You mean the enclosed food court behind the 7-11 that is opposite the big HDB offices? If so I'm with you, I walked through it once and browsed but it seemed rather gloomy in there.

If staying in the TP area we'd have sushi at Sakae Sushi in the block next to Courts. That said it could be very hit and miss, particularly the hot dishes. I quite often got take-out from the place next to McDonalds. But really it was not even comparable to that you can get from Isetan...

What is Paddy's Point? Blimey I thought I knew TP quite well! :)

I thought the pool area at Trellis was very nice, but the apartments were relatively a little small for the price. If your unit is painted in white it costs very little to have it redone, you'll see the ads in the Classified section of the Daily Birdcage-Liner.

Just backed read...when I first moved here in Holland, I only saw white people in the Holland Village proper and when I go to work. Practically never saw any here in the HDB's.

But now, there're more of them now. Oh look; I just saw one from my window right now. I'm guessing there are more non-condo living types now?


PS yeah, yeah, yeah...I know it's more complex than that.
