Former Tanjong Pagar Railway Station

We made a visit to the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station before its closure last year thanks to @codytheshetland‘s mama’s arrangement. She arranged a visit the Railway Station in November with the Singapore Land Authority for a private visit for the group of us to snap photos! We had quite a fun time (though the weather was really humid).

The Railway Station has since been officially closed from 26th December 2016. Previously, it was opened to the public on public holidays for people to visit. It was always crowded though. And more than a little difficult to take photos (especially with dogs). The last public affair was a Christmas Day celebration (see here for photos of the event by the Singapore Land Authority). It’s now closed for construction works of the new MRT station partially beneath it.

Hello pretty girl

We had approximately 2 hours there and we definitely made full use of it. Read on to see more pictures (many many pictures and a video) of our romp!

Christmas on a Great Street 2014

Mango, Echo, Nugget. Fit for a Christmas postcard ❤

Less than 5 weeks till Christmas!! It’s my favourite “season” of the year! Everyone’s so cheery and everything’s so Christmas-sy. In Singapore, Christmas decorations along Orchard Road are spectacular. And they go up around the start of November, all the way till mid-January usually. 2 years ago in 2013, it was our first Christmas together. I wanted to bring Mango to snap some photos with the display but it was not logistically possible. Fast forward to 2014, I had a plan! And so… I grabbed my best friend who was game enough to come along with her 2 shelties (Echo and Nugget) too!

Swimming at The Wagington

Back in April, we got invited to a little get-together with our Sheltie friends at The Wagington. How do you say no to a Sheltie party? You don’t! So off we went, together with Echo and Nugget (my buddies!).

*Picture heavy post. But many Shelties ahead! 😉 Continue reading

Green Corridor Walk with Shelties!

L-R: Summer, Zappy, Kooky, Waffles, Spirit, Lulu, Mango

Being no stranger to walks along The Green Corridor, this time (last month 🙄) we brought new friends there! One way to keep fit with your dog, is to walk regularly! Walking the same route everyday gets boring. Why not spice it up with a once awhile long walk with some friends in a new environment? Yes, please!

Past entries here and here, with some not blogged about.

So we gathered some Sheltie owners + friends for a little get-together!

Total distance: Approx 4km

Island Hopping: Coney Island on board Pet Cruise!

When you’re stuck on a little island country called Singapore, where she’s not 100% dog-friendly, you soon run out of things to do or places to go with your dog.

That’s what happens to us, which is why we are always on the hunt for something new to do together (human and dog)! I jumped at the chance of taking Pet Cruise (Website|Facebook)! Specially catered to owners and their canine companions to do something a little different! The other time we got onto a boat was to go island hopping, but that was with the general public, who may or may not like dogs (thankfully we met nice people that day). No fear of that happening on the Pet Cruise!

Welcome aboard!

The private boat can take up to 10 passengers, dogs counted as 1 passenger each. We went with LifewithLycanLexie (4pax), SomeWhiteCookie (2pax), Weliveinaflat (2pax) and us (2pax). And we have 10 passengers! Perfect!

Once we decided on the date and time, we contacted Pet Cruise for a confirmation and the day came to set sail! Much thanks to Pet Cruise for the discounted rate. Boat is docked at a Marina Country Club’s jetty in Punggol. Also, you have to choose the location of where you would like to sail to from their list of destinations. We picked Coney Island because it isn’t opened to the general public yet, so it will be an empty stretch of beach! Would like to go somewhere else next, hopefully (to explore everywhere)!

Come follow us on our adventure! Read on! Continue reading
