Preparation:
Raincoat, extra clothing, digital/film camera, money (not more than $150), seasick pill if you really need.

FAQs:
1. Why this season of the year? Main reason is cooling, and perhaps schoolwork not so hectic yet.
2. Why sunday? previous experiences shows higher success for group photo trips on this day.
3. Why 0900? avoiding direct sunlight giving you over harsh photos
4. Can we change plan last minutes? Not unless very necessary like unforeseen weather etc.
5. Can i bring my friends along? Why not.
6. Must i know how to swim? Well ... stay tight on boat shouldn't capsize you, its a short water journey up there. But do expect slightly muddy situation.
7. Is it safe? Lets play a part for ourselves and members, and be responsible.
8. I am not a Pro, can i join? use any kind of camera, even mobilephone's!

posted ur trip details as google cal event on my blog :) to help promote
if u prefer it taken down pls pm :)
Will be ok,

However if group grown too big, it will be difficult to handle by myself.
I won't mind expansion, with One leader elected for group of Five (1:5).
Perhaps we can also plan different routes, to cover various locations, and meet again end of each route at certain time.
Please give suggestions, we are democratic here, so long minimum injuries and most can enjoy the trips.

Just a reminder again: the rain Might stop, and Might not, so do your own preparation, insect repellent and others stuffs. PLEASE DO NOT BE LATE! its unfair for those who are puncture, and we wouldn't wait for rubbertimer.

Btw, since you all are going the west side, you may want to go to the highest peak in Ubin. The entrance is along the way but it is a bit tough.
