About Me

Hi! Thanks for dropping by. My name is Haslinda or hasayang in this blog. Pictures and travel are two of my favourite things.  This blog is for sharing of travel tips of the places travelled. As for photography, most have been learnt through trial and error.  Everyday I am learning new things.

I have been visiting and cycling at the Lorong Halus Wetland, Sengkang Riverside Park, the Sengkang and Punggol Park Connector Network and Punggol Beach regularly. There are many articles and pictures on these places posted here.

This is a photo heavy site. Hope you enjoy looking at the photos. 🙂

Thanks for visiting!

    Anymore latest pics of Punggol promenade newly completely areas would be appreciated. We we cant explore at this moment because of new baby. I think the contractors are taking a long time to finish the walking path from Punggol Jetty to Halus Bridge. It should be finished by now I hope. Last month I walk around that place its still not ready.

    Nice blog, and photos too, Thank you Hasayang. 🙂

      Hi Jean. Will post those pictures 🙂 From what I see, that section at the Punggol Jetty and Beach are ready but the ones at the Lorong Halus end are still under construction. Last I heard, it will be ready by September. Here’s to hoping ;0

    Hi Haslinda! I chanced upon your blog while googling for a way to get to Punggol Waterway and Punggol Promenade. I did not realise that it was indeed very near where I am residing (i.e. Punggol Road and it’s just 2 stops away from Punggol Bus Interchange).

    I simply love the pictures that you took at the Waterway and Promenade. Lovely,lovely! Very very good photography too! Hope to see more of your beautiful pictures that you took of the Waterway and Promenade and Punggol Beach at your blog! =)

    Have a great day ahead!!

      Hi Shaa! You make my day 🙂 Thanks for your lovely comments. Punggol 21 is slowly shaping up to its promise. Get out there and take the time to enjoy the lovely parks in your premises. If you have time, drop by to Punggol Beach tomorrow. Not sure what is happening but they are building tents there. Some event going on. See if you can catch it, if not, simply enjoy the lovely views.

      Have a great weekend!

    Dear Haslinda,
    great blog with plenty of quality photos.
    Good Job & Best Regards,


    Could you pls provide me the direction to the ‘Jewel’ of Punggol waterway starting from MRT @PUNGGOL Station?Thanks!

    • hasayang

      Hi Linkway88. Thanks for visiting and your lovely comments. 🙂

      I am guessing you are referring to the Jewel Bridge. This is the waterway facing Punggol Reservoir.

      Map for reference (click and drag on the map to see more views):

      From Punggol MRT, walk along Punggol Central to reach the central park of Punggol Waterway. You can also alight at Sam Kee LRT and walk down to reach the central area. Keep a look out for the arch bridge at Punggol Walk. Walk under the bridge, further down to reach the Jewel Bridge. It is a good place to take sunset photos here.

      Have fun!

        Dear hasayang,
        Thanks for your direction to ‘The Jewel’.
        BTW,I was there at Punggol MRT on two separate occassions.
        1st to visit Punggol point and
        2nd to see Arch Bridge.I walked down the grass-land and lost direction to the Jewel.So could you kindly
        spare a little efforts to guide me from here onwards please…..
        “…….Keep a look out for the arch bridge at Punggol Walk. Walk under the bridge, further down to reach the Jewel Bridge.[ my question is walk towards the right or the left inorder to reach The Jewel,
        thanks very much.

    Sorry to hear that, Linkway 88. By the grass-land, is that the open field next to the MRT? In that case, do you see this arch bridge in this picture?

    Arch Bridge

    If yes, you are in the correct place. If taking LRT, stop at Sam Kee Station. You can see the suspension bridge once you cross the street to reach Punggol Waterway. Keep left to see the waterfalls at Heartwave Wall. The arch bridge is in the opposite direction.

    Walk towards the arch bridge. This map is from the HDB Infoweb :

    Punggol Waterway Fiesta

    Do you see the purple color icon “Ceremony Site”? On the bottom left frame of the map. Follow the water canals on the left till the end. That is the direction of the Jewel Bridge. Let me know if you find it or if you need more directions.

    All the best!

      Dear hasayang,

      Thanks very much for your guide to The Jewel. I hope to return to explore The Jewel with the understanding from your map.BTW,is The Jewel anywhere indicated in the Punggol Waterway Fiesta’s map?

      Best Regards,

      • hasayang

        November 14, 2011 at 10:10 pm

        Afraid not, linkway88. In fact, there is no signboard of the different bridges name on the actual sites. The Punggol Waterway Fiesta map only shows the central portion of the waterway. The Jewel Bridge is on the left while on the right is the direction to Punggol Promenade opposite Lorong Halus Wetland (not seen in the map). Click and drag on the street directory map to see more things on the left or right. The different names of the bridges can be found at the
        HDB Infoweb

    Hi Does anyone know can paddle boat in Punggol waterway? Thansk

    • hasayang

      October 26, 2012 at 8:40 am

      For Thura and everyone wondering, there is no kayaking service at Punggol Waterway yet. Those kayaks are only seen during special events like family day, official opening, etc. I heard rumors of a SAFRA clubhouse operating here. Not confirmed. Will post those news as soon I hear them. I am just as interested. 🙂

    I am glad to have stumbled here by chance to see the scenes in Singapore. They can hardly be recognised against the background of scenes familiar to me in the 1960’s.How time flies. I love those days.

    • hasayang

      November 29, 2013 at 9:09 pm

      Hi Almanar. Thanks for dropping by. Things have changed dramatically from 1960s to 2013. Some old things still remain and under conservation. Others are gone and something else takes its place. Part of the purpose of this blog is to record present sights now before everything changes. Hope it gives insights on what was past, present and maybe things to be. Cheers!.
