Nature Trail walk, 30/31st july?

Postby Neill » Thu, 21 Jul 2005 10:38 am

Hi

Anyone interested in a walk in the outdoors, to show there is life outside of shopping on Orchard Road of a weekend?

I'm open to ideas on location, I thought maybe start off with something faitly gentle rather than a 5 hour trek through the jungle (although I doubt such a thing exists anymore in Singapore, and if it did there would always be a 7 eleven within 2 minutes....).

I had a chat with a couple of people last night at WNDC and they spoke about treetop walks and bukit timah nature reserve. I also saw something about Sungei Buloh wetland reserver where you can walk through mangroves on a boardwalk - don't even have to get your feet wet ;-)

So I'll throw it open to get an idea if anyone is interested and then we can talk about where to go

Cheers

Hi, I am up for it - only on 31st (Sunday), ideally a late morning or afternoon - have not been to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve yet, so would like to go there.
Keep me posted...

I'm up for a nature trail walk, preferably not in the heat of the day. Weekend sounds great.

... unless you go very early or very late, it does not make any difference when during the day you go: it is HOT or HOT :)

... anyone interested to go tomorrow afternoon?

Ok I'm "interested in going" who posted above.

Shall we fix a tentative time and date to go to Sungei Buloh Park? My friends who went said it was nicest when it was really early, the air was cool and it was quiet all round. He was there at 7am but perhaps we can go a little later, around 8am-8:30am?

Date: July 31
Meeting point: 8am at Kranji MRT station for those taking public transportation. 8:30am at the Visitors Centre for those driving

How does this sound?

hi tangerika, I have long waited for the forum on nature walk, you know I'm very keen in this.

sound like there are 2 group of ppl here. if the weather is really fine, it will be very very hot in the afternoon. I try that before. Morning is a good suggestion, what about we meet around 9am.

pls keep me posted on the conclusion.

BTW, ru pals go to WNDC tmr??

My goodness Neill you must be planning a big bash out on Sat & therefore can't make it! Hey you started the thread u should be attending!

Anyway people, I would love to join you all on this outing. So is this a date confirm at 8.00am or 9.00am?

Organiser please confirm?
