    this is common.
    nowadays, all laundry shops send their dirty laundry to JB.
    even prostitutes find Geylang to expensive.
    every morning at 10am, they take buses to Singapore to serve Singapore men and leave Singapore by 8pm.
    they dont want to stay overnight.

    When I got my spectacles from Spore I would go to Isaacs & back then the workshop they used was in Spore.

    However it's been years & now I go to Thailand to get the best frames & lenses that are available at the store & receive a VAT refund when I return to Spore:)

    alot of stupid idiots think their property and HDB values high nevermind. this asset enhancement has backfired and the worst is yet to come. as a result of this stupid short sighted policy and over reliance on casino and oil industry, suddenly the economy is tanking like shit and property would drop like a rock overnight early 2017. how to survive when a crap meal for 2 at a restaurant nowadays costs easily a few hundred dollars and the food tastes like shit. any JB or KL hawker center food taste better than michelin star pseudo cuisine.

    just go to JB KSL mall and make the cheap spectacles on your own. there are at least 10 shops on level B2 itself.

    why pay local opticians to fund their sky high sinkie rentals?

    We need to cede Sinkapore to Duterte and he will make Sinkapore great again as a new province of the Philippines.

    Maybe you looked prosperous, so they overcharged you
