So what's this? It's basically the map of Singapore's Mass Rapid Transport (MRT) where each station has a mascot representing the region. Their personality, jobs and behaviour are all centered around the facilities near the station. Though not 100% accurate, I hope you have fun reading the description. Feel free to share/add on in the comments.
A few more stations have yet to be represented on the map (:

Jalan Besar (?)
Bedok Town Park
Tuas (as one persona)
Marina South Pier
East West Line
Fun-loving Pasir Ris houses Downtown East which has attractions like Wild Wild Wet, E!Hub and the old Escape Theme Park. However, previous slashing cases there revealed that Pasir Ris has a reckless side. He is obsessed with cycling; his station is decked with numerous bicycles. His name refers to “sand”, hence his mall (and pet Starfish) is called “White Sands”. His residents also enjoy the mangrove-rich Pasir Ris Park. Pasir Ris often invites Tampines and Simei for BBQs and stay overs at his chalets. Together, the friends are called the 'Easties'.
Tampines, the pleasant girl, has a huge plot of land that was formerly a fishing village (the fish farms relocated to Pasir Ris). Nicknamed 'Orchard’s little sister', she loves shopping and houses 3 huge malls: Tampines Mall, Century Square, and Tampines 1. They are found in the “Tampines Regional Centre”, the first and most established of its kind. Tampines was named after the nearly extinct “Tampinis Tree” which appears at the back of Singapore’s $5 note.
Named after 'four beauties' of ancient Chinese folklore, Simei dons a Chinese qipao. She is demure and caring as she visit the sick in Changi General Hospital. Simei used to hold a lot of pet shops in East Point, and has a beige dog. Among the Easties, Simei is the quietest as she does not fancy large attractions.

Her hobby stems from the nearby facilities namely: Tanah Merah Country Club, National Service Resort and Country Club, Laguna National Gold and Country Club and Singapore Armed Forces Yatch Club. Tanah Merah means “Red soil” in malay; she used to be a hilly area with 2 cliffs (Tanah Merah Besar and Tanah Merah Kechil). She used to be a fishing village. Soil from her hills was used to create the East Coast. Tanah Merah is also connected to Bintan, Indonesia though a ferry terminal.
Expo is a busy, hardworking product promoter. He has 6 huge halls that are frequently used for events such at the annual IT fair or book/anime conventions. Expo is a close business partner with Changi Airport, as both parties rely on tourists. Although, he sometimes persuades Changi Airport to buy worthless things. Apart from Changi Airport and people who visit his conventions, Expo does not have much relationship with the others.
Male, unknown, Pilot
From an Ex-POW (Changi Prison), Changi Airport became an aspiring pilot. He loves telling ghost stories in his area and has a ghost buddy with a mallet that no one else can see. Time in prison had caused him to develop OCD and tighten securities in fear of terrorism. He also keeps his toilets exceptionally clean (and he forces Expo to help him). Now, Changi Airport basks in international fame and 18oC air-condition. Outside, his area consists of old, low-rise buildings, narrow roads and large palm trees.
Male, Social Worker
A warm-hearted person, Bedok cares for the last fortunate in Lions for the Elders. His name was derived from Bedoh, which in Malay means 'drums used in mosques for prayers or to sound alarms'.

Eunos has some interest in the industrial sector, and has made deals to buy cars from Ubi, the car dealer.
Paya Lebar delivers letters to people and his major landmark is the spaceship-like building called Singpost, that doubles as a shopping centre. Much of his silent, awkward behaviour stems from his recent infrastructural changes causing parallel roads to be curved when the Circle Line was built. He does not have many friends apart from a pig from one of the demolished pig farms. Paya Lebar also works at the Paya Lebar Air Base with the boisterous Dakota.
Aljunied, infamously known as “Geylang” (an old-time red light district), is a delinquent and bully who tells others “O$P$”. He would pester his neighbours by lying around on the floor in their way. Aljunied dislikes his modern friends, choosing to stick to the old ways. However, his great food makes up for the flaws.
Male, Karang Guni

Previously home to his fellow Sepoys (thus explaining his headgear), Tanjong Pagar loves history. However, the loss of Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) Railway had left him heart-broken. Tanjong pagar houses the Tanjong Pagar Plaza, MAS building, CPF building, and many residential houses with his characteristic spiral staircases. Tanjong Pagar’s name is malay for “Cape of stakes” as he previously set up Kelongs (fishing traps) along his shores. This was from the Malay legend of Hang Nadim who advised the Sri Maharajah to built a barricade of banana stems to trap swordfishes.
