Walk 5 minutes to mrt and take 30mins train to town, its more accessible than those who stay at amk but not near the mrt Station.

just now jiak the curry poks at blk 105 coffeeshop.. really not bad
Went yesterday (Sun) specially to try your Malay stall curry puff recommendation.

Business so good until sold out and have to wait for 1.5hrs for next batch.

Service staff also a bit stuck up. I went google reviews and read a few negative feedback on service related issues also.

Oh well forget it.

Moving in to Canberra early next year, just bought a place to stay. Hope I dont regret my decision =P
If you are a peace and quiet lover you will enjoy Canberra.

For now only Blk 105 is the most crowded. When Canberra Plaza opens it may change.

Has always been like that.

Never take bus for damn long, nowadays take mrt.
Canberra MRT station's opening is really much more convenient and time saving.

I literally dashed 50m from link bridge to gantry and onto train.

On the link bridge there are some shop units. I believe not open for tender yet.

U will never regret. Like holiday resort feel.
Yes indeed. So quiet that you can hear bird chirping from far away.

PCN roads are wide and smooth for cycling.

For those who are used to congested and high population density districts you may need some time to adjust to the slower pace and lepak lifestyle in the Canberra part of Sembawang.

Reach Mrt stn door is different fm reaching the platform. If u spend 15min walking to t platform. Or transit, does that count into Yr travelling time?
