What: Hiking at MacRitchie Treetop Walk

When: 27 July 2014

Where: MacRitchie Reservoir

Participants: Adelyn, Allan, Angela, Bi Hui, Daphne, Edith, Jiamin, Kexin, Lixian, Madeline, Melissa, Phyllis, Rebecca, Sandra, Xing Xian, Yanling, Yun Teng, Xinyi


Lixian, Participant:

It was raining 2 hours before our meeting time and I was quite disappointed that my virgin hike in Singapore would thus be cancelled.. Thankfully though, it stopped raining at around 9.40 and true to the #rainorshinerbkdisouttoplay hashtag on RBKD’s Instagram posts, we were on our way to Macritchie from different parts of the island (aka our respective homes) after 2 hours of postponement.

To be honest, like how many new members would have probably felt, I went for the IPC with much apprehension, from not knowing if I would be able to fit in with members who have known each other for years and been through rain and sunshine, to imagining all sorts of awkward situations that could arise before/during/after the hike and scaring myself subsequently. (Yes, I tend to think a lot, a lot of nonsense at that.)

I think I speak for all of us – at the end of it all, I was glad I took that step forward. Throughout the 5-hours long of trudging along the way, there were endless laughter from the 18 of us, endless topics raised and it just felt warm and welcoming that everyone was making the effort to strike conversations with each other to better know each other.… It was a pleasant hike, really, despite the hot and humid weather that made the journey slightly more arduous.. :P

Thank you to the committee for coming up with such an atypical activity (I mean, who would think of going to Macritchie Treetop Walk for a hike as a FC) for us to know each other better and make friends, and thank you to Mr Rain for holding back your tears of joy/sadness for that afternoon. :)

P.S Something really interesting (in my opinion) that I would like to share: so a few of us were lagging behind at the back during the last leg of the hike to take some scenic pictures of Macritchie, and we came across this troop of monkeys. I managed to take a clear shot of a monkey which I thought was happily flashing his teeth and posing for my picture and was so proud of myself…. Until one week later when I showed my brother the picture, he said that the monkey was showing signs of aggression. *oops* 笑里藏刀 is really the apt phrase for this cheeky monkey man. (For those who may come across monkeys in future i-don’t-know-wherewhenhow, be on your toes when you see monkeys giving you the wide grin!)


Madeline, Participant:

I woke up to the worst sound you could possibly hear on the morning of a treetop walk IPC – really really heavy rain. But thankfully the rain cleared after a few hours and we could carry on with the IPC :) Armed with insect repellent, sunblock, food, drinks & a whole bag of bananas Xinyi bought for all of us, we proceeded on with the hike.

And as per RBKD style, it wasn’t long before the selfie stick came out and we were taking group selfies every time an opportunity arose. We even took one in the middle of the narrow suspension bridge & had to arrange ourselves by height so that we could all be seen in the photo haha.

The main highlight of the whole hike was the treetop walk, but in my opinion the actual treetop bridge was way too short and the amount of walking we did getting there & back was way too long! (cue chorus of ‘are we there yet’s and ‘I’m so tired’s from everyone) We did see pretty interesting things along the way though – monkeys, really scenic views of the reservoir, and even a random tower that Lixian & I climbed up (leaving the rest of the tired folks below).

Despite the really hot weather and seemingly never-ending walk out of the reservoir, I had a really enjoyable day meeting new and old members alike & getting to know everyone much better :)

What: RBKD SG Day Tour

When: 19 July 2014

Where: SPF Heritage Centre, LTA Gallery & Geylang Serai Market

Participants: Bi Hui, Candice, Jiamin, Lionel, Madeline, Melissa, Peijun, Phyllis, Shu Pei, Xin Jie, Xinyi, Yanping, Yeeling, Yunxian, Zhiqing


Phyllis, on SPF Heritage Centre:

This “SG day trip” to the Singapore Police Force Heritage Gallery and LTA Gallery is not our conventional “let’s-go-out-to-play” kind of IPC, but it was still filled with laughter and fun nonetheless!

Upon entering the gallery, we were introduced to the various core values (well I guess most of us should know what it is without having to go to the museum haha), ranks and even weapons of the police force. We had the opportunity to roam around the place on our own to check out the history of the police force as well. Quite an eye opener I would say.

This guided tour was certainly made more lively with our tour guide Mr Richard. He was really entertaining and bubbly throughout the tour!


