Majulah, Bukit Panjang!

First. A tribute to the two pioneer estate-blogs. It's interesting now that I'm mentally assigning social weight and status to the various estates in Singapore.

Tiong Bahru, old and charming estate, possibly up there with the lao-das in the Estate-Circuit, strutting around with a long-beard acknowledging courtesy calls from other estates tinged with a sepia-hued age-earned respect. Enough. Tiong Bahru, replete with interesting shops, had its fair share of TV fame, few MRT stops away from town, in the thick of action.

Next, Bishan, home of famous schools, home to Tan Ah Teck's family (in case you didn't rmb, Under One Roof!), home to the Girl Guides, the MOELC, and supposedly the centre of Singapore. And more.

And now bukit panjang! Sometimes known as Upper Upper Bukit Timah (but when I mention this to Bukit-Timah-people I mostly get accused of attempting to associate myself with that richer estate). Sometimes misunderstood as a far-flung no man's land. Most of the time not really that well-known.

We don't have happy-sit-and-meet areas like Holland V or Serangoon Gardens, or infamous malls like Parkway Parade, or huge libraries like Woodlands or Jurong East. Or ice-skating rinks. Or driving centres. There's nothing particularly distinctive about our area, EXCEPT the LRT.

First New Town to get the LRT. In fact, I was so passionate about this blog that I rushed out just now to try to get a photo.

However, as you can see, it turned out like pang-sai. You can't even see the LRT train. I will take a better one tomorrow, so as not to get looked down upon by the increasing number of professional photographers we have in singapore (it seems!) Ha ha!

I will end this post with an open invitation to any resident in bukit panjang to contribute to the blog! Naturally, if you post anything strange or offensive I will have to tick you out of your blogging rights. I'm finding this whole community-outreach thing really exciting! Contact me at Title your email with Bukit Panjang Blog. ^_^

Good Night!
