The MRT series – Redhill (EW18)

Also called Bukit Merah, the place was so-named because of the red soil. Have you heard of the story of Hang Nadim? This was the boy who gave the idea of solving the swordfish infestation to his King. But the story goes on that he was eventually executed by the King who was jealous of his youthful wisdom… and that the hill he was executed was stained red with his blood.

Yeah it may sound like a myth, but it’s no myth that this area is red hot property! For some reason, this and the few adjoining areas are well sought after as a place to live. Perhaps the name is apt. Red hot hill of apartments that are very much sought after… heheh.
