Cobra Garden redux and touchy blue down

Another rainy day. This doesn’t stop William and Ling from joining me in building what we eventually become the start of cobra garden. With almost unlimited supply of granite rocks lying around cobra garden, we placed our effort so to make it longer and better, with interesting drops in mind. A workforce of five got ...

Tidak Apa-apa – the long way down

With the cobra garden half done in a ridable state. We shifted our work to the Black Cobra exit, the steep slope that we always wanted to armor and to serve as a show piece on how a rock downhill should look like. We coined this section ‘tidak apa-apa’ means ‘no problem’ in Malay. Joey ...

Overshot!

Rock work never been so fun. We’ve tried rock/stone pitching at Bukit Timah MTB trail earlier this year. We’ve certainly build a bunch of rock armor in Kent Ridge. We’ve the entire Tampines hills rock armored. But today is one of the first time we are doing rock work in such massive scale for such ...
