Pulau Ubin


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.IMG_6445

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  -.-

 Towards the end of the day as we headed back to the jetty, we met up with a family of wild boars as they source for food.
