Bedok is the Malay name for the drum that was used in the pre-loudspeaker days to call worshippers to pray at the mosque. At Jalan Sempadan, on the outskirts of Bedok there is a cemetery where Rhio and Bornean relatives who settled in the district in the pre-Rafflesian days are buried. Siglap, the southern part of Bedok was a vast coconut plantation known as the Siglap Estate that stretched from the beach to Changi Road and narrow Siglap Road wound through it from Upper East Coast Road.
