Want to make your experience at the mall even more fulfilling? In celebration of Father’s Day this month, the Lien Foundation has launched a social media contest — titled Mentalking — that encourages Singaporeans to interview their fathers or father figures on camera and share it on social media as part of a collective effort to discover the seldom-heard wisdom of senior men, honour their lives, and stand a chance to win prizes worth $3,000.

Winners can earn dining vouchers for high tea at Carousel at Royal Plaza on Scotts, as well as $500 worth of Great Rewards mall vouchers that can be used at Great World, Tanglin Mall, Seletar Mall, and of course, the brand new Pasir Ris Mall.
