57) A ride to Coney Island

Posted on


corney island 02

Pulau Serangoon, also known as Coney Island in Singapore.  It is a 45-hectare in size and located off the north-eastern coast of the Singapore mainland.  Back in about 30 years ago, you still be able to make your own way when the tide is low, as the closest distant to the shore is just about 100metres.  Fun seekers will just ignore this and have their fun in this sunny island.

Currently, the island is closed for future quality housing developments.  The only residents here are the coniferous trees and the breeze shuttling between trees.  While some visitors watch over the waters with approving admiration.

Coming in by Waterway@Punggol direction, a red-soil route welcome you like the red carpet.

Pine trees, ripples with the wide horizon make up an account for Coney Island beyond words.

A pavilion with an irregular arc comes with semi-open concept allows viewers to capture the beautiful scenery at the same time to hide away from the rain and sun.

The inner side of the arc, laid with reflective aluminum ceilings, mirror the bleeding red ground and turn him to a blush!

Rest enough for the day, let’s carry on with the red carpet trail and explore the next destination.

      I try to be doing some meaningful stuff each day and live meaningfully! Rather than sitting in the office earning 8 to 5 salary!
      But this is just me! I might be the rare, the weird, the third encounter! Haha!
      Karen, you are great writer too!
      Is my honor to know you! Cheers!

    The place looks like an idyllic getaway for some quiet reflection. I like the look of the red path. It looks inviting. How long is it? Is it at least a mile?

    The modern arc looks cool too! Thanks for taking us with you.

      Sydney Fong responded:
      January 29, 2013 at 12:33 am

      To what I feel, it could be more than a mile!
      Thank you for liking my post so much!
      Let’s move on to next destination! Cheers!

    Your Coney Island is a lot more pretty than the one in New York – it looks to be a beautiful place to rest and reflect on things.

      Sydney Fong responded:
      January 29, 2013 at 11:38 am

      Sadly, it is not open for the public, if not I’ll be the first one who hike and camp there, be a forest survivor there! 🙂
      But I heard there are going to be housing developments there that take up half the land and leave and other for the green.
      Not to bad for me, I still manage to get a half tree! gege!
      The coney Island in New York is just another form of forest! Haha! 🙂

      Thanks, if you happen to see the moon rising behind the forest! You might stunned by the scene!
      But, I didn’t brought my camera along, it’s such a waste!
      Never mind, my heart is always there! 🙂
      Have a nice day!
