#Throwback to the closure of Woodlands Reg Int and the last 900 bus out of WRI.... ☺☺ It's been a fulfilling 3 - 4 years of myself being a bus/train enthusiast but on that day last month on 11 March 2015, Friday is the day I'll never forget. With a huge turnout of bus/train enthusiasts spending the last few hours over at Woodlands Reg Int to take many photos and some videos to capture the memories of Woodlands Reg Int, we won't forget our best BC we know and he is none other than Mr Krishnan Raw or Pilot BC (middle).
Together as one community, we thank him for making this day an unforgettable day for us to remember especially the closure of Woodlands Regional Int as my childhood place with many memories left behind which I'll miss very much. 😀😀😃😃😢😢😭😭 To Mr Krishnan Raw or so-called Pilot BC, today is your special day as it is your birthday. So to Mr Krishnan Raw, here's wishing you a very happy birthday to you. May God bless you and continue to keep our passenger including my bus/trian enthusiast firends and myself smiling whenever we board your bus and keep on being a shining star for SMRT!! 😀😀🎉🎉🎂🎂 Featured behind is the last bus out of WRI: SMB8018H (WLDEP/WRDEP 901) on service 900 ~~ Photographed on 12 March 2016, Tuesday (early morning). #JourneywithusatWoodlandsTBI #SMB8018H #service900 #TeamService187 #SMRT #LTASG #SGBusGram #SGBusJourney #LTAOurBusJourneyCarnival

Easter long weekend special:
With the ongoing LTA Our Bus Journey carnival over at Vivo City Outdoor Plaza happening this weekend (25 - 27 April 2016), this weekend also marks the final weekend for the domination of Volvo B10M buses on Parks 408 as Parks 408 will be declared Wheelchair Accessible Bus (WAB) service with effect from tomorrow (28 March 2016, Monday). Since its introduction 11 years ago in 2005 together with Parks 409 (both launched in March and November 2005 respectively), both services ply between HarbourFront Int and parks nearby such as Mount Faber and Labrador Park/Nature Reserve dominated by Volvo B10Ms. With the withdrawal of Parks 409 three years ago in March 2013, Parks 408 is the sole and remaining Parks service left on service with amendments in March 2009 and 2014 and now becoming a WAB service from tomorrow onwards.
With that, we bid farewell to the Volvo B10Ms on Parks 408 towards the tail end of the era as the old buses are now in the midst of de-registeration till December next year.
Featured here is SBS2831G (ARBP 93) (top pic) and SBS2795C (ARBP 16/48*) (bottom pic) making a cameo appearance on Parks 408 on Good Friday 2016. 😊😁 Lastly, to all my Christians/Catholics Instagrammers, Facebookers, Snapchatters, bus enthusiast friends, Principal, Vice/Deputy Principals, teaching and non-teaching staff members, and my fellow schoolmates and friends of ITE College West (CCK), Central (AMK) and East (Simei), and Fuchun Secondary School, here's wishing you a very Happy and Holy Easter Sunday as we celebrate the rise of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!! 😊😀 Photographed on 25 April 2016, Friday - Good Friday 2016.

#Throwback to early this month.... SMB3611C (KJDEP 188) acting as LTA's Bright Red bus makes a visit to Geylang as it cameos on service 985 seen departing CCKI for its another trip~~ 😁😁 As mentioned in LTA's Our Bus Journey carnival over at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza on 11 - 13 March 2016, Lush Green is the preferred choice for LTA's new buses for SG❤Bus livery which was voted against Bright Red (pictured) in January/February 2016.
As of now, this bus is no longer carrying this ad.
