Battle of Pasir Panjang Commemorative Walk with NUS Toddycats, Sat 11th and Sun 12th February 2023

NUS Toddycats are pleased to invite you to the Battle of Pasir Panjang Commemorative Walk! 

The account of the heroic defence of the ridge by the Malay Regiment in World War 2 by Dol Ramli left such a strong impression on us that we decide to share the story in 2002. Annually since, we commemorate the Battle of Pasir Panjang which took place from the western end of NUS to hill 226 where the Reflections at Bukit Chandu now stands. Read this account by Kenneth Pinto from 2011.

BPP Walk Route

It is a shorter walk that we conduct this year, as we did last year, which begins at The Gap which you can access from Kent Ridge MRT station. The walk still ends at Reflections at Bukit Chandu which has Pasir Panjang MRT nearby at the bottom of the hill.

The guides, Kok Oi Yee, Stella Wee, Kenneth Pinto, Airani S and Otterman will also introduce aspects of the geography, history, flora and fauna of the area which drew every natural history student in NUS to explore the ridge over the decades.

All are welcome, just register for these time slots (15 pax/slot):
