First of all, “palau ubin” is coined the last village of Singapore, but it doesn’t look like a village to me, it just seems like an island for people to hike or bike around. A mere 5 minutes junk boat ride off of East Coast, it was nice to visit. I bike for around 5 hours, which is an amazing feat considering the last time I was on a bike, I was in high school just coasting around the neighborhood for fun.
People were asking me what I did over the weekend, and I said, I went to Palau and I can feel people pondering my response. I hesitated a bit too wondering if I made an “incorrect” pronunciation according to Singaporeans ^^ and it turned out they are confused because the word “palau” means an island in Malay and they want to know “island” of where, hahaha.
I wished I wasn’t given a 14-year old girl bike though because it was horrible when I have to go uphill. Basically I cannot go uphill, I have to push the bike up. However, I secretly enjoy the basket and horn my bike was equipped with, they are awesome!
