Mal, that's a name I've not heard mentioned in quite a while. I used to live just opposite there up on the hillside in Watten Estates when I first came to Sg back in '82. Stayed there almost a year and then moved to Seletar Camp where I spent the next 15 years till I bought my flat. Back when I lived across from Coronation Plaza it wasn't unusual for Dunhearn Rd to flood before they widened the canal. Haven't been to the plaza for donkey's years. The front left corner of the Plaza used to be a drive through Petro Kiosk. For years after it closed it reeked of petro fumes. The rest aside from the NTUC used to be photocopy shops who would copy entire books as long as you paid for it. Plagerizing was the name of the game back then. What's in there now? Aside from the mentioned restaurant.
Tuition centers mostly. There are a couple of eateries, and a fairprice, but other than that it’s turned into somewhat of a tuition hub. There’s a fantastic impossible burger truck outside called Goodburger, the ambience is great. Delicious burgers and a roadside stall atmosphere.

SMS, don't forget that arcade shop in Coronation back then. Dropped a freaking fortune worth of 20 cent coins in that uncle's machines.

Those xerox shops were another one of my favorites. They saved me a bundle on all kinds of compulsory school reading shizzle. Plus also, you could get a pretty decent high from the ink vapor clouds hanging around there.

Apparently there used to be a Holland Circus roundabout at the corner Farrer/Holland with a fountain. I believe they built the flyover in the early to mid-90’s, just before I arrived. The Queensway/Commonwealth underpass was still under construction when I started commuting to the office via that route in 1997.

Watten Estate is a really nice place (very ulu and laid back). I have eaten at the Arcadia Chinese restaurant back there, it’s one of the most homey restaurants in Singapore!
