It’s such a strange time, isn’t it. Due to the coronavirus, here in Singapore, it’s now the second week of the “circuit breaker” period (a kind of partial lockdown) and an unusual sort of silence has descended on our sunny city. It’s not anything I’ve ever experienced, so I’m trying to take it one day at a time, as I’m sure most of us are, too.
On a personal level, when I’m not busy figuring out this work from home situation, I’ve been finding solace from all of it by lazing on the couch watching TV and movies, reading books that are on my to read pile and catching up with my favourite blogs and Youtube channels. It keeps me positive and helps to lighten the reality of this crisis.
Recently, I’ve been admiring lots of social media content related to spring from different places around the world and really enjoyed the lightness and positivity associated with the season. So I’m joining in with this floral photo diary from my visit to one of the newer attractions at Gardens by the Bay, Floral Fantasy!
Floral Fantasy opened in early 2019 and it’s a smaller attraction compared to the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest, but it’s extremely pretty and delightful and is clearly created for visitors to take as many photos with flowers as you want. :) The attraction also ends with a 4D ride.
Note: Floral Fantasy requires paid admission. All related links are included at the end of this post.
After leaving the Floral Fantasy attraction, you will walk directly to its attached cafe called Cafe Aster and a small flower shop if you’re inspired to bring some flowers back! I love these two elements, it’s a perfect way to end the visit. The cafe is simple and relaxing, with flower themed treats and large window views of the open park outside. I stopped for a break and ordered a waffle with ice cream and a cup of tea. :)
Note: Cafe Aster and the flower shop are open to the public, you can enter both without visiting the Floral Fantasy attraction.
