We are not in a zoo, but Gardens by the Bay (GBTB) had been run over by African animals 🙂
Tribal Tempo, Flower Dome’s first African-themed flower display, is in town till 30 Oct. This event also coincide with Mid autumn activities around GBTB (ending 18 Sep).
At the entrance, Giraffes and jeop are camouflaged in the safari.
What other animals can you spot 🙂
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.
Waterfall at the flowerbed, Simba? We heard the waterfall is inspired by the real one in Northern Cape.
Exotic flowers, all the way from Africa 🙂
“King Protea” on the left is South Africa’s National flower.
No need to know the names, these daisies are absolutely stunning, look at the delicate and pretty petals 🙂
Some caveman scribbings spotted too 🙂
Aloe Vera relatives?
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.
Many more lions dot the exit of Flower Dome.
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.
Lanterns Big and Small.
Luminious and attractive lighting and lanterns line SuperTree Grove.
Stories from folk tales are animated over huge lanterns, Chang Er and her bunnies 🙂
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!
Plenty of activities and food to keep everyone happy 🙂
Boon Xin crafted her own rabbit.
