Borders

I was surfing Kinokuniya.com and Amazon.com and I realised that I am going to miss Borders at Wheelock. For all I diss about Borders, it’s been quite a landmark store at the half obscure corner of Orchard and Scotts Rds. All the time I whittled there while waiting for people, browsing magazines, buying overpriced pencils, failing at finding my books, raking over the bestsellers, the benches by the glass walls. One less bookstore is always a bad thing, Borders or not. It wasn’t perfect, it wasn’t good enough for me compared to Kinokuniya, but it was decently nice. Pity it couldn’t earn my money. Sorry for the times I came in and browsed but decided to buy at Kino instead. I hope you don’t get replaced by some crappy shoe or clothing store with no customers. Wheelock’s gonna be a much crappier and colder place without you around.
