Finally reopening with a brand new grocery shopping experience and food enclave, Isetan Scotts Supermarket has revamped with modern, minimalist interiors, a permanent event stage showcasing authentic Japanese products and a "food theatre" section.
Shoppers can dine in at Japanese eateries like WA-Dining, which serves bentos with ingredients such as seafood from Hokkaido and wagyu beef from Kagoshima; Dashi Bar, an udon and soba diner known for its Hyoshiro dashi soup stock and Kaku-Uchi Sake Bar, a casual watering hole specializing in premium sake brands from various Japan prefectures.
Better known as the Hamptons, the Long Island towns of Southampton and East Hampton in New York are the playgrounds of America’s rich and famous. Palatial summer homes are the order of the day in a region where you’ll find some of the country’s most expensive zip codes. It's basically the opposite of everything you’d associate with Bedok. According to a new heritage trail, however, the humble corner of eastern Singapore bore an uncanny resemblance to the Hamptons in the early 20th century.
Launched by the National Heritage Board (NHB) as part of the ongoing Singapore HeritageFest, the Bedok Heritage Trail will transport you back in time to the era before the development of the East Coast area; a time when the colony’s wealthiest inhabitants resided in waterfront bungalows alongside fishing villages. With 10 markers spread along a 15km route, you’ll discover Bedok’s long history, from its kampung beginning to its key role in the East Coast Reclamation Scheme.
From pirates to beach parties, fishing villages to coconut plantations, the story of the eastern coast of Singapore shares many common threads with coastal settlements across the world. At the same time, the intertwined histories of Bedok, Siglap, Tanah Merah and the East Coast are unique in many ways.
From the ancient days when Orang Laut fleets looked upon the red cliffs of Tanah Merah as a navigational guide, through the era of colonisation, all the way to Singapore's independence and present day, the area’s transformative journey is told through the branching stories of Bedok and the East Coast in this Bedok Heritage Trail.
