Weekend fun with family and nature
We love nature and we love spending family time together especially on weekends. Bet most of us treasure the weekends as that’s the time where everyone is available. No school (for some, maybe?) and no work (for some also, maybe?).
Weekend is also a good time to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city. So where to go? Bukit Timah hill! Mei mei has been pestering us on a hiking trip and so here we go!
We used to hike every weekends till NParks made an announcement on carrying out repair and restoration works to the slopes, trails and forests in the reserve. We stopped going for a period and now we are resuming our hiking trip.
By the way, we do not just walk and walk, the smarties were busy reading every info along the way (lots of pitstops >_<) and exploring the nature. Gor gor will read to mei mei and both will observe and analyse the information they have just gotten.
Very quickly, we reached the summit and both felt tired but satisfied.
Amazingly, they still recall what they did the last time we came especially the incident where they found a huge iguana on the summit. They went on hunting for it when we reached the summit this time round but to no avail.
Instead, they found many monkeys enjoying the view of us, humans. And us enjoying the view of them.
Mei mei wanted to grab one of them and give it a good tight hug but was immediately stopped by me. As much as I love nature and animals, not a tight hug with the monkeys at this point of time, sorry.
Finally accomplished our hike and we were all famished! We proceeded to have a good lunch nearby. We found a bistro serving fried chicken in Korean style: Oven and Fried Chicken. The place was pretty cosy.
We ordered their so called popular dish,Fried Chicken (of course, that’s what they are named for right?!) and a pancake. As soon as the food was served, smarties were fast enough to dig in! The food was delicious. The chicken was superbly crispy throughout our meal time. What we have found out is that they used 100% rice flour instead of wheat to get that crispier texture. Hmm… maybe I can try that at home too…
Satisfying our tummy: checked!
What’s next? HOME OF COURSE!!! Time for a nap to recharge our “battery”. Till then, do stay tuned for our next weekend adventure 😉
