Penang Times Square has opened its door but it’s not officially launch yet and there’s actually nothing in there except a few stalls and 4 restaurants that have already opened for business.
I went there last Thursday and Friday. I went there just for a look on Thursday and Friday was for lunch at our local fastfood franchise, Marrybrown with my friends.
It’s pretty quiet and not many people walking around at there. There’s only a few workers going in and out, it’s not like as if it’s opening soon but working slow. The back entrance was closed so I had to walk to the front entrance.
The carpark is already opened I believe, I am not really sure about this because I don’t drive a car yet. But looking at the carpark counter, I believe it’s opened. First carpark with parking lot counter in Penang, I have already seen this everywhere in Singapore few years but this is the first carpark which implement this system.
It’s not really empty in Times Square. There’s already a few stalls (but not shops) selling little stuff. Felt pity for them because there’s no customer around most of the time. It’s just curious people like me who go in to see what’s in Times Square but do not buy anything.
Check out the cool cow “statue” inside the mall. It’s huge and colourful.
The special of this cow is, it’s a male one because it has a pair of testicles. LOL. I didn’t know about this until my friend told me on my next visit.
There’s one shop opened and that is a famous giftshop in Penang, Niceday. However, it’s the only shop that was opened when I was there. Perhaps more and more shop will pop up as day goes on. Since it’s a new mall, the AC is cold and chilly, it’s good to take a break from the hot weather outside and go in for a break. =)
Rumours said the official opening of Penang Times Square is in June/July. Let’s hope this will be true and I can go shopping at a new place in Penang. Last time, people said it will be opened during Christmas, then Chinese New Year and now is June/July. There’s probably something wrong with something already. It’s not done yet, there’s still buiding and construction to do on the other side of the mall. On top of it is a condominium.
These two statue caught people’s attention. They like taking photo of this. Cute!
