Archery And Monkey Business

Time to cool down our bodies after the Walk downhill.  It felt great to be walking on flat ground, I realized my knees are not that "normal" anymore when walking down the hill.  It must be the pressure on my knees caused by the steep steps on certain parts.  I guess I need some "booster dose" to strengthen my kneecaps.... oh well....

Coming back to the Youth Park, I am surprised that it was indeed very well maintained by the municipal.... Even the resthouse was pleasant looking, if you know what I mean...
 
Clean and tidy....
I was surprised that there is an Archery club there too... 
Mostly are young adults....
As we walked along, there was some bustling above us....
Oh yes... monkeys everywhere....
Quite worrying too... 
well, I guess it is advisable not to hold any food in our hands...
Saw something interesting here.....
Come....let's have a game of chess before we leave!
Yes, we were dead thirsty.... and this is a very welcoming sight!
We ended our evening stroll after refreshing our thirst with a fresh young coconut...
Phew.... what an interesting evening.....

  1. Interesting place. Luckily you didn't use skirt otherwise the monkeys will simply pull up your skirt. Hate them.
