Bukit Batok Nature Park

Last Saturday (8 April 2006), I took Inka to Bukit Batok Nature Park, for a bit of exercising and, for Inka, cycling. Actually I intended to bring Irza as well, but he was still asleep on that morning, and did not wake up after we waited for quite some time, so we decided to go without him.

Bukit Batok Nature Park is quite close to our home, at the corner of Bukit Batok East Avenue 2 and Bukit Batok East Avenue 6. It's actually an extension of the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve (separated by the Upper Bukit Timah Road), therefore its rainforest is indeed inviting. It's perfect with joggers who like uneven terrain and serene ambience.

There's only one bicycle track, though, however the track leads you to the main attraction of the park, a picturesque pond. The pond is beside a very high stone cliff (see top right picture). It's simply spectacular, perfect for photo shutters. Not far from the pond, there's a playground for children to play around (see left picture).

After Inka was having a great time playing in the playground and cycling around the park, we went to West Mall in Bukit Batok, to have our breakfast at Burger King, first floor. As usual, Inka ordered her favourite chicken ham croissant. There, we met my wife and Irza. My wife was also having appointment with some of her friends living around Bukit Batok area.
