A Very Long Walk!







Whew...Am I ever worn out! I jumped off a bus next to the starting point of Alexander Walk and maneuvered along the walkway, high up at tree-top level over the beautiful jungly area below. The walkway is made of steel grating so it was a little scary to look down between the metal bars and it was rough on my little toes but the view was well worth it.


At the end of the trail I took a rest and licked my sore feet before proceeding on to Terrace Garden, located in Telok Blangah Hill Park. From this elevation I could see all  over Singapore. Their were very few people around so it was very peaceful but I understand their are a lot of picnics and other activities held at this picturesque setting.




I am afraid my father would not like it much in this park.You see, he is learning to play the ukulele and there is a sign stating, "No Playing of Music"...??? In his case he is so bad that when he plays it really doesn't sound like The Sound of Music lyric, "The hills are alive, with the sound of music." When he plays, it is more like, "The hills are alive with the sound of noise."



From there I traveled along the wooden walkway called Henderson Waves. It stretches  274 meters and is lined with covered sitting areas that connect to each other, forming a series of wooden waves. Very ingenious! I am guessing a very creative cat must have designed it.



At the end of the waves I came across a very long skink. He was stretched out on a concrete beam and was absorbing the heat from a sun. He looked like he was in seventh heaven. He totally ignored me so I left him to continue on enjoying his blissful nap.


The trail entered a shady part of the woods and ended up at the cable car station at Mount Faber Park. There was no way I was going to ride the wiggly cable car down the hill so I walked on down the path to Harbor Point. From there I jumped on a bus that dropped me right in front of my home.


I think I walked about 5 kilometers today. Not much for people but lots for a kitty. It was a beautiful day and the scenery was gorgeous but all four of my feet are killing me! I can't wait until my mother comes home to pet me and rub my feet.

  1. Five kilometers? Wow! That IS a really long walk.

    Everything there was very beautiful. Even the pathways were beautiful but... Purrla... I noticed that some of them were up super high. Please be careful, okay? Make sure you never fall from places like those.

    Purrs,
