Welcome the 2 New Born of Malls in Penang! Part 2 : 1st Avenue Mall

After Straits Quay, let us continue with 1st Avenue Mall! Located at the heart of Georgetown, beside Traders Hotel, Komtar and Prangin Mall. You can find many of shops such as Parkson, Giordano, Opera, Coach, Cotton On, Lois Jeans, Starbucks Coffee, DOME and many more shop inside the mall.

The most important is they do have a few attractive shops such as TGV Cinema and Red Box Karaoke at Cloud 8. The Red Box Karaoke here was the biggest outlet among in Malaysia especially they have a biggest party room. Beside this few tenants, they also provided a outdoor space whereby public can have a wide view of Georgetown at their 8th floor. I had taken a few pictures at there during my shooting of the night view.
You can see more pictures which i selected from my shoot at My Flickr!

Most of the people told me that this mall got KL feel, i can agree with that. As when you first time come in to the mall, you will know the style of the mall totally different with most of the mall in Penang.
The most hot topic around 1st Avenue Mall recently was the Red Box Karaoke RM1 Sing K! Everyday in a specific time, you will see a long queue of people lining up in front Red Box. This is because they can sing for 3 hours for just RM1! YES, RM1 ONLY~
You need to cut down the voucher from Guang Ming Yit Poh and present the original copy of the voucher to the counter, make sure you are the first 50 person at each specific time to enjoy the offer. Yesterday, my friend and i had went for the offer. It was so worth as we can sing for 3 hours plus a set lunch!
We are the 7th! We are early...
Two person included tax just RM2.20! WOOT~

Overall the Red Box service are good, place and room are same as Gurney's. Hopefully i'm will still continue collecting the voucher and go for sing K again! :D

Beside Straits Quay and 1st Avenue Mall, more and more of shopping center will be build up in Penang in future, there will be more competative, creative idea, plan and promotion need is the challenge among them. Hopefully they will continue providing Penangnites the best of shopping experience and more famous shops that we still don't have it here will open their outlet here soon!
