Beware the Dizziness Centre

I'd like to see the Dizziness Doctor, please

That’s for when your head’s still spinning from discovering that your friendly neighbourhood 7-Eleven, which is supposed to be open 24 hours – wasn’t one of their taglines ‘always close but never closed’? – isn’t open 24 hours:

WTF? It's a 7-11 for gawd's sakes
Taufik was really disappointed he could only sell Slurpees* 13 hours a day

*Interestingly, while looking up hyperlinks for this post, I found out that 7-Eleven Singapore “has four proprietary products – Big Gulp, Slurpee, Mr Softee soft serve ice cream and Quickbites”, which, if I take the meaning of that correctly, means that those things are owned by the Singapore franchise, and which explains why I couldn’t find Slurpees in other countries (unless I didn’t look hard enough, which is also possible, because I couldn’t have possibly been hankering for a Slurpee in another country’s 7-Eleven, could I? No, I don’t think so).

  1. I remember the original ICEE, with the polar bear mascot. The quality has dropped lah. Or maybe I am not wearing childhood junk food blinders anymore.
