OUR HISTORY

In the past, Toa Payoh was actually a prominent town in Singapore.

The word “Payoh” was developed from the Malayan word “paya” which stands

for swampland. Toa Payoh is also similar to the Chinese meaning of Paya

Lebar, which meant “huge swamp land”. Toa Payoh was a large-scale and

infamous homesteader region. Back in the late 1960s, Toa Payoh was well

known to be “the Chicago of Singapore” for its remarkable crime rate.

Life back then, was simple and easy but lack of safety, security and

hygienic. Fights will normally break out because of the jostle in the

queues for water, which was a daily chore for the people.Many homesteaders were involved in cultivation and fostering work.

Others were like hawkers stall owner, factory employees, technicians or

domestic helpers. The homesteader began relocating out in 1962 as an

outcome of increasing payment prices and another other useful

inducements granted by the Government. Clearance process was inclined to

start off and the renovation started in early 1964.
