The photo store beside them was called Fotonice, which has been moved to Union Square and is now known as Fotodigio.

Located on the right side by the southeast entrance was a movie rental store. As a kid back then, I was always excited to see new posters of the upcoming film/dramas on their windows.

Ulferts furniture was an anchor store located in the center, now moved to Continental Square.

There was also a movie theatre above Ulferts on the 2nd level but it was closed down later.

2nd level beside the high ceiling of the bowling alley was the original home of AM1470/FM96.1. It was moved to Broadway and Cambie after, then moved back to Aberdeen when the new building was completed.

Here's a small pic from Wikipedia:

The Curry at Admiralty is pretty good, and the bubble waffles. I haven't really had much reason to be in that mall heh.
Oh and you're wrong, the most under-rated food court is Empire (same parking lot as Shiang Garden). The Baked Chicken and Beef Noodles are orgasmic.

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

Even Happy Date changed owners.. Dai Hing Congee in that mall is still the same though.

I only go to Aberdeen Square to study because of free wifi and complete silence lol
The chairs that are connected to the table suck though because they tilt up towards your thighs.. I guess they don't want you to stay too long there.. But the removable chairs closer to the skytrain skywalk are money though.

And Shiny Tea has some bombass authentic TW BBT

I believe he also owns the that complex that has London Drugs and Whole Foods located on Broadway and Cambie.

I can't remember the name of the stall, but it's something like "Choi's Famous Chicken", you can't miss it, they pretty much only sell chicken. The "Yeem Gok Gai Fan", I don't know why but the young guy that works there always tries to recommend the Beef curry on me, one time I caved, it sucked balls.

I also can't remember the name of the stall for the beef noodles, but they also sell Snake soup.

You can't really miss it. There's only like 8 food stalls there. It's not the vegetarian one, not the Shanghainese one, not the BBQ stall, not James Snacks (last time I had the Clay Pot is was mushy, bleh)

So that leaves the beef noodle place, the chicken place, and also this HK cafe style stall that has a pretty good fried vermicelli too.
