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!

Tulip Mania 2016 with Baby!

The much anticipated Tulip Mania tulip extravaganza is back again at Gardens by the Bay! The blast of cool air upon entering the Flower Dome, the waft of fresh tulips and the kaleidoscope of colours, Tulip Mania is one event at the Gardens that I look forward to attending each year because it just makes me feel like I am on holiday overseas in a temperate climate. 

This year, Tulipmania pays homage to the origins of the tulip by showcasing them in a Turkish theme. Way before the tulip was brought to the Netherlands where it sparked “Tulipomania” during the Dutch Golden Age, the first wild tulips were believed to have grown in the mountainous regions of Central Asia and the ancient Ottoman Empire (present-day Turkey). So captivating was it to the Sultan and people of the 16th-century Ottoman Empire that it became the inspiration for many songs, poetry and paintings.

Btw local senior citizens get 50% discount for purchase of tickets onsite!

This year’s visit to Tulipmania was extra special because we brought a special someone along with us! Although Baby is only 2.5 months old, we think it’s important that Baby gets to experience as much as possible instead of being stuck at home with the 4 white walls. We were hoping that he would enjoy the colours of the various tulips, but he was in a grumpy mood. Oh well, at this age, he is indeed a little too young to appreciate what he is seeing. Still it was great fun for us the parents nonetheless! The pictures of his grumpy face below are priceless!

Tulip Mania 2014 at Gardens by the Bay

Today is the LAST DAY to check out Tulip Mania 2014, before all the tulips bid us farewell! The Flower Dome closes only at 9pm so you still have time to check out the pretty tulip display! I would highly advise you to bring your selfie sticks, not just for taking selfies, but for getting close up shots of the tulips in case there are people in front of you blocking you.

I visited Tulip Mania last week and it was a very enjoyable experience. Even though I’ve been to Tulip Mania 2013, revisiting the photos is just not as getting up close and personal with the tulips again. The minute you enter the cooled flower dome conservatory, you’re hit by the lovely scent of flowers. The dome is cooled to a really low temperature which makes you feel like you’re in the midst of Netherlands or something!

Ok less talking from me. Enjoy the pictures!
