East Coast Park’s Bedok Jetty
By: HungZai Team

In this edition, we bring you to the famous Bedok Jetty, a favourite place for anglers and loving couples. It is located along the beautiful stretch of beach in East Coast Park. It was a sunny but very windy Wednesday afternoon. Apart from a couple of joggers, the beach was fairly deserted. But surprisingly though, we could still see a handful of anglers on the Bedok Jetty. They didn’t seem to mind the scorching heat at all.

We were greeted by a large tree near the entrance of the Bedok Jetty. It looks suspiciously eerie. We approached a Malay lady who was walking along the beach with her 2 sons and a daughter, and asked her if there is anything ‘special’ about the tree.

Mdm Normah, 46 years old, said in Malay, “I used to come to this place regularly when I was a teenager. Much of the place here are actually reclaimed land. But what I saw did not happen years ago but just recently…. What a frightful night it was.” Mdm Normah was reluctant to tell her story at first. She feared that it might have been a wild imagination. But eventually, we managed to persuade her…

“The whole family was fishing on the Jetty. It was a Saturday night. I wasn’t feeling well. I excused myself and decided to walk home alone (Mdm Normah stays in Marine Terrace). I was walking past that big tree when I saw something hanging and moving to and fro. I took a closer look and realised that it was young girl on a man-made swing!!!”

“I mean I have walked past that tree so many times before, day and night. And I have NEVER seen any swings!! I ran back to my family and whispered to my husband about the girl and the swing. Together, we went back to the tree but this time, we saw nothing.”

Mdm Normah saw a girl playing on a man-made swing here. (The swing is the kampung type, a wooden plank and 2 ropes tied on each end.The ropes are then tied on a strong branch.)

Believe it or not, many people drowned near this jetty before. It is believed that the structure is intruding the privacy of the Spirits of the Sea, and that misfortune will befall on those who ‘misuses’ it.

A Mr. Said, age 29 said, “I come here every evening and stayed overnight on weekends. One night, I was fishing alone. The others were quite far away. I heard and I saw the bell on my rod jingling. But my rod wasn’t moving at all and there was nothing on the bait.”

Similar tents, like the one in this picture, can be seen on weekend nights.

Another angler who declined to introduce himself chipped in, “No lah. Where got ghost here. If we are not afraid of them, they will not kacau*.” *kacau means disturb in Malay

We must admit that the waters look deep, fierce and choppy. Further interviews with some of the other anglers revealed that a teenage boy drowned in the area before. One of them, an old Mr. Ong who works as a fishmonger, claimed that he actually witnessed it.

Allegedly, there were five to seven boys. It was early in the morning, about 3 or 4am. They were making a lot of noise and the radio was quite loud. They were simply having fun, spending the night out and they were not really fishing enthusiasts.

No one knew what was the cause, but one of the boys suddenly slipped over the fence and fall into the sea. The funny thing was, he didn’t struggle or wave frantically. Instead he simply ‘disappeared’ into the waters, just like that.

Mr. Ong did not stay on to find out what happened then. He just walked away and “I go back to my shop lor.”

Alleged spot of the fateful incident.

We must admit that we did feel creepy about the jetty. But it is definitely a very good place to relief stress, to breathe in fresh air, to be with your loved ones and to enjoy a good catch.

You can jog, roller blade and even cycle on the structure’s ‘runaway’. However, to be safe, do not swim near the jetty or get under it (diving or canoeing). And do not boast or talk bad about the Unseen.

“Maybe now, they will believe.”
