You know, Singapore is so small that most of us probably think that we have been to every part of the island already. Well, last Saturday I discovered a few more places that I have never been to before. Like the park right on top of Telok Blangah hill. I was amazed that this was the very first time that I have seen the place. The architecture there is probably forty or fifty years old, but I don’t ever remember being there as a kid.
Thanks to the Garmin Asus Live Navigation challenge, I had the opportunity to discover a few more places in Singapore. It wasn’t as physically challenging as “The Amazing Race”, but some of the clues were quite sneaky. For example, one of the clues were about this place which was previously known as “Forbidden Hill”. In the past, I would probably have called one of my friends to find out the answer, but nowadays, you can simply google it with your smartphone.
It really was too bad that it rained, or else the kids would have a whole lot more fun running around Telok Blangah Hill and Fort Canning park. I didn’t come in the top five, but I think we if they had a family category, we would have been first (and last)! The last time I was at Fort Canning park was 15 years ago when Rockett Girl and I were taking our Wedding photos there. Now my son is already ten! How time flies. He managed to recognize the lamp post where Rockett Girl and I posed for the photo that is sitting in our living room. (Yes the “run around the lamp post” thing was so nineties)
