Mid-Autumn Festival @ Gardens by the Bay

It has been a long while since the entire family went out for some relaxing family time. Brought the girls out to the FEO Children’s Garden for a fun time. Thank God that the haze situation was much better.

With the invite from Gardens by the Bay, we took a trip to the latest flower display at the Flower Dome. More than 10,000 Chrysanthemums were brought in to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival.


Chrysanthemums, a symbolic feature in traditional Chinese art to depict the autumn season, is the theme of, “Celebration of Chrysanthemums” (满园菊花香). It will run from 24 Sep 2015 to 10 Nov 2015.

With the Mid-Autumn Festival Children’s Promotion, kids aged 12 years old and below who show up with a lantern at the ticketing counter from 25 Sep to 4 Oct, between 5pm to 9pm, can redeem a free ticket to enter the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest on the same day.
Under the SG50 Seniors Special, local senior citizens aged 60 and above can enter the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest for free, while caregivers enjoy 50% off tickets. The SG50 Seniors Special is on until 31 Dec 2015.

Joey took over the camera while in the Flower Dome and this is what she saw.

One of the highlights for visiting Gardens by the Bay was to see the hundreds of lanterns that lighted up the Gardens in a really festive mood. As many as 300 lanterns shaped like various animals and plants decorate the Gardens. Cultural performances, Lantern painting competition, food street, for a moment, we were all transported to a Chinese New Year look-a-like setting.

The dinosaurs took over Marina Bay.



It was a nice touch to have a Food Street for the visitors. We had a great time setting up our picnic mats on the grass and enjoying a cool evening.
