If you cruise further up the East-West line, you are bound to be greeted by a calming sea of blue at Queenstown Station. The walls of this train station reflect that of an azure sky.

If you’re feeling the hunger pangs, simply head down to IKEA Alexandra, which is a brief bus ride from Queenstown Station. Its famous Swedish meatballs drenched in creamy gravy and served with a side of lingonberry jam await you. Another one of Queenstown’s best-kept secrets is SkyVille @ Dawson, where you can glimpse an incredible panoramic view of the Little Red Dot from its rooftop garden. 

3. Commonwealth

Not exactly a fan of pink or blue? Fret not, as Commonwealth Station presents a refreshing alternative. Its charming coat of yellow is bound to lift the spirits of even the most weary traveller. Similar to many other older stations along the train line, a flat roof shelters the platform. 

Fun fact: The station was named after Commonwealth Avenue, which was constructed in 1963.

While you’re at it, why not check out Commonwealth Crescent Market and Food Centre? It is home to a myriad of tantalising food options, from duck rice to wanton noodles and even burgers. 

Fun fact: Get ready for your station-hopping adventure, as all of the above — Redhill, Queenstown and Commonwealth are located consecutively on the East-West line.

4. Sengkang

Reminiscent of those in churches and chapels, Sengkang Station’s stained glass windows are a sight to behold. Feast your eyes on its glass murals, which are ablaze with vibrant colours of the rainbow. Coined T.R.A.N.S.I.T.I.O.N.S., this artwork is part of the Art in Transit initiative. This programme was launched with the goal of integrating artworks created by Singapore’s notable artists into the MRT network in mind.

This artwork, which comprises two distinctive glass murals, celebrates the history of Sengkang and how far it has come. The mural of Old Sengkang depicts scenes from days of yore, giving us some insight into how kampong life was like. Meanwhile, the black-and-white mural of New Sengkang illustrates the skyscrapers which are presently part of the district’s landscape. 

5. Bayfront

Bayfront Station’s brightly lit underground linkway boasts of floor-to-ceiling mirrors, where you can gaze at your reflection at every turn. 

It’s also home to this masterpiece, which showcases Singaporeans’ creativity and imaginations. This mural features a collage of ships drawn by Singaporeans aged from 7 to 12. Titled When the Ship Comes in, this is one of the Art in Transit initiative’s art pieces. It commemorates our rich history as a port of call and signifies hopes for a brighter future.

Perhaps its allure lies in it being not far off from fun-filled attractions such as Gardens by the Bay and Art Science Museum, too.

More often than not, we are too caught up in commuting to our next work location, or glued to the flickering screens of our smartphones that we forget to notice what’s around us. This rings true for most, especially in this bustling metropolitan city. Nevertheless, if 9am to 6pm is meant for immersing in the digital realm, the rest of the time is meant to be lived for real-life quality content.

That said, the next time you happen to pass by these MRT stations, pause for a moment to take in their beauty before your eyes.
