Join us in this last walk of 2013…  to a place filled with war history
nuggets and beauty! preserved, retained, yet seamlessly merged
with modern ammenities to provide a haven for all to enjoy.

Let the sounds of music from the sea;
the songs from a variety of feathered species;
the cool of sea breeze; the flutter of wings;
the beauty of a variety of blooms;
bring to you, a sense of calm and rest!

We will transverse along the coastline from man-made boardwalk into the
forest, filled with historical relics – an open-air museum that showcased
underground bunkers and gun batteries from WW II.

The surrounding area projects peace and solitude that brings a sense of
relief and thankfulness that the guns had ceased fire long ago and battles
are no longer fought!        {sigh}

The sight of artists capturing the gorgeous views over the sea;
fishermen preparing their fishing baits or trying their luck,
families and friends enjoying, yet another natural oasis.

With a panoramic view, it is indeed “THE place to watch sunset!”

Let us 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…

Dine & Home Sweet Home will be in the Nature Reserve itself – Eco Gourmet Cafe comes highly recommended OR next to Labrador MRT (CC27) Alexandra Retail Centre(ARC) with a selection of Japanese/Chinese restaurants; Komala’s, cafes, etc

1)  For your own safety, come in comfortable footwear, no slippers/sandals.
2)  Protect oneself with sun screen, sunglasses, caps, mosquito repellant
3)  Besides umbrella, bring a disposable raincoat (though we pray for good weather)
4)  Hydrate with a bottle of drinking water.
5)  **In nature reserves — leave nothing behind and take nothing away
except memories through your lenses.

  11. Saturday morning 08Nov, I was awaken by the rain… it rained and rained, not heavy but enough to cause anyone to want to stay indoors…then, I recalled the past days there was no rain at least in the SW! I said a little pray! It stopped! Shortly after, it started to pitter patter again! It continued so for a couple of hours. As I was leaving my home, my neighbor who was standing at her door said “it is raining!”… oh yea, but it will stop soon….” I replied with a smile. It did! HE is so good!
    Everyone who had registered before 8Nov 4:09 came! Thank you!
    I did not log in again… for those who registered after 4.10 or later… thanks for coming too!
