It's a long way in from the main road.
We took 3 taxis there; the fare was around S$16 per taxi. In contrast, I rode there and it costed me only $1.10 in petrol.
|Why the name?|
|Because of this signature tree!|
|It's quite a nice place, but it's not very rural — you can see the MRT tracks in the background.|
Do you know? Paintball is also known as painball. It hurts when you
get hit, so don't get hit.
Prasad told us not to hit his clothes cos it's expensive!
|Have to attend a long briefing and sign wavier.|
The instructor has to explain the rules of the game, especially the safety

After that, it's briefing of the mission objectives.
It's very simple: transport a flag and a brick from the frontline to your base. If you get hit, you have to return to your base before you re-enter the game.

|Those with spare rounds finished them in the shooting gallery.|

|Dragon fruit juice. Looks nicer than it tastes. It is not sweet at all.|
