MacRitchie Reservoir Tree Top Walk

Posted on Jul 29, 2014 in Bing, Nature, Singapore

An early morning walk with my family at the MacRitchie Reservoir Park and over the suspension bridge of the Tree Top Walk. I usually laze in on weekend mornings but it was heaps of fun being in the outdoors for a change, checking out the beautiful landscape that Singapore has to offer. The Tree Top Walk is a free standing suspension bridge that connects two of the highest points in MacRitchie. It’s 250m long and the highest point is 25m. Slightly weak knees here.. Who says there’s nothing to do in Singapore? Notes from the NParks website – The Tree Top Walk is approximately 4.5 km (1.5 – 2 hour walk) from the MacRitchie Reservoir Park and 2.5 km (45 mins – 1 hr walk) from the carpark at Venus Drive. Therefore, a round trip including the TreeTop Walk...

The Safari Trip

Posted on Jun 03, 2014 in Bing, Nature, South Africa

I’m often asked what South Africa has to offer as a holiday destination. The answer is everything you want in a holiday – the mountains, the sea, the beach, culture, people, food and wineries. Plus, the safari. And isn’t the bush just the most magnificent place to go to. Whether to chill and relax or to enjoy nature at its best, or to battle it out with a delinquent elephant. This was my 6th safari trip in 3 years. I never get sick of it. This was the first time I went completely without my DSLR. It was all about family, friends, animals and nature. The hubby in the glorious wilderness. Face-off with an indignant Ellie, who was scaring us with mock charges and loud trumpeting. Three lion sightings over two days. The binoculars are the best gadget to...

Cape Winelands: Franschhoek and Stellenbosch

Posted on May 26, 2014 in Bing, Food & Cooking, Nature, South Africa

We had started off our trip in South Africa at the Cape Winelands, where some of the most beautiful and luscious wines are produced. Franschhoek is only 30 minutes by car from Cape Town and is the loveliest little town to stay for a few days, to soak in the quaint architecture, warm atmosphere and the still peace. From there, we drove back and forth to the other nearby major wine towns like Stellenbosch and Paarl. Some of the world’s best reds and bubbles are produced in the Cape Winelands. Be sure to check out Boekenhoutskloof Wine Estate for their knockout red, The Chocolate Block. The Haute Cabriere Wine Estate for the yummiest Chardonnay Pinor Noir (which has become our favourite white now) and the finest Pierre Jourdan sparkling wines. And Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards for a gastronomic experience...

Kranji Countryside

Posted on May 04, 2014 in Bing, Family, Nature, Singapore

My sister-in-law dragged us out of our usual city style weekend into the “countryside”. My family spent a lovely morning having an organic healthy brunch (yeap, no champagne), where dessert was homemade banana bread and gula melaka pudding. The kids loved it. And I had fun watching my dear nephew approach the animals. Fabulous family time. Brunch at Bollywood Veggies. Feeding rabbits at Farmart Centre. Fresh veggies galore at Kok Fah Farm Weekend Market.
