Serangoon central old bus interchange/ Wonderful Cakes at Naomi's Kitchen - Sweet Bunny

Whenever I am in Serangoon Central there is always a sense of nostalgia, perhaps being one of my haunts during my secondary school days contributes the sentiments. The red brick structure of the old Serangoon bus interchange will forever be iconic to me.

Serangoon Central, the Early 2000s my daily routine teen life- As a school kid I used to wait at the bus interchange for my bus home, it was always packed with commuters at times I would bump into a classmate’s kid brother and who would shout my name across the interchange to check if I have seen his sister, kind of embarrassing to have the whole bus interchange know your name. Before the shopping mall, NEX  and the North- East Line MRT came along, there was not much to do in the area, MacDonald was the only fast food chain that and was popular with the teens. Besides the community centre, there was not many facilities or services available in this sleepy area. At times, I would walk a classmate home, because her flat was on the way to the bus interchange. Her mum would wave from the kitchen window when I greeted her, auntie used to call me the girl who walks Letchumi home, she is a very nice lady who was always very warm and kind whenever I hang out at my classmate’s home to study.
