Nothing wrong with ghost town. I personally know a few folks who purposely purchase properties in quiet areas cause they are sick and tired of how overcrowded everywhere else is in Singapore
U are right.
It's has a holidaying feel.

I don't know why need to keep building shopping malls, not as if the shops are already struggling to make profits. Just behind it is Sembawang Shopping Centre, further up is Sun Plaza and toward Yishun got mega NorthPoint City opening soon.

It's for Canberra residents.

Quite far from mrt.

Ok lah, connected to PCN and straight road, can cycle to station in the future. It's not that bad the walking distance assuming you cut through the shopping centre.

At the price I got the project at, I really cannot complain.

It is not a full fledged shopping mall la.

More of a neighbourhood plaza. Like 888 in woodlands. Not your Causeway Point hor
