I was chased by dogs this morning. Again.
I had always wanted to climb up here and see the view from high above. This morning I got my wish. Spend plenty of time exploring the forest edge at the top of the hill. I was exactly at this point that I heard dogs barking and they came rushing to where I was.
That is the LRT tract with Sam Kee LRT Station in the distance. Underneath the LRT tract, you can see the bridge linking the waterway. That was where the dogs came from. There were four of them and only one of me. Better get moving. They must had considered this section as their territory. Maybe that place was their shelter.
I just walked away slow and steady and they didn’t chase. Animals don’t attack people without provocation. The worst thing a person can do is run. Not good, just natural instinct to chase something in flight. Don’t be afraid, folks. Treat animals with kindness and they won’t hurt you and trust your instinct when to run, walk away or stand your ground.
That aside, I hope you like that view. Empty grassland like that don’t stay empty for long. Sooner or later an EC, condo or flats will be built. What a view that will be! Meanwhile, appreciate the little pockets of forested areas that we still have before they are gone forever.
Have a great weekend!
