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..

Tigers attacked a man in Singapore Zoo

Have you been to Singapore Zoo? 5 months ago I’ve been there. Singapore Zoo is quite a well maintained zoo that you should go.

If you do not know about this news, i will tell you about tigers attacked a man in the zoo… in the zoo there were 3 white tigers where they were kept in the zoo compound. A man whom is a cleaner from Malaysia, have some inner problems (not sure if he is mentality ill???).. he jumped to the tiger pond, and walked towards to the tigers. The man in fact intended to suicide and having the tigers to eat him alive!

Two tigers pounced at him, and mauled him to death. Onlookers at first thought there were somewhat performance going on, unfortunately the man wanted to be killed by the tigers. When the onlookers realised it was “real”, they were trying to distract the tigers by screaming and even one trying an umbrella at the tigers.

This is a very uncommon method to suicide.  I mean, to me i will not suicide in this gruesome way.  I don’t want to die without my head.  or a leg or hand that had been teared off.   Whatever reasons, or whatever difficulties faces,…dying is not a solution.  Have you heard of a saying “live is short”… people wants to live longer, however, eventually there are also people want to make  their life shorter…

Live life to the fullest….
