The gym I use is undergoing renovation and the other 4 nearby gyms have stupid short term pricing so I've been just doing an hour or so walk daily to keep a bit fit.

 

Anyway I walked around Pandan Reservoir today, that's an hour walk, plus the 30 minutes to get there and the 30 minutes back.

Nice walk, there are quite a few nice walks around Clementi.

 

But around the reservoir I saw what must have been a 3 meter long Monitor Lizard.

In fact it was sooo big I thought it might be a Komodo Dragon.

Before I could get my camera out of my back pack the Monitor slid off the rocks into the reservoir.  It made an awful lot of splash.

Saw a smaller Monitor later on maybe one meter long.

 

I'll have the camera ready in future but don't expect to see it again.

You spend 1 hour travelling to pandan reservior to walk walk? Anyway, pandan reservoir nice place to go walk and jog, but not much shelter along the way, so can get quite hot when the sun is hot and no where to run if it rains suddenly. Lol.

Walked there and back.

 

Total 2hr 15 min walking.

Also Bus 78 from Clementi Central.

 

Must have seen over 100 canoes in area alongside reservoir and 4 dragon boats and maybe 40 or more rowing skulls .

 

My HDB overlooks from a distance the reservoir but I've never ever seen any of these boats out on it.

Always thought it would be good for small sailing boat racing as well.

There is a carpark at the reservoir itself. If not there are also plenty of parking across the road at those HDB flats.
