The MRT Series – Bedok (EW5)

Welcome to Bedok! Do you think the name of this new town of our little red dot came from the Malay word for Bedoh (“drum’) or Biduk (‘small boat’)? A few posts ago, you might have recalled about how the red cliffs of Tanah Merah were a navigational marker for voyagers from hundreds of years past. So it should not surprise you that this place was once by the sea.

But then as modernity requires, land was reclaimed from the sea and today the Bedok where the station and neighbourhood is – is no longer near the sea. Today one can roam about a intensely built up town. Enjoy a cuppa of local kopi and buy some fruits. Gems in daily life!
