Monthly walk: Kallang River-Bishan-AMK Park

Dear All,

Walk this afternoon: we will go ahead… see you, folks!

walk {smile, smile}

We shall continue to monitor the psi. Only if it is Above 100, will cancel

the walk… kindly check updates or WhatsApps me.

————-

The Haze hots up … psi this morning is from 94 to 96!

Tomorrow by 12noon, if it hits 100!

September’s Walk will be cancelled.

Date: Saturday, 14th Sep 2019

Time: 4.15pm sharp (Be punctual, please)

Duration: approx 3 hrs / approx 6km – easy terrain

Meeting place : Potong Pasir MRT, NorthEast Line “NE10” Exit C (outside Old Chang Kee)

EC: Azhari C

Let’s stroll upstream along the river banks to our destination!
We had visited this park a couple of times some years back and had seen portions being boarded up for major refurbishments.

An initiative by PUB was launched in 2006 to transform our waterways into beautiful streams with natural materials, waterscapes; creating spaces for the community to enjoy and increase biodiversity.

Bishan-AMK park was one of the flagship projects under this transformation programme between PUB and NParks.

The park which is located in urban central Singapore was transformed from a concrete canal to having a natural “Kallang River” flowing into and through the park, an immense project never done before.

The park now with lush greenery, grassy lawns, playgrounds, ponds, are all ideal for family picnics and gatherings; fitness enthusiasts cycle or pant along well-maintained tracks, or sit by the banks to see water ripples swirling through natural rocks, exceedingly soothing and therapeutic.

The walk leaving us tired and hungry will culminate with dinner at Teck Ghee Court Food Cente.
From here are buses available to either Bishan or AMK MRT.

Note:
There are not many or few shelters, good to have your brollies.
Water to hydrate on a hot day.
Need energy, bring along a snack.
To breeze along, lighten your load.

This is not a walk in the park ….. this is an Adventure you may not want
to miss!

Let’s get closer to nature.. C’mon on, strap on a good pair of hiking shoes!

We will trek through some overgrowth, hike Uphill, to visit site(s) that once
even had disappeared from the maps of Singapore for more than 60years;
was rediscovered, yet hidden.

Note:
1st leg of this walk — depends much on the weather.
Should there be heavy rain on Friday, we might need to “change” route
as it might be too slippery to hike uphill & down.

IF above happens then will walk only the 2nd leg…. m still thinking :)

To avoid confusion, meeting place (**) shall remain unchanged.
IF you are not sure of the location of the meeting place, ASK early.

Strongly recommend:

  1. wear long pants, covered shoes with ankle socks unless you wish to
    get bites.
  2. Hiking poles — it helps as there ain’t railings or anything to hold
  3. Brollies, caps and bottle of water to stay hydrated.

As we might end at 2pm, I will provide a small snack.

IF no rain the day before and esp on day itself, will include the Forest trail ????

It has been a couple of years since we scale up our country’s only Mount!
Time for a revisit to one of SG’s oldest park.

With nimble feet you shall rise up the Mount, to join tourist to behold the
panoramic view of our skyline, the southern part of SG and the southern
islands.
These views shall take your breath away, not so much the climb itself!

It is still very popular with tourist as there are a host of things to enjoy besides
the secondary rain forest that covers this mount.

Gentle Reminder:
1) Always wear comfortable shoes; light, loose clothing; bring a bottle of water
to stay hydrated; poncho/umbrella.
2) Optional items: cap, sun block, camera/binoculars, insect repellent.
3) Bring only the necessities, light is good.

Let’s pray for a clear day for us to enjoy stunning views from the peak!

Monthly walk: WPL Ramble

Date: Saturday, 14th April 2018

Start Time: 4.30pm SHARP

Duration of walk: approx 2.5 to 3hrs max

Meeting Place: Blk 7 Empress Road Market/Hawker Centre, off Farrer Road
(not Farrer Park).

Get to Meeting Place:
1) Nearest MRT-CircleLine CC20 Farrer Road MRT, Exit B, walk “against
traffic flow” along Farrer Rd to Blk 7, approx 6/7mins walk
OR
2) by Bus – available along both sides of Farrer Road: 48, 93, 153, 165, 174,
186, 855 and 961.

EC: ChristinA Chan.

The water PipeLine Rambles are a series of 4 treks introduced in 2008.
WPLR 2 and WPLR 3 are my favorite treks.
1st WPLR 2 was on 2nd August 2008 & then on 09March 2013, 5 years ago.

IF you have not been on this WPLR, you will not wanna miss it!
IF you have done this before, I reckon you are not able to recall and will
not want to miss it either!

This interesting trek with lush greenery all the way is not “our norm walk in the park”.
The terrain is undulating, as we trek up & down slopes, the route is mostly off the
beaten track.

