Hiking: Katong to Marina Reservoir & The City

Sweating it out is our new kind of sexy! After the urban hike from Katong to Kallang, we decided to take a longer hike this time to test our stamina since we normally capped at 10km, and also to indulge in some nature view along the way! The weather had been really cranky but we made it through without too much delay! Our feet carried us all the way from Katong to Tanjong Rhu, Marina Barrage, Gardens by the Bay & Marina Square! Where the cars can go, we can go too (almost)!

Even if the pawkids wouldn’t care much about their outlooks, the pawrents definitely will not say yes to a bad haircut or grooming services. Finding a pet grooming salon is easy in Singapore, but one that caters to the pawrents’ preferences in terms of shop’s hygiene, customer service and the quality of the services is just like hitting the jackpot – you don’t usually get it at the first try. There is a comparison since we had a real-life terrible experience with one particular groomer (more in another post) but here’s our favourite, and hopefully the pawkids’ too.
