Do you know we have a Japanese Cemetery Park here in Singapore? Yep, me neither. Till I read about a cache hidden there.
I also read about pokemon hunters, or trainers or whatever you call them, descending on the park to play Pokemon Go. Glad this sign was put up. I know some people will say: what’s the difference? You geocachers are also playing a game what!
Well, if you are a geocacher, you will know the difference. So far, I’ve known the geocaching group (at least the one in sg here) to be genuine adventurous and nature/outdoor loving bunch. We also have initiatives to clean up the sites while playing geocaching. Cache owners often remind players to be respectful to the site, the people and the flora and fauna. We also have moderators checking up on the caches.
I took a long long time quietly admiring the park, reading descriptions and taking pictures. In fact, ended up not doing any geocaching at all because 2 muggles were sitting on geozone. Sobs.
Was trying to locate the lychee tree from the map.
My favorite tree in the park. It held such a presence and could be seen even before I entered the grounds.
The prayer hall was locked. Managed a picture of the inside.
If I’m not wrong, this is the lychee tree. An SG Heritage tree. Unfortunately, because of our unsuitable climate, it cannot bear fruit.
Another lovely place geocaching brought me to was the elevated field opposite D’Leedon condominium, which was gorgeous by the way.
Gutsy kids waved off my apprehension and just climbed the slope like it’s nothing at all.
What a reward. Splendid view up there!
We all loved this place. Picturesque and serene. We were quite sad to leave even after finding cache. Maybe one day, we can visit this place again.
