WILDCATS LOST AMIDST PINK PINEAPPLES IN SINGAPORE

By on April 1st, 2018

One fuzzy circle surrounded by soft petals can take your breath away. Imagine a 250-acre sprawl of flowers. I was lost in a fragrant paradise, except that it was right on earth – Gardens by the Bay in Singapore. One day is not enough to feast your eyes on the vibrant floral carpet that seems to sprawl into infinity.

Inside the Flower Dome

Here, flowers gather in astoundingly beautiful forms. One of them is the floral dome that paints the greenhouse in mesmerizing hues. Did I mention that it is the world’s largest glass greenhouse?

“I was surprised to spot ladies’ ear drops. Then I realized that Mother Nature had opened up her jewel box – these ear drops’ are uniquely shaped fuchsia flowers. The name of this colour is derived from the flower’s name”.

Lady’s Ear Drops

Tulips

Dahlia

I also saw colourful inverted bulbs standing on stalks. Surprisingly they had ‘lips’ in their name. Of course, I am talking about tulips. Then I spotted gorgeous flowers with concentric circles of petals in varying shades of pink. I rediscovered the Dahlia, all over again. There was also a generous sprinkling of prose-inspiring roses.

Rainforest inside the Gardens by the bay

I wandered out of the greenhouse and into the rainforest. Yes, you read that right! It was a lush rainforest nestled in a garden. There was a 35-metre waterfall draped in a skirt of gushing water decorated with ferns and orchids. Flaming crimson flamingo flowers were dancing around. This is also known as the Anthurium flower. The vibrant colour palette was made complete by purple orchids and yellow butterflies. Surprisingly, these butterflies wear petals with wine-coloured spots. These flowers are also known as Oncostele Wildcats.

Venus Flytrap

Pitcher Plant 

Insects drink from some flowers but there are petal-wearing carnivores that insects wouldn’t dare to touch. The Venus Flytrap looked like a bunch of long-toothed mouths ready to swallow adventurous insects. The Pitcher plant looked like a tube waiting for a curious insect to take a peek. That would be the most dangerous peek ever. This was a little overwhelming for me.

Ginger Lily

Lady’s Slipper

I turned my attention to a pink pineapple. Then, I did a double take. It was a blushing ginger lily. Sometimes, the Creator enjoys surprising us. Speaking of surprises, I spotted a lady’s slipper. For a moment, I looked around for Cinderella. Then I realized that the slipper was, in fact, an orchid”.

Super Grove Tree

Then I chanced upon the most amazing sight. Giant trees rose all around me. There was something incredibly unique about these trees. Their roots seemed to stick in the air. I found that they were not made of wood but solar photovoltaic cells to harvest energy from the sun. The trees were covered by over 200 varieties of bromeliads, orchids and ferns and tropical flowering climbers. It was a stunning example of vertical gardening. At night, the trees glowed like giant optic-fibre torches. A 22-metre high OCBC Skyway gracefully curved between two of the Super Trees. It was an irresistible invitation to enjoy a view of the garden from the top of a tree.

I didn’t have the heart to leave Gardens by the Bay, so I stayed back for one last spectacle – the Garden Rhapsody show. There are two shows, one at 7.45pm and the second at 8.45pm. The light show is free – no tickets are required.

I finally ticked Gardens by the Bay off my bucket list. It should be on yours, if it isn’t already. You can make an online booking for this once-in-a-lifetime experience at www.gardensbythebay.com.sg or www.visitsingapore.com and enjoy good deals. Look forward to a great deal of fun!

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive. Was thinking about starting using analytics. Do you recommend it?
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Keep up the good work on your blog.

    What you posted made a bunch of sense. However, think on this, suppose you composed a catchier post title?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you
    added a post title to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean A travel blog on bird
    watching & nature. is kinda boring. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they
    create article titles to grab viewers interested.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.
