"Rakuten Super Bag" Extravaganza 28th - 30th March 2014

[Media Invite]

What's buzzling at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza is non other than Japan's top online shopping mall - Rakuten ! I remembered back then spotting some really cute bento making accessories on Rakuten Japan's website but didn't managed to order as it was all in Japanese and isn't great news (for me definitely) for all online shopaholics that now it's making it's presence in Singapore ! Jump for joy !

Rakuten Singapore Marketplace currently features over 100,000 goods from 150 merchants with a diverse mix  of product categories ranging from fashion apparel and accessories, food and beverages, health and beauty products, consumer electronics, babies and kids' products, toys and games, living ware and home furniture. More to come as it aims to acquire 300 merchants by the end of this year !

How cool ! That was my lucky draw tag ! Just scan !

Launching the celebration was Kiran Kumar, Director, Infocomms and Media, Singapore Economic Development Board, together with Shin Hasegawa, Global Vice Chief Marketing Officer, Rakuten and Shingo Okatomo, Head of Singapore e-Commerce Business, Rakuten.

The pretty ladies all in a row, from the left: Fashion Buyer, Interpretor and the two models wearing Rakuten Direct apparel and the beautiful host on the extreme right ! I love her outfit as well !

Our next stop - Food ! Xav's eyes lit up ! But he did ask mummy for permission before he tried these snacks.

This is really yummy ! Happily took over the whole pack from Aunty Jenn !

This is something you would definately not want to miss when you visit Hokkaido. I remembered lugging a few boxes back !
