I thought after cycling for some time, I knew the road better. Hahaha.... I was wrong!!!
This morning my period came. I had a terrible stomach cramp in the afternoon during the meeting and had a headache afterwards. Since I came back home early where the sky was all still bright, I decided to find a way to forget all my pain and do the thing I love, which was cycling.
Reaching home, I had a quick dinner and then took my bicycle out. It was cloudy and the sun was no where to be seen. The sunset time had over too. But I didn't care. I just wanted to loosen myself. Hope that my headache would have gone after cycling.

I chose the same route as yesterday, which was to the Sunset bridge. As expected, no sun was found. It had been swallowed up by the sea again. When riding down from the bridge, I noticed that there was a road that leading to somewhere, somewhere I'd never been before. I saw few people heading into that direction.
|After sunset - love the reddish sky :)|
Since I had no plan, I followed that road. The road was well built with lights turned on at the side. Only that the road level was too low so there were many areas where the water was flowing down to River. When I passed the area, the water would splashed on my legs and back part of my clothes.
The road led me to Sengkang Riverside, as the direction's name was painted on top of the road. It was quite a long road. But it seemed that many people know the road well. I noticed that on this road, more young people did the exercise, mainly running and to tell you, they were really running!!! Unlike in the morning time, I saw more older people running (more walking actually) and exercising. Hehehe... So that was one of the differences between young and older people :D
I kept following the road and let myself getting lost. I had no idea where I was. I passed through the stadium but I'd never seen it before until the road was cut at the junction where I could see the petrol kiosk nearby. Oh... I was lost! So I decided to turn back and followed the road back from where I came from.
I only knew that I was riding along the river. At the other side of the river I could see many houses (landed property), that only riches could afford to buy in Singapore. While riding it slowly, I took a look and imagined how it felt like to stay in there. Hahaha... I mean, this type of houses are common in Malaysia and Indonesia. But to stay at the house where the river is at the back of your house, that what made me wondered how nice it would be. Hehe...
It was great experience. It took me an hour plus for the whole journey. Once reached home, I took a bath and made my self fresh again. Too bad the headache was still around but I could de-stress for a while. There were lots of birds flying around and more small flies flying around too. I had to keep my mouth shut while riding to ensure I didn't eat any of it haha....

Sunrise route: Punggol Waterway Park - Lorong Halus Wetland - Punggol Park
Next time I will go there again and perhaps exploring the other areas as well. Just found the map in Internet and it connected many places. Wow!!! One day I should try to go one whole round but hope will find a company so I won't get lost alone :P
