Tulipmania 2014

I missed the Tulipmania last year at the Gardens by the bay and heard it was good. So I made a trip down today to take a look.

The Tulips only occupy a small portion of the Flower Dome, i.e. the Flower field.

But the tulips were really nice.

Efforts were made to create a Dutch landscape, including this miniature exhibit.

And I’m pretty happy with the misleading photographic opportunities.

After having enough of tulips, I came across some nice dutch clogs…

Before leaving, I had another round of flower macros.

Nice tulips, I’ll definitely be back next year!

Fashion Parade @ Vivo

It is very rare that I am able to attend a fashion show on a weekday, it is even rarer that I have a ticket to seat down for a photoshoot. Today is my lucky day. My wife brought my kids to meet her friends and I happen to have a ticket when I asked about the fashion parade from the Vivocity service counter the day before.

After I ‘passed’ my kids to my wife, I head straight off to the fashion parade.

The show was scheduled to start at 7pm but at 6.30pm, I was there too early and had a long wait. By 7pm, the show still had not started.

Overall, this is my best fashion show experience.
