SINGAPORE, 2019, JUNE 11 – Did you know that the name Tampines dated back all the way to 1828 in the Franklin and Jackson map? Yes, it wasn’t a recent invention nor did it undergo any name change since then. It was named after Sungei Tampenus which was named for the tampines trees that were growing there and even till today, when there are no more ironwood trees (or tempinis) growing there, we still know the place as Tampines.
