BEYOND THE PHYSICAL
Toa Payoh today is a bustling town known for its central location and good food that bring Singaporeans on deliberate visits just to satisfy their appetites. As one of the oldest matured housing estates in the city, Toa Payoh is home to a wide demographic of Singaporeans, from the elderly relocated from their original kampong vernacular houses, to the newer generations won over by its wellstructured amenities. Through the decades of change, the idea of Toa Payoh as a localised community has become one broadly defined, with one’s affinity to the neighbourhood going beyond physical boundaries
It may no longer be the same kampong times but younger generations still find community spirit in serendipitous spaces. Tan Keng Yang, 24, grew up at Balestier Road but spent much of his childhood in Toa Payoh. “I don’t ‘live’ in Toa Payoh, but no matter where I go, I end up there,” He says. “It has everything and almost all the buses from my house area wind up at Toa Payoh Central anyway.” Certain spaces in the neighbourhood also hold special memories for him. Pointing at a mid-building open space at Block 79D in Toa Payoh central, Keng Yang recounted the story of how he had discovered this area with his friends.
