Newly open Woodleigh Shopping Mall Singapore and Alkaff Lake (still under construction)

 Woodleigh Shopping Mall, newly open, situated just above the Woodleigh MRT Station. Easily accessible via Exit E of the MRT Station.

It is a three storey shopping Mall with residence above the mall. 

The mall is linked to the nearby HDB estate via the link (bridge) and also opposite to Alkaff Lake (still under construction). When completed there will be a park and the lake. Will be wonderful for taking walks and photos at the park and lake.

A short video to show the mall and the many interesting shops and restaurants. Also video on the lake still under construction.

Will visit again when more shops open.

For more information on the shopping mall, visit the official website.

The moon is beautiful tonight. Spotted Venus just above the moon crescent.

Managed to video the venus and manify with my digital camera at 100 times. But is a bit shaky cause of the zooming.

Springleaf Nature Park and Lower Seletar Reservoir - Brisk Walking

Recently been walking around Singapore since I not ready to travel. Am still covid free, thanks goodness.
Decided to walk to Springleaf Nature Park and later to Lower Seletar Reservoir. The weather is really good. Took the MRT Train to Springleaft MRT Station and exit 2. Went for breakfast at Springleaf Prata Place for some prata and murtabak.

Is easy to walk from Spring Leaf MRT Station to Lower Seletar Reservoir. Looked at the map above and just walked along the park connector.

Springleaf Nature Park was formerly part of the Chan Chu Kang village – named after the headman Chan Ah Lak who acquired the land near Seletar River to cultivate gambier and pepper. The village was located in the 'kangkar' of the river, meaning the land around the riverbank in Teochew
Saw many beautiful water lilies.

After a nice walk along Springleaf Nature Park, we proceed to Lower Seletar Reservoir Park. The park is beautiful and a popular place for lesiure activies like walking, running and water sports like kayaking. There's a golf course nearby too. The place is also idea for bird watching.

Water play area for children.

Golf course neaby

Yishun Estate

Wonderful place for bird watching. Happen to see a huge bird (I think is a Heron) caught a big fish, the fish almost got away but was caught by the bird again. Watch the video below.
