An afternoon at Dairy Farm Nature Reserve
The new “Dairy Farm Nature Reserve” was the first location that popped in my head, when I was in the midst of a search for a new nature place to visit. As the name suggests, the nature reserve used to be a cattle farm operated by Cold Storage. Through the years,the area was used as a vegetable farm before being converted into an Orchid plantation. Catering to people of all ages, the park has 2 easy walking trails – 1) The Wallace Trail that leads you to the Wallace Education Centre, where you can gain knowledge about the biodiversity found within that area and 2) The route to the Singapore Quarry, where you will be greeted by a spectacular view of the quarry. For those who are looking for something more physical and strenuous, do take the uphill trail to the “peak” of the neighboring Bukit Timah Hill. Set aside about an hr + to 2 hrs to enjoy the greenery and wildlife. If you are lucky, you might just be able to spot monkeys climbing and swinging from one tree to another ( just like we did! ). An oasis in the city.
The path to the Quarry
Not one to miss out on a photography opportunity, MK brought along his Canon SX1 IS camera and snapped quite a handful of pictures along the way. Here are some pics taken by both yours truly and her boyfriend.
