Choa Chu Kang.

I only noticed its existence in the MRT map last year. Often got it confused with Yio Chu Kang, Lim Chu Kang and Phua Chu Kang. Today I went there – to the West – for a one day trip and I am back in the East now, pretty satisfied.

My friend wasn’t kidding when he said Choa Chu Kang had everything.

“Bedok has everything too!” I don’t live in Bedok. I live in Bedok Reservoir. Yes, Bedok, they have everything. Bedok Reservoir? We have… well, a reservoir.

Choa Chu Kang itself seemed amazing – the buildings weren’t blocking the sunlight out, people weren’t afraid to eat breakfast alone in McDonald’s, barely any sounds of construction or car horns, and the air was fresh.

But the journey to Choa Chu Kang was what got me. It was SO different from the East. The train here passes by terraces, condominiums, landed properties from station to station. The North-West passes by lakes, fields, the greenest greens, and flats that blend in with them. I couldn’t stop looking out the window. Although I was an East-sider, the west made me feel at home. The journey to Choa Chu Kang was long but it definitely was healing.

As I took the train, travelled from Choa Chu Kang to Jurong East, from Jurong East to Paya Lebar, I witnessed the change of vibes each district gave off. The theme of environment they each presented, distinctive facilities they each offered… all within 719.1 square kilometers. Upon Singapore’s 52nd birthday, I finally witnessed its diversity in people and in cities.

This world has its endless catastrophes which their effects spread rapidly across global hectares like virus. But the soul of this planet is good, and the young soils are moist with goodness. All in all, Earth is actually a great place to live in. We just have to find which part.
