Activities at Gardens by the Bay

[ Media Invite and Tickets Giveaway ]

We can always find something new at Gardens by the Bay (GBTB). Read our previous explorations here.

Last Sat, we pop over again to view some cactus at the new Sun Pavilion.

But, what caught our attention was the sounds of laughter and fun, kids were having a field day at FEO Children’s Garden!

Video (Link) : The water playground is always packed during weekends

Siblings went for the slides, countless times.

Spins and spiderwebs, you need to pop by the tree-house too!

Sun Pavilion is just next to Children’s Garden, and it house all sorts of cactus.

Cactus, round one, short one, tall one, curly one, brainy one haha.

Are they going to reach the ceiling fan soon? The tall ones are easily 5m in height.

Wildlife seems to be coming to GBTB too (including otters).

The brothers spend a good 20min following him foraging in the lily pond. We have not seen him before but it was a joy to watch him navigate the pond tiptoeing across the lily pads.

Skywalk was well, a windy experience. We can feel the OCBC Skywalk sways at it’s narrowest stretch. Boon Kang is not impressed and wish to go down quickly :p

Daddy’s selfie with Yee. A pity the haze is shouldering part of the CBD skyline.

Gardens by the Bay, Tulips and Satays

[ Sponsored ]

From now till 20th May, Tulipmania is in Full Bloom at Gardens by the Bay (GBTB, 滨海湾花园). Please go in the morning when the blooms are most enchanting.

GBTB’s management must have spotted hardworking Boon Yee planting his tulips earlier, our whole family were invited to see boy’s labour of LovE.

We quickly tour the cacti and baobab in Flower dome.

We are too early by two days, and most of the Tulips are still sleeping, so we make do with more family portraits. We are recommending you to pop by CheekieMonkies’s blog to see Tulips in full bloom 🙂

We all agree Flower Dome 很漂亮 (so pretty).

Windmill, clogs and almost everything else, is fun-worthy for SengkangBabies 🙂

This coming weekend, maybe you would like to bring Mummy down to admire the Tulips? We wish all the 妈妈 out there Happy Mother’s Day in advance 🙂

Since the real tulips have not bloom yet, we improvise with bookmarks 🙂

Next stop, Cloud Forest. We plan our entry to catch the mist at 4pm.
(daily timing 9am, 11am, 2pm, 4pm, 6pm and 8pm).

Awesome atmosphere, with the blurred vision, kids must have felt a tinge bit of chill, but their limbs were warming up to explore the surroundings 🙂

Cloud Walk, can you imagine yourself playing hide and seek with the clouds?

Someone added a train set at the ground floor.

As we climb higher, we saw some L-O-N-G slides in the distance, a New playground will be ready around 2013 Q3 or Q4.

Last stop is Satay by the Bay. This hawker centre styled joint tries to recreate the old Satay-club ambiance. We heard it can accommodate up to 1,000 diners but parking lots might be difficult to find in the evenings.

We ordered Rojak and Satays (since this is Satay by the Bay right?) from the other stall (not CitySatay). There are quite a few seafood BBQ stalls too.

(2013Nov the Roti John is good too)

Most food price starts from $4 onward, and our satay was $16 for 20 chicken sticks. Daddy loves the gravy, but too bad the parents only got 1 stick each !

That is the kids’ way of telling parents Satay is good 🙂

Satay by the Bay is actually nearer to Marina Barrage, did you see Tray “BAY” ? We would recommend dining here, and enjoying the sea breeze at the same time 🙂

If you run out of fun itinerary for the family, maybe Marina South will keep your family occupied for half a day.

Our Love story with Marina South started in 2008, when Marina Barrage just opened. Before that, Marina Bay MRT is the end of the line, full stop.

Since then, MBS, Gardens By The Bay have totally transformed the area :
