    Here're some (crappy) iPhone pics taken on the move.

    BUKIT BROWN CEMETERY


    Notice board on gate pillar. Not that anyone is keeping the gate locked after 5.30pm. Perhaps it's to remind the inhabitants their visiting hours.
    Light: SC600


    Gate that is so stereotypical. All we need is some bats to fly overhead to complete the picture.
    Light: SC600


    Road, left and right are tombstones. Not sure who's in front, probably James or Andy or.....
    Light: Thrunite TN12


    Suddenly, someone spoiled the mood. My spider sense told me I should have brought a rope, a stout one.
    Light: see next pic


    Polarion Night Reaper. Triode, i hate you....


    Ok, I have to admit, it's impressive. Kind of makes me want to do the lightsaber noise.


    Subject: Some tombstones, you can differentiate the rich from the poor.
    Light: Different lights


    More tombstones
    Light: I think it was Fenix LD15


    James here getting a sunburn from the Polarion.


    Very peculiar white leaves scattered on the ground in just one particular area.
    Light: SC600


    Little Miss Muffet's BIG friend.
    Light: Think it was Sore-eyez's E1L


    We exited the cemetery and found that the Garmen's plan has already commenced. This place will NOT be here much longer, I'm afraid.


    On our way to have a drink, we spotted a motorized bicycle. Probably owned by David.


    Hoard of the day. No, no one used the beer bottle as a lamp yesterday. To be honest, except for someone-who-spoiled-the-market, I'm surprised we didn't bring a lot of firepower considering the location we were going. For me, I was trying to keep the weight down to the minimum, hence I didn't bring my triple XM-L, XM-L thrower and all. All in all, this gathering has the nicest outdoor temperature I've experienced albeit the moonlight kind of dampened the thing but not that much.

    Unfortunately we got no ropes to tie him onto a tree.
    Polarion? Did I hear Polarion?!

    So when you organizing an outing?

    Enjoyable trip guys. Quite fun it is and I like the coffeeshop chap after the trip.

    Zeruel, nice of you to share the photos from your iPhone. I am quite sure the guy standing in front is me as I was trying to keep a distance from being scorched by the Polarion. I am sorry guys that I did not pack my camera along on this trip due to laziness on my part.

    I am sure you guys have seen, it was embarrassing to be caught by my client for not taking on a job and telling him that I am busy and only to be seen with you guys chatting happily in Adam Food Centre... The truth is I had had enough of missing those previous trips that was organized due to jobs and thought that I should really enjoy myself this time round and get to know you guys better.

    Hope this Nokia with AF 5MP and Carl Zeiss Tessar 2.8/4.7 lens works :

    You can get lost in this 180 yr old cemetery where the tombstones are mostly jumbled up and surrounded by secondary forest :


    The Bt Brown conservationists had started cataloguing the better organised graves and placed numbered markers to note each location :


    Some graves have been well-kept and refurbished by the descendants whereas others are forgotten and even consumed by the jungle :


    The forest trees are as old as the earliest tombstone dating 1833 AD like this Weeping Fig Tree with gnarly roots :


    Flashaholics' shootout undertaken in the cemetery :


    Triode lights up the grave site :

    You are welcome. Hope you have a nice walk in my neighborhood. I am sure you enjoyed the sea breeze.

    Stong, although I can't make it this round, the meeting place for makan is opposite the Beauty World Bldg which is beside Bt Timah Shopping Centre. The 2 storey food centre is above a wet market. This location is also located after King Albert Park beside the Shell Station. Correct me if I am wrong, guys!

    hmmm, i only know the wet market/food centre is near a Shell petrol station, the nearest & most obvious landmark. he McDonald's at King Albert park is not so visible from the market.

    other landmarks include P.I.E. flyover south of the market, Pei Hwa Presby Primary School behind Shell.

    must i carry ---> ?

    Thanks Taipan and Sore-eyez for the direction.

    Hi Sore-Eyez, there is not a need for you to carry the I Love CPF Sign. Just get one of our brother and stand by the road side with his torch on strobe mode will be enough.

    He He.

    hi folks, i am cancelling the outing tomorrow as it was rainging for hours today. i am not keen on getting my shoes all muddy or risk someone slipping in the trails. i know its not a concern for some guys here, but not me.

    sorry guys, some other time perhaps.

    Actually, there are preferably some limitations to the size of such gatherings. It can make it rather challenging for the designated organiser to PM, email and sms so many. Also depends on pecularities of venue. Most of these places typically have narrow paths and undulating trails which will take even more hours to cover safely if the human chain is too long. Imagine going in and coming out with injuries or worse still, missing head count!

    Didn't know this thread was still on-going! Someone in Singapore's got a Night Reaper!

    HIDs aren't much fun in groups though... I personally find lights in the 200-500 max lumen range to be bright enough to see surroundings while dark enough to still keep the environment reasonably mysterious!

    Will try checking into this forum more often and will post invitations whenever I decide to head to MacRitchie for a fun night. I recently went there impromptu for a hours walk and spotted a yellow-black snake hunting on the surface of the waters. Followed it around for over 20 minutes. That was pretty cool!
