Our first run at Pasir Ris Park on 26 Dec 2010
We had our first run at Pasir Ris park last Sunday. Was not expecting a big crowd but turnout was better than expected. Holiday man Mark showed up with his two daughters, Ironman Eric was there with his wife and even Dearest Mui Keng was able to topo her way to the Park. Of course, local host Lily made an appearance to ensure that we are safe in her kampong ( actually this is her first visit to the Park !! ) . All in all, some 15 people turned up for running, walking or breakfast. The route inside in the Park is not very long but you can do some extensions and have a decent distance. It is also near the sea and the mangrove walk is certainly interesting for people who have never bashed through mangrove swamps before. We will certainly return to the Park in the future.
We had breakfast at the coffeeshop near Lily’s clinic. There are at least 3 to choose from and I have one that is breezy and cool. There is some variety in the food and coffee is so-so. Eric proudly wore his Ironman T-shirt ( having spent a bomb in $$, blood and sweat ) and I hope Ldr A had it recorded in his photos. For shoppers, the Ikea and Giant hypermart are just nearby in Tampines so as to make the trip worthwhile.
