Camping at Palau Tekong.
Together with classmates from other classes of UATS at East Coast Park/Palau Tekong
Few of my classmates together with other classes from Upper Aljunied Technical School, decided to camp in Palau Tekong.
A schoolmate Ah Han's(Aga Koh) grandmother stayed there. He brought us to his grandmother's house to pluck some coconuts. I volunteer to climb up.
I would climb up and one by one kicked the coconuts down. With ants bites.
Which is one of my happiest moment in my life. I was nearly killed. After 40 years I was still in touch with my classmate Mike. Which I recently met him, he married a Swedish wife.
Jason Quek used to co ordinate many of our activities.
I love to read about Mark Twain books on adventures. But my life was not less adventurous.
At an instancse at the beach, a group of us, decide to walk to a small island some distance away from the beach.
That was low tide, but things change swiftly the tide raise rapidly, we were stranded. All of us panic, we were grabbing anything we can.
I thought I could be drowned. But luckily my friend found a piece of wood, so I and him able to swim safety back to the beach, what a close call. Fortunately few of us were not drowned.
I heard there were cocodiles there.
I person tricked us to a group confrontation, fortunately nothing happen.
The immense pleasure of watching the morning sun rise and set, made it some of the happiest moment of my life.
The pure and unrestricted mood, enhanced the joys.
At night fall Mike took out a guitar and kept strumming. and singing together. We would watched the amazing beautiful full moon. What an unforgettable sight.
We chitchat to the wee hour of the morning.
We planned to stay there a week but after 5 days, the weather conditions and food, made it difficult to continue, so we decided to call it a day.
In the morning we walk around the beach, its an interesting sights lots of colourful creatures were crawling around the beach in the transparent water, in the low tide.
