    SINGAPORE: Tiong Bahru Market and Food Centre will be temporarily closed from Monday (Feb 20), according to the National Environment Agency (NEA).

    In a notice on their website, NEA said the food centre will close for three months for repairs, redecoration and renovation works. It is expected to reopen on May 19.

    The market at 30 Seng Poh Road was originally called Seng Poh Road Market and officially opened in January 1951. In 2004, it was shut for two years for a complete rebuild. It then reopened in 2006 as a two-storey building and renamed to Tiong Bahru Market and Food Centre at a cost of S$16.8 million.

    The price would have gone up with or without even without the closure because price hikes are in the genes of the PAP.

    Can think of 3 reasons for the upgrade:
    First it rewarded their cronies with the project i.e. $$$
    Secondly it served to prop up the statistics on the economy of Spore
    3rdly it gave an excuse to increase the rentals

    stupid.
    the building is still healthy and new.
    just a fresh coat of paint will do.
    why need 3 stupid months?
