Singpost Centre mall to be managed by Capitaland

The mall in the new SingPost Centre – near Paya Lebar MRT station – spans five floors and has a net lettable area of about 175,000 sq ft. The SingPost Centre will house the new General Post Office and Philatelic Store and feature tenants, including supermart NTUC FairPrice, Golden Village cinemas and a Kopitiam foodcourt. SingPost said the 300 sq m General Post Office will feature traditional counter service and technology-enabled innovations such as POPStations and eSAM machines. There will also be a heritage corner where customers can learn about the postal service firm’s 150 years of history.

CapitaLand Mall Asia is the mall manager, signing its first third-party mall management contract in Singapore, boosting CapitaLand’s mall network here to 20. The long-term contract with Singapore Post will see CapitaLand managing the upcoming mall at the new SingPost Centre in Paya Lebar – slated to open in the second half of this year.

The SingPost Centre mall will augment its presence in eastern Singapore, where it currently owns and manages two malls – Tampines Mall and Bedok Mall.  It is also involved in a joint venture to develop the Jewel Changi Airport which is due to be ready in early 2019.

With CapitaLand as the retail mall manager, SingPost will be able to focus its attention on our core operations of postal services and e-commerce logistics. Under the property management agreement, CapitaLand will oversee the period leading up to the opening of the mall, its marketing and promotion as well as leasing and facilities management.

Declutter your home

In Singapore, where everybody is so busy with work and many obligations, it is hard not to imagine a cluttered home for some. To declutter, it seems so formidable a task to most that usually it don’t get done well. Here are some tips where you can start the declutter process in a more rewarding fashion
1. Divide and conquer. Instead of doing too much at one go, you can start with a particular area first, like a room. This is a more efficient way and instant results are assured usually. However it does not help if you only transfer one clutter to another room.
Also keep your tasks small, like 20 mins to clear the drawers in your bedroom, instead of doing the whole bedroom.
2. Schedule sessions. Commit to a timeline to declutter your room. A deadline helps to give focus.
3. Categorise your storage. Work out a systematic way of storing your stuff in logical places. For example keep all stationery in your study room.
4. List down contents of storage boxes. Choose clear containers and folders will help you to visualize te contents. A list of contents can be pasted on the side of the containers.
5. Sorting out clutter to keep or discard. A system of ‘donate, ‘throw’, ‘recycle’, and ‘store’ will help you to decide how to deal with the existing clutter.
6. Space saving furniture. If space is a limitation, choose sofa-beds and other multifunctional furniture to liberate space.
7. Change your mindset. Break old habits that lead to clutter problem like over buying of things and keeping of old unused stuff. Keep documents and stuff in the right places and you have a clutter free life.
