    Date: 27th March 2005 (Sunday)
    Time: 10am
    Meeting Place: Changi Jetty

    Cost guide :

    $4 per pax for boat ride (to and fro, standard no children price)
    $8 to $12 for full day bicycle rental (kids bicycle maybe $6)
    $5 for a simple meal (noodle and drink for example) at the coffeeshop
    mineral water and can drinks cost $1+ per bottle/can on the island, good to bring your own supply
    local coconut (huge) $2 (maybe $2.50 ... forgot )
    thai coconut (small and extremely sweet) $2.50

    Food and drinks: buy there, or can bring sandwich for picnic, one or two apples in the bag is not a bad idea also (imagine all tired under the hot sun munching on a crunchy sweet apple, heehee)

    attire:
    loose fitting and well ventilated, T-shirt and berms will do
    proper shoes please, bare minimum sandals

    Others: Family welcome and encouraged

    Most places are renting bikes for $3 / day now. Don't expect super duper bikes though.

    Boat ride is only S$2 per pax (need to have 12 pax on the boat)
    Bike rental is S$8 (whole day) -- so far, this is the best mountain bike available. The shop is opposite the row of other bike and coffee shops.

    bike rental prices seem to have fluctuated much since i last went there, i don't know about the $3 bike, but i'll definitely not try that
