Thank You for Your Heart

One day in August 2016, I received a message from dear Colleen. Colleen said that after she read Li-Ann’s post Bro Fist, she missed LA and would love to Skype her to chat or do a craft together.

Preserve Pulau Ubin

When I was asked if my kids would be interested to attend a 2-day workshop at Pulau Ubin, I immediately signed them up and offered myself to be one of the chaperones of the 20 children as well. What’s more – the workshop is FREE – no need to pay for bum boat rides, no need to pay for lunch and cold water is provided!!! What more can a Singaporean ask for?

Armed with insect repellents, snacks, water, hats, ponchos, camera and extra clothes, we were ready to GO!! Mr Alan Tan, our facilitator for the 2 days, met us at the Changi Point Ferry Terminal punctually at 8.45am. 2 vans picked us up and sent us where we needed to go. That gave our legs rest and brought us quickly around the island. There were no traffic jams at all!! What a respite from the busyness of city life.

OK here goes….Join in the FUN, follow the RED letters and see what it spells out 🙂 Continue reading

Where have U Bin?

Haha, sorry for the pun. Well, where have U been?

Recently, I went to Pulau Ubin (pronounced- oobeen), the second largest island in Singapore, and participated in a workshop called Young Hearts for Conservation. It was really nice to be away from the concrete jungle and not hear the sounds of cars. On Pulau Ubin, I was surrounded by trees and plants and I could hear the sounds of birds and insects.

Li-Ann’s Trip To Ubin

Some things I learned
– Learn about science- learn about leaves
– I should not feed animals because it’s dangerous: the animals will think that humans bring them food, so when they see humans, they will grab bags from people, thinking that there is food inside. I saw a wild pig eating food that someone left in a bicycle basket. This is not good for the animals because they will get sick.

Young Hearts for Conservation-Pulau Ubin

Who would have thought that in going to Pulau Ubin, I would get to see how dirty our beaches actually are, experience the process of reforestation and find out how NParks takes care of all the parks and forests in Singapore.

Initially on the first day, I was a bit disappointed as we spent the morning listening to a talk about why conservation is important, how it is being carried out in Singapore and what a conservationist does in NParks. After that, we finally got to do some hands on work. We went down to a part of Chek Jawa where we were given trash bags and instructed to remove the trash littering the mangrove. To me, this beach was a stark contrast to the relatively cleaner beaches at East Coast or West Coast. There were oil drums, tyres, plastic bags embedded in the sand, baby shoes, and numerous scattered pieces of styrofoam. There was even a deformed glass bottle from Thailand. Continue reading
