Polaroid Adventure: Bedok Park Connector

January 26, 2009 at 12:08 am Leave a comment

sometimes, all we need is that mid-week getaway to get rid of the mid-week blues. be it a trip to the movies or chilling at home. for us,  lately, cycling has been our catharsis. nothing beats the feeling of the wind in your hair when you’re going at top speed. it’s what i imagine freedom to feel like.

ideally, there would be four of us, riding and exploring eastern Singapore. but as it were, two of the flying cows had school obligations. so the remaining two of us, hopped on our Dahon bikes and braved the scorching hot sun in search of our own little adventure .

the Park Connectors as the name suggests links the various parks in Singapore. Hence, our first stop along the Bedok Park Connector was Bedok Reservoir Park. The picture above was snapped at the recently built floating platform. A nice place to just hang out with your loved ones. and pretty romantic too, i might add. after all, green IS the new pink, remember?

As we paddled around Bedok Reservoir Park, we came across an obstacle course with ropes and vines hanging from trees. We later discovered that there is a Forest Adventure obstacle course right in the heart of the park. For more about the forest adventure, click here.

like true blue Singaporeans, food always has to be part of the day’s itinerary. we always plan our journeys and adventure around food haunts. i say it’s just a little something for us to look forward to. And after passing by rows and rows of gorgeous houses along Tanah Merah which we can only dream of owning, we were looking forward to a little pick me up. The Bedok Park Connector (which links Bedok Reservoir Park and East Coast Park) passes by Bedok Food Centre, opposite Bedok Camp, which is a food haven.

Icy cold Cheng Tng, piping hot Char Kway Teow, smoking Soup Kambing, silky Tauhuay. All the Singaporean food classics under one roof. What more could we ask for? For those looking for a lighter food alternative, there’s also Donut Empire and Ice Cream Gallery opposite the food centre.

after all the food goodness, one must not forget the one true highlight of cycling along the park connectors, that is, the lush greenery. the smell of crisp summer leaves, the view of the rows and rows of luscious green trees, the feel of wind in your hair, the sound of rustling leaves and howling wind, and believe it or not, the taste of the sun. an all around sensory delight.

Do try to explore this section of the ECPCN. it’s quite an experience. A map of the Bedok Park Connector can be found here. Share with us your experiences on the ECPCN by joining our blogging contest. We look forward to get in on your adventures. Until next time.
