Meeting Place: Blk 7 Empress Road Market/Hawker Centre, off Farrer Road

OR
2) by Bus – available along both sides of Farrer Road: 48, 93, 153, 165, 174,

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!

Do bear with me should we wander off course as I have no time to recce the entire trail,
COME! LET’S RAMBLE TOGETHER!           😀

Meeting Place: Labrador MRT Station(CC27) – Take escalator up to ground level.

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)

Monthly walk: a Forest trail

Date: 3rd September 2016, Saturday

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.

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.

Monthly walk: 11October – Fort Canning Park

Date : Saturday, 11 October 2014
Time : 4.00 pm
Nearest MRT : Dhoby Ghaut station
Meeting Place: Park Mall, main entrance
Duration: 2 hrs
ECs : Alice Seah and Judy Lim

This month we will be walking in Fort Canning Park. Before November 1981
it was named Fort Canning Hill or “Forbidden Hill” in Malay. Since the
14th century many Singapore rulers and colonial masters have lived here,
including Sir Stamford Raffles. It was an important military base during
World War II.

Fort Canning Park is undulating and about 60 metres high. Remnants and
relics of bygone eras are around. There’s a Spice Garden, previously
Singapore’s first experimental and botanic garden. The tranquil ambience
together with diverse flora and fauna makes the walk interesting. You will
appreciate the beautiful sculptures completed by various artists.
Many cultural and recreational activities are held here.

Note: Bring water, caps, umbrella and wear comfortable walking shoes.

MacRitchie Loop……. round the entire reservoir! including the TreeTop
Walk…. hooray!

MacRitchie Reservoir needs no introduction.

Briefly:
It was opened in 1967 and through the years, trails were launched,
boardwalks were built.  Several trails are named after tree species
commonly found along the trails eg., Prunus, Petai, Chemperai,
Jering and Petaling.

It is still a popular recreational area, esp in the mornings
during weekends or public holidays, many different groups of walkers,
hikers, families young and old are found along the various trails.

TreeTop Walk** – a 250m long freestanding suspension bridge between
the 2 highest points in this Central Catchment Nature Reserve
(MacRitchie), still the 1st of its kind in Singapore.

Be delighted with panoramic views, green green grass, giant trees,
close encounters with thousand species of flowering plants,
keep your eyes opened in case you chance upon native creatures,
insects, birds…..white-bellied Fish Eagles soaring above.

**TreeTop Walk:  those who decides not to go across this, our
Ms AliceS will lead you through another route.

Please bring along a snack or fruit for the extra “energy boost”!

This walk will end past norm lunch hour ie., we will have a late lunch.
Therefore, will help to reserve lunch for you at the Cafeteria.
There are varieties but servings are limited.

If you want lunch:
please place order(indicate Item No.), make payment upon registration.
It seems silly to collect such a small amount, however, Cafeteria requires a
deposit due to bad experiences, if it is a no show of 1 or 2 pax/orders, I can
pay for it but if more, will not be possible as I will not be needing additional
ordered lunch at all.

To simplify, only 3 choices:
1)  Laksa  (yummy good!)    … 4.50
2)  Mushroom Chicken Noodle … 4.50
3)  Chicken Chop Rice         … 5.50

Remit payment to POSB Savings Account No.  542-107-561.

Last order for lunch: Monday 07.07.2014!

Additional lunch orders: extended to Friday 11Jul, 12noon!

Meeting Place:  Ang Mo Kio MRT Station – Exit to ground level.
Duration:  2 ½ hrs

In the Ang Mo Kio garden much of the original vegetation and terrain of a secondary

dragon flies can be spotted. There are also fruit trees and food plants, a reminder
of the past agricultural activities.

The Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park is filled with colourful shrubs, lush greenery, ponds,

MonthlyWalk: 10th May, Off the Beaten Walk venture

(This trip also in response to the request of “Let’s venture out of Singapore, perhaps to Johor?!”)

There have been much interest going to Pengerang especially since In late 2011 news about the Malaysian government’s plans to build petrochemical projects there and,
in Feb 2014, a Feng  Shui expert has selected Pengerang for its “good Feng Shui” and to which graves from the new Chinese gravesite in Bukit Gelugor, Johor will be relocated here!

Before this wonderful place is no more…. become less idyllic, with an increase in traffic both human and vehicles – lorries …
COME, join us  in this “raw” venture ie., sans prior recce, so somewhat disorganized…  bear with us ….   😀   😀

On the way one will enjoy lovely scenery of uncut grasses waving on either sides (sign of ‘welcome’  hehe)  coconuts trees swaying  with the wind;  the lovely kampong charm; the peaceful surrounding devoid of tall buildings! The lack of urban noises, if one craved  for open spaces

Sungai Rengit the  town in Pengerang located south-eastern tip of Johor is dotted with a dozen seafood  restaurants, all with local Spiny Lobsters as their main draw!

The favourable currency exchange rates for Singapore dollar meant we will eat  like ‘royalty’ there.

Pengerang was also the site of a major WW2-era British coastal battery — Malayan WWII history, where the British troops  readied their defences in preparation for a Japanese attack via Singapore!

Unlike other groups, I prefer to go with the bumboat instead of coach!      😀    😀
