Spent the fulfilling Labour Day long weekend with NDPeeps, starting with my virgin trip to Pulau Ubin! And the reason why I took so long to blog this entry is because there are so many photos to sort! 😱😱😱
Mostly taken by Miss Lyn and her selfie stick, so the sequence is all jumbled up~ I don’t even remember the exact route that we took now 😅 But doesn’t matter, I have tried my best to arrange them accordingly.
I don’t know why everyone doesn’t believe that I have not been there before, like it’s a must-visit for all Singaporeans…hmmmm. But oh well, I don’t go for camps and etc so I didn’t have a chance to visit. Finally did! 😀
Oh yours truly refused to cycle because it’s all rocky paths, not even proper cycling paths like the parks 😒 Prefer to trek than to push the bike 80% of the time. Furthermore I get to see more when I trek! And I love to walk!
A little mishap, or rather, a memorable incident happened just when I was about to step into Chek Jawa 😆 I stopped to take a sip of water, with bag unzipped, and then a monkey came running towards me! I panicked and ran right away, just then my packet of Cheezels fell off from my bag and the monkey snatched it right off the ground! Holy cow! He was so damn fast!!!
And he hurried up the tree with the packet of snack, OPENED IT UP and started munching on the tree 😱😱😱 I know feeding of monkey is not allowed, but this was completely unintentional! The Cheezels was part of my “picnic snacks” to share with everyone 😩
It’s kinda cute and amusing though; first time seeing a monkey eating my favourite Cheezels snack…hahaha! I wonder if it’s his first Cheezels! Bet he loves it like I do~ He’s just missing of a beer and TV 😏
And this is the beautiful house – House No.1 Nobodywhere the filming was done! It’s an introductory video about this place and I even remember that this house is built based on the Tudor architectural style, and that there’s a fireplace inside 😊 So even though it’s my first time here, it feels like I’ve already been here before (through the video)! Hehe!
This place reminds us of Montigo and also inspired Lyn to do jump shots again 😪
We dislike doing jump shots with her because she’s always the one with legs down when we are up! Confirm must jump 348763871 times to get 1 good shot one 😴 Damn tiring you know?
Was taking wefie with Lyn when she commented that there’s not much 风景 behind, so I was like, “I’m the 风景 lor!” LOL. Which pretty much explains the pose 😝 I’m just kidding. I’m usually not so thick-skin…HAHAHA.
After much walking, we arrived at the Jejawi Tower and were contemplated whether to climb up or not. Reminds me of the tower in Kukup which some of us refused to climb because we think the scenery wouldn’t be worth it 😆
Leaving Chek Jawa to head back to where we came from and saw the Cheezels mess caused by the monkey just now…tsk tsk! Wasted my Cheezels!!! The weird thing is, I couldn’t find the packaging! I think he must have brought it along with him so that he knows what to steal at the mama-shop next time 😂
Decided to take the longer route back to explore a little bit more~ Ah Gong Eric was reluctant but had no choice except to comply to the energetic us 😛 Despite walking and sweating so much, I was still okay to continue! I love and miss trekking!!!
I love to look at them from far or from the car, but not to be walking right beside them~ Damn scary! Only snapped photo of the 看水 monkey and not the rest because we were all scared of having our phones snatched by the monkeys! 😖
Boomerang-ing Mimosa is actually quite pretty! 😀
We actually kinda reached back to our starting point after much walking, but the enthusiastic Lyn still wanted to explore more places, and the rest of us were okay despite skipping lunch, except poor Ah Gong again 😆 So off we went to Butterfly Hill! Don’t have as many butterflies as I had expected leh.
But we still did it! 😀 A pity it was blocked by fence so the view was only partial~ But even though I am someone who always goes against the rules, safety always comes first to me – there must be a reason why they block it.
Finally leaving the island after like 6 hours plus of walking! 😱 Sweated so much but it was such a good workout! Very fulfilling day and definitely enjoyed my first Pulau Ubin experience! Hehe!
Had dinner at Pasir Ris before checking out the $1 shots at Michael’s Bar! So egg-cited about it because $1 shot is dirt cheap! Reminds me of my crazy shot-session with Mommeyyyyyyy, which I really miss!
30 shots! Out to make Lyn drunk…HAHAHA! But too bad the shots ain’t really shots; more like cocktails being poured into shot glasses, so the alcohol content was not as strong as real shots 😐
But the staff are pretty nice luh. Got us a table even though we did not have a reservation. It’s the angmoh boss from the bar next door that was cranky. But I never believe in degrading myself to the same level by arguing with such fella. Especially when I know the boss of the newly-opened Michael’s Bar was trying to minimise the conflict, because it ain’t gonna do his business any good either~
