Start Time: 4.30pm sharp
Duration of walk: approx 3 hrs
Meeting Place: Outram Road MRT, Ground level above Green line outside Ananas Cafe.

Added to the charm of this area lies the rich heritage, unique and one of a kind murals, chic cafes and restaurants that have sprouted up in the last couple of years.

Don’t miss this experience to come together for a walk with friends old and new. We will end the walk at Tiong Bahru MRT where there are many eateries for dinner.

12 November 2011 Monthly Walk – Botanic Garden

November 2011 Monthly Walk – Botanic Garden
Serene Low / Chris Chan in SHC main bulletin, Walking

Date: 12 November 2011 (Saturday)
Meeting Place: Botanic Garden MRT, Control Station (Circle Line, CC19)
Start Time: 4.30pm
Duration: approx 2 hours
EOs for this walk: Serene Low and ChristinaCL Chan
 
From the entrance of the Botanic Garden at Bt Timah/Cluny; we will walk towards the Eco Lake skirting along the edge to Jocab Ballas Children’s Garden.   This is a specialized garden constructed for children to learn about plants through play.  It will stimulate even adults to the wonder of plants and nature!  Let’s spend 20 minutes in this area.

Passing the Eco Lake from another side, we head towards a paved slope upwards to the Healing Garden.  This 2.5 hectare garden, took 3 years to set up, and was launched recently in October by President Tony Tan.  It is the largest in Singapore, showcasing a collection of 500 species of SE Asian medicinal plants.  The Healing Garden is designed in the shape of a human body — thematically relating to parts or systems of the body, such as "Head, Neck, Ears, Nose and Throat" and "Digestive and Related Systems".   It will be enriching to browse around and don’t be surprised to find some plants that have medicinal values are actually common plants.

After that we will continue to stroll through this green sanctuary via a different route back to the entrance towards Adam Food Centre for our dinner.

The rainy season seems to be here early.  Do bring your umbrella or rain coat, your camera, drinking bottle, sun block, a hat and walking sneakers.

This is an educational “green walk” you would not want to miss!

8 January 2011 Monthly Walk – Marina Bay Area

Date: 8 January 2011 (Saturday evening)
Meeting Place: Raffles Place MRT Control Room
Start Time: 6.30pm
Duration: about 1-2 hours
There are buses along Raffles Quay/Clifford Pier/Robinson Road
EOs for this walk: Serene Low and team members 
 

This would be the first night walk organised to start off the New Year and digest in the beauty of Marina Bay area with the city skyline fronting Raffles Place and Marina Boulevard. 
The walk will start promptly at 6.30 pm from Raffles Place MRT control room, walking through Marina Boulevard towards Marina Bay City Gallery.  From here onwards, you can take many breath-taking photo shoots of the city skyline and bay area.  We will continue the walk passing through Marina Bay Sands, crossing the Helix Bridge, towards Esplanade Waterfront, Esplanade Bridge and ending at Merlion Park.  From here, we may disperse here to have our late dinner or early supper along One Fullerton, Boat Quay or sumptuous food choices at Telok Ayer Lau Pa Sar.
Bring a water bottle, an umbrella, windbreaker or shawl in case it rains – it is still intriguing to walk in the rain and feel the raindrops on our cheeks.
We will do a roll call at the beginning of the walk and if you foresee you may disband from the group and take a longer time to feel the cool air and capture in the beauty of the night, do let me or any of the team members know beforehand so that the rest may proceed as scheduled.  The walk will take an hour or more depending on our speed.
Hope to see all of you.

Monthly walk – Bedok Reservoir, Sat 11Sep

(This posting is on behalf of Serene as she is unable to get the post up).

Date: 11 September 2010 (Saturday)

Meeting Place: Bedok Reservoir Park – The Entrance (Opposite the condo “Aquarius by the Park)

Start Time: 4.30pm

Duration: about 1-2 hours

Bus #s: 5, 21, 22, 59, 65, 66, 228, 506

EO for this walk: Serene Low 
 
The walk will begin from the Entrance to the Park, covering the whole circumference of the reservoir and part of the Bedok Park Connector.  

From the entrance, the landscape garden has many species of flowers and plants and is a popular spot for exercise and strollers with children.

Walking from the entrance towards the water venture jetty, you will see the area here abuzz with teenagers and young adults getting ready for water canoeing.  Further down the pathway, the fixtures of Forest Adventure from tight rope tracks to planks hang across the trunks of trees.

Joggers, brisk walkers and cyclists cover the tracks round the reservoir.  Walking past the Jetty Walkway and back to the Entrance would have taken us around an hour.

Here we can take a short breather before continuing to walk along the Bedok Park Connector towards Bedok Road where all the good food is.  You can see the MRT track from here and walk towards this after your dinner.

Except for the unpredictable weather, it would be an enjoyable afternoon for the walk along trees, reservoir, canal and the clear sky.

Hope to see all of you.         emoticon

September 12’09 Monthly Walk – Kembangan MRT to Bedok Jetty / Bougainvilla Garden

by Serene Low / Joyce Tan in SHC main bulletin, Walking
Date: 12 September 2009 (Saturday)
Meeting Place: Kembangan MRT control station
Start Time: 4.30pm
EOs for this walk: Serene Low and Joyce Tan
 
The walk from the MRT would be along the canal of Frankel Estate and St. Patrick Secondary School towards the overhead bridge that connects Marine Parade Estate to the East Coast Park Beach. 
 
Along the beach, you will see lots of picnickers, cyclists, joggers and roller skaters; you will feel the sea breeze, the ships lining up at the horizon and the richness of green matured trees giving us shades. Further down the walk, you will reach the activities section like the Cable Ski Park, the Skateboard Park, the anglers at the jetty.  Looking towards inland, you will see the skyline of East Coast with the many condominiums, HDB flats and the city front. 

We can walk a little further down to see the Bougainvillea garden with many colors of the flowers.  You may take notes on how you can grow the plant by transplant on sandy soil and cocoa pits; or if you want a multi color flowering specie, try marcotting the various species on the stems of an anchor plant which could produce the multi-color effects of the Bougainvillea plant. 
 
Walking back towards the ‘East Coast Lagoon Food Village’ try the famous rojak, cuttlefish kangkong, satay beehoon, sambal stingray and many others.  It can be very crowded though.
 
There is a feeder bus 401 that can take you to Bedok Interchange.  It travels thru part of Marine Parade Road, Siglap Road, New Upper Changi Road and ends at Bedok Interchange. 

Do bring along your drinking water, an umbrella (for rain or sun), repellent, sun block, camera, cap and wear comfortable walking shoes. 

See you at the walk!
