I got a few hours of early release from office today (one day earlier than Chinese New Year Eve) and my kids should be having fun at their childcare, so I decided to maximise my few hours of freedom. After having a quick lunch, I headed down to Bloodbank@DhobyGhaut to donate some ‘healthy’ blood before the CNY festive contamination. Bloodbank@DhobyGhaut, located in the Dhoby Xchange right above Dhoby Ghaut MRT station is definitely much more convenient than Bloodbank@HSA.
Then off I went to Gardens by the Bay. I had already went to Cloud Forest with my wife sometime ago, so decided to take a look at the Flower Dome again (my first visit was during its preview during one of the Orchid Exhibition). Before I reach the domes, I was already greeted with festive colours of flowers. Nice!
I had not gotten a fisheye lens when I first visited Flower Dome during its preview and now that I had one, I tried to play with it in the wide area inside the conservatory.
After having fun with my fisheye lens, I turned my focus on the colourful flowers. I read that the flowers will be changed slowly throughout the year, to reflect the ‘changing’ seasons. So I presume it is the spring colours I’m seeing now, predominantly red, pink, yellow and white.
Nearer the exit… it is not the flowers but a simple chinese knitting that caught my attention.
Comparing the two domes, I prefer the Cloud forest to the Flower Dome. I found the former’s multistorey architecture, waterfall and varied flowers much more interesting.
