JCude which open few months back is the latest shopping mall in the west. Most people will probably heard of it for the ice skating rink inside. OMY was nice enough to invite couple of blogger friends to check out the new mall. But not every inch of it cos that will take days to do a comprehensive walk-through so today will be just be focusing on Casio G-factory and Shaw JCude IMAX.
G-Factory is a chain of Casio watch outlet that specializes in 5 brands of watches, namely
Sheen, for the ladies, with shinny diamonds around the watch.
Edifice, for the guys. wearing one makes you look 10x tougher.
Protrek, for the adventurous people. Comes with lots of handy function for outdoor needs.
And of course, Casio’s trademark G-Shock. Need no explanation on this one. Very hardy piece of equipment. Btw do you know what does the G stands for? Frankly speaking I have no idea initially but our lady host was nice enough to share with us that it stands for Gravity.
And lastly, the Baby-G, for the young and funky.
And this just in. Popular Korean idol group Girls’ Generation is the new Baby-G ambassador.