The trail is exploratory and you can add some excitement if you so wish,
** get onto & walk on a large pipe OR
** slide down another OR
** test of strength…. challenge your Hand Power, heave oneself up a 4-feet
wall (if the wall is still there).

Let me assure you that the challenges are not as daunting as it seems ….

The walk shall end likely somewhere at Sixth Avenue where a variety of cuisine awaits!

Covered walking shoes that would not skid is highly recommended, but not new shoes as some parts might be sloshy.

IF you do not wish your legs to itch, come in long pants, longer socks & insects repellent; walk light with only the necessities.

Our Walk Team ECs: Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Azhari Cuttilan, Linda Chua and I, ChristinA Chan,,,,, signing off!

Monthly walk: SOUTHERN WATERFRONT

Date : 12th November 2016, Saturday

Time : 4.30pm SHARP

Duration: approx 2hours

Meeting Place: Labrador MRT Station(CC27) – Take escalator up to ground level.
(no facilities during walk, till probably 1.5hrs later).

ECs: Veronica Wong with Henry See.
Note: Henry See, one of our regular walkers, suggest to do this route, so he will
assist to co-lead.

It was 3 years ago that we had transversed along the coastline on a man-made
boardwalk. The creek is a natural oasis of mangrove, mudflats, lush and green foliage.

Linger for a moment along the coastal front, be soothed, be lulled by
the wonders of nature and revel in this scenic view of vast sea and greenery.
At the bay feast your eyes on a cluster of yachts and perhaps at sundown,
the beautiful sunset!

Note:
1) For your own safety, come in comfortable footwear, no slippers/sandals.
2) Protect oneself with sun screen, sunglasses, caps, mosquito repellant
3) Bring a disposable raincoat (though we pray for good weather)

We shall end our walk at HarbourFront.

Re: Lawrence Khan

Dear friends of Lawrence Khan,

Lawrence was called back to be with the Lord this morning. The wake will be held at the Pearl Room, Singapore Caskets (131 Lavender St, S338737) from today till Wednesday.

The service will be held on Tue night, 8pm. The hearse will depart 7.30am on Wednesday for cremation at 8.45am at Mandai Crematorium Hall 1. Ruth



Monthly walk: a Forest trail

Date: 3rd September 2016, Saturday

Time: 4.15pm SHARP

Duration: approx 2hours

Meeting Place: Marymount MRT, Passenger Service/Control Station (use the facility here, else hold till we reach the end of walk).

ECs: Alice Seah and ChristinA Chan

Note: Be punctual! from Marymount we will commute by bus to the “Start point”
and also need to be out of the forest before dark.

We will take an unpaved, gravel trail (dirt track) that we, the walk team have never embarked on getting into MacRitchie Reservoir.
Trail is shady due to the towering trees and rather thick foliage.
Terrain is easy to moderate.
Expect occasional very gradual uphill slopes and downhilling that might give your calf muscle a good stretch at the end of the walk.

One might tread on small ditches, so do not come in a new pair of shoes or your Sunday best.

Recommended:
Covered walking shoes, hand-held or battery operated fan, an umbrella instead of raincoat as can be humid in the forest of trees; insect repellent and drinking water.

We shall end our walk at the Mushroom café. Last order for dinner is 8.30pm.

the Walk Team: Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Serene Low, Alice Seah,
Azhari Cuttilan and I, ChristinA Chan.

This is an EC activity. Bring your adult friends who are over 45!

Interested to venture into the forest? Register soonest!         :D

Monthly walk: to the ROCKET, we go!

This is an EC activity. Bring your adult friends who are over 45!

Date: Saturday, 5 March 2016
Time: 4.30 pm sharp
Meeting Point: Ang Mo Kio Bus Interchange – Bus 138 Boarding queue
Duration: Approx. 2 hrs
ECs : Azhari Cuttilan and ChristinA Chan

Here is the 1st walk for the Year 2016… Be like 20 feel like 16!        :D

Good time to walk off the loaded extras during the festive seasons.

We will walk to one of the less visited places: The “Rocket” at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park.
This “futuristic space age rocket” was built and completed in Seletar in 1969 – the
same year astronauts from the Apollo 11 space flight landed on the moon.

Pleasant & easy walk to the Rocket which overlooks lush nature.
Those with stronger legs & knees can go up the Tower. The view is breathtaking.
On the way back, if enough time we will visit Springleaf Nature Park & stroll along the newly built Springleaf park connector.
Surely, will meet several of this Lunar zodiac “representative” along the way.    Hehe…

There are many Makan places around Spring Leaf area. We can have dinner there
or take the bus back to AMK.
We shall decide at the end of the walk.

Bring water bottle, caps, umbrella and camera. Do wear comfortable walking shoes.

Look forward to your early registration!        :D  :D
