I got a bit antsy Sunday afternoon. I usually like being at home because I rarely am, but for once, I was hankering to be outside — outside, but not in a mall, so on the spur of the moment, I went hiking at the Southern Ridges. Half the Southern Ridges, to be exact — from the Alexandra Arch to Marang Trail and ending in Vivo City.
What do you do when you want a change of pace from the usual malling/cafe/bar scene that characterize how most of Singapore’s population (locals and otherwise) spend their free time? You head out of the city for one of the islands in Malaysia and Indonesia accessible by ferry from Singapore’s ferry terminal. Which is what we did yesterday — our own celebration of Labor Day.
