best laid plans

Happy Place, Happy Space

We set out on this Sunday morning bound for the Church of the Holy Cross in the Clementi/Sunset Way neighbourhood, as part of our SG Camino efforts. We plotted a loop, starting at Sunset Way, heading west on the Ulu Pandan Park Connector.

After a couple of kilometres, it became apparent that there were no exits on this canal path. Loving Husband quiped that we might not actually make it to church.

We shrugged and continued on the park connector path as it veered away from our planned route.

At the point where the pavement turned to clay, we noticed a crowd of people across from Sungei Ulu Pandan. Turns out they were watching out for Grey-headed Fish Eagles.

We loved that we had a clay track to run on – it was soft, comfortable, and it was still relatively overcast. There weren’t too many people using it as well.

A good look at the same eagles which I could barely make out in the treeline

As the year is coming to a close, here is a compilation of photos and videos of our beautiful Grey-headed fish eagles duo of Ulu Pandan. Dedicated to Bobo and Momo and the community for keeping us sane in the year of the pandemic.

Dedication from the photographer who put together this video. All images are captured in 2020.

We will go to church on another day.


Reading your Joyful Posts brings me to my happy place. I hope having them in one place makes it easier for you to find when you need a bit of happy therapy, too.

If you would like to join in, ping back to this post and I will include you next week.
