ANOTHER ICON OF SINGAPORE WILL CLOSE, GOODBYE HUP LEE COFFEE SHOP

Hup Lee coffee shop, an icon in the Jalan Besar area, will be closing its doors on 22 August. The shophouse space, which Hup Lee has occupied since the 1950s, has been sold, and is believed to be converted into a restaurant.

MORE PRIVATE SCHOOLS IN SG CLOSING DOWN, LESSER FOREIGN STUDENTS ENROLLED?

Singapore wants to claim itself as being an education hub. But news reports have indicated that more private schools have shut down last year. In fact, the numbers mentioned indicated that the total number of private schools left operating in Singapore is 293, the first time it has gone down below 300 since 2012.

Among the private schools closed are big names such as Nanyang Education Institute and M2 Academy, which opened with a bang in Orchard Road just three years ago. Even more are expected to exit the scene this year, as the authorities prepare to enforce new and stricter rules.
