Gardens by the Bay

Aug 7th is the starting of the Jubilee Weekend.  My friends plan for a trip to Gardens by the Bay.  Weather not that good that day, a rainy day.


Saw that traffic was a bit heavy while walking toward Gardens by the Bay


The entry to the two conservatories is free for Singaporean age 60 and above during the period 1st June to 31st August and Singaporean can enjoy 50% off the admission tickets to the two conservatories during the Jubilee Weekend.

While we were there, saw that there are two queues, one is for Seniors above 60 to redeem the free tickets and the other queue is for those who needs to purchase the ticket.

As my friends is 60 and above, they get to queue at the Seniors queue where there is not much people. The queue to purchase ticket is super long and i decided not to queue for it, not that i do not want to spend money, but i do not want to spend money, go in and then the place is so crowded and i don't enjoy it.

My friend went in and i was outside, walking here and there to racky the place.  But the weather is not good, it was raining and i could only stays in the shelter place.


While in the shelter place, saw this tree with big "ball" in it, but i do not know what is it, was curious so took picture of it.

After sometimes, the rain stops and i was able to walk out to take some pictures.

After taking this flower picture, it started to rain again and i have to take shelter again.

After my friend came out, we plan to go for dinner.  We wanted to go for "better" foods, but one of my friend, who is "careful" in spending money, keeps suggesting going to eat in Hawker Centre or Food Court, we end up in Tiong Bahru Market having our dinner (I didn't take picture of the foods i eat) before calling it a day.

    1. STP, can understand what makes you say that, maybe the new Singapore is a lot more too modernised and commercialised
