    Ludicrous it may sound, but I guess its not really up to a civilian to decide what is 'ludicrous matters' for state security.

    MINDEF may have their reasons for closing it, you guys have ur reasons to cuss. I guess whatever the reason, the decision is final.

    Been there a few times and this thought came to mind....

    It is really a precious un-touch place of nature and truly the last kampong as compared to buangkok.

    Till date I took lots of friends there before already, all of them gave the look. Never expect this place exist in urban SG.
    untouched? i think that place has been used by SAF for training for a long time~.. i know i trained there before.

    Well, SAF is running out of terrestial training areas in SG.

    So yes, one less training ground at this point in time does SAF harm.

    Walk or drive also can. First time I went there, I walk in. Second time with friend, he drove in. However, the road is not in good condition.
