I started walking in January this year and go about four to five times a week.  I love walking around the neighbourhood with all these gorgeous plants and trees, as well as keeping me fit I am also uplifted by the time I get home.

For more information on the Black & White Houses, take a look at Remembersingapore,  a WordPress site I have just discovered!

      The plants and trees are amazing, it’s nicknamed ‘The Garden City’ and it really is green for a big city! Makes living here more bearable for us ‘country girl’ types.. 🙂
