About this event

The history, culture and heritage at Springleaf and Nee Soon Village is not very well chronicled. Most people don’t take the North too seriously. But things are changing. The new Springleaf MRT has added some life to this once sleepy laid-back hamlet. Eateries are springing up by the dozens.

As new eateries rush in to capitalize on the new found fortune, the older shops are rising up to the challenge. Ngee Fou Ampang Yong Tau Foo has been here for decades. I know them well. They were and still are my neighbors. The landed real estate here were a pittance in the 1970s. They couldn’t sell. Nobody believed the North will prevail. It has been almost 50 years since. The landed homes at Springleaf are now suddenly worth a fortune. How the tide has changed!

I was born here almost 68 years ago. I was born here, raised here, and I am still here. I don’t mean to boast, but I know Nee Soon Village (and Springleaf Gardens) at the back of my fingers. I invite you to join me for a rustic walk through an old hometown - full of old-world charm.

We meet at Springleaf MRT at 9am on the 21st August 2022 (SUNDAY). This tour will end at the same Springleaf MRT, about 11.30am – just before the lunch crowds arrive.

Note:

  • We do the world wide practice of tipping at the end of the tour.
  • We also reserve the right to accept or reject habitual late cancellations and No Shows.
