    I was invited to a Volunteer Appreciation Dinner for Chingay participants at One Punggol. I came early in the morning at about 8 am hoping to explore this eco-town. It took me more than half an hour to reach here via the North-East MRT line from Outram Park. I ever came to Coney Island for a brisk walk few years back and a familiarization tour of SCDF first smart fire station - Punggol Fire Station last year. Other than these two places, I hardly know of any attraction in this northeastern part of Singapore.

    I started with a morning stroll along the waterway exploring the park connector from Waterway Point Mall to Punggol Point. The waterway is the icon for this eco-town. Near to the mall, there were wall murals erected at the side at hen farming. It was thriving and very peaceful till the Japanese Imperial Army came. Punggol Point became the site of the massacre during the Sook-Ching operation where hundreds to thousands of Chinese were ferried here in lorries and shot dead. The transformation plan to a eco-town was a recent initiative, and the town was developed in 2016.

    I could feel the serenity and tranquility at this waterway park: far from the hustle and bustle of city life, zooming cars, noisy engines and toxic exhaust fumes. Here, I heard only the water splashing sound, the bird chirping and inhaled the fresh air from the tall green trees along the banks.

    Along my way to One Punggol, I visited the Fo Guang Shan temple. It was a small one compared to the parent monastery at Kaohsiung. I visited the teahouse at the 5th floor and was amazed by the well-decorated setting. The founder, Venerable monk Hsing Yun of Taiwan died at the age of 95. As I left the temple, I still remember his quote on suffering:

    Those who recoil and retreat in the face of hardship will accomplish little; only those who are unafraid of suffering and adversity will succeed.

    After the stroll, I proceeded to the Punggol Regional Library Co-working space at 4th level of One Punggol to do my work. This library is unique and very modern with plenty of study rooms and adult coworking spaces. There is also a MakeIt studio where you can learn, tinker and create with technology. Free workshops on 3D Printing, Digital Cutting and Robotics are also conducted for those keen to learn.

    There is also a hawker center at the 2nd floor of this One Punggol building and I went to have my favorite `Lei Cha' lunch at a very popular stall here. Long queue, reasonable pricing and nourishing delicious food.

    After lunch, I strolled around the Waterway Park surrounding SAFRA and visited the Punggol Discovery Cube to watch the virtual video on Punggol Development. There is a free shuttle bus at the Cube that can transport you to the Northshore mall near Punggol Settlement. But I went back to my cozy co-working space to continue my work.

    At 6.30 pm, I went up to the 5th floor multi-purpose hall to have my Appreciation dinner. The hall was very big and the dinner very sumptuous with satay, muah chee, tutup kueh and fresh coconut juice.

    A fruitful one-day visit to this eco-town with very conducive environment to work, eat and play surrounded by great greenery park and peaceful waterway.

    This is not an area of Singapore that is well known to tourists but it appears to be one of the hippiest places in Singapore with loads of history. It came to life from a swamp in the 1930's with Art Deco apartments most of which have been retained as they were.There are some interesting restaurants, a market that sells street food that is great, a 90 year old temple (Monkey Temple) and the buildings themselves are worth seeing. There are no bright lights and signs and the place has a trendy vibe. Catch the Green Line to Tiong Bahru, take a left and walk Tiong Bahru Road and then go into the area with the art deco apartments and follow your nose.

    The circular overhead bridge across Braddell Road linking the Kallang Park Connector on either side of Braddell Road is now opened. It allows cyclists to cycle across it except for the ramp stretch where they need to push their bicycles.

    It is so convenient now for joggers from Potong Pasir area to jog along the Park Connector all the way to Bishan Park along the kallang River.

    It enhances the connectivity to Bishan Park. At night or early morning before seven, the lights on the bridge was striking.

    It was kind of hot along the narrow street, it is 2 bicycle lane widel. Of course, there were cyclist from young to old on bikes and many groups of peope walking up and down. Actually, it felt crowded. Ventilation was not very good. I came here for the novelty of it and definitely not coming back here again. It was not at all a hot day, but it just felt really hot. Bring water and umbrella, if you must come.

    Whampoa Park Connector starts at Jalan Rajah, across Toa Payoh Town Park and runs along Sungei Whampoa before ending at Bendemeer Road. It is 4.49 km long. However, this PC is connected to the Kallang PC at Bendemeer by the colourful Kolam Ayer Bridge. Hence it is possible to walk all the way to Kallang Riverside Park.
    It is cyclist-friendly as there are ramps at both overhead bridges across the PIE and CTE. There are much to see along the way such as:
    1) Under PUB's ABC Waters Programme, the 450m stretch of the river from Kim Keat Road to the CTE has been transformed to provide a rain garden, wooden benches and look out deck. Its aim is to foster community bonding and show how the rain garden helps to cleanse rainwater runoff.
    2) I learnt about the use of Gabions along the canal to allow creepers to grow to soften the look of the canal and protect the river banks.
    3) Blk 26B of HDB St George's Tower has a sky Terrace on the 24th floor which offers excellent aerial view of Sunei Whampoa as well as the distant Sports Hub.
    4) The Bendemeer end has the Kolam Ayer ABC Waterfront which includes a viewing gallery, floating platform, riverside plaza and kayak shed.
    Here the Kolam Ayer Bridge connects the Whampoa PC and Kallang PC.

