Relaxing day at Pulau Ubin where time stands still.  Lots of native flora and fauna.

Wild Betel leaf or Daun Kaduk has a distinctive peppery taste, and is used in a wide variety of Vietnamese cooking, a famous dish being the Grilled Beef wrapped in Wild Betel Leaf.

Do visit Chek Jawa and book a guide.  Its worth every cent.
