Nowadays, you can practically see ATM machines in each petrol kiosks. Different banks have different collaborations with the petrol chains. For example, in Shell Stations, you will have UOB ATM machines whereas in Esso stations, you will find DBS tellers and Citibank ATMs. Esso Newton even has a drive through ATM.
What kicked off the idea of having ATM machines in petrol kiosks? Is it due to drivers not having credit cards or cash to pay for petrol? Well that doesn’t make sense because they still can pay by NETS. Anyone know of why atms ?
Bathe your dog!
Yes, I am not kidding. Indicated in the Straits Times, you can do this at Caltex Station along East Coast Station. It is not too difficult to guess why it is located at East. This is because East Coast is where all the private housings are, pets there live better than some humans in my opinion.
Express Laundry Service is available at Upper Thomson Station. That makes it really convenient for the busy executive. I will make use of this service as I hate doing the laundry myself.
Old Chang Kee is now located at selected Caltex stations. You cal also find Delifrance or Polar Puffs atATMs. Esso stations too.
Feeling hungry? Grab a curry puff from Old Chang Kee or a croissant from Delifrance while waiting for your car. I wish there is Starbucks too.
Pay Your Bills
I often miss due dates to post cheques for payment and I end up calling the service desk for overdue fines for waiver. For drivers like me, going to a shopping mall to pay for these bills will mean additional cost incurred from parking.
So I make it a point to put all my bills in the car, and pay it whenever I need to top up my petrol. The AXS stations that are conveniently located within the kiosks.
Shop for fresh groceries.
Gone are the days where fresh groceries can only be obtained from wet markets and supermarkets. At the Lorong Chuan Esso kiosk, drivers can now get fresh groceries ranging
from vegetables to fresh fruits!
