IMM Building

IMM Building, a shopping mall in Jurong East, is the mall we often visit frequently. Not only because it's only a mere 15 minutes drive from home, the mall also houses Giant Hypermarket, our favourite supermarket where we usually buy all our groceries and needs. It's not difficult to find halal chicken or beef here, and the price is somewhat cheaper than other supermarkets such as NTUC Fairprice or Shop N Save, especially the vegetables, fruits etc.

Other than Giant, another magnet of this shopping mall is the two children playgrounds. Yes, you didn't read it wrongly, there are two children playground inside this shopping mall. One playground is on level 2, just in front of Best Denki, for more older children, while the other one on level 3, near Kids Mall, is more for younger toddler. Inka and Irza's favourite playground is the one on level 2. However, the playground is uncomfortably packed during weekends, and some older children like to run around the playground dangerously, so be careful if you have a young toddler, ensure that he/she's under your supervision at all times. You might want to consider using the other playground on the 3rd floor, which is more suitable for your toddler. Alternatively, go there during weekdays, when the playgrounds are not as packed as on weekends. Other than the playgrounds, there are quite a lot of kiddie rides scattered around the mall, which might be suitable for younger toddler and infants.

Fast food chains like Burger King, McDonalds and Long John Silvers are on the first floor. It also houses the 3-in-1 KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell restaurant on the same floor, next to our favourite restaurant, Secret Recipe. The third level houses Bagus, a halal food court by Banquet, which is located opposite the Daiso store (see left picture), which sells imported Japan goods at a fixed price of $2 per item. Kopitiam food court is on the second floor, while there are some small snack outlets such as Polar, Old Chang Kee, Andersen's Ice Cream etc on the first floor, next to Burger King. Kids Mall is also there, located on the third floor, also the store is not as big as Kiddy Palace in Jurong Point or Causeway Point.

IMM Building is unique because it houses retail shops, offices and warehouses under one roof. It is located along Toh Guan Road, about 15 minutes walk from Jurong East MRT station. There are free shuttle bus services from Jurong East, Clementi and Boon Lay MRT stations.
