Jem mall delays opening, S’poreans turn to religion

Posted on 12 June 2013

Secular activities such as eating and shopping unavailable, resulting in spike in religiosity.


Singaporeans in the western part of the island are turning to religion.

This after the much-publicised opening of Jem mall in Jurong East did not come to pass yesterday. And today, the mall remains shut.

This lack of secular activities, such as eating and shopping, to satiate the lost and the restless has caused Singaporeans to deviate to other outlets to feel fulfillment.

One of which is religion.

One Singaporean Juronger, Yeshu Aini, said: “Jem mall was closed so I went to this religious place in Jurong West for the first time last evening.”

“There was a lot of singing, clapping, loud music, dancing, merchandise, air con, crowds, materialism and socialising. It was not Jem, but it sure felt like it.”
