    Talking Anyone Remember The Old Funan Centre?

    Anyone remember the old Funan Centre about 20 years ago? I remember there was a camera shop on the ground floor, back then I was a poor student, always look at the cameras on display but no money to buy...

    Just out of curiosity, anyone remember the name of this shop? Is it still around some where?

    Heh. I remember the old Funan Centre. With dim corners, open-air food centre above, and later Big Rooster (remember that?!) on the ground floor. I found visiting such old shopping centres to be quite an adventure compared to the spanking new ones.

    20 years ago, when u buy a SLR, it would come with a custom-fit leather case, just exactly the same shape as a camera with a lens...

    I remember across the road Hill Street hawker centre ground level, there was a pig intestine soup stall, very nice and tasty soup. Anyone knows if it is still somewhere out there?
