Battle of Pasir Panjang Commemorative Walk

It was a tough walk for me as I was quite exhausted from the week and my flu. Thankfully Stella brought us morning coffee and a sandwich so although I still struggled to guide, the other guides, Oi Yee, Airani, Kenneth, Kiah Shen and Stella, later said we did okay.

One reason I suppose is that we had 53 eager beaver participants – I forget that we usually have bright-eyed and bushy-tailed participants during the commemorative walk; after all these are the people who get up to meet us at 7am in “ulu” NUS!

It got muggy towards the midday and then a quick shower relieved us of the heat. A bunch of people came forward later to thank us which was sweet. Many are guides or educators so they can appreciate the effort that went into the trip.

I twittered every now and then thanks to on my shiny new Sony Ericsson w902; I love having a clear screen on my phone once again!

After the trip, our reward – the guides + Wendy (who joined us after her unfortunate training stint), sit down for a long and relaxing lunch all afternoon; with the bonus of special members Georgiana and Darren. Georgi, like some of the guides, took turns napping…
