It’s a Good Friday aka 耶稣受难日 … ay “受难日”? … sounds familiar wor ^_*
This trip was planned quite last min … or rather I was ‘invited’ to join this trip just the day before, while I had a KIV plan with another group to Sentosa at the same time. Was in a dilema as to which to go cos both are the places which were listed in my plan, especially Pulau Ubin, cos it’s my first time to the island. Yes! FIRST TIME in my life 😛 ***mountain tortise***
**sorry…specially BOLDED to avoid more questions on “what’s the changes there?” 😛 **
Anyway the trip to Pulau Ubin was confirmed after the supposedly-cancelled Sentosa trip 😛 (they went ahead without me ;~_~;)
Woke up and set off as per norm working day, meeting YT at the mrt station and off we set to Tampines. Fun chat along the way…
After meeting up with SK and her 2 friends, J and A, at the mc and bought this not-very-yummy Bagel breakfast (if u dun mind hard bread, strong onion taste and bland scramble egg, go for it then), we set off to Changi Village Jetty via bus 29.
Changi Village, a 即熟悉又陌生 place where I used to go for some other purposes (not the hotels hor) some years ago. Somehow the bus terminal area has this kind of m’sia feel.
We decided to settle down at Subway while waiting for the other 2 of SK’s friends to arrive.
Finally after meeting up with E and O at the jetty, we set off to Pulau Ubin! Yeh! ***too hyper***
After 10 mins of bumboat ride, we FINALLY REACHED the island!
Though the sun was burning hot high on top of us, the island was surprisingly packed with lots of visitors around. Vehicles, bicycles, visitors, … whao!
I think I was more fascinated (**note** I’m easily fascinated … so please bear with me … hehee …) with the wooden structures around than the upcoming ride 😛 So me with my camera works again ^_* *snap* *snap* *snap*
Finally after 3.5hrs of ride, we decided to call it off. Most of us were dead beaten and hungry by then.
We set off back to mainland. Though tired and warm, after bidding goodbye to A, E and O, me together with YT, SK and J left on a cab to Queensway shopping centre cos YT, not familiar with the place ‘requested’ us to go with her for her sneaker shopping.
We hang around QWSC for about an hour before bringing her for her necessity shopping spree at IKEA (**note** it’s a mirror … a necessity for a lady 😛 )
After our late dinner and chat at Subway (again) anchorpoint, we finally set off home around 9pm and ended our eventful day ^_^
Thanks to SK for inviting me and YT to this trip.
Special thanks to the rest for being my guardian angels during my ride, cos clumpsy me fell twice along the way. 2nd fell was the worse cos I fell onto a big pile of dunno-wat-black-black-thing … which looks like … ay … dried up unsmelly cowdung … but no cows around leh … so dunno wat was that 😛
And oso thanks to the xiaomei YT for accomodating my baggie in her BIG 叮当 baggie after my fall =^_^= (真没用的我)
Despite the pain on my butt, hand, body joints and fall @_@ I will definately go back again … but wait! I got to build up my stamina first. Used up all the energy accumulated for the past tens years on a single 3.5hrs ride.
Oh yes the vehicles on the island! They are really getting on my nerves. Despite having to balance well on an already narrow path just enough for 2 ways cycling, and with swamp just beside, we still have to make way for any van or looked-ready-to-scrap-off car along the way (**slap on the forehead**). I think I inhaled carbon-monoxide more than the fresh air. Luckily that only occurred near the town area. Phew! 😀
