    I remember when I was in Primary school, ECP was just built..that time no trees for miles left and right and you have to walk a long way from Marine Parade to the beach. ECP highway was just starting but not yet completely built. Use to also have family friend stay in old kampung near the Siglap Junction with the oid market. My dad and me use to help his friend to push his sampan to the beach to catch sotong at night or whatever they could get from their nets heheh those were the days......that was how we spend weekends and you see hundreds of kites...big and small..use to hand made our kites to fly there. Made alot of friends there just sharing kite flying and the beach

    Wah piang! Thoses were places I knew! And a friend and I used to 'explore' the expressway, and off-road areas running beside the expressway leading to the airport. LOTS of cars parked along the unopened expressway late late at night.

    At night...hell riders...and alot of illegal racers too since the highway was not open heheheh....

    That time the park was super long, trees were only 4 feet tall.. bare off white concrete foot path and simple BBQ pits and the Big Ball white lights which vandals use to whack to crack them open heheh...

    By the middle 80s they close off section of it and I guess not pay for more park gardeners to tend those open area portions and they simple let it grow wild and label them as "Bird Santuary" heheh..

    Good morning lubbers

    1) Exact location

    2) How to settle dinner

    tahpow from food centre ($$) or anybody with transport volunteer to drive out to buy from hawker centre at marine parade (cheaper and taste better).

    4b) Beer - very important, any lubber with lub-mobile volunteer to get it?
    4c) Cool box with ice - any lubber want to contribute?


    5) Tibits and dips

    6) Sound machines

    What was I thinking, nearly forget sound machines, anyone can bring portable mini-compo?


    7) Games and eqpt

    Yahh... was nice to see the kites outside the window.
    I remember when i was young, there were often lots of windsurfers at sea and my grandmother will get very excited whenever she saw them and she will scream to me in the house to come and see. Scream macham like house on fire like that. Because the sails were very colourful, having many of them spread out over the sea was really an awesome sight to behold.
    I don't know what happened. Maybe windsurfing is less popular now or there are less competitions or what... I don't often see such things anymore. Sometimes just some windsurfs... but not many. Last time often can see so many.
