    Hahaa... Not too bad, just that its quite outta the way and taking buses are a hassle. like 10mins walk to the busstop!!! Therefore, always gotta wait for parent's car!

    since everyone's from this area, then let me introduce u guys to a nice cantonese restaurant.

    Hong Kong Street Restaurant, opp. Upper Serangoon Shopping Center, along the little stretch of food stalls and across the road from Paya Lebar Methodist Church.

    super food at super prices! the prawn-paste chicken... KILLER!!!!

    hehehe

    try it!


    i always visit this nice little pub next to the Crocodile Farm. it's called Grapevine.
    good western food, nice pricing... and generally good ambience. got a pool table too! i'm always there, maybe every fortnightly... catch the 'Live' telecast of EPL and having a go at KILKENNY.... shiok!!!

    kovan mrt is named so because they didn't have a name for the station in between hougang and serangoon. and so they just borrowed the name from that particular road for the station. or at least I think.

    Kovan MRT? hahaha
    Maybe you and I eat from the same roti prata store. Wonder if it's family-owned, as I sometimes see one old-looking lady helping out there.

    I find the food so-so only and the prices are abit steep. For eg. a cup of kopi-O, using same type of cup as those in the coffeeshop, cost almost $3! Around $2 would be more reasonable.

    hiya... its well priced. a fish'n'chip is around S$8/.
    no 10-5-1 charges!
    terms cash, i believe...

    my fave Kilkenny(not from tap)costs S$10/. good. and enjoy laughing at Rio Ferdinand making nice errors from the big screen!

    do u happen to mean the new swanking Macau styled restaurant in Heartless Mall where the old B.K is at?


    B.K sucks. Carl's Jr. Rocks!

    anyone love LAKSA like i do?!?!

    there's a fantastic noodle shop in Heartless Mall hawker center, i think it is Teochew Fishball Noodle, just right next to a beancurd shop. the LAKSA is fantastic!

    the noodle shop next to this Teochew Fishball shop, the uncle whom i call Elvis, Ruifa Cooked Food(or Ruifa noodle shop)... wa seh! u'll never eat such nice and exotic and special noodles anywhere else! S$3/bowl gets me all worked up! SEDAP! the soup is special too!

    The Luoyang Cooked Food which specialises in Roast Duck... wa seh.. another KILLER!

    i love to eat at Heartless Mall hawker center. good food, good pricing... but hard to get a table...

    I don't think he's referring to the hk 24 hr cafe that just opened.

    it's the uh area... opposite the paya lebar methodist church.
