If you look up literature about the area around this station, they might say the place was the abode of the Teochew Chinese dialect community. But you should know that this was in the past. Today one of the things that fascinated Mel as he walked around the neighbourhood was not the dominance of private homes but nurseries and florists.
In fact, there was a steady stream of folks driving or walking to these establishments to browse and make purchase in that early Sunday morning Mel was there for his walk. You might find these nurseries rather interesting too!
