It’s a hike and I had a great workout! And we were sweating like crazy, not exaggerating I sweat as though I had done a 10km run, though it’s a 6.5km hike/walk! I jio-ed Eleanor and Rey on a weekend to Bukit Timah Hill 😍

It’s crowded with families bringing along their kids for some leisure stroll, groups of friends hanging out doing something healthy together and also hardcore runners chionging up the slopes looked like they are training for something major πŸ’ͺ

It’s awesome to do something other than running at times. It’s enjoyable to hold a positive attitude, taking it slow to enjoy and chill as well as to appreciate the scenery, the greenery and chit chat while we hike ❀

Fun fact: Bukit Timah Hill Summit is the highest natural point in Singapore 😍

I’m so glad that JustMove! Asia extended the deadline of the challenge till the end of 2019 so I can still submit the rest of the pending runs without rushing! Phew! There’s currently 13 Challenges and I’d only completed 4 inclusive of this Bukit Timah Hill Summit Challenge πŸ˜† And I still have 9 more to go to complete my set of medal collection! πŸ’ͺ You may still register for the challenges here and earn these beautiful iconic medals of places of attraction in Singapore 😍


There’s different hiking routes to the summit of Bukit Timah Hill but I’d always used the easiest “red” trail πŸ˜† There’s other route such as Yellow, green and blue as well which I want to try next time 😍 Though I’ve been to BTH no lesser than 20 times, there’s this Hindhede Quarry which I’d never heard of until this trip with Eleanor till she mentioned about it πŸ˜‚

The nearest MRT station is Beauty World and even from there to the Bukit Timah Hill Summit is less than 2km. There’s a short cut to reach the summit at the red trail which is to climb the steps. Though the distance to reach the summit would be shorter, but it’s definitely a tougher climb because the steps were longer in height than normal steps and one need to have good pair of knees to climb it πŸ˜† But it surely is a good exercise 😁

Once we reached the summit, we took the exit route towards Dairy Farm as we decided to detour to Singapore Quarry before we end our hike at the Rail Mall near Hillview MRT station for Prata πŸ˜‹ There’s quite a couple of shops for makan there.

The Singapore Quarry is another beautiful place around the area to explore and visit. It’s less strenuous to walk there and I always enjoyed watching the fishes there swim around ❀

Just nearby there’s this super pretty place along The Rail Corridor just steps away from the Rail Mall. Do stop by there to take some awesome photos before leaving 😍
