Gardens by the Bay Flower Dome – Begonia Brilliance

Anyone who has never gone to the Cooled Conservatories at Gardens by the Bay ought to really make a trip there. The experience is really amazing. The best part about it is that you can enjoy a beautiful garden-like setting in cool air-conditioning, even when you’re in hot and humid Singapore! It’s also a great place to bring young children to expose them to nature, without them getting too sweaty and irritable.

I missed the Tulip Mania which usually happens in April. I brought Edward to Tulip Mania 2016 and Tulip Mania 2017 when he was 2 months and 1 yr old respectively. OMG how he has grown, I miss his baby looks!! I guess I’ll be saying the same thing again come next year and I look at this year’s photos! Anyway, I was at the Flower Dome a couple of weeks back to check out the Begonia Brilliance and Enid Blyton’s The Magic Faraway Tree. I didn’t know there are so many types of Begonias, and it seems they can look quite different. You’ll see what I mean when you scroll down for the pictures.

Which picture looks better? Me being the main photographer, there are loads of pictures of Edward with Papa. And this is the only picture of me with Edward! Or perhaps Papa is just more photogenic?

Gardens by the Bay Tulip Mania 2017 (16)

Smile Baby, smile!

The annual Tulipmania Floral Display is on again from now until 7 May 2017, this time with a theme that celebrates Vincent van Gogh’s artworks. More than 100 varieties of tulips and hyacinths – including Darwin hybrid tulips often appreciated for their large blooms – will be on display in a palette of colours. Lots of photo opportunities! Local senior citizens enjoy 50% discount on their admission ticket to a single conservatory.

When Mama does the photo taking, Baby looks at the camera….

As you can see, Baby enjoyed the experience much more this time round as compared to last year when he was just a two month old. I’m a firm believer of letting young children experience as much nature as possible, but it’s even better when it’s in air-conditioned comfort such as in the cooled conservatories! I highly recommend everyone to go check out Tulip Mania not least because the cold air makes it feel as if your are overseas!

New Rose display at Gardens by the Bay

Checked out the War of the Roses floral display at Gardens by the Bay’s Flower Dome 2 weeks ago. If you love roses, you really have to come see the display. I love going to the Flower Dome. It’s like a cheating method for me to feel like I’m deep in the heart of nature, without having to sweat it out thanks to the air-conditioning! Kinda like why we love visiting parks and gardens when we are in temperate countries.

War of the Roses is on from 26 February to 6 April 2014!
