Treats for Mum

Mother’s Day is this Sunday 10 May, and we know it may be a little different this year, but there are still plenty of ways to celebrate.

If you’re a last-minute planner, we’ve got a few special ways to treat Mum this Mother’s Day at Marina Square. Read our list below for ideas and inspiration.

Buy her coffee or breakfast from LAB Kitchen or Leaf Café. Order her favourite brunch dish and coffee. Pick it up in-store or have it delivered! Extra points if you deliver her breakfast in bed and take care of the clean-up too.

Buy her a special gift from Rose Espresso Florist, Priceline Pharmacy or Supercharged News. Whether it’s a bouquet of roses, a new candle or her favourite lipstick, we’ve got you covered. A little token of your appreciation can go a long way!

Buy her lunch or dinner from Hiew Thai, Masuya Suisan, Bulpan Korean BBQ, Bosphorus Turkish Street Food, Pho Joy or Mimo. We have worldwide cuisine to tingle her tastebuds. Order her favourite cuisine and let us take care of dinner.

Cook her something special with Marina Square Seafood, Marina Square Butcher and Zetciti. Our speciality stores have all the ingredients you need to pull off a family style feast.

Prepare afternoon tea with Smelly Cheesecake and Liquorland. Pick up your cakes from Smelly Cheesecake and buy a bottle of Champagne from Liquorland. Make some tea and sandwiches and you’re all set.

Ratty Behaviour

A collective of cheeky rats are about to pop-up at Marina Square. Discover our mischief today!

Scan their QR codes to learn more about Lunar New Year and enter your cheeky photo in our #MSQLNY20 challenge.

Henry the hand standing rat loves to show off his flexibility and adaptability. With an acute awareness and observation of his surroundings, Henry is always ready to adjust to new circumstances.  His positive attitude always shines through. Although, he sometimes finds that the best way to thrive is upside down!

Steven the stilt walking rat is stubborn, yet determined to see the world around him from different heights. Acquiring a set of chopsticks, he quickly adapted them into stilts. With so many incredible things now in his sights, Steven is unable to focus on just one thing!

Julie the juggling rat has an eye for business.  Julie likes to try her hand at many new things, with great enthusiasm and passion, until she finds the next thing that she knows she will excel at. Spotting a hole in the market, she is quickly learning to juggle.

Benny, Becky, and Blair are too excited and happy to ever sit still for very long. Full of vitality and positivity, there isn’t much that they can’t tackle together.  Their sentimental affection for each other means that they are never too old to build rat pyramids together!
