Google searches for self-care have increased significantly since the start of the pandemic, and for good reason. One of the easiest ways is to indulge in a bit of retail therapy, and we’ve got a suggestion. If you find yourself in the Kallang area, Kallang Wave Mall is a great option for a fun day out with the family now that Covid restrictions have eased. Those looking to refuel after a gruelling workout will enjoy the numerous dining options here. There’s a lot to be explored if you can’t already tell from the giant rock climbing wall that greets you as you step in. We take you through three of the mall’s new tenants.

W Optics

Thinking of getting a new pair of glasses? Set your sights on W Optics, a homegrown vision care centre that provides eye care solutions, optical products like prescriptive and contact lenses and eye examinations. It’s a good idea to get an eye exam every once in a while, since we’re constantly surrounded by screens, and it helps to keep an eye out for any eye diseases. They also specialize in Myopia management in children, and carry a variety of children’s eyewear. W Optics isn’t your average optometrist. This outlet is actually the first W Optics store to have a treadmill and spin bike for customers to make sure their eyewear stays on after adjustments are done in store.

Take S$56 off your bill at W Optics with any purchase of Shamir customiszed Single-Vision or Progressive optical lenses. This promotion is exclusively available at W Optics, which is on now until Sept. 31.


Sparkle is your one-stop shop for all your gadget needs. It’s great for when you need to pick up a USB cable for your iPhone, or a handy portable fan. If you’re bent on upping your TikTok game, they’ve got a whole bunch of selfie ring lights to choose from. It’s not just millennials and Gen Z-ers that get all the fun though, as the little ones will also enjoy browsing through the wide selection of toys, games and art supplies as well. They’ve also got small accessories like name card holders, lanyards, keychains and soft toys, and we won’t blame you if you find yourself needing more than an hour to browse through all of it. 

Han Taekwondo

Besides the plethora of options for retail therapy at Kallang Wave Mall, you can also try Taekwondo here thanks to Han Taekwondo. They offer Taekwondo training to individuals of all ages, genders and skill levels — and your training will be facilitated by a passionate and skilled instructor from Korea. It’s a fun way to enrich your mental and physical well-being, whether you’re looking to train for a competition, learn self defense or simply stay fit. They’re doing free trial classes for toddlers, kids, teens and adults, and if you sign up now, you’ll get a free uniform and enjoy a waiver of the registration fees (worth more than S$150). Sounds like a good deal, doesn’t it?
