If you’ve been on the downside lately, get ready to flip that frown upside down by heading over to the Samsung FlipSide Market Experience! The pop-up is a lifestyle market that showcases mobile experiences unique to Samsung Galaxy, where you can step into a whole new world (a cute little shophouse in the heart of Kampong Gelam, actually) with Samsung’s new era of innovation.
Explore the company’s latest additions — from the Samsung Galaxy Flip5 and Z Fold5 to the Galaxy Watch6 series and Galaxy Tab S9 series. Notably, The FlipSide Market will feature the Galaxy Z Flip5 and Z Fold5 for visitors to try out.
But that’s not all; try out all the various Interactive Cards which use NFC technology. The cards come with themes such as Pringles, Squid Game, BTS (for all the ARMYs out there, of course), and more. The numerous designs and collaborations will surely have you spoilt for choice!
Simply place any Interactive Card of your choice on the back of the Galaxy Z Flip5, and voila, it automatically syncs with the front cover screen of the phone. Not only does it change the design of your phone case, but the front cover screen too! I know, cool, right? So, if you are indecisive like me, the Interactive Cards can simply switch to the theme of your choice whenever you please.
If you’re in desperate need of some more Insta-worthy pics, head down to the Market to solve that very problem. With numerous whimsical and colourful mirrors of different shapes and sizes around the venue, you will surely capture some eye-catching mirror selfies for the gram! Thanks to the mirrors, I know I got my much-needed OOTD photos!
Other photo opportunities are available, too. An event is always better when there’s a photo booth to capture the memories. And the best part is that it’s free! A free photo booth; sign me up, please!
But that’s not all; you can also capture memories in the form of a Polaroid. Pose for the camera using the Polaroid camera available and paste them onto a wall filled with Polaroids of other visitors. Don’t worry; you can also bring your Polaroid home with you for a keepsake!
So, if you’re looking for a place to capture some good ol’ photos, the FlipSide Market is the place to go with three different photo types for you to choose from — mirror selfies, photo booth and Polaroid!
But the experience is much more than just browsing through cool phones and capturing photos. Enjoy the FunSide by completing all six stations at the pop-up, which consists of games, mini-missions and more!
Stand a chance to redeem limited-edition merchandise such as tumblers, graphic T-shirts, tote bags and more! Simply present your FlipSide Market digital stamp card at the redemption booth and play a quick lucky draw game to find out which merchandise you’ll receive. I personally won a cute little tote bag and an umbrella, which saved me from the pouring rain. Safe to say, that the merchandise is not a want but a need indeed!
In light of the FlipSide Market, don’t forget to keep a lookout for exclusive Samsung deals around Kampong Glam with participating stores such as Arabica, An Acai Affair and more!
So, cross over to the FlipSide Market Experience (or maybe just the road to get to the venue) at Arab Street ASAP to explore the FunSide of Galaxy and for a flipping fun time! Hurry, as the limited-edition merchandise is only available while stocks last.
