Neat and well arranged grocery stores is always my favourite place to visit - Village Grocer
As a person who usually work from home, grocery shopping has become one of my favourite things to do as I got more time to explore the new stuff and food available on the market. I don't cook much but visiting awesome groceries place like this makes me want to practice more on my cooking skill.



Oh ya, if you are a person who love healthy eating and easily get hungry at night. I recommend you guys to try out Weet-Bix. Part of my quick breakfast and supper menu so I get enough healthy carbs to east body fat loss and cure hunger at the same time. Price ranging from RM12 to RM16 depends on size and flavors. Let me know if you are a fans of Weet-Bix too!

A shopping mall won't be complete without a fitness gym inside. So for you who love staying healthy and eat healthy. Now you have one more place to train and become fitter in time so you can take thousands of selfie right after a workout. Remember to document your fitness journey because that's what motivate you to go strong in this staying healthy journey.

Other than Celebrity Fitness, there is VITO Art of Fitness Concept Store where you can get your fitness equipment so you can gym or exercise at home too. I personally think that dumbbells are the most simple yet helpful tool if you do workout at home.

Toy Claw Vending Machine and public benches sofa in MyTown Shopping Centre

9. Plenty of Seats Around the Mall - Toy Claw Vending Machine

Walking in a huge shopping mall is sometimes exhausting hence there should be public bench or seats for the public to have a rest while the young one enjoying their shopping. Those chairs are men's best friend specially when they ladies want to shop for new shoes or dress haha. MyTOWN Shopping Centre has resting areas with different theme and I kinda like it. 

Toy Claw Vending Machine in MyTown Shopping Centre

There's this area with huge toy claw machine that challenge your clawing skills. There are a few beautiful corners inside the mall too. Check out the photo below:
