Mel got lost here leading a company in a heli-insert exercise here in the early 90s during one of his reservist stints. Heheh… Did you know that most of what is now this suburban town were once ponds of water for rearing shrimps? Can’t imagine that this has transformed into a residential town! And don’t forget to get to the only hot spring in Singapore. Read how to get there at this page.
Merely 10 years ago, it might had been considered by some to be the northern end of Singapore in a sense. Because this was literally where the North-South MRT line terminated. Yeah. Imagine that. It was in 1996 that the circular looking service line that is still called “north-south’ came to be full connected. At least to the East-West line. Fun rail history huh?
Part of the MRT series here.
