Elyn’s workout (of the year) at Macritchie Reservoir

@ MacRitchie Reservoir Park For Elyn, who hardly exercises (the soles of her shoes falling off being undeniable proof), to enjoy the 12.6km Macritchie walk, there must be a draw about the place. If you're looking for a unique way to burn off those calories from that third buffet in the month, or

How tok kong (powerful) is your Singlish?
