Sakura Blossom Bliss at Gardens by the Bay

White, Pink, Red, Yellow, these Sakura Blossom all look stunning 🙂
Gardens By The Bay’s latest campaign Blossom Bliss has brought Sakuras (樱花) to humid Singapore!

Sakuras in Full Bloom, but do hurry as the flowers will wilt away by 24th Mar.

No bad shots. Just aim in any direction, capture some bokeh effect and the Sakuras just pop! I would recommend morning Sun for the dreamy effect.

The bokeh effect, either front or back seems to pull us into the beautiful Sakura domain.

Go low and shoot skyward with the dome (and blue sky overhead) for that dreamy effect (sun rays). Personally, I would recommend viewing the Sakuras in the day rather than night.

Everyone is eager to snap a Sakura memory, it would be a challenge to avoid photo bombers 🙂

Take a Sakura shot with the Japanese style bridge or pavilion, or even cosplayer, it does add another dimension of “Feel”.

Gardens by The Bay’s (GBTB) Sakura Blossom Bliss is unique and sensational in an unique way because so many variety of Sakuras have been brought under one roof (I meant Dome). Although we cannot Hanami (picnic under the blooms), the picturesque landscape does make our hearts flutter and camera clicks.


This pink variety does looks a bit like Chrysanthemum.

I got one recommendation for GBTB, do introduce some man-made breeze, let the Sakura branches sway and petals fall. It would be such a romantic sight.

Even the buds look so pretty.

Do book your tickets online to avoid the crowds, and be prepared for long queues at carparks, and entry to Flower Dome. More updates about Sakura Blossom Bliss can be found on Gardens by the Bay (GBTB) Website, Facebook and Instagram.

Christmas Merry Medley at Flower Dome

[ Media Invite ]

Christmas is around the corner and Merry Medley aims to bring in the festive spirits. Last week, Flower Dome extended its opening hours for us and we literally had Flower Dome all to ourselves 🙂

Before our event, we walked around and were mesmerised by the Violet landscape across Super Tree Grove.
Crowd was gathered to wait for the next “Garden Rhapsody” performance.

I was fascinated with the details at “The Wonders of the World”. Especially Loch Ness, kids were asking whether the monster really exists 🙂

Our event started at 9pm, and the whole Flower Dome was empty! You would know how difficult it is to take a family photo without getting photo-bombed, but we suddenly had so much space to maneuver and kids even did a mannequin challenge with director Uncle Kelvin!

This is the view which greets you when you step into Flower Dome. A Snow globe with a ballerina. Look down and you will see a bigger snow globe, surrounded by Christmas trees and toy towers.

A bigger Snow Globe awaits at the Flower bed.

Towers guarded by Nutcracker toy soldiers, I believed they would be just as illuminating in the day. So many folks were queuing to take selfies.
