        1. re: wilafur

          No, couple of doors down in the same strip mall.

        2. J&J

          After that, I don't care so much.

          1. -. J&J
            =. Mei Long Village

            Funny how J&J and Mei Long Village are just a few feet apart from each other. Major XLB mojo going on.
