I still remember going to Funan to buy a computer with my mom in the 1990, the mall was under renovation from the old style Sim Lim Square to the current design mall.

The 1990's computer brands like Ranger.

Not too sure why, but the mcd over there had additional seats and tables placed/located in such a way that no one knew/hardly bothered to look into that area to find seats. It's located after the steps on the upper levels.

Late 80s. Pirated games galore. Piracy took actual effort in those days. I remember saving up to buy one of the Ultima series and the shop uncle had to photocopy the game manual for me. All 300 pages of it. Lol. Literally heaven for a 9 year old me.
