The MRT series – Toa Payoh (NS19)

As the second oldest HDB estate (suburban town), Toa Payoh was said to be a place of squatters that got a bad name because of the gang activities in the 1960s till 1980s. Did you know that Queen Elizabeth II visited a family in this estate? She first touched this estate in 1962 (before her coronation in 1963) and came for a return visit in 2006. To the same family! What a change it must had been for her to witness!

As children we used to make fun of this estate as big ‘大’, slap ‘巴’, shake ‘摇’. Heheh… But to be serious, did you know its garden used to be a place where newly wed couples go to take outdoor photos? Can’t imagine that huh?
