Yes, we are back to the same garden in exactly one week apart. What else can I say? We love the nature and the new Gardens by the Bay provides just that. When we were there last weekend, the Gardens just welcomed it’s 1,000,000th visitor in less than 7 weeks.
This is really a huge place, this time round we took a different route and realised that we have barely walked through half the place the first time we were there. Found this spot just slightly near the OCBC Skyway, great place to take a photo of most of the Supertrees.
If I have a garden at home, it would be so cool to have any of these benches in it.
Double up for photo prop.
Initially I thought the girls would be bored since we just visited the same place not long ago, but thankfully the smile on their faces were enough to tell us we didn’t make the wrong choice.
Time to visit the 2 conservatories and enjoy some air-conditioning. Thanks to Lisa, we were able to buy tickets to the 2 Conservatories for half the price. $10 for adults and $6 for child. Worth it!!

Once we stepped into the dome, we were in awe of the size and the spectacular architectural design which is already one of the icons of Marina Bay.
Pardon the quality of the photos, as I was not well prepared for the dim of lights.
These are Carpets of flowers – Mangle’s Kangaroo Paw.

Though all three girls were slightly drenched by the waters, their BIG SMILE says it all.
Didn’t take photos of the flowers since we had enough of it in the other dome, but the captivating part for me was more of the magnificent architectural designs and settings.
Reflections of the waterfall on the huge window panes, coupled with the MBS lights as background.
Right before we left, it was my chance to finally put my tripod to work and take some night shots.
Took a short 2mins video clip of the OCBC Skyway show.
