a motley bunch of us, led by folks from the Singapore Adventurers' Club, braved the Sunday morning downpour, muddy gravel slopes, deadly insects, fallen tree trunks and prickly vegetation this morning to go on what is known as the "Choo Choo Trek" - a rough trek designed to follow the old, disused Malayan Railway track from its start somewhere near King Albert Park on Bukit Timah Road till it ends at the Singapore Mint (near Teban Gardens, off West Coast Road). Got utterly drenched but definitely an unusual and educational way to spend a Sunday morning.
