Pulau Ubin Trip
Yesterday was a public holiday here in Singapore. It was Vesak Day or Buddha's birthday. To all buddhist, happy holidays!

Since it was a holiday, my friends and I went to Pulau Ubin, which is an island of Singapore. It is located in the northeast part of Singapore, which is near Punggol, Pasir Ris and Changi. To get there, you need to need to ride a boat at Changi for only 2.50 SGD. It will only take you five to ten minutes to the island. Make sure to apply OFF to your skin as there are many insects in the island.

We reached Pulau Ubin almost lunch time where we ate at this Seafood restaurant near the bike stores. If I can recall, we had calamari, sweet and sour pork, buttered shrimp, mixed vegetables, clams and seafood fried rice. After our long lunch, we went to the bike stores to check the prices. One of the attractions of Pulau Ubin is to ride the bike. You can hike but it will take you double time. My bike costs 6 SGD. I'm just shocked that they rent it that much even it is posted in the website that it is only for 2 SGD.

I didn't expect that it would be that hard especially the uphill tracks. You need to walk instead. My legs sore and my ass hurts from the bike. It is very uncomfortable.

Anyway, our first stop was the view tower where you can see the mangrove and some birds and airplanes flying. It was scary though since the tower sways a bit. Near the view tower was the mangrove. So we walked there and took some photos. It was awful that the oil spill was present in the mangrove and it smells bad. After that, we headed back to go home. Maybe next time we will head to the West part since we already covered the East part.
