    Default Going Funan & Adelphi today? Take a look at this.

    happy saturday...

    If you are going to town today to do some camera shopping ... take a look at what the space of Adelphi (on left) and Funan (on right) would have looked like in 1880.

    (FYI, Adelphi is named after the old Adelphi hotel which was demolished in the 1970s. It was a like the Raffles.)

    My grandparents house used to be at those shop house at bencoolen street. Too bad I don't have a good film camera back then. But I still manage to manage to capture some photos/videos on it. Old memories never return again.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    There is a chance Funan Centre will go the way of Adelphi Hotel.

    probably related to CMT upcoming purchase of bedok mall, need to raise funds from some where apart from debt since REITS cannot borrow at a higher leverage ratio unlike the past, even if they have good credit ratings.
    anyway IT funan has been an under-performing asset on CMT portfolio.
