And here’s Mother and Son Evening Walk #7

This was supposed to be a short but brutal walk. It was indeed brutal but not as short as initially anticipated.

On the bright side since it was going to be a walk in the forest I made sure we left way before 6pm. (Lesson learned from the previous week was remembered!). So it was meant to be short because we were going to go to the top of Bukit Timah Hill, which is the highest point of Singapore at 163.63 meter. I know so high 😂 but the assent is brutal. It was followed by the Dairy Farm loop and its many, many, many steps (on a side note I’m used to be the fastest of the group on this walk, well I am not when I accompany a 17-year-old 😉)

So this was the brutal part, as for the short turned long part, as we were reaching the MRT station I realized I needed a few hundred more meter to get a round number of kms (I know I’m weird!) so we kept on walking then instead of turning around to go back to the MRT station I told him the next one was just a 20-minute walk (it said 35mn on the app but I never believe it because I walk fast!) and he said sure let’s go, and who am I to deprive him of 20 extra minutes of exercise. Turns out it was great because part of the walk was a section of the Green corridor path that was closed when I walked it with my friends back in March. Win/Win situation and 8 km added to his tally (and a ok sunset)
