Schools in Bukit Merah

Do you still remember the myth of Bukit Merah and the little boy who came up with the clever idea of building a row of banana tree trunks to defend the fisherman from the swordfish. In December 2011, Remember Singapore published an article about the history of Bukit Merah and Redhill and the developments in the area over the years, where the development of the housing estates along Jalan Bukit Merah, such as Henderson, Redhill Close and Lengkok Bahru has led to the establishment and amalgamation of numerous schools in the region. In the following post, we try to recollect the 21 schools which once stood in Bukit Merah, Alexandra and Henderson.

    I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address (progresiveloan@yahoo.com) and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed.. If you are in need of any kind of loan, i advise you contact Progresive Loan INC and be financially lifted Email: progresiveloan@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565
