The basement infrastructure works of Kampung Admiralty are ongoing.
NTUC Food Fare@Admiralty has seen a few new stalls again. Out of interests I ask my favourite stalls why the previous owners want to give up their store. Is it beacause of bad business or venturing into new grounds? I found out that NTUC Food Fare has risen the stall rentals once again and some stall holders has chosen to give up their business due to the high rental.
There are a few stores who now charges 20 cents for package food. This includes the Chicken Rice Store, Wan Tun Noodle Store and the Fish Soup Store. These costs are pass to the consumers and I think that 20 cents for packaging is just too expensive. If you happen to be in Toa Payoh Industrial area, a piece of these packaging is less than 10 cents. Furthermore if you buy in bulk, the cost may be even lower.
NTUC Food Fare is actually giving discount to NTUC Members, this looks encouraging. Some stores will offer a 20 cents discount on a promotion dish for NTUC Members only. But on the other end, NTUC Food Fare is also driving the food costs up by rising the stall rentals.

There was another funfilled function organised by the RC Committe today. My daughter attended a drawing contest. She also get free coupons from her PAP kindergarden to attend the events. You get free food, goodie bags and play games. It is to help residents to bond in the Admiralty area. Prime Minister Lee also visited this community event and my daughter was lucky enough to shake hands with him. A rare and special moment. My son, Brian shook hands with our MP, Ellen Lee.
Admiralty RC and PAP Kindergarden has always team up to organise major community events. If you attracted the children, then the parents and neighbours will all be coming. A good strategy as employed by MacDonald.
