Feel the fresh breeze through your hair as you whizz through the park connector, which forms the gateway to the Eastern Coastal Loop. The path leads you towards the Tampines and Bedok Park Connectors if you want to pay these bigger ’hoods a visit. Make a pitstop at East Coast Park or Telok Kurau Park to rent a bicycle or rollerblades if you don’t have your own set of wheels.
It's been said that Siglap is a hotspot for pontianak sightings. Legend has it that its name is derived from the Malay phrase ‘si gelap’ – which means ‘the dark one’ – given to it by a Sumatran prince who arrived during an eclipse. It was also a massacre site during the Japanese Occupation. But beyond its morbid past, this quaint and tranquil ’hood is home to a plethora of restaurants, cafés and pubs where Easties rock up for afternoon brunch, late-night supper or a yoga sesh without the crazy crowd.
