    Just a question, from the meeting place at
    punggol plaza to Location A (sunrise shoot),
    it seems that we would be going through the hill,
    so I would think that the right attire would be advised.
    Correct me if I am wrong.

    Are we going right to the river front?

    It does not matter what camera you use, just as long as it can take pictures.
    That is what you are going there for, right?

    Also read abt the Haw Par Villa articles.
    Wow .. this website is a good past time reading material.

    Good effort guys, for organising this meetup. Anyway, am staying in Seng Kang but a pity for me as can't make it for the sunrise shoot. Will be happy to join any other shoots u guys organise.

    Cheers

    ok, here's the plan i have drawn up, more suggestions welcomed

    0630
    sharp meet at location 'X' for all joining sunrise shoot (please be punctual! need time to walk to location 'a' [path quite rugged] and need time for setting up) location 'X' is the only busstop along Punggol East and between Punggol Central and Punggol Field.

    note!: small torches will be very useful when making our way to location 'a'

    0650 - 0900
    location 'a' and surroundings, sunrise shoot and some nature shoot

    features: serangoon river, drain (see map) with thick vegetation along the sides, occasionally there'll be some birds like heron and others that live near seasides ... paiseh, not good in this field

    beware!: potholes along the way, please do not risk climbing over railings along the river banks, snakes have been spotted infrequently, sometimes there'll be wild dogs, but so far no unfortunate incidents, just be careful

    0900 - 1000
    2nd meeting cum breakfast at location 'p1' Punggol Plaza Koufu Foodcourt
    after which proceed to location 'b', Punggol End

    features: new neighbourhood shopping centre ... maybe can do people shoot (there's a wet market at basement level also)

    note: can get some water/food supply at NTUC

    1030 - 1430

    exploring and shooting locations 'b' and 'c' after which proceed to location 'p2' for a break (p2 is block 198, a coffeeshop)

    features: unused jetty, War Memorial beach (lots of huge rocks), former SAF training ground (sometimes got people park their car there and 'suntan') there's a small private neighbourhood around (lorong 24) with a number of catholic missionary child care centres ... hey, how about a small picnic there? haha

    note: there's a police post at the jetty checking for illegal immigrants ... but i don't think we'll catch too much of their attention lah

    beware!: occasionally rugged landscape, there's a relatively big drain to cross to get to location 'c', lots of thick vegetation inland

    1500 - 1600

    break at location 'p2', after which can do some walk around some of the fields ... can catch people flying kites since it's a weekend ...

    1730 - 1900

    proceed to location 'd' ('Punggol House') OR punggol riverside

    1900 onwards

    you guys want dinner or call it a day? maybe we can decide on the day itself ...

    general things to note:

    1. equipment

    TRIPOD! especially people doing sunrise/sunset
    of course, dun blur blur leave home without camera and film rolls!

    2. sunny day preparation

    proper shoes for exercise and pants/slacks recommended since there may be some walking around bushes ... this is to protect from insect bites etc.

    wear a top that allows some 'ventilation' with so much moving around ... cap/hat will be useful, sunblock optional

    hydrate yourself! i.e. bring a bottle of water ... at least a small bottle, we can get some replenishment during breaks

    3. wet day preparation

    umbrellas and light raincoats will be useful in case we get stuck in rain at locations 'a', 'b' or 'c'

    get some plastic bags in case there's no time to respond and need to quickly protect the equipment

    if a big downpour comes ... we may need to have a second plan ... any suggestions? me scratching head liao ... phew

    lastly,

    p3 is a small canteen at the punggol bus interchange
    p4 is prime supermarket

    both locations may be useful if more water is needed

    also ... i need a volunteer to bring some light first aid tools just in case, anyone? paiseh, i not very ready when comes to first aid

    p.s. for those wondering, i decided to exclude Compass Point as a meeting place as it's not very convenient

    Happy shooting ...
    hi! unfortunately there's no alternatives but you may want to consider joining the shoots for the rest of the day, if you come early enough maybe can even join us around location 'a' for the morning shoot

    thanks for helping with the note! there's no hill along the way, but some 'nasty' vegetation (maybe not so nasty) and bumpy road ... will need torchlight to move around in the early hours ... attire is advised above, but not compulsory

    Hi,

    I'm keen on this but 27 Nov is not a good time.
    Maybe another Sat in the future would be good.
    Punggol is a place I'm not familiar, so I'll like to explore this place with fellow shutter bugs.

    U can take No.3 & 83 from Punggol Interchange.
    I can't remember how many stops. I'll walk u through, hope this helps;
    - Both servces' routes are the same.
    - They exit interchange & turn left.
    - Comes to a T-junction, turn right into Punggol Central (Rd).
    - Go straight for abt 4 to 5 stops.
    - Another T-junction & turn right, u'll see the LRT track cutting across.
    - Alight at the 1st stop after this turn.

    If u still , pls pm me