    Pandan River starts as a storm drain in Bukit Batok that gradually enlarges as it flows southward. It flows through the HDB and industrial estates to a natural mangrove swamp at the end. Pandan River gets its name from the abundant Pandan trees along its banks.
    Initially the Ulu Pandan Park Connector runs beside the river and after the elevated Jurong Circular Bridge, the Pandan Gardens Park Connector runs beside it. My walk continued at Pandan Reservoir ( an elevated reservoir) on a gravel path.
    Pandan Reservoir is built by damming the river’s mouth and provides non-potable water to the surrounding Jurong industrial estates.
    I decided to follow it from a distance on the gravel path. Quite soon across the river is the Pandan Tidal Gates. Two large water pipelines run parallel along the river towards the Pandan Tidal Gates.
    Further up the gravel path is the view of a large water pipeline half-submerged into the reservoir.
    I exited the Pandan reservoir after the Rowing School and walked towards Sungei Pandan Bridge along Jln Buroh. At the platform on the bridge, the last remnants of a natural mangrove swamp ( previously prevalent in Jurong ) can be glimpsed at the mouth of the Pandan River before it runs into Singapore Straits. There are some boats on the river creating a rustic laid back scene. To get back to the Clementi Bus Interchange, there is bus 285 at the bus stop along nearby Pandan Loop. I would recommend this walk only in cool weather as there are no trees on the gravel path along Pandan Reservoir.

    After reading about the Tampines Heritage Trail- Green Space Trail, we started our exploration of this quarry along Tampines Industrial Ave 1. There are a few easy paths leading immediately to the calm water of the quarry. Rainwater had collected in the old, disused sand quarry and transformed it into a lake. This lake is about one-third the size of Bedok Reservoir and is a favourite with anglers.

    Sand quarrying started in Tampines since 1912 and the boom period began in 1960s when vast urban redevelopment resulted in a high demand for sand.
    By 1991, all quarries in Tampines ceased operations. One former quarry was converted into Bedok Reservoir while Tampines quarry remains disused.

    After enjoying the view of the lake, we took the trail to the right. There are in fact many trails and we just used our instinct to walk the trail away from the water. After some distance. we decided to climb up a slope instead of continuing on the easy trail. We were happy to see another easy trail after the short climb so that we did not need to climb down the slope. Finally we saw the two funnel-shaped towers of Tampines NEWater Service Reservoir.
    There are two coffee shops among the row of shophouses in the former Hun Yeang village just next to our exit point. This row of shophouses faces the Tampines Road/Tampines Link. The only bus which passes this road is bus no.72. We walked along the temple clusters to the bus stop opposite Tampines Dormitory along Tampines Ave 10 to take either bus no. 27 or 168 to our next destination, Tampines Eco-Green. We took about 1 hour and 15 mins for our walk at Tampines Quarry.. Some parts were muddy due to the downpour the previous day. Do bring along mosquito repellent for this walk.

    I registered for a medical talk at Ng Teng Fong Hospital at 1 pm in the afternoon. I decided to walk from Alexandra to Jurong East via the Rail Corridor and the Ulu Pandan Park Connector. I had exploited the Rail Corridor on several occasions but this is the first time I am venturing into the Ulu Pandan Park Connector.

    The North Bank of the Ulu Pandan Park Connector starts from Commonwealth Avenue opposite Buona Vista MRT station and branches out from Blk 14 Ghim Moh Estate. When I was working at Ulu Pandan Neighbourhood Police Post in the 1990s, I had performed bicycle patrols along this park connector all the way to Clementi Road. But I was shocked to see today that the facade of the connector had totally changed and the connector now stretches all the way to Clementi and Jurong East. The entire infrastructure has been upgraded and widened and is so clean and modern with bridges connecting both sides of the canal.

    I saw one old matured Bodhi tree with thick aerial roots and I wondered if it was transplanted here by NPARKS as I had not seen one when I patrolled here in the 90s. The connector passes Mount Sinai private estate and there is a side detour route to Dover MRT station where you can access the toilet facilities at the station. I also noticed that the upcoming Dover Forest BTO project will be around this vicinity and this park connector will benefit the new residents. Somewhere from Mount Sinai to Clementi Road, there are covered sheltered walkway on one side of the canal probably proposed by the Mount Sinai residents.

