Motorists in the East who are in search of an Esso petrol kiosk may visit the following Esso outlets in the area:

  • Bedok North
  • Bedok South
  • Pasir Ris
  • Tampines Ave 9
  • Upper Changi Road North

Featured in ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’ sitcom

The Esso petrol kiosk is famous for a myriad of reasons.

For starters, it’s conveniently located near the Tampines Ave 7 TPE exit, so motorists making their way into the estate would inevitably catch a glimpse of the petrol kiosk and its tiger statue.

Another reason could likely be its appearance in the popular Chinese sitcom ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’ — in which several characters work at said petrol station.

This particular Esso is also located just across the iconic red HDB blocks similarly featured in the 90s sitcom.
