‘Brutally honest’, funny map shows what each Singapore neighbourhood is known for
SINGAPORE – What comes to mind when a friend mentions Queenstown? Is it sports shoes?
What about Geylang? We’d bet that more than a few of you said “prostitutes” or something to that effect.
According to a map that purports to chart what each neighbourhood in Singapore is most popularly known for, Yishun is the place to find murderersand siao langs (the “crazies”), and Bukit Batok is known for “rat hill”.
As Coconuts Singapore rightly pointed out, the map is most politically incorrect, but, yet, infinitely funny.
Spend a few moments looking at the map and you’ll notice how Bukit Timah is described as ‘Rich People’, while those in Upper Bukit Timah are ‘not so rich’. City Harvest Church gets a mention too and there’s nothing more apt than simply calling it ‘China Wine‘.
Look towards the east and Bedok Reservoir is marked out as ‘Suicide’, while East Coast Park is known as ‘Beach’. Over at the northern-eastern region, Sengkang and Punggol are simply lumped together as ‘BTO’.
