Never despair, fellow Westies

Though the East-siders will always be rubbing East Coast Park and better food in your face, proximity to the Singapore Zoo & tranquil farms are consolation prizes to our ulu abodes.

If not, zip on over to the rest of Singapore on these express buses.

You may even be able to catch a wink on your morning or evening commutes if you snag a seat!
