The MRT Series – Kembangan (EW6)

Like Bedok, this stretch was along the coast in the distant past. And there was a kampong (ie village) of the same name too if one is to believe. As with many all over the island, these were removed in the name of development, or progress.

But in its place we still see vestiges of old shop houses from an era where high rise meant no more than 3 floors… It’s a sparse mix of old and new, private and public housing.  A melange that is not unlike what one should expect from the little red dot.

One thing is; can’t be sure if Wiki is correct that Kembangan means ‘expansion’… and Google translate did not seem to work. Perhaps the word flowering was one of the potential results as we hovered over the translation… Any takers to correct us?
