    Can't say if people there are any different but keep in mind that while people in Kukup (which we may visit) are used to tourists, so perhaps more used to cameras, those living in Pontian town may be more shy as it's not generally regarded as a tourist destination.

    Thanks. If you mean you will drive to Pontian, then perhaps we can pay our share of petrol?

    Thanks.

    Well, well, we potentially have 2 kind souls willing to drive to Pontian. If that's the case, and you're willing to take us, I guess we can split into two cars and non-drivers will chip in for the petrol?

    Of course, there's now 9 of us and since your car can take 4, then hopefully wong_se's can take 5 then we will be set.

    I could only pick you guys up from Larkin and not SG. similiar on the return, would drop off at Larkin or Bukit Indah area for those who want to take CW3 heading back Jurong East.

    Let have a final list, and decide how many car we have.

    Understood. If we have 2 cars, then one car (hatchback) with 4 people can go from SG straight to Pontian. I wlll take the rest with me to Larkin to meet up with you.

    Two more things before I log off and get some sleep

    1. If you signed up but haven't PM me your mobile number, please do so to make it easier to communicate on actual day.

    2. As I mentioned previously, I am in United States now and I don't have a Singapore mobile number yet. About 10 days before the trip, I will fly back to SG, at which point, I will acquire a Singapore mobile number right away and I will SMS it to you.

    no worries, i have a canvas. when rain, I roll it out and you will be covered, the canvas has a small window, you can continue to shot. Just make sure u dun jump up and down, otherwise the in cabin passenger would be bumping up and donw.

    Sounds more like a vehicle convoy adventure than a photography trip. lolx
    I have a suggestion to include a list of cars with seating capacity for logstics purposes.
