    That's not John 3:16. They were on the side. My uncle had a Singapore Pools & Toto store on 2nd floor, directly about them.

    If you're referring to the one on the top floor, I don't believe the name is Corona, but I can remember that they served lemon chicken rice with a fantastic chillie sauce that had some bite. It was my favorite stall.

    Try the Telok Ayer/Amoy Street Food Centre, someone told me that they had moved there.

    Its the same Funan building, but it went through a few major renovations in the last 20 years.

    Not sure if anyone was formerly on BBS (before Internet started). I'll mention a few things and see if anyone can recall.

    1. FidoNet
    2. BRE (online game)
    3. Operations Overkill (online game)
    4. RA (Remote Access BBS Software)
    5. Frontdoor (Mail Exchange BBS Software)
    6. Commo (client software to connect to BBS)
    7. 2,400, 9,600, 14.4k modems (anyone use this before??)

    Micro Village in Funan brings in the USRobotics modems. Prior to that, most of the modemers (BBS Users) bring in directly from US or through some kind of mass order.

    I think the BBS scene went dead in 1995 when SingNet appeared. So, those born after 1980 may not know what is BBS. It's the father / grandfather of Online community / communications!!!
