PoGo Hunting For Machops At Kallang Riverside Park

I was getting close to completing my pokedex and because there was some sort of special event going on, there is a chance I could catch less of the same pokemons and evolve them into their evolved version to fill my pokedex.

I found out that one pokemon I am short of can be found at Kallang Riverside Park.

Kallang what? I have never heard of that place before!  Turned out it is at the old gasworks place.

I think and thought... and decided I will make a trip there when Ace is in school.

As with all outdoor PG hunting, I prepared, ice water, umbrella, power bank and made my way there!:)

while on the way there, one of my eggs hatched into a Snorlax! Good omen! Woohoo!

I took an MRT over to Kallang and used Google maps to navigate my way to the park... Thanks to may other helpful trainers, who shared how to get there... I was able to find my way there...

As I walked over, I saw lovely morning glory!

It was a pretty short stretch of a park... I realized I was opposite National stadium and saw many dragon boaters having training..

Saw also this beautiful and interesting tree..

There were quite a few people who were here to farm too.. I was a little disappointed that after arriving for 20 min, I only caught ONE machop and one uncle who saw me chatted with me and encouraged me to continue cos he said he caught 7 already in one hour... so I persevered:)

When I walked to the other end of the park.. a beautiful sight awaited me...

So pretty!

While waiting for pokemons to appear, watch the dragon boaters do their training...

I love this tree.. will make good picture location for wedding portrait I think:)

THen after some time, I got tired and sat down at one of the booths. There was another uncle there and we started chatting about pokemon, about kids... and he even taught me a trick or two about how and where to catch pokemon.. haha

He said he has never visited so many parks in SIngapore before Pokemon Go.. to be honest, ME TOO:) hahahaha.. I never knew there were so many beautiful places in Singapore:)

Saw this dunno wat type of boat .... anyone knows?

ANway, not bad lah.. after two hours there and braving the rain with my umbrella, I caught enough to evolve and decided to go home as the sky was turning dark...

These leaves are so pretty.. ;)

Ok one last catch before heading home...

THese are some of the plants I saw when I was on the wya back to the MRT station..

So pretty hor..

Finally reached Bedok and decided to go buy some ice cream with my expiring vouchers to pamper myself.. yumz!:)

What a day!

PS: The next few days, I decided to embark on another journey.. walked from Big Splash all the way to the Bougainvillea Garden in East Coast Park and back and forth... so  could hatch egg and farm for the pokemons I needed...
