    I. Have. None.
    Mind if you guys bring some spare 1:1 macro lenses for me to try out? I only have the faux Sigma 17-70 macro.

    Also, I'll be arriving slightly before 0830, since no one can tumpang this easterner.

    Hi all,

    Sorry unable to join.

    Anyway we should call this Ironman instead of Marathon.

    Wonder which teleport services you using?

    there seems to be some confusion on the meeting place at sbg. the reason for waiting at sbg kopitiam is to allow everyone to have a place to sit and drink coffee while waiting for the late comers.

    since fengwei suggested visitor centre, i think we will wait at the visitor centre at 831 am. But those that come early at 730 am, like seefei and my fellow passengers, can proceed to the kopitiam before going to the visitor centre at 831 am.

    So the schedule is like this....

    730 to 830 am SBG Kopitiam
    831 wait at Visitor Centre to start off the marathon.

    Guys, would it be better to just meet at the KOPI Tiam and start there straight after breakfast (for the Marathon, photo not run). It's at the Tanglin Gate...



    I believe the Botany Center is where the Kopi Tiam is, and it's B1 (I think). Meet there, makan, and start off our nature trail for butts,insects,flowers,swans,kingfishers,sunbirds ... and finally reaching eco-park at the other end for landscape! Some of you can even use your IR cams for some beautiful IR landscapes there!

    actually i prefer the kopitiam cos parking at the visitor centre will be problematic. can we all just wait at the kopitiam and set off from there?

    So which KOPI TIAM you guys are talking about? The one close the the visitor center, or the one at the visitor center, or the one at the gate as hjbyeo said above?

    Feng Wei, dont worry about the location. we are in the same car.

    as for the rest, the map is very clear on the exact location. as encouragement to be early, the last one to arrive pay for the coffee

    Okay, let's meet up at the kopi tiam right inside the main entrance by 7:30, then we can start from there. If you reach the visitor center first, just shoot around there waiting for the group. Will be there before noon
