Four students from the Nanyang Technological University's Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information have produced a final-year project on Potong Pasir and Singapore’s longest-serving opposition MP of that constituency, Chiam See Tong.

Their project, titled My Kind of Town, consists of a website with a multimedia map that can be navigated across various times of the day and hosts video interviews with Potong Pasir residents, with glowing tributes paid to Chiam and the good old nostalgic times of the constituency that was once an opposition stronghold.

The site's About page reads:

"The story of Potong Pasir and the career of Mr Chiam See Tong cannot be separated. Mr Chiam has created a bond with the residents of Potong Pasir through his long years of service, shaping the estate into the one we know today."

The four students are Cara Chiang, Wong Kar Weng, Basil Edward Teo and Sulaiman Daud.
