Well, a local colleague of mine used to curse Mustafa as all-things Indian ..

And Saturday night, about midnight, whom do I bump into in Mustafa ?? My good buddie, who sheepishly admits that not many places can be open at that time of the day to buy grocery .. :D

Their book collection is increasing, and so does their live plants, and so does their other stuff.




Not sure if they still do, but, sometime ago, Mustafa was also selling Motor Cars, like in those with 4 wheels and engine and able to carry passengers .. :D

Or take the MRT to Tanjong Pagar (one stop away from Raffles Place) and go to NTUC Fairprice at Tanjong Pagar Plaza (cheaper fresh fruits). :)
Does Ascott and NTUC go in the same line ?? :???: :???: :???:

Ha ha .. well, I wonder if OP has been here, and has an idea of the 'distance' to travel here from home to food, or super market :D :D

Carrefour has left Singapore since 2012.

Dredging up this 4 year old post with absolute nonsense - must be desperate to increase the post count.

To update this topic, one can take the red line up to Dhoby Ghaut and go to the NTUC Fairprice that took over the Carrefour location at Singapura Plaza, or now that the Downtown line is running, one could walk from Raffles Place to the Downtown station and go 2 stops up to Chinatown, where there's another NTUC Fairprice.
