Happy Hiking Sundays: KTM Railway

Childhood Memory

It is like the curiousity of children, towards the little little things around the world. This is perhaps the greatest lesson taught by photography, which is to remind me of the beauty of curiousity, that makes me go and explore the world around me, and also treasure every possible opportunity to grasp what would be lost to the flow of time.

The previous hiking to add into my Sunday's hiking series, is to the KTM railways, the last day of the track being opened to public. I thought about going for a short walk at first, hence the flip-flops and camera. However, in the end, we ended up in Bukit Timah, following the track all the way from Bukit Panjang. The weather was perfect for a walk like this.

There are actually quite a number of nostalgic ones among the folks residing in Singapore. This became evident as crowds were seen along the KTM track.

Haunted by Visitors

People were taking pictures of the track, which will be removed in 6 months' time. Kinda sad, but this is the cost that comes with development.

Soon, I will miss the colour of the rusty railway track that ran like the spine of the island.

The scenes from the childhood memories: chasing after red dragonflies, yellow butterflies were so vivid along the track...

Fading memory

I don't know how the corridor will look like after the tracks are removed, but aren't we glad that at least this trail of greenery is to be retained? Thanks to the Green Corridor.

古晋中华二小旧校

废弃三小

All that remains here are rubbles, and memories of the old faces of Kuching town central.

Lone Chair

The school was deemed too dangerous for primary school students. After taking a short walk around the school compound, we have to agree to the fact. Despite the prime location in the city center, the Chinese school students must had rejoiced over the new school environment to study in.

过去式

I wonder how long this school has been in Kuching city? more than 80 years?

Happy Hiking Sundays

I think I am kind of addicted to Hiking, or maybe Bukit Timah did impress me for the first 3 visits with new findings each time. I did not blog about those as I do not have many photos that I think are nice to share out.

Fairytale-kind of light

A good weekend trip to go with friends I would say. Not to worry about timing! As long as there is no rain, we can go anytime without worrying much about sun and heat. It's so shady and cool inside the forest! With that soft light penetrating through the canopy of trees, dancing sometimes to the wind.

Mr Fish

Mr Fish, regretting over his decision not to bring along anything (his Lumix LX5) except his iPhone.

Yanni ※ Erica

Miss Erica, forced herself to wake up in the early morning (well, 8am is not really that early) of Sunday, sacrificing the sleep.

Yanni ※ me

And finally my beloved, who is always there for me!

More to update in future!
