Marvel fans now have more reasons to shop at Qoo10, a treasure trove of the franchise’s paraphernalia for the young and the young at heart.
Dispel monsters in the cupboard with 3D night lights – your child need fear no more under the protection of the mighty Thor. They will also sleep safe and snug with the Avengers bedsheet set featuring colourful miniature versions of the superheros.
Adult fans might be interested in Marvel-themed apparel, ranging collegiate jackets that shout too cool for school to t-shirts emblazoned with 2D logos of characters such as Captain America and the Flash.
Or geek out with tech toys fit for an undercover agent, from the nifty Iron Man thumbdrive to the figurine which lights up when it detects noise from its surroundings.
With the Lunar New Year season around the corner, Qoo10 offers an assortment of well-loved seafood, snacks and drinks to usher in the festivities.
Bak Kwa now comes in a variety of flavours and meats – Xi Shi Bak Kwa’s unique offerings include Duck and Chicken Bak Kwa, as well as the traditional Pork Bak Kwa with Red Yeast Rice and Mushroom for added flavour.
Fans of custard buns, be sure to try Cantonese stalwart Mouth Restaurant’s Liu Sha Bao (steamed bun with creamy custard, baked crust and salty egg bits). For an alternative take on the classic bun, T.AKADEMI offers the Hokkaido equivalent, Kofuku Yaki, which will refresh your tastebuds with seasonal flavours such as Hokkaido Milk Custard, Toffee Custard, Banana Caramel and Yubari Melon Custard.
The celebrations aren’t complete without hotpot essentials. For your abalone fix, try Imperial Japanese abalone, fed on natural kelp and seaweed for more than two years before they are harvested. Argentinian Red Shrimps, larger than the usual Tiger Prawn variety, undergo Individual Quick Freezing before they are shipped to retain freshness and texture for a full-bodied flavour.
Last but not the least, catch up with your relatives over crispy Tao Kae Noi seaweed and Pokka flavoured drinks for an abundant Lunar New Year.
