10 Apr 2011 - Lorong Halus Wetland and Serangoon Reservoir

This morning we were still thinking of where to go. While surfing net, we came upon a website mentioning about Lorong Halus Wetland. So that's where we were going. I told Jerlene and Javier about it and gave them each a hat. They were both very excited and were ready to go almost immediately.

Located in north-eastern Singapore along the eastern bank of Serangoon Reservoir, Lorong Halus Wetland was transformed from a landfill into an educational site and biodiversity haven for plants, birds and other wildlife.

We went by TPE and exited at Lorong Halus. It was a long straight drive to the wetland.

There are only 3 parking lots right at the entrance and I managed to get one. We first came to a shelter where there are information about the surrounding area. As it's an open space, my little angels were running wild.

Next we came to a bridge that spans across the Serangoon River. My princess cannot resist the beautiful scenery and pose in front of the bridge. :-)

As the weather is very hot, we stopped at the middle of the bridge where there is cover. It was water party time.

After resting for about 20mins, we proceed to the other side of the river. Initially we thought of walking to the end of the park but as the weather was too hot, we decided to turn back.

Javier was like a kampong kid running around in his singlet, especially on the grass. He seems to have unlimited energy and he kept running all over the place. We all (including Jerlene) surrendered except Javier.......

We took another break on the bridge. Looking across the bridge is a dam that blocks off serangoon river.

When we left the place, both Jerlene and Javier were so tired that they slept almost immediately after getting into the car. If not for the hot weather, this is definitely a good place to relax, especially with your family.
