Punggol Promenade Riverside Walk

Posted by Dawn at Sunday, March 06, 2011
It was raining earlier today. However, we still decided to make our way to the new Punggol Promenade near our place in the evening. Though it was still drizzling very slightly, it was still perfect for a walk along the waterway.




We then crossed the bridge over to Lorong Halus Wetland.




The view was nice..very serene.


What's unique about Lorong Halus Wetland is how they transformed the river to a reservoir by some water treatment method. The amazing thing is how Lorong Halus used to be a land for dumping waste in Singapore.




It was a pleasant walk around the wetland.



And because it just rained, it was really a wetland literally!





After walking one round, we saw many people crowding around the bridge area and staring. I then realised our Minister Mentor, Lee Kuan Yew was making his rounds in the area. The guy, one of the most influential political figures in South East Asia, whom Singaporeans respect a lot as we wont be where we are today if not for this man.

At 88 years old, he is still persistent in serving his country and his people.



Had a nice walk back across the bridge but as for Caleb and CT, they were running all the way.



CT said that he would surely bring Caleb for jogging in future as he has potential!

We took away fried chicken meals from Popeye's fast food for dinner before heading back home!
