I headed down to Pulau Ubin a few months ago simply ’cause we didn’t know what to do that day. It’s a small island near Singapore that has a rustic feel to it since it is one of the two places in Singapore where we can get a glimpse into Kampung life.
Pulau Ubin literally means granite island in Malay. As its name suggests, there exists a number of abandoned quarries in the area.
It was a gloomy day when we arrived by boat (from Changi Village) to the island. Having been here two times, we took a leisurely stroll along the beach as we enjoy the breeze brought in by a possible thunderstorm. Yes, I don’t know what we were thinking when we went to the island with a lack of shelters when it was going to rain.
From the beach, we wandered to some fruit plantation and aimlessly followed an unknown path. It was also the first time I’ve ever seen a durian tree. Too bad it was not durian season. 😉 I also shockingly discovered that pomelos grow on trees and not close and near to the ground like a watermelon. I don’t even know where I got the idea that pomelo grow close to the ground -.-
