Guiding Light of The Month

Tell me, wilt Thou grant me the marvellous power to give birth to this dawn in expectant hearts, to awaken the consciousness of men to Thy sublime presence, and in this bare and sorrowful world awaken a little of Thy true Paradise? What happiness, what riches, what terrestrial powers can equal this wonderful gift! - The Mother

IEP Night Walk – Pranav’s Perspectives

From the top of Mount Faber, we could admire the sight of Sentosa Island, as well as the Integrated Resorts (which were still under construction at that time). We stopped at Mount Faber for a small break, tired after racing to the top. From there we continued to the Faber walk also passing by a miniature version of the Merlion. The walk was interesting for me too, as I accompanied some of the budding young boys from the IEP. Throughout the walk, I engaged in conversation with the children about the trail.

We then moved on to the Henderson Waves Bridge, one of the highlights of the walk due to its different design. We had another break at the Henderson waves, playing around and having fun at the bridge. We continued from Henderson waves, racing down steep slopes. We happened to pass by an ice-cream stall, and all the young Children suddenly wanted ice cream. This had to be contained by all the parents, as we were about to have dinner. We proceeded to the terrace garden, and had dinner in the dark, sharing all the different dishes amongst ourselves. Following the sumptuous dinner, we went on the forest walk, a 1.3km elevated walkway made out of metal. The fascinating thing about the metal walkway bridge…..was that it was almost 36 meters above the street level.

We concluded the walk at the Alexandra Arch overhead bridge with a debrief, following which we parted ways as we went back home after a tiring but enjoyable and fulfilling experience. I went away with a silent promise to myself that I must come here again really soon...
