The MRT series – Yew Tee (NS5)

Definitely very new estate named after an old village. Did you know in the Teochew Chinese dialect the name of the station means “oil pond” 油池? And at this point it all really ends – residential that is. If you do come here the canal walk separating it from the industrial area is a definite must, because it is so scenic in the morning. If not, at least come for the cat… heheh…

Oil pond or not, it is one of those HDB new towns we call them. Pretty much new and further away from the glitzy skyscrapers that tourists are more familiar with. Will you spend more time exploring this former pond?

  1. Ah, I note that pond is one of the cases where the Japanese kanji hasn’t changed from the original Chinese character 池 (ike in Japanese).. I wonder if you can add a cat challenge to your MRT tour, can we get a cat at each stop? 😂
