New developments in my area

Posted by Dawn at Monday, December 28, 2009
I have always been VERY proud of where I am staying. I love that it is developing and has so much room for more developments.

Just a couple of weeks back, I was driving in Sengkang and Punggol and there seems to be construction going on everywhere.

Here's the construction of Kopitiam Square which is a combination of wet market and food court with lots of stalls! This is just located opposite Compass Point Shopping Centre, next to MRT station.


By the way, I took all these pictures while driving my car...I actually wind down the windows and used one hand to snap these shots while my car was still moving. Haha! I feel like a journalist who would do anything for my readers! ;p

Then there's the construction of HDB flats in Punggol, near the MRT



There was construction of school which looked really huge


as well as Treelodge, which is Singapore's first green mark platinum public housing to be built here in Punggol.



Then we dropped by at Punggol Marina to see if anything has changed. Great place to bring the kids to just run around and see the view!



They also have prawn fishing at the club now where you can catch huge prawns and BBQ them on the spot!


Then more developments took place at Punggol beach where they are FINALLY starting to clear the trees facing the beach to make way for restaurants and pavements.




I felt excited as I saw so much construction happening around me. Cant wait for it to be ready!


Recently, Sheng Siong Supermarket came to Punggol and besides that, there is also a bakery shop and food court- more places to eat!

I enjoy going to Sheng Siong to show Caleb the different kinds of live fish, crabs and shell fish!



Recently, I even bought a very unique looking vegetables at Sheng Siong as I heard from the woman working there that it tastes very nice. Even Vicky confirmed it as she has eaten it before.



You just fry with garlic and oyster sauce.


It is very nice!!! I loved it as its crunchy and sweet! However, I have been trying to go back to the supermarket to buy it, but to no avail. Its really a rare item!

Just next to Sheng Siong, there's a playground. So we took the kids there one night while Vicky was on leave.




Caleb and Danielle was having loads of fun!


There was also an area for adults or the elderly to exercise. Its different from most HDB area as the machines are more interesting.



They even have machines suited for wheelchair users.




Throughout these few weeks, we have been travelling new places in Punggol and Sengkang. And just today, we went to the Riverside Park in Sengkang.

Its still quite empty but very spacious! Great for the young ones to run about without fearing much for their safety!



There were also a number of ponds with lots of fish! There was a father and son there who were feeding the fishes with bread and they also gave us one slice for us to feed them! So fun!





There was not much things but plants and space! So if you are interested, I would advise you to go during early mornings or late evenings where it is cooler as there is hardly much shade!


Caleb was running alot there!



CT was also having fun trying to climb this statue!


As we were leaving the carpark, I saw this on the floor. Isnt this interesting?


After walking and running in the park, we went to the newly constructed Kopitiam Square which I passed by about 2 weeks back where it was still undergoing construction.

The parking there was still free..but in future, you can only park by using your Kopitiam Card.


There's the wet market and food court which has lots of yummy food stalls!





Just a few days back, I was asking my colleague from China who just moved from Pasir Ris to Punggol if he liked staying in Punggol and he answered," Yes! I love it!"

I feel so assured allowing my children to grow up living here as there are just so many things to see and more stuff coming up which I cant wait. For example, a horse stables for children to ride, a golf course, Punggol beach and water park as well as Sengkang's fruit island etc etc.

As my flat now cost twice as expensive as I bought it..I also cant wait when it will rise to 3 times the cost I paid for. I believe it will be soon. This is definitely the best investment I have made!
