Video Ezy, medical clinic, children enrichment schools and a pet grooming shop.