Lionel, on LTA Gallery:

LT Gallery, a place which most people who not have heard of known of. This is the Land Transport Gallery, managed by the Land Transport Authority of Singapore, showcasing the history of our nation’s transport system, as well as the transport vision for tomorrow. While it is not uncommon for people to feedback that trains are very crowded today, the transports of the past were worse than what we have today.

Indeed, visiting the gallery gave an insight to the challenges of meeting transportation needs of everyone, as well as understand how Singapore’s transportation means have progressed over the years. Kudos to the organisers for finding such a rare gem!


Melissa, on Geylang Serai Market:

I had a blast at the Geylang Serai night market with RBKD! We weaved through the shops, the food, and the crowd, soaking up the festivities and somehow managed not to lose anyone!

I actually have a personal tradition, which is that I have Ramly burgers once a year. And I would always have that once-a-year only burger at the Hari Raya market, so I was really excited that despite studying overseas this year I still managed to continue with my tradition.

Looking for a place to have dinner was even more fun because it was so spontaneous. Many restaurants were already “reserved” by those waiting to break-fast, so I think we walked for an hour before finding a place to eat. I didn’t feel tired until we finally sat down haha!

After dinner, I was really craving durian (the real thing, not puffs or pastries), so a few of us went for some! The place was a really good recommendation from our lovely Pres, and it is so good I think it would be better for us not to say where it is :P.

I had so much fun “touring Singapore”. From the SPF Heritage Centre, to the LTA Gallery, to the Hari Raya night market and finally ending with creamy, bittersweet Mao Shan Wang that tasted like GOLD. That Saturday, I went to many places in Singapore which I have never been before, and I think it was even better because I experienced all these with RBKD. This one Saturday alone made my every dollar of my flight ticket to Singapore worth it!

Wow, has it really been 6 years? Feels way longer.

Thank you not only for the support you have given me but also for the support given to all the charities.

This year, let the focus not be on ourselves but on how to contribute to others and society. Let’s make this anniversary about that.

Lovin’ ya.

My Little Friend,

Thank you for entering our lives.

Thank you for teaching us life lessons, and how to be a better person.

You will continue to grow, and perhaps find fewer new experiences that excite.

But remember, each and every experience, no matter how similar, is actually different. Just like your birthdays.

Continue to inspire, continue to be our invisible best friend.

Thank you, for being just what you are now.

Happy Birthday, RBKD! Happy Sixth Anniversary!

We’ll be here, growing up with you :)

Loving you a lot,

Happy 6th Birthday RBKD!

Even though I haven’t been here that long, it’s been amazing watching you grow, and growing along with you. Your ability to connect fans half the world apart always gives me a sense of warmth. I have met so many wonderful people, and experienced so much through IPC/Bridging/Orientation activities because of RBKD. Thank you for constantly breaking down barriers, and may we continue to grow and achieve even more together.

Alright, here it goes.

Happy 6th birthday RBKD. Though I haven’t posted for a long time in the forum and all I do is read your post and updates, I can truly say that I’m glad to be part of this family. It’s been 4 years since my first membership and it’s been 4 years of being an ordinary member and still counting and I’m proud of it. Hopefully I could meet you guys and of course Rui En someday.

Keep strong Rangels and more and more birthdays to come RBKD!!!


Lots and lots and lots of cheers from Philippines!!!

Happy 6th Anniversary RBKD!

Although I am new to the group, somehow I feel comfortable and accepted. It is mainly because I can feel the close bonds between members and their commitment to the group. It is not just an ordinary fan club, but one where members contribute unconditionally to the group and to society. Continue the enthusiastic cheers and screams during Star Awards and events. Make her feel supported and loved; because she’s worth it. Happy Birthday!

Many happy returns on this special, special day.

Festivals such as Christmas used to be what reminded me that we are approaching the end of the year but now, it’s RBKD’s anniversary which did the job when I have obliviously lost track of time. Time has been passing too quickly for me to realise that it has been yet another year, cause it feels like I’ve just written my wishes for the 5th anniversary not too long ago.

Nevertheless, I believe that it has been yet another fulfilling year despite of all the tough times and tears shed. Am thankful for the presence of RBKD as a platform for us to stay connected as one. #weareone

Hereby wishing RBKD, Happy 6th Anniversary! May the subsequent years be filled with prosperity and happiness.
