Established in 1853, this beautiful Gothic-style national monument caters to worshippers in Hougang housing estates. The current building was built in 1901 and extended in 1933, and it features arched windows and doors, stained glass windows, a huge clock in the portico and a large marble statue of the Virgin Mary. Plus, it’s pretty rare to find a national monument in the neighbourhoods!

This six-storey suburban mall underwent major transformations in recent years to serve the needs of the residents here. There are currently over 130 retail outlets in the building and it is one of the few places in Singapore where you can have one of the most popular Korean fried chicken fast food joints, Nene Chicken. We also love that we can get the popular Adam Road nasi lemak (pictured) at CRAVE Nasi Lemak & Teh Tarik here.

Despite its name, this sprawling 16-hectare park actually borders Hougang, and it has two different zones for the whole family to enjoy. The Active Zone has play and fitness equipment, open lawn areas, and a plaza area, while the Passive Zone is where you can take a relaxing stroll and enjoy some tranquility. One of the highlights of this place is the scenic five-hectare pond (pictured) situated in the middle of the park.

This pet-friendly resto bistro in Punggol Park serves up an authentic Asian cuisine that is delightfully tasty. Order the Sarawak Chicken for a burst of flavour with every bite, and its Golden Chicken Wings that are simply too good to resist. Oh, we couldn’t forget their Pulau Hitam with Coconut ice cream to complete the meal. Mmm!
Check out their hilarious neon-sign on the exterior, too!
