Last day of the holy week! it is badly imperative for us to go out of our caves to do at least with the 3-day off. Most of the days are just us playing couch potatoes to movie sequels and trilogies. This is one of the few times where my housemates attain an almost perfect attendance to spent time together in a recreation (Ian again is out of the picture). Since it's Easter Sunday we needed a place that is something laid back and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. One of the places to be is the Pulau Ubin, it is an island off eastern Singapore and is said to be the last village or 'kampung' (native term) in Singapore. A promenade through Ubin takes you back in time to Singapore in the 1960's with the plain sailing pleasures of life.

Ubin is best enjoyed by pedaling through uncouth roads beneath swaying greens, wandering shrouded trails in overgrown rubber plantations, seeing for yourself the secluded beaches and thriving mangroves. In Ubin, air is definitely fresher than the botanical gardens in the main island of Singapore (in my opinion). No air test conducted... hehe.

HOW TO GET THERE. To get to Ubin, take the MRT to Tanah Merah MRT Station (EW4), then board Bus No. 2 to Changi Village bus interchange. Changi Point jetty is not far from the bus interchange. From the jetty, take a bumboat ride (S$2.50 per adult one way as of this writing) to Ubin. Bicycle rentals will range from S$5 to 15 dollars till 6PM. Additional charges apply beyond the lapsed time.
