McDonald’s – As We Say Goodbye to King Albert Park

By Daniel, April 16, 2012

If you have not heard, King Albert Park fondly known as K.A.P has been sold to Oxley Holdings for $150 million. That would mean all seven units, including the favourites Cold Storage, Island Creamery and yes, McDonald’s at KAP would be closing and saying goodbye.

Online voices are not too happy about it – that an “iconic 20 year place” is going to be turned into another condominium; that they are losing part of their memories; and this is coming right after the closure of East Coast Park.

To many, they do not understand the “sadness” and fuss… Good riddance to another fast food restaurant. But there is another group of people who feels lost about the fate of this “heritage site”.

I digged out my old photos taken at King Albert Park for your amusement

We belong to the Generation Y. Many of whom grew up studying in McDonalds throughout their teenage years, perhaps also where we celebrated our childhood birthdays, had our first Happy Meals, queued up for the Millennium Hello Kitty… where we spent our tears and joys. And we already lost Far East Plaza and East Coast.

The NP, HCJC, NJC, ACJC, CHS, NYGS, and MGS students can perhaps identify more.

Taken when I was 17. The McDonald’s figurines are still there!

    Yes, it will just become memories. Brought my kids there every weekend when we were living in Bukit Panjang in the early 1990s. They are adults now. Also love the Cold Storage there.

    Used to go there everyweekend when Im staying near that area. Especially at night when we are hungry we will drive thru the Mac. Now it given a new life and I’m sure it’s gone for the good. Hoping to see the upcoming new development soon!!!

    The Mac Drive Thru is very convenient for residents staying nearby… wonder where is the nearest Drive Thru when this is gone.
