Duration: approx. 2.25 hours. Distance 6 km
Meeting Place: Yishun Mrt exit C
Time : 4.30pm SHARP

This is a nice and easy route for an evening walk and it is also the last SHC Monthly Walk for 2019.
We commence our walk from Yishun Mrt , walk towards the Yishun park besides the lake at KTP hospital. Emerging from the park, a short distance away, besides Villa Francis Home, we walk through a green park corridor that links us to Yishun Ave 4 . This will take us to the perimeter of Orchid Country Club. From there on we follow the PCN that borders the fringes of Lower Seletar Reservoir and walk towards an underpass below Lentor Avenue, crosses it and stroll along a canal till we reach Springleaf Nature Park.
For this walk, we will enjoy much greenery and waterways in an unspoilt natural environment. If we are lucky enough we may even sight an eagle, a blue tail bee eater or a raptor amidst the tranquility of the surrounding tall trees.
The Walk ends at the junction of Sembawang/Mandai Road. Located nearby are nice eateries for our dinner & refreshments. From there, buses to many convenient destinations are easily available .

Wear comfortable footwear, no slippers/sandals.
Protect oneself with sun screen, sunglasses, caps. And bring along an Umbrella.

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.

Walk Team: Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Azhari Cuttilan, Linda Chua and ChristinA Chan.

Duration: approx 2.5hrs

ECs: Veronica Wong & Mary Tan

Discover the rustic charms of Coney Island or Pulau Serangoon, home to a wide variety of habitats, including coastal forests, grasslands, mangroves, and casuarina woodlands. In keeping with the ideal of environmental sustainability, the signs, seats and even the boardwalk on the island are made from Casuarina timber from uprooted trees. Coney Island Park still feels like a world away from urbanity.

We will walk along the Promenades paved areas to enjoy the views of passing ships and Johor’s shoreline. Take photo at the famous Coney Island gate. Stroll along the earth paths, exploring the forest and mangrove habitats. Opportunities to observe and try spotting wildlife or listen to the chirping of birds. If you encounter any animals, keep a safe distance from them, do avoid approaching them. Do not feed the monkeys, or hold any plastic bag and water bottle when visiting the park. We move on to the beach areas which provide a nice seaside break after sweating out on walking.

Walk will end back at the Western Entrance. For those who wish to have dinner, there are eateries at the nearby Punggol Settlement.

Tips to prepare for a safe and enjoyable walk ………………..
Dress comfortably, advisable to wear long pants and covered walking shoes; bring drinking water to stay hydrated; wear a hat, put on sunglasses and apply sunscreen to shield yourself from the sun; apply insect repellent if you are prone to insect bites; bring umbrella or raincoat.

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.

Sexy and Hot Salsa

There is no doubt Salsa is one of the most rewarding dances you can learn. So what is it? It is a brilliant, hot and spicy dance that will inspire Latin rhythms in everyone.

The steps are super-easy to pick up. So the time it takes you to learn your first few steps and be able to dance Salsa is far, far shorter than you might think.

It’s probably the easiest and quickest dance to pick up.

That makes it the perfect dance for complete beginners.

It’s a great dance that’ll make you smile and give you confidence, all set to a hot Latin beat.

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!

The Ulu Pandan Park Connector was completed in Oct/Nov 2009. We have had
walk different parts of this connector in 2007 and 2010.

Let’s look forward to walk a longer stretch (about 8km), if possible.

The walkway is well paved and hope to cross a bridge which was a portion of the defunct Jurong Railway which was closed in the 1990s.

As the trail runs besides a canal that flows into Sungei Pandan; among the trees and shrubs look out for butterflies flitting among the greenery; colorful birds eg., the magnificent Purple Neck Heron, Kingfishers, Red-Capped Woodpeckers or the White Egret.

Join us to enjoy an afternoon at “one of the most beautiful nature spots in Singapore.”

We will trek through a lesser known trail.
The early part of this forest trail is easy; remember to look around to enjoy the rich
flora and fauna in the forest.
Then, we will ascend to the TOP for a more scenic view!

Do remain quiet     :D    as you may spot an occasional wildlife.

Toilet facilities: available only at entrance/Visitor’s centre.

Do wear COVERED, comfortable walking shoes.
Bring bottle of water to keep hydrated, caps, umbrellas, insect repellant and cameras.

What should you do when approached by monkeys?
When approached by the monkeys, you should look down and walk at least 1.5 metres away from them. Do not look into their eyes or bare your teeth as these are signs of aggression and challenge.
Keep food and snacks in haversacks and not in plastic bags. Do NOT eat/drink in the presence of monkeys.
