15 bloggers got to experience newly opened mall Greenwich V, by taking part in a race challenge.

They were split into 3 teams and tasked to complete stations at mall tenants, which consist of Food and Beverage, Retail, Health and Wellness and services types.

With about half of the mall providing F&B options, the bloggers had numerous food tasks. Other than that, they also had to search for designated items, or learn about provided services at non-F&B shops.

Before setting off to their race, they were hosted by Empire State with great US food fare. Ranging from giant burgers to succulent pastas to cheesy pizzas, these bloggers never stop snapping pictures and chewing food all the way!

After warming up (their stomach and also getting to know more about one another) at Empire State, they get down to the briefing, all fired up to win the challenge.

The most important task was to take representative pictures at the shops they visited. Each team submitted 11 photos onto Greenwich V’s Facebook page.

They were judged based on the photos and captions they submitted and the Village Team emerged as top winner, walking away with $300 worth of mall vouchers.

Other than feeling surprised for the win, members of the Village Team said that readers can look forward to many unpublished photos they took, on the blog challenge site.

The Lifestyle Team consists of bloggers who are parents, so they brought their families along, naturally forming the largest team with excited children. The kids also became great subjects in the photos they submitted, helping them to come in closely behind the Village Team.

The Urban Team displayed determination in completing their tasks, and continue their tenacity by promising well written entries for the post-race blogging segment.

As part of the blogging contest “The Greenwich V Experience”, participating bloggers will share their experiences in the mall after the race. In mid March, readers can vote for their favourite teams and stand to win mall vouchers.
