Soar into spring at these HDB malls with exciting games, engaging performances and lucky draws with attractive prizes to win this Lunar New Year

by Marcus Leong

The Lunar New Year is just around the corner — time to don your lucky colours and huat huat huat!

What better way to ring in the year of the Dragon and soak in the festivities than to head over to your nearby HDB Malls to take part in an exciting lineup of games, lucky draws and activities to score more huats this Lunar New Year 2024!

Blindfolded Lucky Grab

You probably have seen this game appearing all over your TikTok FYP. For those who don’t know which game I’m referring to, it’s the one where people use a spatula to scoop up money while being blindfolded. 

For this Blindfolded Lucky Grab, instead of scooping up actual cash, players will scoop up mock cash from the cash pile. Hidden on some pieces is a little dragon and you get up to five tries to find the dragon and earn one stamp on your game card. Apart from being blindfolded, you also have a 45-second time limit.

Think you can do it? Rise up to the challenge and see if you’re lucky!

Lo Hei Plating


You’ll be given larger-than-life chopsticks and within five minutes, you’ll have to pick up and place the ingredients onto the lo hei printed plate. If you already struggle with regular sized chopsticks, good luck using these ones. 

But, if you successfully manage to match all the ingredients to the right placement on the plate, you’ll earn another stamp on your game card — just a few more stamps and you’ll be able to get your hands on that special mandarin orange pouch.

Both Blindfolded Lucky Grab and Lo Hei Plating are available at the following malls. Check out their Facebook pages for more details.

Mahjong Pong Pong Match


Where are my mahjong kakis at? 

That’s right, a mahjong match could be headed to your nearby neighbourhood mall very soon — well, sort of. The Mahjong Pong Pong match is a little different from your regular mahjong game where you’ll need to flip through the tile to find three sets of matching tiles — kinda like a memory game. 

Put your memory to the test and see if you’ll be able to earn a stamp for your game card! 

Mahjong Pong Pong is available at the following malls. Check out their Facebook pages for more details.

The games are available for participation by redeeming a game card with 300 ShopperLink points. If you don’t have a ShopperLink account, you can sign-up for one and receive a free Mandarin Orange Carrier.

To qualify for the lucky draw, all you gotta do is to spend a minimum of S$38 from participating stores (maximum 3 receipts) or in a single receipt from supermarkets — sounds pretty simple if you ask me.

What’s Lunar New Year 2024 without the quintessential Lion and Dragon dance troupes? I love watching the lion and dragon dance performance, especially when they perform those exhilarating jumps.

Cai Shen Ye (God of Wealth) will also be making his rounds around the malls and you definitely don’t wanna miss him — especially if you want to get your hands on his four digits lucky number cards.

While you’re there, make sure to pick up a pair of free red couplets with traditional well wishes written on it to usher in a blessed new year. 

There’ll also be Fengshui and Geomancy talks by Master Wilfred Leu taking place at selected malls,  if you’re curious to know what your year is gonna look like — will you find love, make more money, be prone to health complications? Make sure to take notes on how you can slay the year of the dragon. 

Social Media Contest

Unleash your inner social media star and stand a chance to win S$50 worth of supermarket vouchers.
