Start Time:   9am sharp. (please be on time as you will not be able to meet up with us!)
Duration:     approx 3.5hrs, excludes ‘take 5s’

Meeting Point: Marymount MRT, Exit A to ground level.
ECs:  Christina Chan, Charles Wee & Alice Seah.

Into the woods we,,,,, Tread softly, Talk quietly!

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

MacRitchie Reservoir needs no introduction.

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!

Walk Team ECs: Alice Seah, Azhari Cuttilan, Charles Wee, Jeffrey Lim,

  18. Hi Christina,

    Helen Wong having problem to log in the website, she want me to register on behalf of her & TK Pow for the treetop walk, both of them will not join the lunch.

    Thank you


  19. Hi Judy, thanks! 😀

    HelenW & TK Pow – Oh dear, leaving hungry & tired?
    No worries, they might have a little something available. 😀


  20. Hello Christina, Alice and Charles,
    Hippee !! My calendar is now cleared for me to join in the Walk. Please sign me in. I guess it is too late to order my laksa, no problem. I will bring some snacks to tie me over.
    Thank you.

  21. Hi HenryS, not sure if we have met. Will know on Sat 😀

    WinnieT: G8 you’re in! I did wonder if you will come as this is the kind of walk you will enjoy hehe

    Earlier orders have been taken in as we have paid the deposit. If there are additional “small” orders, they can accept.

    Those who have signed up after the dateline:
    If you need lunch, do confirm and pay up by Friday 11Jul before 12noon. 😀



  22. Dear participants,

    Please note that for lunch ordered and paid, there will not be any refund.
    Both parties have committed – 1 to buy & prepare lunch & the other 1 to consume! 😀 😀

    FYI, in case there is thunderstorm we are not allowed to walk in the reserve.
    Let’s pray for good, cool weather for this Saturday!

    Thank you!


  23. Hi Christina,
    Please register me for the walk. As I thought I had to remit the lunch money first before registration, I only managed to transfer $5 for the laksa last night, after 11pm. I only realised it may have been too late this morning after I read the post. No worries about lunch for me but I would like to join the walk.

  24. Hi Christina, Charles & Alice,
    Wow! 3 1/2 hrs…. very challenging, Michael and I would like to join in the Tree Top WALK. However, we will be starting the walk from Venus road car park, and would like to meet the group at the Ranger Station for toilet break and refreshment, before resuming to the Tree Top. Depending on the pace of walking, all should be at the Ranger Station at around 10.30 am. Hope the timing is right, oh ya……not having lunch at the cafeteria. Thank you. 🙂

  28. Hi Christina and team of EOs

    My knee caps are still a little inflamed from 4 hours of line dancing last Saturday at Sockie’s Kovan jam. So I am going to take the doctor’s advise of not stressing them further. I will not be joining the walk tomorrow. So sorry for the last minute back.

    Thanks for all your efforts in organising this tree top walk which I had enjoyed very much a few weeks’ ago with a smaller group of friends. You guys enjoy yourself and have my share of the laksa which has already been paid for.

    See you another time. 🙂

  29. Ah NeeLEE, noted w thx.

    Warm Rgds,

  30. Hi Christina, Alice & Charles,
