Dahlia Dreams @ Gardens by the Bay

This year's Chinese New Year holidays seems to pass very fast as it falls on the mid-week and we have to squeeze in our visits to the temples and relatives within the short span of two days. Still, we allocated some time to check out the beautiful blossoms at the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay. It has gradually become part of our annual family event during the Chinese New Year festive period for the past 4 years.

Dahlia Dreams is back again with auspicious and festive plants like chrysanthemum, narcissus and cymbidium. Look out for the exquisite "Thousand Blooms" chrysanthemum arrangements which have been painstakingly cultivated over a period of at least one year to present the magnificent display of 500-1500 flowers blooming from a single plant!

Take a stroll underneath a gorgeous 35-metre-long archway of red lanterns and admire the Dahilas blooms alongside. I really enjoy walking through the walkway and immersing myself in the festive season. It should look very vibrant at night when the lanterns are lighted. A lovely instagram worthy spot too with your family or loved ones. Beware of photo bombs as there are a lot of people. I managed to squeeze in this family portrait fairly quick as we almost blocked the archway!

There are many scenic spots around the Flower Dome - from lanterns, floral display, elegant pavilions to rotating water wheels. 

We were lucky to be able to take a family photo at the pavilion as it was closed shortly after our turn. Crowd is expected hence visitors have to be a little patient. Thank you to the GBTB staff for helping us to take this picture.

Spotted black pigs and we have to squeeze in for a family picture together.

Besides taking family portraits, I love to take pictures of the children. It is for keep-sake and memories to see how much they have grown. Particularly now that they are older, its even harder to get them to 'co-operate' and pose in front of the camera. 

I love this photo of our boy against the trees backdrop. 

Attempting to capture some cool looking facial expression.of our girl. Got model look and seh?

Wishing everyone a Prosperous, Healthy and Smooth-sailing Year of the Oink Oink ahead!
