Loving My Spot ~ Punggol

Last time Punggol used to be called "  Ponggol " { means hurling sticks at the branches of fruit trees to bring them down to the ground in malay }  & There used to be lots of farmhouse, villiagers, Plantation before this place was developed into Punggol 21 Which is Punggol New Town. & Guess what.. There used to be a " Zoo " here in punggol.. Even before Singapore Zoo is build...
 The spelling of Ponggol is still be used in Ponggol Seventeenth Avenue and Ponggol Twenty-Fourth Avenue.

We moved here On 12 January 2011.. Is our very first home. When We first moved to Punggol.. I didn't know this place well & felt lonely.. But after exploring I felt that we had made the right choice for moving here.. I love the natural surrounding us, There is alot of park, Playground, Chill out places, Food & many more.. I have yet to explore all the places in punggol.. But i will share with u where i have been.. & The places that I love..

This is one of Our fav dine in place.. Which located in Ponggol Seventeenth Ave.. At the moment there is no Lrt station or bus stop that stop at this place.. But there is a free shuttle bus which pick u up at Sengkang mrt station directly to go into this place... There is a super big but quiet arcade outside Sakura .. & There is " Ponggol Seafood " Which i have yet to give it a try... But they do catering for buffet as well... Along the stretch of shops.. There is Pubs to chill out, 7 ~ 11 & a childcare centre located within this club...

Did some researched & Know that " during World War 2 there is japanese military massacred 400 hundreds chinese civilians at Punggol Point"  Location is at Punggol beach " World War 2 " site.. Which is located at the very end of punggol.. .. & Now that location has been  marked as a heritage site in Punggol.

This is the only Wet market in Punggol.. Is located at the basement of " Punggol Plaza "  There is a CC beside it which Benson attend his playgroup every morning...

Qing Ji is located in the far end next to " Golfers @ Punggol ,60 Punggol East, s828825  " ... This place is quite cooling & quiet ( Might be because not many people know this place exist , I guess ) .. which is what I like because i don't really love to Q very long for food... Food rating is 8/10... A little salty.. But afterall.. it tasted super yum!

I think many people should know this place ... Yes! Is " My waterway @ Punggol "  Is very near to where I live... When I just moved in.. This park is still under construction Now is done! I love the natural surrounding to where I live.. If u come punggol often or stay around here... u will realize that there is lots of parks around... =) There is a waterplay & sand play located inside this park...

Hiya! Thanks for this insightful tour of Punggol, and for being part of my Love Party! You know what? I've only been to the Punggol Bus Interchange, and Punggol 17th Avenue (of all places! ) because a friend lives there. HAHA. I didn't even know there were so many seafood options (though I've heard of them) and eeks! The Jap massacre site sounds horrifying! However, the waterway looks beautiful!
