With that kind of prices, would rather eat at Sembawang MRT foodcourt and Yishun Northpoint. More choices, better quality.

Personally, if no service I prefer after meal, then buy from outside shops cheaper anyway.
What outside shops?

Please don't move to Canberra. It is so close to ulu Sembawang and siao lang Yishun. There are plenty of better estates to move to. When MRT is up i want to get be able to get in. Please please leave this slum alone and go elsewhere which is not a slum.
Thank you.

Just took 883 pass the Canberra estate.. Look like ghost town sia. No amenities, lots of carpark with no cars. Mrt station not even completed. Only 1 bus... see riao jin scary...
Which mountain you come out from?
There is no ghost town in Singapore...
There is only CeCa Town, there is no Ghost Town.


As long as government shout "CeCa! CeCa CeCa!"..

Slumberra Update (October 2018)

Lately went down and jalan jalan at Slumberra. First stop is the coffeshop at EastBrook (Blk 105). Really GG prices. Upsized ice coffee S$2.00! Yong Tau Fu S$4.20!

Eastlink II 80% completed. Eastlink I 70% completed. Paint work for both Eastlink I and II are so much better looking than the rest of the estate. Very "condo" looking.

Link bridge between Canberra Plaza (Eastlink I) and Canberra MRT Station has been casted and 50% completed. Canberra MRT Station's roof is up. Overall 60% completed. I believe Canberra MRT Station should be open by this time next year.

Residents from Slumberra are you ready to huat?

By the way Northpoint City mall at Yislum crowded as usual.

PS: Please don't be racists and CECA here and there whenever there is a discussion on Northern Singapore. You can often see bangla workers in Northern Singapore as most dormitories are located there. We need these foreign workers for the construction and sanitary industry. What we do not need is those fake FTs be it Ang Moh, Ah Neh, Pinoy or Ah Tiong.

That is what I commented previously. Obvious overcharging!

It is not even an air conditioned food court but just a newly opened coffeeshop.

Anyway I believe in free market dynamics. If consumers are kum gong enough to support these stalls then what can you say? But if consumers do not support such prices then naturally these stalls will fold up in time.

Over at Sembawang MRT Station there are many food stalls in the vicinity that have reasonable prices. Canberra = Atas price? Confirm will be expensive to shop and eat at Canberra Plaza's shops.

Bangla workers I thought are from Bangladesh ... that is why call bangla workers.

CeCa workers are called Ceca because India and Singapore signed Ceca treaty and they are mainly Indian workers.

Am I right or Are you Wrong?
