Birthday with Buloh

Category : mangroves

Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve, old friend Linda (Education Officer and Acting Park Manager until mid-Dec) and myself all share the same birthday on 6th December. It seems Linda and I were fated to care for the park, no escape looking likely here!

At the 10th anniversary celebrations which was graced by Minister Mah Bow Tan, NParks staff procured a cake. I had been ordered to the room earlier, rather sternly by CSH, the smallest park staff, so all thoughts of going back early to the museum evaporated. The workroom, site of so many briefings, was soon regaled by a rowdy rendering of a birthday song from a room full of nature's protectors staff and volunteers from SBWR/NParks, NSS, NUS, etc.! Doesn't get much better than that. T'was pretty sweet of everyone although Linda was mumbling "pai-seh, pai-seh" next to me. I am pretty comfortable with this bunch of trouble makers so it was not as bad for me, but some of the rowdy crowd were reveling in our discomfort, and I shall have to plan retribution in the days to come!

Kate Thome (my ICCS kaki) actually managed to send me a couple of digital photos via email the same day, so that was another pleasant surprise. She is feeling very efficient and probably finished lots of marking that night!
