Kayaking at Sembawang Park

A couple of weeks back we went kayaking with some friends ..... not at MacRitchie Reservoir, but at Sembawang in the northern part of Singapore.
Two kayaks and five people did not compute!

Two double kayaks and five people still did not compute!

........ but that was perfectly acceptable as I was the one with the camera and equally happy to go wandering around Sembawang Park while Mala, Sylvia, Siem and John went paddling.
We were indebted to Siem for allowing us the use of the kayaks on this absolutely magical day.
Siem is the Assistant Business Manager for SEAGULL - otherwise known as Kim Tuck Huat Boat Builder (KTHBB), a ISO 9001 : 2000 certified company, was established in 1975. With only a handful of dedicated team of skilled craftsman and a passion for excellence, it set out to build traditional small boats in wood. From this small beginning, KTHBB has grown to emerge as one of the leading boat builders in Asia with a proven reputation for unsurpassed quality and performance.

KTHBB has been operating in Singapore for more than 30 years specialising in the construction of IDBF (International Dragon Boat Federation) certified dragon boats, pleasure crafts, workboats & custom made boats. This would include fabrication and modification of steel structures, trailers and other equipment mainly related to the marine environment.

a few safety checks and they were off!
 time to hit the water
didn't take long for the "kayaking machine" 
to get the hang of 
left, right, left, right, left, right,

a fun day for everyone, 
even though a camera, a cell phone, a wallet
and two people went for a very wet unscheduled 'swim'!

and then it was time to eat!!
there is much to blog about for this day,
about the park and about the kayaks.

But will leave that one for my next blog posting!

in the meantime read the blogs on
