Before yesterday’s trip to Pulau Ubin, I cleverly decided to tackle 30 minutes on the treadmill. I suppose I have only myself to blame for the state of my aching muscles right now.
You see, I’d naively thought that scouting out photoshoot locations on the island meant getting onto a minibus, getting off the minibus at a pretty spot, getting back on, rinse and repeat.
These were some activities that I hadn’t counted on:
– Climbing a 20-metre tower to document the view from the top
– Hiking up a series of inclines that were inaccessible by minibus, to get to the best lookout points
– Tramping through hardcore undergrowth and vines, to a mosquito-ridden (but picturesque) mangrove swamp
As I can be a bit of a princess, I booked a pedicure after work just to have an excellent reason to soak my feet in a basin of nice, sweet-smelling water. Said feet are now happy again.
I leave you with a couple of photos as evidence of my morning’s exertions.
