Singapore Botanic Garden

Last month I read incredibly many books. It was 8 in total. My poor eyes. I decided to give them off-day this weekend and instead, I brought them to see the beautiful natures out there.

After spending most of my time at home last weekend, it was time for me to go out. Hmm... I was thinking where to go. Shopping mall is a NO NO!!! I charged my camera's and hand phone's battery, making sure both appliances were fully charged before leaving home. I brought my backpack filling them with those two items, big water bottle, wallet, and mosquito repellent. Where did I go with those stuffs?

"Singapore Botanic Gardens"

Yes, I went the above place this afternoon :) It was one of my dreams to visit this place ^^

I dragged my hubby along since the weather wasn't that hot and I guessed he too, needing some sunlight to burn his skin. Air-conditioner and shades had pampered him too much. Didn't want to disappoint me, he too, went along with me.

Been living here for 13 years, not even once I'd stepped in to the place. I heard about it often from my friends and even did some research on how to go there, but it took me almost a year ago. However, only today I managed to visit the place :) Better still. It was even my hubby's first time - after living all through his life, and only me, could drag him along. Hahaha.... :P

With the new MRT Circle line, it had never been so easy to go there. We changed the MRT in Serangoon and from there, it took five stops to reach the Botanic Garden station. Once we went out, the above place was what we saw.

The place was BIG! We didn't walk the entire place, only some area with one destination on my head. On the way there we just enjoyed the beauty of the natures surrounding us.

Below, please find the photos taken for your viewing pleasure! :)

Those butterflies :) as if they were waiting for you to take their pictures. Very beautiful. I love them.

Picture 7th you captioned "What a cute creature!!!" BUT all I find your 'cute creature' has done is perforate the poor flower. They are seasonal pest, we learn here. cute jinx could have been suiting caption. ;)

I love 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 12 and 14th picture. :)

Thank you Sonam for your comments and photos evaluation :) I forgot about grasshopper as you mentioned earlier. Because for me, it reminded me of Yoo Jae Suk, one of the Running Man member who is always called 'Grasshopper' and wearing green all the time ^^ Hope you had a wonderful weekend too!

Nature could offer everything we need. Submerged in its beauty, happiness blooms within, that is all human wants ultimately. Beautiful flowers. Nice treat from you. Thanks.
