peaceful...

i’m not a very outdoorsy person… but i’m not totally opposed to doing outdoorsy stuff (of course not the hardcore sort)… so babe was quite surprised when i suggested camping… he was like ‘huh i tot u din like outdoor activities’… -_-” but i managed to convince him that the occasional camping trip was not THAT bad…

we got a four-man tent frm carrefour for around 30bucks and two sleeping bags (we tot it would be freezing… and the bags seemed pretty good in the ‘air-conditioned’ comfort of the shopping mall…) and planned for an overnighter in one of the parks in singapore… which was last weekend…

however we did not count on saturday being probably like the WARMEST DAY in june (okay not official lah.. but it felt like that)… there was no breeze and the air was very warm… it was hard to fall asleep in the tent…

not only that… we discovered that singapore’s real estate is pretty precious… so much so that even camping grounds were hard to come by! the park we went is usually pretty deserted… but last saturday it was SUPER CROWDED!! we had to walk a distance before we found a nice spot to camp/sleep for the night…

took a while to set up the tent and shifting it so that the ‘neighbours’ would not feel uncomfortable with us being too near… saw many tents, some families even brought a mini bbq set for themselves…

both of us were tired but sleep was a bit difficult… since it was so warm and there was no breeze (still air!!) so we were lying in the tent trying to get some breeze in by flapping the sides of the tent… what compounded the situation was that we didn’t want to open the door coz of the insects… =/ which led to babe’s comments that we must be the whiniest campers around… spent all the time complaining abt the heat… ahhaha

anyway managed to fall asleep though i did wake up three times in the night… feeling warm and then feeling super cold (probably in the early hours of dawn…) but when i woke up at 7 plus in the morning… the air was cool and fresh and the skies were gorgeous… mmm sat around for half hour taking photos and decided to pack up and go for breakfast at ikea (a first for both of us!) =D a few more photos in my flickr set

so if you’re thinking whether to go camp or not.. i’ll say just go for it! just remember to bring aircon… ahhahaha
