Dry weather…

The weather is so dry in Singapore. It has been in this weather since early January. First time Singapore experiences this weather.

Feels like autumn season. How I wish. Unfortunately not.  I can feel my skin is drying such as face and hands.

Cycling – Northern Explorer Park Connector Loop – 30km

It was a wonderful day for cycling though the sun was bright and weather is hot.  Adventure in the forest and seeing the nature was definitely made my day satisfying.

We started our first Park Connector Network – Northern Explore Loop where we decided to head to the Singapore Zoo from the Causeway Point and all the way to Lower Seletar Reservoir Park.  Then back to the Khartib, Yishun, Admiralty and final to Causeway Point.

We started at 9:10am….

Northern Explorer Loop (Park Connector Network) – Cycling

Woodlands PC was a nice trail indeed.. it came from a highway from woodlands and narrow slopes all way up hill and downhill.  The slope just beside the Singapore Sports School.  We felt refreshing morning wind breeze at the tip of the hill.

Which way?

The Ulu Sembawang PC was an interesting path, I like trails that have many trees surrounding but not too difficult to ride though. Saw some dogs lying around at the side walk……

Nice… I like it..

At the end of the Ulu Sembawang PC, we arrived the highway of Mandai Road.  Often seen views of reservoir…

Upper Seletar Reservoir

Cycling with our little bikes were challenging especially in the forest.  I was afraid the tires puncture. Half way when we saw a pool of mud, we decided to make a U-turn back as our little bikes cannot take the trails. There are many cyclists with mountain bikes…Hopefully we able to experience this trail when we got a mountain bikes.

Central Catchment PC – Forest ride…. My little bicycle cannot tahan!

We headed to the Singapore Zoo instead. Then we head to the Lower Seletar Reservoir Park.  It was a long long ride to the park.

Singapore Zoo ya..? 🙂

Have a break, have a kit kat..

Forest Adventure Super Duper Super!!! Yeh Yeh Yehh!

Introduce you a very exciting sports.

Spent the weekend at the Forest Adventure, located at Bedok Reservoir Park.  The place actually a park, has set up activities at the treetop.  Often called treetop forest adventure. There is rope ladder climbing, rope walking on the trees, rope canopy, flying foxes from one end to another end, swinging, and many more.

Me and my friends joined the Grand Course…The completion of the course takes about 2 hours and cost $34.

To me, this is the most exciting outdoor activity that can spend on the weekend with your family and friends.

One requirement: Better don’t go if you have height phobia.

And don’t worry, this activity is safe as its safely harness.

4-hour (approx 13km) Macritchie Reservoir Park Walk…

Long Long hiking + walking..

Interesting walk but very long… and tiring. It took 4 hours to complete the 13km trails. The trails are from Moderate to Difficult.

It was a jungle, scenery, muddy, longs stairs, rocky walk..fortunately it was fun..

Meeting point was in Bishan MRT..and buses can be boarded at the Bishan Interchange however, ensured everyone taking breakfast as the trails were long.

The walk started at 10am and completed at 2pm…

Where we walked at Macritchie - trails from Moderate to Difficult

A recommended place to spend for your weekend.  Although at first half there wasn’t any scenery except dense forest… but the 2nd half,.. the reservoir was very entertaining for us to keep walking while enjoying the view of scenery.
