7 of us decided to go cycling along punggol park connector (PCN).
we gathered at sengkang swimming complex & took the PCN along sungei punggol past marina country club to punggol point & past coney island (or serangoon island). 🙂 we could see across the johore straits to pasir gudang with rows of kangaroo port container cranes.
we had a mix of bikes, from the top draw brompton to montague, giant, trek & my own dahon. there’s a cycling enthusiast among us travelled to new zealand to join cycling tours. he cycled all the way from alexandra to sengkang to join us for the PCN ride & carried on for a dragon boat rowing afterwards. rest of us mostly did very little cycling. for me it’s like the 5th time i cycled this year. i guess that’s not too bad actually! haha! 🙂
we stopped at a coffeeshop at Blk 401 hougang Av 10, which was actually facing hougang Av 8 & punggol park. the bakchormee looked good so a friend & i tried. unfortunately it was very average, the friend thought it was below par, somehow didn’t have the kick! the ingredients were quite plentiful, including lots of minced pork which i liked. the meatballs were soft & i didn’t quite like the taste. my friend though thought it was good. i thought the vinegar was not enough & somehow the taste was not quite there. we shared a black fried carrot cake. it was also average, not crispy, tasty enough. and a bit sweet. the wanton noodles also looked good but we didn’t try.
1 of us was talking about life after re & taking drawing lessons & learning about negative spaces, and showing us how his “self portrait” looked like at the start & end of the first lesson. 🙂
after makan we cycled along the pavement & returned to sengkang swimming complex quite quickly. the park connector route was about 14km & the return route was abut 5km.
it was a good fun start to our cycling activity. 1 of us who looked very stylo said it’s the non-cyclist that dressed like cyclist…lol. 🙂 anyway it interested us enough to plan for do it again at east coast lagoon the next round. 🙂
