JUNCTION 8 WAS IN THE DARK FOR 7 HOURS DUE TO POWERT TRIP ON SUNDAY

Dear A.S.S. Editor

On Sunday, about 20 stores were affected when Bishan’s Junction 8 Shopping Centre had a power trip. What is so unusual about this power trip was that it lasted a full 7 hours!

Yes, 7 hours before power was restored to a shopping centre in one of the priciest districts of Singapore. And to make things worse, it was a Sunday, which means the shops losing more crowd and potential business because of this trip.

What happened? No word forthcoming from the management of Junction 8, bar an apology to tenants and shoppers. How can a power trip lasts for up to 7 hours, without a solution found in the interim? Singapore’s malls certainly not like it used to be.
