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?

Baby’s day out at HortPark!

I hope you guys had great fun during the glorious long weekend! The Partner decided to take a few days leave as well so it was an even more glorious weekend for us. We had originally planned to take Baby to some of the indoor playgrounds or playgroups, but because it rained so much, we thought it’d be a better idea to make full use of the unusually cool weather in Singapore to enjoy the great outdoors! Pat on the back for being flexible with our schedule! Smile

We were in the Alexandra area to visit Playeum at Gillman Barracks. So with the change of plans, we headed straight for HortPark, it being the nearest one to us, and also because it has mini horticultural gardens. HortPark is quite different from other parks! If you haven’t been there, you should go!

There are so many different aspects to HortPark, so not only was it great for Baby to explore all the different elements, we managed to get great photos too! I’ve taken a gazillion photos of Baby using my iPhone, and the iPhone is really useful to capture a fleeting moment, but nothing beats the DSLR if you want that all important bokeh….. I kinda feel regretful that I’ve taken so many photos of food using my DSLR, and not spent the same effort when it comes to photographing Baby. I shall have to be more mindful about that and I can’t wait for the next cloudy or drizzly day to head to our parks again!
