    Only thing I can recall bout this place was getting fried there while doing Chinese/Japanese cosplay like themes. Multitute rocks there adds to the BBQ effect, so just bring lotsa sunscreens

    that's a sweet pic dmon888. will ask your advice when trying scenery shots .

    basically bringing lots of water and wearing cool clothing is recommended as the 10am sun really bites .

    as for the number cap , its more of a guideline. you're free to join as this is a free and easy outing.

    just a suggestion on the "itinerary ". please feedback if there's anything I missed out or you would like to add

    a ) meeting will be ard -0730am and we can set off at 8am so as to accommodate people who are travelling from far. this will also leave time for mingling and chit chat.

    b ) we set off into the garden and meet back at the mrt ard 12pm or 1pm for those who like to have lunch at jurong point .

    c ) its a free and easy outing so introduce yourself and mingle. there is no specific person to ask the questions so ask everyone! (helps the mingling part)

    d ) guys/gals who are more familiar with the equipment please try to help the newbies out. we all have to start somewhere.

    e) most important - Have Fun!

    still joining photoshoots on a weekend but I saw this cheap (compared to Hoya) IR filter in the mass sales section so i'll try IR in this outing.

    hoping to use my wide angle too since its almost useless in photoshoots

    Haha! I bought an IR filter when I had a short craze for IR shots..
    BUT have not used it yet as I'm not really into it now..
