Since I'm reviewing food places

From my comment over at Stellou's blog:
In Singapore, there is Big Ben's Place that offers tasty, tasty British pies. While their main outlet is at the not-too-accessible Swan Lake Avenue, they have recently rented a space at Giant supermarket at Parkway Parade where they sell their delightful pies. A sign beside the space says, "Student discount 10%". So when my teacher friend Ondine and I were there after school one day, buying pies, we twinkled at the young man manning the stall and asked, "If we wear school uniforms the next time we come, will you give us a student discount?" Whereupon the young man, because he is a clever young man, he said, "Sure! Next time!"

We haven't gone back yet. I don't even have a school uniform that I can resurrect, see. Maybe for Halloween...
If anyone has a girl's school uniform that you think could fit me, I'll be quite happy to go test the Big Ben's young man's generosity. And we don't have to wait till Halloween.

have you tried Don's Pie at China Square? along the same row of shophouses as Yakun, but at the other end instead.

Aussie pies are tasty too. If I buy frozen pies, I try to get Aussie ones, if the supermarket has them in stock.

As for school uniforms, I'm still looking to borrow something that I can fit into that won't be indecently short!

gecko > I've heard of Don's Pies and I think I had them once, but it's just not in my kampong.

Agagooga > If you insist ;)

JellyGirl > Swan Lake Avenue is, appropriately enough, in the Opera Estate area behind Siglap. My neck of the woods.
