At the very eastern end of the island, literally at land’s end is the town of Pasir Ris. In the Malay language, “Pasir” means sand. Translated into English the town is also known as White sands, which might be a reference to the beach where Mel took an early morning walk to view the sunrise one Sunday morning.
And it was a fabulous morning walking along the park that lines the sea. Beyond all that water is actually Singapore’s largest offshore island – Pulau Ubin, or granite island. Though soon to be dwarfed by Pulau Tekong’s reclaimation.
For some reason Pasir Ris park has a lot of free ranging chicken foraging with little fear of people… some might suspect fowl play here as these birds appear to have staked out territories which they defend quite robustly…
