Every year, on the 2nd day of the Lunar New Year, our family will, instead of visiting relatives, do some "child friendly" activities with our children. For the past few years we have visited the various museums in Singapore (Art, History, Asian Civilisation Museum) and the zoo.
This year we opted for :
This is Singapore's largest flower festival, and it showcases over one million blooms of more than one thousand species.
We ventured out early, to get a head start, as well as to avoid the scorching afternoon sun. Here are some of the photos taken at the Flower Show:
Little D infront of the word "Chun" meaning spring, made entirely out of flowers
S,N and D in front of "mice eating rice'
Swans made completely out of blooms.
There were also other very popular "pavilions" at the flower show, namely the sunflower pavilion which featured hundreds of sunflowers, as well as one specially for Valentines Day, where blooms were arranged into heart shapes. However the queue to those were way too long, so we did not bother joining them just for a photo shot. Orchid lovers will also not be disappointed as there were so many varities featured and all were in full bloom!
Well, if you have the time and enjoy flowers, a visit to this flower will not leave you disappointed. It runs until 17 February and is located at the Imbiah Lookout, just beneath the giant Merlion on Sentosa Island.

I can tell Little D loves flowers. After we went for our 1st reunion this year, I asked her the next day what she liked about dinner. Her reply was: The flowers!!
I must admit that the flowers that they had were very tastefully displayed.
Just yesterday, I mentioned that I had to throw away the roses that had already withered. She refused to let me do it. She told me: "Mummy, those flowers are not dead! They are just looking at the floor."
