Visited Beach Road market recently to sew up broke drybag clip and slippers.
Used unit #02-180 and the older lady was very helpful (mostly Mandarin speaking).
Repaired the 3 items for $12/-. [Bag sew was $2 but to be fair the slippers were tricky to fit into the machine slot.]
Sells bungee, reflective cloth (silverish), and plastic yellow reflective tape (the kind cyclists use).
Also a wide collection of clips, webbing etc.

 8)Useful diving items!!  ;D
Things one can do:
Reflective tape for smb, personalize harness/bcd, convert computer & compass to bungee mount, make a crotch strap, etc etc

Notes:
- About half empty hawker centre after the renovations.
- Quite a number of stores upstairs were not open and no signboard (no more tenants??)
- Tried my fav prawn noodle store (facing carpark entrace side) but a bit disappointed with watery soup
$4/- did get me a big bowl with 3 prawn and big pieces of pork.

All the sewing stores said they don't do neoprene sewing (wanted to shorted my dive shorts) :'(.
Any advice-suggestions/??  ???
