IOI City Mall , Putrajaya



 After playing water, we went to the newly opened and much talked about IOI City Mall in Putrajaya. 


Surprisingly, most of the shops here have been occupied and opened for business. There are a lot of makan place here.The mall was spacious too.


 Was anxious to go into the mall but Mamarazzi kept delaying me by wanting to snap photo.

Heard there is a Ice Skating Area and Theme park. Arrived there the Ice Skating was not available yet. They were cleaning the place lor. Saw the Theme Park. Tarak go in coz Mamarazzi said no money .

 First stop....Food junction. Not really hungry yet but thirsty. Sat down for Ice Kacang. Lovely view of outside of the Mall from the Food Court. Tarak snap pic coz battery low liao.

Walk around some more. Got branded shop and those which is not so branded too.


 Tired of walking, .....wish they put more benches along the way for us to sit and rest. 

Lunch time hungry liao....Mamarazzi just eeny mini minie moe.....tembak one restaurant to have lunch.......

 End up at Tenka coz Mamarazzi saw their banner of this bowl of noodle

Ordered that. Taste okay la. But the meat slices had a tad too much fat on it. 

 I had the Soft Shell Crab Noodle which I shared with Papa. I eat the noodle while papa ate the ingredients.


 
Don't know why but small bowl of noodle only but so filling leh. Mamarazzi also cannot finish her bowl of noodle.



Mamarazzi's comment on the mall. Nice and comfortable place to do shopping and to walk around but the parking need much improvement.

We parked at LG(a) level. When we wanna go back to the same level, Mamarazzi got "lost". Label at the lift doesn't have LG(a) level. Got Parking 1 Parking 2 listed in the board ...the button pulak G, LG, M, B1, B2...so which one leh? Not only we got lost. Saw a few others got lost too.


Secondly, the parking card. When we wanna pay, it state "Card Faulty". Saw a staff pass by and Papa asked the staff. She said have to go to their office which is quite faraway from the machine. Lucky a police officer was nearby and he offered to lead us to the office.

Sampai there......long queue. Many of which are people working there coming to submit forms for season parking. Only one staff was there. Pity the staff. He looked  so harassed. Had to queue at least half an hour before it comes to our turn.

Finally got a new card from the Staff. Walked all the way back to where we came from. Went and pay parking. There was two man in front of Mamarazzi trying to make payment. Same thing..."Card Faulty" was flashing on the screen. Adoi. Mamarazzi advised them to go to the office and we managed to pay our parking in the end.

Overall verdict? Lovely place to walk around. Hope the Management would look into the parking matter. Maybe put a few cash payment counter at the exit instead of depend solely one machine.

  1. They sure need to fix that parking system! Too bad the ice skating was closed! Will you come back when it is open? I would love to see you skating. I love to shop, too. I think they had such a few benches because they want people shopping, not sitting!

  5. They stop you at the autopay still ok lah, what's worse is at Gurney Plaza in Penang, the card is good enough to go through autopay, can pay... but not good enough for the exit gates, card faulty there, then will all the cars queuing behind you.. I dunno why they set different systems for payment and exit..

  22. Oh, lucky I read this and know that they charge for parking now. I went in Dec, parking still free then. Yes, I agree with SK, the noodle looks like ramen and the char siew is like that fatty normally. I think the oil makes Mamarazzi gets full quicker.
