    Arrow Dempsey hill - We call this - paradise found.

    I've never been to this place yet.

    What's so good about this place as I'm seeing that it's being promoted aggressively in the local paper, paradise found or hell in the making ?

    Eh. Far away, makes cabbies happy, hard to find specific places, all expensive. Lots of caucasians picking up or having dinner with local girls.

    Looks like this area is very "atas"(high class).

    never been there but sounds like a interesting place.. any recommendation for a nice but not too expensive place for dinner at Dempsey hill? Say <$50 for 2 people? or there all classy n ex restaurants one?

    Maybe I will just bring my gf there for Ben n Jerrys Ice cream...

    this place pisses me off it was star gazer's great observation site.. and they developed it.. astronomy's dead in sg...

    sbs99: no moreunoccupied buildings already. you need to take a trip down to update yourself.. whole place is being developed into another holland village.

    the whole place's packed with shops but the parking spaces is VERY VERY limited. about 1/2 the lots are being reserved with cones by the valet service. Let the place starve and close down!

    Far away from any affordable transportation. You'd need to take a train to orchard, then switch to a bus, then walk in.

    walk more than 500m otherwise you can settle for the korean bbq, samy's curry and stuff near the outside which have been open for years..

    Or I'll just hop onto the bus right in front of my house, go 3 stops and eat a Casuarina.

    lol.. dempsey hill can't walk in la.. its "atas" for two reasons, pricing wise for dinner i think 1 person 50 might not even be enough.. "cheapest restaurant" there would probably be olio dome.. anyways its definately not a place to bring the gf for a budget date.. i went there with 100bucks i left with only 3.70 and thats only paying for myself (cuz i went with friends) lol thats how bad it is..

    however for cake lovers there's this place called PS cafe which sells really good cheesecakes and others..its a must try.. and nice concept too..looks like a greenhouse from the outside with glass walls and stuff

    overall, if u wanna enjoy the place be prepared to fork out a $100 bill lol..

    sorry about the astronomy though.. would have loved to see it at that state..

    the big field, and the empty houses near it, and the former army camp all occupied now or gone?
