A visit to Upper Seletar Reservoir
On 23 May 2009 (Sat), I needed a quiet and spacious place to reflect and to have some respite. Somehow, I got my way to Upper Seletar Reservoir. Bus service 138 would take one from Ang Mo Kio bus interchange to the Upper Seletar Reservoir. Otherwise, the other best way to reach the Upper Seletar Reservoir would be by car.
There is a look-out tower that looks quite like an upright space-shuttle. I climbed up the tower and that proved to be a fairly manageable task. The reservoir is located within the Central Water Catchment area, and up at the viewing gallery of the tower, one could see vast areas of tropical forest surrounding the reservoir.
The Upper Seletar Reservoir was relatively tranquil place to be at. I sat on one of the benches, watching the changing evening skies.
This peaceful reservoir has a history that dates back to 1920. Information on its history can be found here: http://infopedia.nl.sg/articles/SIP_562_2005-01-19.html
In the meantime, I shall just marvel at the photo of the evening skies.
