AMK Hub commemorates its 5th anniversary from 31 August to 7 October 2012 with a delightful range of activities and giveaways for shoppers.
The mall will mark the celebrations with an entry into the Singapore Book of Records and will attempt to set a new record for “The Largest Taiyaki Display” on 1 September 2012.
Record-breaking Event (1 September) – For this year’s record-breaking feat, 5,555 pieces of Taiyaki will be used to construct The Largest Taiyaki Display. Taiyaki, a popular Japanese waffle pancake with sweet fillings, aligns well with AMK Hub’s 5th Anniversary, for its representation of wealth, good luck and prosperity. The record-breaking event will be held on 1 September, 12pm at the Basement 1 Exhibition Hall. This exciting event will be graced by Mr Seng Han Thong, Member of Parliament for Ang Mo Kio GRC. The Taiyaki Sale will go towards The Woodbridge Hospital Endowment Fund.
AMK Hub’s 5th Anniversary Celebrations (1 – 9 September) – From 1 to 9 September, kids can have fun baking their own 2-piece Taiyakis at the Taiyaki-making Workshop with a donation of $5. All proceeds from the Taiyaki-making Workshop will go towards The Woodbridge Hospital Endowment Fund. The festivities do not end here! From 1 to 9 September, AMK Hub’s B1 Exhibition Hall will be transformed into a mini carnival area with gaming booths and food kiosks selling all-time favourites such as Taiwan rice cracker, ice-cream, candy floss and more! To sweeten the celebrations, shoppers with a minimum spending of $30 (in a single receipt) can redeem an entry pass to the gaming area where kids can have fun playing exciting games. Shoppers can also choose to donate $5 for an entry pass.
