Plumber Pasir Panjang
Pasir Panjang is an area situated at the southern a part of Queenstown in Singapore. Kent Ridge Park is a topographical feature that runs adjacent to Pasir Panjang.
The name Pasir Panjang seems as “Passir Panjang” in 1851. The Malay word pasir panjang virtually suggests that “long sand”, a relation to the long sandy beach that stretched along the coast in this area.
Pasir Panjang is known as hong heng sua in Hokkien, which means “Hong Heng’s plantation”.
Pasir Panjang Road, which once hugged the Coastline, was set down as far as the Jurong River by John Turnbull Thomson by 1850. Thomson was Government Surveyor of Singapore from 1841 to 1853.
