Toa Payoh - a matured estate


A sketch after lunch at Toa Payoh which is a matured public housing estate. Block 127 is a popular wet market and hawker stalls that is closed in the afternoon. I used to work at HDB and we often discussed about public housing policies. You seldom find new wet markets and hawker centers in the new public housing estates after the 1990s. They are now replaced with either NTUC supermarkets or private run supermarkets and food courts.

Personally I love the design of the public housing flats in this area of Toa Payoh with its orange and white colours and art-deco features.
