Towards the end of 2015 White Sands Shopping Centre in Pasir Ris completed some major renovation works. This meant not only an updated facade but also more space for shops inside the mall too! And it was a about time for an update too because White Sands has always been a great place to visit but after so long, it was nice to see it being updated with the times.

After news of the completed renovations started making the rounds, a lot of people started asking us “So what’s good to makan there?” and we realized that despite staying like 5 minutes away, we hadn’t really visited White Sands for a proper look at what’s available within its new and modern haven.

Well, luckily, there are quite a number of Halal options!!!
