The quaint hood

Text: Janice Sim


We know Simei as a quiet, humble enclave, as compared to its rowdier, flashier cousin, Tampines. And honestly, most Singaporeans might have been too quick to misjudge the peaceful neighbourhood, starting from its name. Say it out loud, and there’s a good chance you might be wrong. In our latest episode of Neighbourhood Guides, Wayne Cheong attempts to debunk the common error of the real name of Simei, along with his plug for why his homeground deserves more attention.
