Ever wondered why Tampines One was named Tampines One? Today, a friend enlightened me.
Notice that it has the same naming convention as Changi Airport Terminal One? So this is to provide room for future expension. In 5 years time, Tampines Two will be coming up, with better facilities, with more exclusive brands such as Gucci and Prada opening their doors to neighbourhood richies.
Who knows, within the span of the next 10 years, maybe even Tampines Three would be built. Oh, and of course we can't forget about Budget Tampines! The entire shopping mall would have no air conditioning, with a self-service concept where there will be no service staff but rather rows of cashiers at the exit waiting for the customers to bring their self-picked products over to make payment. Also, there would be no eateries in Budget Tampines, but only 1 single stall selling Instant Noodles. If you want to shop at night, remember to bring your own torchlights as lightsticks will only be supplied to the cashier counters.
Now that you have been enlightened, go ahead and pass this information on to the next generation.
