Flower bed blooming after the spring rain. This is the center piece of Tribal Tempo, we love the colourful carpet of flowers.

Desert is not always dry and cold, there is spring and rain too.

Flowers and decorations from the fringe. These are not the real exhbits but I always find them fascinating (similar to the role of a supporting actor or actress), love at the creepers going up the hydrant.

Seafood dinner at Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant, love the fried crispy bass and Kopi (coffee) crab. We heard the Kopi crab is a signature dish.

After dinner, it was time to explore the lanterns around Gardens by the Bay. Do take note mid-autumn festival light up (and lanterns) will end on 18th Sep.
If time permits, do visit “RON ARAD’S 720°” at the meadows too.

Wish to see more lanterns, climb up OCBC Skywalk for a top-down view. Garden Rhapsody played 《夜来香》, 《甜蜜蜜》,’Bengawan Solo’, ‘Dayung Sampan’, ‘Sukiyaki’, and ‘Singapura, Oh Singapura’!

Super melodious, and everyone was mesmerised!
