Mac-18 at circa S$250
JW-Red circa S$40

Does it publish a price-list, sell beer, do home delivery? Google doesn't bring up a website. Could be a useful source for others...


No price list, no web page, prices on the shelf. Will attempt to get you your favorite brand of hooch if possible. Nothing special on beer prices, hard liquor prices much better than NTUC, Fair Price.

May not even still be in business since the riots in little Indian, what with the curbs on selling alcohol there. I have no idea.

Who knows... it also sells electronics of all sorts as well as clothing and a variety of knick-knacks. They weren't in direct competition with the liquor store a few doors down who sold nothing but alcohol, and which is also quite cheap, but certainly augmented their income with booze.

PS: The Google street view images are current to 2015.

In addition to ICA's e-Xtend short-term visa, their web site lists a long-term visa. In addition to mention of a sponsor, this is what it takes - nowhere does it say who is eligible to apply or how long is long-term:

Take some time and read who is eligible to apply and who can be a sponsor. Please. And enlighten us.

Unless ICA changed the rules suddenly, only spouse / children / parents can apply for LTVP. That bit of info is somewhere there in the ICA Site.

Did I miss something ?
