Monthly Walk Sat 12 Dec Dairy Farm Nature Park

Date: 12 December 2009 (Saturday)
Meeting Place: Bukit Batok MRT nearby control station by 4.00pm sharp
Duration:  about 2 hours
For those who are driving, take the PIE and turn into the BKE.  Exit at Dairy Farm Road and travel for about 200m before turning left into Car Park A next to Salvation Army.    Be there at 4.30pm to join group who will be arriving by bus from Bukit Batok Central.

From Dairy Farm to Nature Park
The Dairy Farm Nature Park officially opened on 5 September 2009 has two sections.  One trail leads to the Wallace Education Centre and the other goes to the Singapore Quarry.  For this walk, we are taking the nature trail leading to the Wallace Education Centre.   It is the old Dairy Farm Road and fairly easy.
Formerly a cowshed, the building that is now the Wallace Education Centre also serves as a exhibition and learning facility for nature enthusiasts to meet and share their knowledge with others. The building is a nice example of architectural conservation where visitors can learn about the changing landscapes of Dairy Farm and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve through various exhibits.

Bring drinking water, an umbrella (for rain or sun), mosquito repellent, camera, cap and wear comfortable walking shoes.
Walk ends back at Car Park A and for those who wish to, can adjourn for dinner at the Koufu Food Court in West Mall. There are stalls serving fried hokkien mee, pasta, Japanese cuisine, Indian food, vegetarian, yong tow foo mee, herbal soup, duck rice kway chap, fish soup, Korean food, roasted delight, tim sum, fresh fruits, juices, dessert and beverages.
See you at the walk!
Other Walk Team members:  ChristinaCL Chan, Charles Wee, Jeffrey Lim, Joyce Tan, Serene Low, Charles Chua and Andrew Thio.

  4. Hello MaryTan

    Having a very busy weekend. Friday 11th chitchat at B. cafe.
    Sunday is a big day for me. Sunday 6th, gathering at Robert Quek’s home for the Rich Awakening Group. So have to give this walk a miss again. Aiyoh! second miss lah, can get a miss-tress by the third miss hahaha! Walkers all, enjoy yourself.


  5. Sorry MaryT, Sunday 13th is a big day for my family. Celebrating my mother’s 94th birthday bash.(my families’ Empress Dowager) not Sunday 6th.

    If Robert Quek reached 90 years and I am still around, I will celebrate a grand one for him too. He is 72 years old now. I am 64 now. We shall count our blessings to live a healthy, happy, simple balanced life.

  6. Caroline, noted you are coming.

    Patrick, very best wishes to your mum on her 94th birthday. If you are not having any activity on 12th, do come and join us.
