Today I joint the group from Buddhist Fellowship for Pulau Ubin tour.
Setting up camp fire was fun too! I like to watch the sudden sparkle flying as the dry wood is being lit. Dry woods were every where and easy to find. We had a warm night watch the camp fire, singing song and chatting till midnight fall.
Our group organised by Buddhist Fellowship is blessed to have Ms Evelyn Ong to conduct the guided walk for us
0700 to 0730 am : Meet at the jetty at Changi Point
As I had not drove there for years, I stopped at two other jetty along Changi Coast Road before I found the right one. Parking at the open carpark in front of the Ferry Terminal on Sunday is free and that is the incentive for most of us who choose to drive there!
* If you are taking bus, the numbers are 2, 29, 59 and 109. The Bus Interchange is next to the Food Centre.
* If you plan to take your breakfast at the nearby Food Centre, do have a light one before taking the bumboat.
After conducting the headcount and briefing, we took the bumboat to Pulau Ubin. The ride was around ten minutes.
All the participants arrived at Pulau Ubin Jetty. Evelyn, volunteer guide at the NParks Information Counter give us an introduction of the island tour.
We commence our walk through the Sensory Trail which includes the Herbs Garden, through the rubber plantation and a visit to a domesticated wild boar, and finally to Chek Jawa on boardwalk.
Around this time, we break for lunch at the old kampong coffee shop.
The afternoon is free and easy...we'll explore The Lost World of P Ubin. This is reminiscent of the good old kampong days. Families and children will love this.
Return to the P Ubin jetty to take the bumboat back to Singapore shore.
A final brief before going home.
Here are some do's and don'ts to observe and details/things to do/bring:
1. Wear a comfortable pair of walking shoes/trainers and clothes.
2. Bring a bottle of water.

4. Raincoat/poncho, just in case.
5. Mosquito repellent.
6. Sun block.
7. Snacks/fruits/energy bar/wet tissues, etc...

We get close to nature and discover the Ubin's amazing diversity of plants and animals and it made today a beautiful day!
