We haven’t visited Taman Tugu Forest since the Movement Control Order started. I miss this place a lot. My family and I enjoy taking a walk here to build up a sweat. We like that it is not too far from our home for us to enjoy some greenery. Being surrounded by nature is good for the soul. In Japan, forest bathing or Shinrin Yoku is a famous way of spending time in nature.
Last Saturday, we made our way to Tugu Forest in the late afternoon to avoid crowds together with my friend Annie and her 2 boys. We only saw 3 families with kids inside the forest. They have closed off the main entrance to the forest and we have to enter via the entrance near the guardhouse. The main entrance is now used as the exit. Every visitor has to check-in with the My Sejahtera app and get our temperature scanned. The seating area is off-limits now to discourage crowds from mingling. There are benches available near the exit for visitors to take a short rest.
Nothing like a little tree therapy and the therapeutic sound of nature.
Managed to clock in almost 6k steps on my Fitbit in one round inside Tugu forest. I should try to do 2 rounds if I want to clock in 10k steps or more. Good exercise.
