Last Saturday, we went to Singapore Garden Festival which held in Suntec City Convention Center in fourth and sixth floor (7-15 July 2012). This event is a two years event. We had planned to go somewhere else, but when I saw this festival at someone’s blog, I asked Rafael whether he wanted to go or not. Being a plants lover, of course he wanted to go. So, went there on Saturday 14th (I didn’t want to go on the last day because I was afraid it would be too crowded).
The festival opened from 10 am to 10 pm. I hoped we could go there at 10am to avoid the crowd, but we arrived a little bit late. We purchased the ticket at 11.14 am. Some might say: why are you going to that kind of place, it’s just flowers show. well, the answer is because I like it, my son likes it, and my mother likes it too. What about daddy? Maybe we’ll find out later.
Quite surprising, that 11 am was still considered very early in the morning here (hey, we’re the morning person). It was getting crowded as the clock passed by. When we left the exhibition at 5 a’clock, the queue in the ticketing office was so long (imagine buying tickets in that hour, wow….).
My mother loves the orchids the best, my son likes the Tree House, and I’m still dreaming about my dream house, hahaha……..
Well, here are some photos that will explain “these flowers exhibition”
Next is the Homa Garden Exhibition. We spent quite a long time here because we loved it so much (while dreaming if only this was our home……..hahaha……daydreaming………
And here we were at Fantasy Gardens. We found them. They were just near the entrance door of sixth floor. The sixth floor was actually darker inside.
Well, as you can see, we all had great fun together. We were there for almost 6 hours! We went outside to eat in Food Republic in the first floor, but still in total we spent so much time there. Yeah, because in was so much fun. Even daddy loves it too. I was afraid that everybody will get bored, and I turn out wrong, There were so many things to see, but we were very tired. Rafael still wanted to play, but I asked him to leave because I could see that he was tired too. We had a late lunch (3pm) because my son refused to leave…….
At the end, he ended sleeping in the MRT all the way home. Poor mommy and daddy had to carry him when we switched train in the interchange, but he waked up when we arrived in our train station.
So, this was not just flowers exhibition, but it turned out to be a super duper fun playground for the whole family. Absolutely worth the money, no regret visiting this place. Rafael has already planned to come again two years from now, hahaha……..

And if you think there are too many photos of “us” instead of the “flowers”, I will put some pictures of the flowers only…….and let us admire the beautiful of God’s Creation through all these:
See you two years from now………at the next Garden Festival
