Jogging @ Bedok Reservior (勿洛蓄水池)

This message is specially written for New Century's staff.

Located in the eastern part of Singapore, the shoreline of Bedok Reservoir (indicated in red marking, our running route) is 4.3km which has an average depth of 9 m. It is a man-made reservoir completed in year 1986 in Bedok New Town then. This reservoir has indeed come a long way since; in recent years we have had witnessed a series of international water sporting events initiated by Singapore Sports Council.

One of the popular jogging venues around, come 31 Oct, Friday it will be our company's health activity for the month. A fast & fit runner can cover the 4.3 km well under 20 mins but an average one can easily complete one round within half an hour, with minutes to spare even. If running is too daunting for some, fret not...for leisure walking around the reservoir can still be covered in an hour. Whatever activity one may choose, there's always something for everyone.

Those who have signed up for the year end Stanchart Marathon but have yet commenced any form of training due to busy schedule, you can well consider taking one bold step forward. Remember, the key to confidence building is finishing the race, never mind how much it takes to complete. Nothing is too daunting as long as one's mind is set to finish the task ahead.

Hope to see active participations in this activity!

Baan Dada Charity Ride 2013

It is another Bike-Aid Singapore's initiative and this time, Nicky was our lead organiser and he was ably assisted by Ler and Jennifer, both of whom have had involved in many fund raising in Singapore, Thailand and the region over the years.  Jennifer and Ler have cemented close relationship with some Thais in the biking community and best of all, they can also converse in the ear- soothing Thai language, certainly a plus for us.  And also, not forgetting, June, the ever young looking wife of Nicky who has been providing the admin support with flight reservation, the program proper, etc and during the 3 days cycling tour, following the cycling entourage in the support vehicle.  June has been a great help throughout, ensuring we were hydrated that kept us going and going.  And there is another lovely spouse of David and she is Ivy who has also been great in providing the vital support to the entourage.  Co-incidentally, this is also the 10th year for Bike-Aid Singapore to organise …

Fruit buffet for our taking  Admittedly, this is a tour not meant for any typical tourist. One has to love the outdoor, prepared to rough it out somewhat and sometimes, have to get wet to really enjoy the trip. In all there were 42 who joined me for this one day trip up north to Johor. We even had a gregarious lady who flew in from New Zealand to join us. Her name is Alison, a Briton who lives in New Zealand and this is what she has penned after her trip and I quote, "Thanks so much for this great and varied trip Collin. Mountain climbing, pampering, the fruit farm and all the lovely food made for a great day. Thanks for info below Kevin- yes definitely in no rush to eat chempedak again!! Great group and lovely to see so many of you again from previous meet-ups too :-)". Hers is not the only good review, we hav…
