Hubby and I had a walk at Upper Peirce Reservoir a few weeks ago after sending son to his Sunday class. It was good to see so much greenery but I did wonder how long that would last. With the government aiming for 6.9mil people to fill the tiny island by 2030, I think much of the greenery around the reservoir will likely make way for high-rise buildings and roads. Already, large chunks of secondary forests beside expressways have already been sacrificed for wider roads to cater to more traffic brought about by the increase in population (mostly foreigners).
Anyway, enough of the grim stuff. Here are some photos I took of the place. I didn’t bring my camera along but I thought my Samsung Galaxy 3 did quite nicely 🙂
A family set up a picnic down here (the white spot beside the tree) which invited two monkeys to investigate (2nd pic). These monkeys (Long-tailed Macaque) are so used to seeing people that they are fearless of them. Instead, they can be a menace if they thought that you are holding food in your hands so it’s advisable not to carry plastic bags because they associate that with food and will just snatch it away or attack you.
Checking out the life buoy…
Hope you enjoyed the pictures 🙂
