    Arrow 2015 Beach Road Army Market close shop

    The Army Market, the go-to place for army supplies, is on the verge of becoming a relic. The lease for shopkeepers operating at the iconic market along Beach Road in Singapore will expire end of 2015.

    Through The Lens features three female shopkeepers who have been hawking their wares there for decades, and are experts on local military apparel and paraphernalia in their own right.

    Hope the shops owner could restart business at an alternate place... but seeing that their business has dropped greatly... don't think they'll survive for long... sad...

    Remembered once when a group of us was chit chatting with one of the aunties.

    Ended with a demonstration of how we use SAF issued condoms out in the field, from being a medical aid, protective covering, water carrier etc. etc.

    Also can pack Composite 4 and detonator (blasting cap) inside as an IED.

    Don't worry yet, there is still 2 more years to enjoy all the food and say bye bye to the Uncles and Aunties upstairs.

    That market has great foods! I was lucky to be working in Keypoint building previously - thus eating there often.

    Will miss the char kway teow, beef hor fun, pork ribs noodle, and fish soup..

    And combine that with the Thai foods @ Golden Mile & Malay food @ Arab Street...
