Waterway Point opening: Residents look forward to BreadTalk, teething problems & changing name to 1 Punggol Mall

Posted on 24 December 2015

They can’t wait to call it 1 Punggol Mall any time soon.


Punggol residents from all walks of life, who are used to quietude and ulu living the last five years, are ecstatic that a new shopping mall, Waterway Point in Punggol, is finally opening on Jan. 18, 2016.

This after the announcement was made on the mall’s Facebook page.

One Punggol resident, Zao Huo, said he is looking forward to the mall having teething problems: “I’m sure it will be like JEM mall in Jurong East, where walls would fall off, the place will flood and stuff will spontaneously catch fire.”

“It will add a bit of drama to our lives here having seen nothing much the last several years living here.”

Other Punggol residents said the Waterway Point will mark a turning point in their lives as they are now within a few minutes away from the nearest BreadTalk and Uniqlo outlet.

Another resident, See Baey Xian, said: “I used to have to travel at least 10 minutes to get to Seletar Mall to find all these novel shops, such as BreadTalk and Toast Box.”

“Now all I have to do is travel about six minutes to get to them. I can sense my life becoming more colourful and fun-filled already.”

“And I’m getting these strange exciting feelings. Oh, what was that? Just some buttocks-clenching excitement.”

However, not all Punggol residents are satisfied with the new Waterway Point name.

Another local, See Baey Luan, said: “Calling it Waterway Point is very confusing. More needs to be done to rename the mall into something more intelligible and imaginative.”

“It should be called 1 Punggol Mall, which is unique and never done before.”

At press time, Punggol residents are petitioning for Charles & Keith to open an outlet there too.
