Almost as close as being a spooky walk. But SPI corporate trails is mainly concentrate on 3 places. Led by SPI Advisor Desmond Wong, we will take you to the Pasir Ris Mangrove Swamp, Bukit Brown and Old Chua Chu Kang cemetery. As what I believe, these will be the same places as for the time being. Bukit Brown cemetery will be exhumed soon, as a new development, such as the new Bukit Brown MRT will make its way soon. So for those who are interested about this cemetery which is one of the oldest cemetery in Singapore, this could be your last chance to see it before its gone from the face of the Earth. And once that, the corporate trails will need to reshuffle to add in a new place. Of course, one that is known to have such stories, encounters, let it be hearsay or not. A dark history left behind, and not to mention, areas within them which is deemed very interesting and worthtelling.

Corporate trails are mainly been established when you are from a business or a government body. Even from schools, learning centers where the management will invite SPI to give them a tour of the most interesting, also been the spookiest place that were been recorded so far in our list. Set to take place when night falls, we will take them to those 3 places, where it was rich in history and popular through encounters as well as hearsay. Also, to experienced what its like walking in the dark, especially for those who are yet to experience what its like to walk in the cemetery during night time. Not only its thrilling, or some would say hair-raising, its also educational and a learning-experience. Cause by the end of the night, it will be a worth of experience. We will also introduced some of the gadgets that we investigators frequently used. Also, to share some stories, various types of ghost and demons along the way.

So yesterday night (Feb 21st), were 22 teachers from Morris Allan Study Centres participate for this corporate trails. I happened to be available for that night to assist Desmond for this trail. So far, this has been my 6th participation for the SPI corporate trails. It only depends if I’m free for it. Also, I managed to kick myself in the butt to assist Desmond to do some of the talking. Like elaborating to the participants about the Bird-watch tower that is located inside the Pasir Ris Mangrove Swamp, where it was known to be haunted by a spirit of a girl that had committed suicide there many years ago. And also, to share with them some insights in what I know about some of the ghosts and demons in the Malay folklore. Such as the Pontianak, a female version of a vampire.

Honestly speaking, I’m not much of a speech. Not used to speak infront of audience. I did lost somewhere while I was sharing with them about Pontianak. But still, I’m willing to fight that fear and learn to talk more. As Desmond and few of the other senior SPI Agents ever encourage me before, start slowly. Bit by bit and you will progress. There sure be some mistakes. None is perfect. But those mistakes is where we learn. Sooner or later, you will get more comfortable with it. You don’t have to be so elaborate into it. Share what you know and go easy with the flow. I had to promise myself that. Cause when you have the potential, why not go for it? As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. Confident! =)

These are the photos taken from yesterday’s corporate trails.

We SPI would like to thank the teachers, for their participation into this corporate trails. Hope they enjoyed the night of fun and thrill, the experience and we’ll hope to catch them again in the future! =)
