We headed out to Changi today to check out the Pokemon Go scene and also the dog-friendly cafes along Netheravon Road and around Changi Village.
Come check out two dog-friendly cafes at Changi with us today!
We went for our first outdoor movie night with Donna at The Grandstand yesterday night (Aug 21, 2016)!
The nostalgic movie night was organised by Action for Singapore Dogs (ASD) to raise funds for the ASD medical budget. We were originally supposed to watch My Dog Dou Dou, starring Flapper Choo, at People’s Park Carpark. But due to withdrawal from some sponsors, the event was eventually held at The Grandstand. The movie was replaced with Hotel for Dogs.
I was rather amused by this augmented reality game on your phone that is taking the population out of their homes in droves. And bringing them together in public spaces as one united people this National Day, dogs included. 😝
We recently had more opportunities to visit Bukit Timah as some of our dog dancing classes are held there. So of course I was interested to visit Dairy Farm Nature Park and also the part of the Green Corridor in that area. But, we had to assuage the lunchtime hunger pangs after class before we venture into the leafy outdoors. What’s there to eat while out with dog at Bukit Timah?
We visited the Green Corridor stretch from Greenleaf View to the Bridge along Dunearn Road two years back. I’ve been wanting to visit other parts of the Green Corridor like the Green Corridor graffiti underpasses for a while. We finally made it there last weekend!
Dog-friendly places covered in this post
Update: Jan 30 2017 Please note that weliveinaflat.com does not recommend PetMate. I personally have deleted the app and do not use it anymore. You should check out the less costly and yet friendlier pet taxi Pawmigos if you need more reliable service with a human touch. ;)
I have been sending Donna to daycare regularly for a month, and I explored using PetMate or dialing direct through the Comfort Taxi hotline on Monday a few weeks back.
PetMate is what is known as the Uber for pets. It connects you to private drivers who are totally open to ferrying pets, with or without being accompanied by humans. So unlike Comfort cab, Grab or Uber, you know for sure the driver is not going to reject your dog even before booking.
I found that PetMate is not affordable for my regular trips to Donna’s daycare which is just 15min drive away. But when venturing further from home for doggy outings the PetMate service can certainly take the headache out of coordinating transport, especially if you are going to remote locations. Read on for details! ;)
We’ve visited Punggol Settlement for a cycling outing before. So when I heard Punggol Waterway Park [google map], I assumed it would be roughly the same area. I was wrong, the two are about 2.8km apart if you drive. Last year we visited and found Punggol Waterway Park to work pretty well for a doggie Christmas picnic that we were invited to.
