Pearl Point Shopping Mall

As mentioned before, I used to frequent Pearl Point Shopping Mall for 9 months from October 1997 - June 1998. It is adjoined to Pearl International Hotel and Pearl Point Condominium.

I finally landed my foot here once again after 13 years and I hardly recognized the place I once knew. Its main tenant has changed over the year, from Hiong Kong to the present Econsave.

The main entrance is the same as it is used to be but is now flanked with eateries outlets, Domino's Pizza and an Indian mamak restaurant.

The passage way at the ground floor appears to be narrower than what it used to be due to the new Econsave supermarket which occupy most of the space here. There used to be a KFC outlet on this floor but it has long moved out. However, Starbucks and Subway can be located here.

The interior of the mall was totally revamped and I can see the stark contrast compare to my years back here. However, traffic is kind of slow here, even on the weekend.

Moving down to the lower ground floor which also house the car park. There are several stalls selling cloth, bags and Chinese antiques.

The most spacious area of the mall is located on the 1st floor. This floor used to be occupied by Hiong Kong supermarket. Hand phones, computer accessories and Popular book store are located here.

Interestingly, there is a shop which sold specifically condoms and funky sex accessories.

I am unable to make sense out of it but I was wondering why the management still left the Chinese New Year decorations here even though the celebration has elapsed some 3-4 months ago.

The first floor also connected to Pearl International Hotel where one can have full view of their coffee house and main concourse area.

The second floor houses the food court where I usually came here to have my dinner. It is now a pale shadow from its glorious year. Back then the food court was a busy place and offered a variety of food.
