EVENTS,  OUTFITS

Singapore Garden Festival 2016

I bought weekday tickets to the Singapore Garden Festival last week. The festival ran for only a week, and since I have weekdays off from work, I decided to go on a weekday to avoid the worst of the weekend crowd. However, Ottie threw a wrench in my plans when he found out that he wasn’t free by the time I’d bought the tickets (lame), but it worked out because Ken (MD DesignWorks) was – he’d been needing a break from designing awesome stuff. Yay for burnt-out friends!

Weekday tickets to the festival were priced at $12 (I got them at half price). The displays were not bad, albeit slightly diluted as they were spread way too far out in the hot, hot, hot summer of Singapore in July. Ken and I found ourselves eagerly loitering inside the air-conditioned indoor gardens and were loathe to exit when we were done viewing the floral exhibits.

Some of the outdoor pieces were pretty inspirational though! There’s not enough money I could earn to buy myself a landed property in Singapore (you’d have to be a millionaire to even think about it), but oh man how I wish I had the space to scape a garden for leisure evenings among home-grown fruits and vegetables. I guess that’s going into my bucket list.

Yea I got Ken to be my human tripod for the day. It was a bit awkward, as with all first times with everyone (and it doesn’t help that I need work in vocalising my directions, especially when we were both melting in the heat), but the pictures turned out good in the end!
