Labrador National Park (Project National Parks/ Reserves and Project Brunch, Singapore)

A few weeks back, K and I went to the Labrador National Park. We have taken it upon ourselves to visit every national park/reserve there is in Singapore and trek every trail as long as we are here. If you haven’t noticed, there is a page I created for this in my header as Project National Park/ Reserve of Singapore.

K and I are also huge fans of brunches. It also just falls in line with our love for excessive and obnoxiously long hours of sleep over weekends. Why I say obnoxious is because, we sleep so late into the day at times that we need all day brunches in Singapore. Yes, we sometimes break our fast at 3 P.M. And then I was like, “Hey! Let’s do this. Let’s go to all brunch places.”. Nobody would need coaxing because with waffles the colour of gold and pancakes that melt in your mouth and egg benedicts that mean sunrise in your world, nobody would want to miss brunches here. Hence, Project Brunch.

It was just nice that we got to kill two birds with one stone when we went to Labrador National Park. We first devoured nature and then promptly settled for something more human except that the food was ambrosial.

Saying that the weather was amazing will be an understatement. Though a bit humid owing to the beachy locale, we loved being there truly. Spotting random turtles on our way was a bigger plus. If you are here, then I would highly recommend these walks. And honestly, this is what I love about Singapore; not those big malls, though I like them a fair bit too.

We spotted a beautiful cafe (Can you believe I missed the name?) and immediately wanted to try their brunch. It started raining pretty heavily and we could not have found a better place to sit and savour the food. A place where the rain and breeze ever so gently caress your love for life, peals of laughter from a nearby table where girlfriends are meeting up for a surprise birthday party and egg scrambled. And K, ofcourse.

Honestly, I could do with 4 day weekends.

    LOL @ 4-day weekends. Why not 7-day weekends? 😛 I don’t see any photos of animals/turtles? The food definitely looks good. Someday, (If I manage to get an address proof and a passport), I will visit Singapore just for eating all the food out there 🙂

      he he. Arey if all 7 days are weekends, we won’t appreciate the value 😛 Moreover, what’s there to end if everything is a weekend? 😛

      Address proof? As in? Oh get a passport and come off then!

      The last snap is of a turtle under water. Sorry, the photographer is me and am a budding one 😛

    Lovely! I had visited the botanical gardens while I was in Singapore three years back. I loved it.

    National parks are such nice places to do the hikes. I love the greenery and serene environment that surrounds them. Going by your post, I think I will have to make another trip to Singapore soon; just to visit its national parks 🙂

    • kismitoffeebar · April 25, 2013

      Oooooh! Yeah, the Botanical Gardens are beautiful 🙂 I think you will love the other NPs then! Especialy Mc Ritchie reservoir and all those where there are amazing treks to do 🙂

  8. greenboochi · April 25, 2013

    All I can think o right now is lovely, lovely and lovely. You know how much I enjoy walking the trails? Two weekends I spent in Malaysia (long long time ago), I went on nature walks. Seeing your pics brought back fond memories of my trip! It rained so heavily during our trail walk too and guess what, the next thing we know there was a mild earthquake. We ran away from the sea (Penang being island) for the fear of tsunami and laughed our hearts out for being such chickens 😀 I really really wish I get to do similar walks here, hopefully someday! 🙂 And you keep doing this, so that I feel content looking at your pics 🙂

    The food looks so so tempting, I am drooling over my keyboard. You made me hungry Kismi, not fair! 😀

    • kismitoffeebar · April 25, 2013

      hehehehe GB ! That must have been so memorable 🙂 You come girl – let’s walk the trails together. Penang is so so beautiful! Walking the trails must have been one awesome experience.
      I am drooling at my own pics too. Nothing like a great brunch 🙂 Thanks GB 🙂

  9. The Girl Next Door · April 25, 2013

    LOvely pics, both of the cafe and of the park. 🙂 I would surely love to do the walks whenever I visit Singapore! Someday…. Sigh!

    I love the sound of Project Brunch and Project National Parks/Reserves. I am thinking of starting a desi version of it with the OH here. 😀

    • kismitoffeebar · April 25, 2013

    My way would be the breakfast, then brunch and then lunch 😛
    I love hikes and trails, we have combed most of the places surrounding us, the only thing which chickens the family out is trekking, sigh!
    Rains and greens and food….I say you are damn lucky girl 🙂

    • kismitoffeebar · April 30, 2013

      🙂 Thank God for my good fortune 🙂

      Awesome that you have tried so many trains Visha! Breakfast, brunch and lunch? Hmmm. At your foodie best, aren’t you? 😛

      Trekking is super fun. Hope you get to do it soon!
