Those of us who love hunting for supper at midnight would head to our nearest McDonald’s outlet that’s open 24/7.

Unfortunately, when one diner wanted to grab a late-night snack of spicy nuggets at Tampines East Community Club (CC), her plan did not come to fruition due to a fire at the McDonald’s outlet.
