  1. Hi Christina and Azhari,
    I would like to invite some friends to join in the Walk.
    (1) Could you reconfirm that we will be doing the Sentosa Boardwalk?
    (2) Could you indicate exactly the location of the Vivocity Information Counter?
    Many thanks, Winnie

  17. Thank you to all the ECs for organising this walk. Most of us got the wrong waiting point as the exact location was not clear. Though there were some delayed, we did managed to complete the walk successfully with joy and happiness as the weather was perfectly fine after a shower at some of the places around the island.

    I have uploaded the photos on SHC Group on the Facebook at :-
    ( for sharing and viewing. Same will be also uploaded to by the Picture Manager, Susan later.

  18. Thank you, Christina and Azhari, for a super duper Sentosa Boardwalk.
    Thanks to Danny for the fabulous photos and to all friends at the Walk for your warm friendship.
    Cheers, winnie

  19. Thank you Christina and Azhari for an invigorating walk in balmy weather 🙂

    The boardwalk is short, broad and curvy;
    Brown wood spans across a silvery sea.
    Afar, cable cars silently glide,
    At four-thirty, tall buildings the sun partially hide.

    The route to the Canopy Walk,
    A nature trail to where many flock,
    Is fraught with many distractions:

    The gigantic globe of the Universal Studio,
    The imposing mermaid- tailed Leo,
    Children frolicking in the vertical jets of water,
    The air filling with their innocent laughter.

    A peahen proudly strutted away when we saw it that day.
    And two colourful macaws on the wiry wall of an aviary,
    Precariously perched, behaving like turtle doves for all to see.

    Three flights of escalator – a short respite,
    And the wax museum comes in sight.
    From here, the Canopy Walk is near –

    There! The rustic entrance into the forested domain,
    Where flora and fauna untouched, remain;
    Where birds twitter and insects creak hidden in the foliage
    Where people come to enjoy without inflicting damage.

    That day a yellow oriole was calling lustily,
    Fidgeting about on the branches of a *sycamore tree,
    Perhaps wondering at the human chatter,
    Unrecognized sounds, in his forest bower.

    A section of the Walk was closed, and farther we could not go,
    So out we trooped to the relief of the still-singing oriole .

    • May not be a sycamore

  20. Thank you Christina and Azhari for leading the group for the walk to the island. It’s a pleasure to meet acquaintance and new friends, looking forward to the 2nd part of the walk as sound out by Christina.

    To Jasmine, always a heart warming feeling reading your poetry.

    With appreciation from Goh A L

  21. Danny, Sorry I can’t copy the photos from your file which you sent to my email to my Dropbox. Dont know how else to get it done except for you to send to my mobile, as was done at the last walk.

  22. Susan,

    I think you need help for IT Specialist, Hew Lee to help you solve this issue so that in future you can do it without any difficulties. I can do that to your Whatsapp but not always so as it take up a lot of time to transfer it especially there are many photos to upload. Hope you understand.

  23. Hi Goh AL
    It was nice catching up with you. I noticed you still had your signature cap on, so there was no problem recognizing you. lol!

  24. Dear walkist,

    Thanks for all who came despite the rain before the meeting hour. The rain stopped; we welcome the lovely breeze! Am sure you aint disappointed with the scenic walk.

    My apology for the exact meeting point confusion as the online map was vague and I did not have time to go on site to verify it this time!

    Danny & SusanCH, thanks for uploading the photos.
    Jassmine, thanks for penning. You are amazing!
    Winnie, AL – thanks!

    Next 2 walks will be on 5th July and 23Aug!

    See you!

  25. Danny, good suggestion. Perhaps a face-to-face tutorial with Hewlee or Yewkwong, as suggested by someone, will help. But we are all very busy and I hope they can offer some advice on this.

    I cannot upload all 60 photos at one time to my Dropbox and had to do one by one 60 times before on my mobile to my mobile Dropbox and then send the link to the Dropbox folder and all these are eating into my mobile data! I did mention this problem to Terence and he said he will find a solution. I have meantime passed the photos to him to upload for you or maybe find someone to do it in the meantime.

  26. Susan,

    I am fine with whatever ways you do it. The photos are with you, do it if you deem fit to proceed or else SHOUT for help and hopefully some IT experts around will help you out with it. I have done my part by also sharing it at SHC Group’s Facebook which I believe most of the members should be able to view them if they have a FB account. Goodluck.

  27. Hi Danny / Susan,


    can you recall how did you send to King Seng when he was the picture manager?
    I believe it is the same software that Susan was given.
    Hope this might be helpful…. 😀

    Warm regards,

  28. As you can see, I’m still trying. This time instead of uploading 60 shots one-by-one to my Dropbox (I cannot do a copy-and-paste whole block, as some people suggest), I chose 10 best shots.

    I pulled out my own written manual to guide me, which I did successfully for the past uploads, but I dont know why the link does not look normal this time – maybe Terence can do something about it.
