My excuses to visit Adelphi just became less


SINGAPORE: Funan DigitaLife Mall on North Bridge Road - a shopping centre primarily known for shops selling computers and other electronic gadgets - will be closed from the third quarter of 2016, to be redeveloped into a "creative hub".
[/size]The mall will be closed for about three years, said CapitaLand Mall Trust Management in a press release on Thursday (Dec 10).[/color]
[/size]The real estate investment trust had hinted at such a move in July, when it suggested the mall could be sold or redeveloped.[/size]
I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

They should first fix the stinking exhaust from a basement food court of a particular country outside Peninsula Plaza.

Aldephi next?  A lot of buzz to redevelop it to go upmarket.

Strolling there on a saturday afternoon to want waste time before heading to Substation for Gig also feels like a boring place but it's just for the sake of enjoying the air-con there first before sweating all out.

Wow, I thought TK Photo just got their new unit and renovated.
What a waste of money, and where are all those shops going to go?

I think they mentioned not going to more anywhere, so flagship store will close down for good

Yah, according to the news, the shop owners only knew about it from the press release.
Must be a sh!tty feeling for most of them, especially the likes of TK who have only reached this level after so long and have expanded into more shops.

Only anchor tenants will get heads up, the rest I doubt so.
