Singapore’s Newest Tourist Spot – The “Welcome to Potong Pasir” Billboard featuring Chiam See Tong

I am heartened to see many Singaporeans posing for pictures every time I pass by the “Welcome to Potong Pasir” billboard featuring the smiling face of Chiam See Tong my ex-MP for 27 years.

When I came home tonight, the billboard was still there, though I am not sure how much longer it will stay there.

If you haven’t had your picture taken yet, do so quickly before the billboard disappears as a relic of history, like the erstwhile Anson constituency.

Here’s a cool time lapse video of everyday folks coming down to have their pictures taken by the billboard:

I have set up a Facebook Page called “Potong Pasir, My Kind of Town” for everyone to share and contribute your Potong Pasir billboard photos. Do join the group and help spread the love from Potong Pasir. 🙂

Directions:

The signboard is located at the entrance of Potong Pasir Ave 1, turning in from Upper Serangoon Road. If you are taking public transport, take bus 142 from Toa Payoh Interchange or alight at Potong Pasir MRT station and walk there:

  1. Assuming the welcome to Potong Pasir sign will eventually be taken down, I hope some official body will preserve it as an historical relic, either in situ within the township or in a museum. It should be archived.

  2. People of Potong Pasir should erect a statue of Chiam See Tong!!
    Come on, potong pasirians, do your bit to make history otherwise papies under the guise of that second car salesman will try to erase everything!

    LONG LIVE CHIAM SEE TONG!!!

  3. Should also take photo of the covered walkway connecting the mrt station to the estate, that was “brought to you by the Potong Pasir Town Council”. 🙂
