    It would have been an expensive day trip had you been caught 'sneaking' into the quarry! :-)

    Glad all of you enjoyed your trip! Guess what? I just went to Pulau Ubin this morning and saw the Singlish sign on your photo :) Btw, the village chief celebrated his 100th birthday yesterday and the news came out in Straits Times.
