explore: botanic garden (1)

on sunday, i felt really bored and lazy. first i thought to just stay in my room and enjoy my personal time before night classes start on monday, but in the other thoughts i felt wasted and useless -  the weather was so fine and sunny. finally i made up my mind to go visiting in botanic garden, which we never go before.

i did little searching before that and found out that botanic garden is the only botanic garden in the world that opens from 5am till 12 midnight every single day of the year, and no admission fee!! except for their national orchid garden. 6 years staying in singapore, we got to know all this information on sunday! what a shame..

we were so close to the mother's nature and definitely feeling relaxing while enjoying all the green scenery.
i started to take out my dslr and snapped photos like a crazy woman. everything seem so magical!! especially the flowers & plants

 as we walked further, we noticed that there was a banner mentioning international music day was going to happen in symphony lake starting 6pm. we rushed over to join the crowd and found a place near to the stage and enjoying all the classical music for more than an hour

we should have bring our own picnic basket and mat huh?

we only managed to explore quarter of botanic garden..hoping to do exploration again end of the month as concert is happening again in symphony lake. this round, we will remember our picnic basket and mat.

what you do on sunday?

I'm so glad that you decided to pull yourself out of bed! Usually when I'm feeling lazy but I know that I should get up, I just go for a coffee run or something, and sometimes that works. Visiting a botanic garden is such a great way to get your day going! And they're such beautiful places to be too :) which means lots of photo opps ;) I'm sure you'll have many more Sundays when you won't feel like doing anything, so it's a good thing that you still have parts of the botanic garden left to explore :D This Sunday I... went to a cafe with my dad and younger brother. We had waffles and delicious drinks! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
