Anyone who’s lived in Jurong would know that there are three Jurong Wests.
The first is the old Jurong West 400+, an area that’s beside a canal and made famous after a massive fire brought down an entire wet market.
The second is the old Jurong West 500+, an area beside 400+ with hawker food so good, people all over Singapore would go over there just to have a meal. It’s, however, unknown how many of those hawkers have retired.
The third is the new Jurong West, the one near Boon Lay MRT Station. There’s nothing there except Jurong Point, so it’s not as exciting.
So, which Jurong West is getting redder with Cai Shen Ye?
Jurong West 500+ Having a Red Pasar Malam with Cai Shen Ye
Other than housing one of the greatest hawkers in Singapore, the Jurong West 500+ houses quite a bit of empty spaces as well.
Here, take a look.
Empty spaces here and there.
But it’s understandable: a lot of old folks live there and unlike new estates, old folks are used to empty spaces so that they can mingle around and chit-chat.
And these empty spaces are about to turn red because a pasar malam has landed there.
