Wednesday Wanderings and Wonderings.

In case we weren’t sure, we do live in the tropics and the jungle is never too far and never takes too long to take over.

This is part of the Clementi Forest and where the Malaysian railway run less than 10 years ago.

It is about 85 hectares in area and is the second largest patch of wildlife habitat, after Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.

When you walk/hike there you really don’t think you are in Singapore anymore and surrounded by high rise.

Singapore and Kuala Lumpur were once connected by a direct railway, which ran from Keppel Road near Downtown Singapore to the Kuala Lumpur Station. The railway was closed in 2011. While there once was a railway in Singapore, it was never Singapore’s railway. The land and tracks were owned by Malaysian Railways KTM, and Malaysia had partial sovereignty over this land (which was a sticking point for Singapore). After a land-swap deal the railway reserve has since returned as Singapore land.
