Of Hotel 81

Is it that Kovan is now the owner of a brand new Hotel 81? Such small rooms though, but at least brand new furniture. You know that great feeling when you have a shower and the showerhead and taps actually gleam with brand-newness. Gives you a shiok knowing they couldn't have been too much muck and grime infesting the damn sanctum of a bathroom before you.

I say they open another 81 right smack in Ang Mo Kio Central. Doesn't the Prime Minister's ward deserve a hotel of its own, after all we ARE getting Singapore's biggest mall. That the construction of the mall didn't even go up for public tender but was split amongst 2 quasi government outfits is of course something we don't discuss.

And also, this would stop the peeping tom problem in Ang Mo Kio Park. Yeah, that's the eerie one the MRT faces. On a cold dark night, look out for the eyes up in the trees, or the darting figures a.k.a. shadow play.

But then again, I'd like to own a hotel. Not a mainstream branded market player like 81 or Fragrance. But rather a niche, boutique one like Majestic. I'd make it a Bollywood/Kollywood mania one. You don't get toothbrushes and paste, you get "pal podi", thats that brown powdery thing people in India use to scrub their pearly whites.

It really seems to me that after, Palace, Bencoolen, Joo Chiat, Star, Opera, Princess, Orchid, Gold, Hollywood, Geylang, Classic, Chinatown, Sakura, Changi, Elegance, Bugis, Kovan, Balestier, Cherry, Cosy, Fuji, Lavender and Spring [Yes, you didn't realize there were already 23 right?], next on the list should be Indian/Malay mainstream locations. I propose Yishun, Woodlands, AMK, Choa Chu Kang. Come on, we need to get a room to have a quick lay too right?

Did I also mention Kovan costs 20 bucks more than the other estabs, maybe its their "new" special price. Residents of Hougang, rejoice!
