STREET TALK AN INSIDER’S GUIDE TO LIFE IN THEIR ’HOOD
Where do you live? Haig Road.
Who is the road named after? My good friend Google assures me it is named after Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig, 1st Earl of Bemersyde. Exact words you tell a taxi driver to get home? “Haig Road. Take the CTE to the PIE, down the KPE to the ECP, please.” What’s the name of your neighbourhood? Tanjong Katong, or Joo Chiat. Closest MRT station? We are equidistant to Dakota and Paya Lebar. My teenagers tell me that Paya Lebar is better … because it has a Burger King. How long have you lived here? Nearly two years. Why here? Because we love the East Coast, and the house is within walking distance of the Green Line (to hubby’s work) and the Yellow Line (to the kids’ school). I rented the house off Property Guruwithout even seeing it in person. It was a delight to discover that we had accidentally stumbled on to the grooviest neighbourhood on the island.
