Local Upper Serangoon History Sites

The Simon Road Market had a wet market section that sold poultry, meat and vegetables. The dry section sold breakfast, dried sundry products and even clothes. In the evenings, hawkers sold their food at the lower section of the market.

It was famous for the muah chee, Hokkien mee, wanton mee, mee-rebus, pigs' trotters, beef kway teow and other food stalls. Some of which continue the food tradition today in other parts of Hougang.

There was also an old Chinese shrine built near some old trees in the center of the temple.
The market was demolished in 1999 as part of the MRT project. Kovan residences was built in it's place.
