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.
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…
