The No Plans Weekend (Part 2)

Before I continue with this post, just to let you know, a small announcement will be made at the end of it.  Will it be like some sort of mega news?  Hmm??......... not sure? I guess you'll find out soon.

And so the next day, we set out on our journey to KK Wetland Centre.  Hooray!!..... the no plans weekend became with plans.    

Information board at entrance
Amazing facts about the wetland
Some don'ts when entering the wetland
You remember about the cute tiny crabs which I mentioned earlier?  Those crabs are known as:

To know Mr. Crab is to understand him....... wink!
Unlike Kellybays, this wetland is more cooling and pleasant to stroll about.  I love the many tall and mature mangrove trees as they provide lots of shades .  NO MORE dramatic dracula act (Arrrrgh!! *while blocking away from the sun*). 

Lovely planks walk
The centre is a great place for light strolling.  The stroll is about 45 minutes to an hour.  Very pleasant and easing.  Just the lush green mangrove jungle and wetland species accompanying you.

Bird watching and big shell-y living thing among the smaller shells
About half and hour or so walk later, we came to this tower:

The look-out tower
On top of this tower you have a bird's eye view of the wetland centre.  A different perspective I should say.

Tall commercial and residential buildings outside of the centre
I vividly remembered of myself sowing a baby mangrove tree plant few years back while joining my office's green campaign.  Yet I failed to recall where the area was.  I think its here:

"X" marks the spot
The stairs down the tower was steep.  Cheeky was psycho-ing himself to overcome his fear of heights.  YES, THAT KID IS AFRAID OF HEIGHTS!!  Yet he managed to reach the top of the tower.  Unfortunately and ironically, the decending part was abit dramatic with him chanting all the way down.  *I'm not afraid, I can do this.  I'm not afraid, I can do this.*  With him safely landed on the last step of the stairs was a major achievement for him.  Clap Clap, another great accomplishment by Cheeky.  Sob, sob, my boy is growing up...... *smiling while weeping*.

The final stretch of the walk:

muddy walkway.... ewww.  My shoes!!!
The nursery zone confirmed my earlier guessing of my office's greening effort area.  'Coz Beary said so ....... he was there during that effort.  

I'm beginning to feel the lethargic of inserting all these photos.  I've got a BUNCH more!!!  
Think I'll fast forward and end with this pic:

Bliss, no more muddy feet.
My verdict on this walk is: I LUV IT!! Great, light, sweat producing, 1 hour strolling.  Light exercise for me.   

Now, at the beginning of this post, I mentioned plans with an S, so besides leisure strolling, we included a visit to dear FIL too.