    After crossing the busy and noisy Clementi Road and continued my walk along the connector, I saw two special landmarks along this route. First is the Van Kleef Centre located at one side of the bank of the river. This Van Kleef Centre is a water research facility operated by NUS and the centre is named after the Dutch business man Karl Willem Benjamin van Kleef, whose bequest was used to fund the construction of the Van Kleef Aquarium.

    Further down the Van Kleef Aquarium is the abandoned iron cast black colored Jurong Railway Track Bridge which resembled the Bukit Timah Truss Bridge. The Jurong Railway line was constructed in 1963 to connect the Jurong Industrial areas with Malaysia so that goods from the industrial areas can be transported easily to Malaysia via the railway line. However, over the years, this railway line was found to be underutilised as businesses found it more economical and convenient to use trucks than the train to convey goods and eventually, the Jurong Railway line was demolished in 1992. Remnants of the railway line still remained and found them while walking from the connector to Blk 301 Clementi.

    The reason why I detoured from the park connector to Blk 301 Clementi housing estate is because the park connector was closed here due to a landslide and I could not make my way to Jurong East from here. Thus, I had to ply along Boon Lay Way where I passed the Clementi Fire Station, the Singapore Buddhist Youth Mission temple, Trade Hub 21, Chevrons before reaching Ng Teng Fong General Hospital (NTFGH).

    The journey took me more than 2 hours but I was rewarded with the sumptuous buffet catered at the auditorium by NTFGH and an enlightening talk on Colorectal Cancer by the doctors. It was quite scary to hear that male Chinese Singaporeans topped in global statistic for colorectal cancer. When I asked the doctor what were the contributing factors, she named smoking, alcohol and processed meats but she was quick to add that a sedentary lifestyle is also an important contributing factor.

    This is a linear park running parallel to the Bukit Timah Expressway. However the tall trees along the park block out the noise from the expressway. In fact this park is lovely for the numerous, tall and mature trees lining both sides of the jogging path. It is about 2.5 km long. It provides a venue for the residents to enjoy and exercise in the outdoors. It also serves to connect the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve with the various Chestnut trails. It also connects to the Bukit Panjang Park Connector which also leads to Pang Sua Pond. It also provides access to the Gansa Trail which ends in Mandai Road.

    Arcadia Road is one of the five heritage roads in Singapore. It is given the heritage status because of the green tunnel effect as one travels on this road. It is flanked on both sides by large rain trees with its umbrella canopies providing shade for the road and creating the tunnel effect. There are also lush green vegetation on both sides of the road due to a secondary forest. This road is next to the Adam Park Estate with its black and white bungalows which are well known as a holding place for the prisoners of war during the Japanese Occupation. Arcadia Road is very suitable for a walk away from the crowd and it is highly recommended for its green quiet ambience.

    This is a linear pedestrian walkway stretching from Geylang Road, opposite to Wisma Geylang Serai, all the way to East Coast Road next to Katong Shopping Centre. From the Geylang end, there are 31 community garden plots next to the walkway. Some gardeners are successful in growing the passion fruits, papayas, ladies' fingers while others focus on flowering plants such as orchids etc.
    Another good detour along this walk is the Eurasian Community House. Beside dining option here at Quentin's, there is an interesting exhibition at the Eurasian Heritage Gallery which opens at 10 am.
    Along the way there are some activities panels suitable for young children to play with. This walkway provides an easy path for getting to various locations from Geylang to Katong.

    Tampines Central Park stretches out like a green lung from Our Tampines Hub to Tampines Street 83. From the Food Court at Our Tampines Hub, it is an easy walk along the Festival Mall to the Park.
    I was there when the Golden Penda trees were in full bloom with the yellow flowers. The flowering of these trees are believed to be induced by a sudden drop in temperature. The trees are native to Australia and were introduced to Singapore in 80s.
    There are many jogging trails and interesting playgrounds for children.

    We started our walk along this park connector along Gerald Drive. It is beside the Sungei Punggol. On a still day, the reflections of the houses beside it provides excellent colourful photographs. At the start of this park connector, we detoured to take in the ambience of Kampong Buangkok which is the only kampong left in modern Singapore.
    This park connector is especially popular with cyclists, joggers and hikers. We walked on until Sengkang Floating Platform. We detoured from the PC to enjoy the different kinds of half-submerged plants grown here. This platform also leads to Sengkang Riverside Park. There are many fruit trees grown here. We saw many longan trees bearing lots of fruits. After that, we took the LRT from Kupang St to Thanggam St where we walked along a newly constructed park to Jln Kayu to take a bus to the Oval at Seletar Aerospace park for lunch.
