the only decent book stores here are borders and kinokuyiya. both foreign owned. times is not in the same category.

Yeah.... I spent countless hours in that Stamford Road bookstore when I was still a kid. And that was more than 30 years ago.

thats one at City link mall also, but if you are still looking for old building i think second to that of the old building(near old national library) is the outlet at Robison Road quite nice antique feels :)

The one at Raffles City came before City Link Mall, shortly after they moved out of the old MPH Building.

Cheap CDs????? I find their prices same as elsewhere.
IIRC they were quite cheap and had quite a comprehensive collection back then.

Comprehensive, yes (maybe). Cheap, no. I remember the "real" Sembawang Music Store at Sembawang Shopping Centre was much cheaper.

yea, i remember that too! :thumbsup: my childhood hangout in the early 90s (sembawang shopping centre). it was one of the very first big shopping malls in the north area, before Northpoint came along.

the selections at the "real" sembawang music centre was very good too. i 'discovered' a lot of (now my favourite) bands there just by browsing through the titles.

*end of ot :embrass:
