Hello,

Next Sunday, 4th Nov, we are going on a local day trek.
http://tpadventure.multiply.com/photos/album/83
http://tpadventure.multiply.com/photos/album/80

This is an interesting trail for photographers with abandoned railways and train station, tunnels, graffiti, sunsets and erm... drains, which maybe thru the lens of a good photographer, even drains can look very beautiful...

So if you are interested to join us for this dirty hike, please take necessary precautions to protect your cameras and other expensive equipments from rain, mud and mosquitoes. Actually, please don't bring too many, we will be doing many climb ups and climb downs, stopping at intervals to rest and eat snacks, take some photos and take a quick nap, so by the time you set up the tripod maybe we are leaving already.

So, hope see you soon, good to have more photographers in our adventure club!

And we are also having a Dragonboat Orientation soon: http://tpadventure.multiply.com/calendar/item/10100

Anyway,

------------------------------------------ the details for the trek ------------------------------------------


Let's go Jalan Jalan Series - Poh Choo Kang Trek
Poh Kiat (Trek Leader) + Choo Choo Trail + Long Kang Walk​

Tracing the abandoned railway line from Bukit Timah Road, we will be going into forested areas with overgrowth and fallen trees and thru a dark muddy Halloween bats tunnel. Then we will take a break at the railway bridge above Sunei Ulu Pandan, if we are still full of energy, we will continue on to the Long Kang Walk which will lead us back to Bukit Timah Road.

Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints. Just footprints, not shoe soles, please wear durable shoes which can withstand durable mud.

Date: 4 Nov 2007, Sunday

Meet: 3pm @ King's Albert Park, Mac Donald 2nd floor, look for those wearing red t-shirts with the number 13 on them.

End: 7pm (estimated) along Bukit Timah Road

Attire: Long pants, covered shoes (with soles strongly attached), long/short sleeve shirt.

Things to bring: Minimum 1.5 litres of drinking water, motivational snacks, personal first aid kit, raingear, insect repellent, extra clothes & slippers to go home in. Waterproof your belongings!

People to bring: Whoever you like. Or hate :devil:
This hike is opened to public but it is quite dirty, muddy, difficult and tiring to walk. Bring anyone as long as they don't whine loudly, they can whine and walk at the same time and you can take care of them if they can't take care of themselves. Please don't bring pets and small children or we will eat them as motivational snacks.

Contact Poh Kiat: if there is anything you want to clarify or you have problems and you have nobody to talk to. Here's his email pocket_tisu@yahoo.com.sg

Actually this is more of a nature trek than photography outings, just that many of us like to take photos too (however lousy we are). We have been trying to organise a basic photography workshop for our members, but our only photographer member is too busy to host, so after 2 years it is still KIVing. But we are improving okay! Check out our gallery http://tpadventure.multiply.com/photos

Adventure, Sports and Nature are v good subjects for photography. Not to mention we also do other stupid and weird stuff that maybe can be catagorised as fetish photography:devil:. If any of you are interested to join us for our activities, to practice photo shootings or make find some buddies, please feel free, and actually many of our events are free, like this PCK Trek we are going this Sunday.

Our club is 100% run by volunteers, fresh faces gives us passion to keep on going! So, see you soon man! :cheergal:

After reading your thread, seems like there'll be loads of fun. I am keen to join, but how? Do I have to join as your Club member first? Any age barriers? Will you eat up elderly people like myself as motivational snack too?

Finally someone replied, YES! I mean, NO! We wont eat you and no membership required! Just come at right time right place to look for us, wear proper clothes bring the neccessary (read the details in first post) and dont be late, and remember to bring your camera! There's no age limit for most activities, usually when we trek, the lau kui ones are usually the younger ones. Just keep the children from us, we eat a lot :devil:.

If you want to rsvp or leave your number just in case can't find the Mac Donald, you can email the leader Poh Kiat - pocket_tisu@yahoo.com.sg

He looked and looks like this http://tpadventure.multiply.com/photos/photo/59/35

And the red t-shirts look like this http://tpadventure.multiply.com/photos/album/56/Overseas_Expedition_-_Pelapah_Panti_ Do you see a little girl in the photos, she, we ate already.

I very sad, the railways under the tunnel are removed with the mud... construction sites... Choo Choo Trail is disappearing. I think this might be the last time we are going there...

:cry:

or... after this Sunday's trek, i ask when Poh Kiat is going again, maybe a casual reccee with a few person, then inform you again. The trek is not suitable to go alone at least not for a woman, but go with PK is very safe
