Off in Western Singapore is a fairly tall hill (by Singapore standards at least) that’s covered in jungle and criss-crossed with some steep, though well-paved, trails. It’s the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, and it’s a popular place for people to go hiking on the weekend. So one hot Saturday afternoon in February 2020, that’s exactly what we did.
It happens to be very close to where BFF Jayden lives, so Jayden and little brother Jonnie came with. And those three boys weren’t the only monkeys on the trail!
It was a good long hike, steep in parts (as mentioned) and very sweaty.
But it was a very nice stroll through the jungle.
Finally we reached the top and celebrated by climbing atop the ceremonial boulder.
Bonus behind-the-scenes material: Nyan and Jayden walking to the subway station on our way to the park:
And dancing as they waited for the subway:
Special bonus: just outside the park was a small cafe. We didn’t go in, but Nyan the sloth-lover absolutely had to get a picture taken with the sign.
An afternoon of sloths and monkeys. Nothing wrong with that!
