8 October 2018, 0800 hours – 0900 hours

Cycled to Camp Challenge for 8.2km, 1 hour.

I have decided to cycled to work as i have plenty of time and save fare for my transport.

I cycled through the bus 169 route as im more familiar with the route.

The whole journey was actually such a cooling weather. I was glad i didnt burnout through the whole journey.

now i feel like cycling more often to work!

Client: Fuhua Secondary School (National Cadet Corps)

Time: 1500 hours – 1800 hours

 

At 1330 hours, i had check in at Camp Challenge, CELL with my camp chief, Ali & project manager, Nithiya. Alongside with me we have The crew (Jessie, Huz & Jenny), Nad, Mai, Nisa, Tricia & Fattah. During check in, we briefly went through on programme’s contents and roles.

The activity was Kayaking (Coastal Clean up). Ali & Nithiya was on land while the rest of us was on safety kayak ensuring the participants safety. We had 1 hour 30 mins to transfer the kayaks, personal floatation devices (PFDs) & paddles from Camp Challenge Campsite to Sembawang Park.

At 1430 hours, the participants arrived at Camp Challenge Campsite. They did their Hydration, Energy, Attire, Refilling of Water Bottles, Toilet Breaks & Safety Checks (H.E.A.R.T.S) before they starting heading off to Sembawang Park.

At 1500 hours, the participants arrived at Sembawang Park for their kayak briefing done by Jessie. Sooner after that, we assist in allocating our participants to their kayak and head off towards water venture to start off the coastal clean up.

While on sea, there was times when Jessie calls for raft up. During raft up all of the participants will join their kayak side by side. During the raft up, we share on what some of the participants have collected as part of their clean up. A pair shared that they pick up a huge destroyed container, while the rest pick up as many litter such as plastics and wrappers.

After kayaking, Ali shared the importance of keeping the environment clean. After that we head back to Camp Challenge Campsite for wash up before sending them off back to their school.

 

Challenges faced:

There isn’t as much as litter as thought so Ali explains on how clean Singapore is and we should maintain the cleanliness whether on sea or on land.

 

What i learned:

We don’t have to wait for experiences like these to realize the importance of keeping our environment clean. Taking initiatives help enable others to act!

10th September 2018, 7am – 7:30am
Cycled to Sungei Buloh for 14.1km, 30 mins.

As planned, my friend and i cycled to Sungei Buloh. We met at my house to begin the trip, grab a quick breakfast prepared by my mother before the trip.

The journey to Sungei Buloh was actually a great one! We experience outdoor environment while cycling. There were different types of insects & animals we saw that we don’t see much nowadays. The scenaries there were super great!

Cycled back home from Sungei Buloh, 14.1km, 30 mins

In conclusions, experiencing outdoor actually allows me to understand the importance on respecting mother nature. We are surely going to plan another trip that involves cycling and trekking.

4th September 2018, 8pm – 9:30pm

Cycled to Woodlands Waterfront for 3.7km, 10 mins.

I invited a friend of mine to cycle and have a catch-up after 2 months being out of school for internship! He actually stays 3 blocks away from me. He was actually very willing and we decided that we will go cycling on the 4th of September 2018.

We met at my house, to have our early dinner before we head off to Woodlands Waterfront!

The purpose of cycling to Woodlands Waterfront is to catch the amazing scenary in the evening with my friend. It was beneficial as im able to relief my stress from work just by catching the amazing scenary in Woodlands Waterfront.
