Jules #269 - @ Punggol Waterway

Happy Hari Raya Haji Folks
Today we are bringing Jules to Punggol!

Punggol was once a fishing village littered with pig and
poultry farms set alongside vegetable plantations. Today, its new residential town is set to capitalise on what remains of this lovely setting. The waterway traversing the town centre and the coastal promenade are pleasant additions to the breezy open spacesand seafood restaurants.
*Interesting Fact: Punggol, in Malay, means 'hurling sticks at the branches of fruit trees to bring them down to the ground', perhaps referring to the area as a fruit-growing district years ago or as a rendezvous for wholesale fruit agents.

The Waterway runs through the Punggol Waterway Park, and both serve to increase park and water frontage for the housing estate and provide a green respite for residents.  Designed with four themes to cater to residents of all ages, the park also provides residents opportunities for leisure activities such as jogging and cycling which can be carried out along the promenade at both sides of the waterway.

Managed to find a spot for our picnic. It was a "kelong" style hut perched right at the top and hubs had to carry the stroller all the way up. I guess it was one of the few shady sheltered areas in Punggol Waterway. Hopefully there will be more of these huts if not it's really very hot and difficult for families like us to walk the waterway.

Our Picnic basket contained Prawn Paste chicken wings which hubs marinated the night before and used the air fryer this morning. Salad by me cos im looking after Jules and Spaghetti by Hubs again!
