A Walk at MacRitchie

17 July 2011. Hot day.

Yippee~ Finally the MacRitchie walk is possible. It has been said a few times but always postponed due to reasons like weather.

Walking in MacRitchie is really a good form of exercise, especially with a partner. We went there at 3 plus in the afternoon and there are already quite a lot people jogging, hiking and sitting around. The walkways are really full of pebbles and rocks, which makes it a challenge for me as I tends to lose my balance easily. But, with Eric around, I am in good hands. We saw interesting animals and creatures like monkeys, komodo dragon, etc.

We missed the time to go to the Tree Top Walk. On our way back to MacRitchie from the forest trails, we came by a split trail where we made the wrong choice. Instead of walking back to our starting point, we came out of the forest trail and reached one of the carparks along Upper Thomson Road. So, from there, we decided to head for our dinner since we both felt hungry.

After 3 hours in the forest, we walked all the way to Thomson Plaza to have our dinner at Swensen's.

I am so so tired now... Going to rest soon... :)
