Meeting Point: Yio Chu Kang MRT station (Beside POSB ATM)
Duration: Approx. 2-1/2 hrs

The hustle and buzzle of Chinese Lunar New Year will end on 5th March. After feasting on all the sumptuous goodies during this festive period, let us all get ready to burn off some excess calories by joining our next monthly nature walk.

The walk will cover the area of Lower Pierce Reservoir, the second oldest reservoir in Singapore. On the boardwalk, we will meander through the matured secondary rain forest where there are numerous rubber trees and oil palms. Apart from the flora and fauna, there are birds, wild boars, monkeys, squirrels, mini monitor lizards, spiders etc.

At the end of the walk, we will aim for the Casuarina Curry Restaurant for the famous crispy roti prata.

Note: Bring water bottle, caps, umbrella and insect repellent. Do wear comfortable walking shoes.

Our Walk Team ECs: Christina CL Chan, Charles Wee, Mary Tan, Veronica Wong,

  5. Hello ECs,

    “GONG XI FA CAI”. Please include me in for this walk as I have been away for too long last year missing so many wonderful walks. So this year, must start the ball rolling. See you all there.

    Take care and enjoy your Lunar New Year.

  6. Hi Alice & Serene

    Actually, I’ve to take a train to Bishan mrt and change to the North South train to Yio Chu Kang station before taking a bus back to Bishan Park.. Perhaps, it wd be better for me to join you all from Bishan Park..

    Charles Wee: can I meet you at Bishan mrt station and proceed to Bishan Park from there? ie if it is ok for you. Otherwise, I’ll just follow the crowd and proceed to YCK station and back to Bishan Park.. Pl let me know.. Tks

    Cheers

  7. Hi Alice
    In view of your explanation that the walk starts from Bishan Park 2, I’ve decided to join the crowd from YCK mrt station.. I’ll enjoy the longer mrt ride….

  15. Hi EOs of the walk team,

    I would like to join in the walk but prefer to meet at pierce reservoir instead. May I know where exactly is your starting point at Pierce?

    Thank you.

  16. Hi Cat,
    Start at Lower Pierce Reservoir, old Upper Thomson Road, near Ang Mo Kio Ave 1.
    We’ll be walking Bishan Ang Mo Kio Park 1 and it’ll be approx 4.30 pm when we reach the Reservoir. Thanks. See you.

  17. Hi Lilian, Yeah you’re coming, Thanks.
    I only know how to type in this comment page and don’t know how to post or update the attendees list. That is done by the other EO Serene who will be updating it tonight. Cheers

  18. Thanks Alice,

    I will be at lower pierce about 4.30pm and hope to join the group then.

    Looking forward to the walk and meeting all again.

    Cheers !

  19. Thank you to all the ECs for their efforts and hard work in organising the walk. It was indeed a enjoyable and wonderful walk since I have missed some of the walks for the past months. Photos taken during the walk can be viewed at :-https://www.facebook.com/groups/151991121591284/.

    Hope you all like the photos.

  20. Hi Alice/Serene & Walk Grp Committee,

    Kudos for organising the walk. Regrettably, Margaret and I cldn’t make it. A prior lunch appointment had precluded us partaking. Anyway, those candid photos taken by Danny Lye were as gd as we were there. Our salute to him.

    Moreover, I’ve a sentimental feeling whenever I view SHC YouTube video clip of The 2011 Bt Timah Railway ramble before its track closure. Now this had become a history album. Once again thanks to Danny Lye – Your photo shoots showed rejuvenating moments had made them possible to showcase SHC website – Thus keeping its flag unfurled. What a sense of nostalgia for all SHC Walkers. My adage:-

    ENJOY – STAY HEALTHY, KEEP WALKING
    A SHC WALK GROUP’S THEME
    GOOD – SUSTAIN A MONTHLY DREAM
    BETTER – FELLOWSHIP WITH CAMARADERIE
    BEST – CARE AND SHARE; LAUGH ALOUD
    A GOOD WALKABOUT ENRICHING MEAL AND HOME SWEET HOME

    Regards,
    Eddy Lee
