    What about the Badminton Court itself and Fatty Weng Restaurant?

    The only time I've been to a prawn fishing place was in Hatyai. Good setup with beer and TV. My Thai friends brought me there, during a WC qualifier Thailand v. N. Korea. Ended up Thailand lost 1-4. :mad: Inside my heart actually supported N. Korea, but couldn't say out loud of course. :eek:

    Grandlink is opposite City Sq, Lor 44 I think. Place shut down coz owner failed to pay his staff 3 months salary and rental too. Owner was a damn nice chap. Tragedy coz of $ problems. Couldn't make a comeback coz of overwhelming debts. Related to Rashid Hussain of RHB.

    Decent health spa very hard to survive, because of rental. And a lack of skilled personnel in this expertise. Most of these in the end have to turn to special skills to earn the money.

    Parklane got decent health club??? This is something new. health club I know, but not decent.

    I also away from Sg very long time. Decent health spa? Don't know if you and me on the same page, but for me, they're in Thailand and Indonesia. Don't spend your money in Sg.

    Cheers!

    yes, that one. Can't remember the old name. Went once with friend. got buffet and massage. Was it world spa or something along that (can't really recall because really quite long ago) But its clean. Now badminton hall new spa is called g spa. The massage pricing should include food. If not included, then really super ex.

    I never gone before, so don't ask me for FR.

    Yes, a very sad story. His son's delivery was delayed, during Mother's Day 19yrs ago coz the lady gynae was celebrating Mother's Day. Resulting from the late delivery, his son suffered brain damage. Last June, tumour. At least 2 operations. His suicide must have taken place after he was left with no option. Saddest part, he had to strangle his son first.

    He helped many financially in the 90s. When he was in bad shape, friends avoided him. That's the reality of the society we live in today.

    The prawn fishing is done in the badminton courts itself. Open 24 hours and very popular. Many nice mei mei go there so lots of chance for a handsome young man like you.

    They have a BBQ area in the back where you can go BBQ whatever you have caught. If you didn't catch anything, you can buy prawns to BBQ. They have the big screen TV to watch EPL there. Best part is beer is charged at standard kopitiam prices.

    On Fatty Weng, it is still next door. It is however now manned by an army of FT cooks. As such, quality has fallen so that it is now only about the same as any ordinary chse char stall.
