Game Over

I took a stroll around The Star the other day. The row of dingy, foot-courtesque eateries and the dodgy old Irish pub are but a distant nightmare compared to what’s now in their place: world class restaurants with the likes of Momofuku and Black, the high-end designer shops like Chanel […]
