My favourite exercise routine when there is no need to rush anything in the morning and when I have the luxury of time, is to ride the 8km to the Gardens by the Bay and back. I used to do these things with KK but cycling doesn't fit into his schedule these days. I go solo.
This must be done on a weekday. The best timings are: 730am to start, hit MacDonalds for breakfast which opens at 830am with a book for company, and then visit any one of the conservatories at 9am.

* Last glance at the tulips
The timing is ideal in that there is no one (most times, GB is swarming with people like ants) and the weather is still cool. By the time I head back, at 9-ish near 10, it is already somewhat hot. But that’s fine.
It is most calming and rejuvenating – it’s great to start the day with plants - and I like to reward myself with such a trip after I finish onerous jobs.
