Walk-a-Jog (Labrador Park)

8 August 2016

30th July 2016 9.30 AM, members of the IOSH Singapore Branch took a little time out of their busy schedule to have a brisk walk at Labrador Park. Tender hints of sunshine and the constant gentle breeze made the walk extremely pleasurable. Our Branch Chairman, Mr. Bhupendra Singh Baliyan, led us through a thorough warm up from head to toe and we were off to a great start.

Along the way, we got to see war relics from World War II nestled within the tranquil nature reserve. Standing between us is a six inch quick firing canon aimed seawards, originally intended as defence from coastal attacks.

The leisure stroll continued onto Bukit Chermin Boardwalk which is elevated over the sea. Light lapping sound of the waves calmed our senses.We also got to appreciate the stunning architecture of Reflections Condominium and were awed by the spectacular view of yachts docked at the marina. The route ended at Harbour front MRT. Lush surroundings and great conversations along the way certainly made the 4.7 KM route seem too short. Finally, the group hydrated with fresh fruit juice and a healthy bite at Simply Wraps. The walk left us feeling refreshed for the rest of the day.

“As a health and safety practitioner, it is paramount to take good care of your own health first before you can effectively help others. We hope members commit time to exercise and we will be more than happy to have you join us in our upcoming walks. We promise it’ll be nothing strenuous, not exactly a walk-a-jog, it’s more of a walk-and-talk. Very lighthearted and therapeutic.” said Mr Baliyan.

Kicking yourself for missing this event? Not to worry! We will revisit this route again after the park connector is complete and we will be able to walk seamlessly all the way to Sentosa!
