      Location

      Jurong East Interchange, Westbound Platform front.

      Objective

      To camp for train spottings.

      Duration

      2.30 PM onwards. Will last for about 2 hours.

      Notes

      Best place to refresh time at Chinese Garden or Bukit Batok, where stations are near JUR so to reduce the chances of missing trains to minimum.

      Attendees

      jcqh - Black sling bag, sandals

      willis_chong - Grey/Orange Bag (Backpack), Broken Glasses on Left, Jeans

      wenjie - black-blue sling bag, shirt and shorts and sandals

      Tilldeath - jeans, black specs and sling bag

      It depends on the stn where you entered and where you plan to tap out at to "refresh" your timing. There are certain limits to the amt of time you take to get from 1 location to another. For me, I enter from Pasir Ris, and tap out at either Bukit Batok (preferred) or Chinese Garden. These stns are 24 stns away from PSR, so I have a time limit of 2hrs. PSR -> JUR will take abt 55mins, so i have abt 1h to camp before refreshing my time.
