Both quite far apart. Good for the residents at both ends.

NTUC outlet at Canberra Plaza is quite small. Selection not as good as Sheng Siong at Blk 105 Canberra Street (Eastbrook). Not complaining though.

All the essential F&B outlets and supermarkets are within Canberra. Don't even have to step out to Yishun or Woodlands.



Government is investing heavily on infrastructure in the North and Northeast according to URA Masterplan.
700m apart, many people stay in between both. I can walk to either one.

The NTUC has a good selection of stuffs, my wife like to go there instead of shengsiong.

You must be staying in Eastwave or estates within its perimeter.

Depends what you are looking for.

For me I shop mostly at the bigger Sheng Siong outlets because they have jumbo size packaging for condiments, sauces, etc. Very value for money.

For loose items like bread, drinks, etc. I just go wherever that is convenient.

But NTUC always more ex then $$....
In general yes.

Only the best if you:

1) Lock in at low prices in the first few batches of BTO releases before the official announcement of Canberra MRT Station on 01/08/14.
2) Not required to travel around much. Work in the North region or from home.
3) Travel to Malaysia frequently.
4) Spacious roads/public space, peace, quiet, nature and sea recreation activities lover.

Jurong East HSR was supposed to be a game changer but now dreams kaput!

I expect RTS to have construction delays on Malaysia side. Nothing surprising lah!

Currently have not reach full potential.

Once Bukit Canberra, new schools and the rejuvenation of Sembawang Shipyard are completed then can see major difference. However the fundamental amenities are in place for residents. Enjoy the peace and quiet while it lasts.

Can buy the ec there bo?
For own stay is ok but purely for investment I think Yishun and Punggol are better as have more rental demand in the north/northeast region.
