With a thousand eyes on me, I am numb.

11:03 PM

I finally got to visit Gardens by the Bay after itching to go for a very long time. I've always been hesitant about visiting gardens since the weather is always so dreadful but after reading so many reviews about it, I finally willed myself to go. And it just so happens that I got to go with Brandon's parents and himself after they booked tickets at a discounted price from Sembawang CC last Sunday!

There's really nothing much in the outdoor gardens. There were a couple of interesting plants and sights but the truly eye-opening experience is when you actually enter the conservatories (which they call Cloud Forest and Flower Dome) where you get to enjoy air-conditioning too.

I find it wasted for those who didn't visit the conservatories simply because you have to purchase tickets to enter. It's so worth it!!! But if you choose to only visit one, you should go for the Cloud Forest because the sight of the 7-storey high waterfall that greets you at the entry will take your breath away.

Anyway I snapped away like some crazy girl who has never seen flowers her entire life. There were so many stunning species of flora and fauna and being the floral lover I am, I really enjoyed every hour spent. It's a pity my camera battery didn't last me long enough for both conservatives ): I should have brought along a spare battery like Brandon told me to...

So yes the crazy bombardment of pictures taken mostly by me and Brandon. Quite proud of the results if I could say so myself hehe.

I honestly don't remember the last time I woke up at 6am though lol. Can't believe I used to be awake at that ungodly hour for at least 8 years of my primary and secondary school life. But if it means riding in comfort in a coach to Gardens by the Bay from Sembawang then I guess it's all worth it.


And visiting the Gardens in the morning is probably a good idea because it captures great photos and the heat doesn't kill you. Either way it was certainly quite the beauty and I would go back again IF I ever get some other discounted tickets just to take more pictures hahaha.


Tuesday's coming around tomorrow and I guess it's the start of my second work week. I'm really enjoying my work thus far because I'm doing the things that I love and my bosses are super friendly and nice!! I think I am really blessed to have gotten myself a job with prospects like this. 

Well, till my next blog post!
