The Mood Menu! @ IPC Shopping Centre

Weekend Fun @ IPC Shopping Centre with the Family 


Weekends have always been allocated for family activities and outing. As such, last weekend, I decided to bring the family out to IPC Shopping Centre as I heard they just had a redevelopment and it’s pretty awesome now. Entering the centre, it is definitely different from what I was used to, a good change and more natural light. Sunday funday, that’s what I would describe our experience over at IPC Shopping Centre last weekend.

Wondering Where to EAT at IPC Shopping Centre? 


No matter how hungry we are, we always can’t decide what to eat. This was exactly what happened to us during our weekend outing at IPC. A quick check with my wife, she said she heard on radio about an app feature that helps us decide on the million-dollar question. The app is by IPC Shopping Centre and it is said to have a feature in it that will help ease the decision-making on what to eat.

I know there are a lot of restaurants in IPC but since none of us know what to eat, we decided to give the IPC mobile application a try to see how it works. Upon download, it kinda look like a regular shopping mobile application with Store Guide, Map, parking information, latest promotions, and so on. But I was very drawn to their food and mood-matching tool..

The Mood Menu on IPC Shopping Centre Mobile Application 


This food and mood-matching tool is aptly called ’The Mood Menu’. It was specially designed and created in collaboration with a food expert/scientist, along with Spotify. According to the food expert, humans have the tendency to eat certain things because of how they feel. IPC took this study and correlated it with Emotion + Food + Music, because we normally eat or listen to songs based on feelings.

Guess where did it suggest we have our lunch?

‘The Mood Menu’


I was listening to some rather pumped up music during the morning itself, and it reflected in what the app suggested! How interesting!  Apparently being pumped up means eating a mix of sour and sweet flavours.

Some of the recommendations were Uncle Lim’s, Laksamana and Absolute Thai. We opted to just go to the first one on the list. To Uncle Lim Cafe we go! Food is good, everything is so convenient with technology yes?

So here's how it works!



Voila, recommendations based on the Mood Menu, and I'm literally all PUMPED UP!

Honestly, I like to see and use new things and this is a really creative invention. While the mobile application may seem to be like any other shopping centre mobile application, with The Mood Menu feature, I think there is plenty of room to grow.

Imagine if we can collect points with the mobile application? Or sync to more than one Spotify playlist? That way I can know what my wife is feeling. Haha!

Fun Times for the Kids and Family!


The kids were excited that day, as there were a whole lot of things to see and play over at IPC Shopping Centre. In fact the IPC Mobile application was really intuitive, giving us a list in one of their features, of family friendly facilities and more! The parking information feature in the mobile application helped me as well, as I wanted to gauge how much I need to pay for a full day at IPC.

Good times, you must take time off one of these days to come to the newly revamped IPC Shopping Centre. There’s just so much to see, and eat, literally food everywhere! Oh, do remember to download the IPC Mobile Application as it will come in handy and be very useful. 

The IPC mobile application is now available for download via Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
