Date : 20th Spet 2008
Time : 8am onwards
Location : MacRitchie Reservoir Park
Meeting Location : Main entrance by the lake


Getting there:

By Bus
Take bus nos. 52, 74, 93, 130, 132, 156, 157, 162, 165, 166, 167, 852, 855 or 980. Alight along Lornie Road at the bus-stop in front of MacRitchie Reservoir Park.

By Car
Entrance to the MacRitchie Reservoir Park car park is along Lornie Road.


Trip Plan:
We are gonna start from the main entrance at bottom right (refer to the map below), walk along the trails on the right side up to the TreeTop Walk, then turn left all the way around the lake, and back to the main entrance. It'd be a long walk, about 9 to 10km. So please bring some water, snacks (there won't be any shop around) and your rain gear.

If start from 9am, we probably can finish by 2 to 3pm. That's the plan. You can quit anytime you like, but from the main entrance to the TreeTop Walk is about 4.5km. I really suggest you to go there if possible :)

Suggested dress code: casual shirts, long pants, shoes w/ covers (no slippers)
Stuff to bring: water, snacks, rain gear, mosquito repellent, and most important, your Pentax photo gear :D

Come on guys. My 4 year old little girl is gonna do the full distance, and I'm sure she can do it. You think you can't even match a 4 year old little girl?

If you can't do it, she's gonna kick you butt:

Sure fengwei. Unless she starts running, we will have hard time catching up with her with our gears.

It's good for you ... to walk some stairs ;)

My daughter even walked up to the top of the Great Wall and came down too, all the way by herself. After over 2 hours hard walk, she still could fly like this:
