Sentosa Flowers 2013
Sentosa Flowers is back again! Started in 2005, this is the most celebrated flower exhibition during Chinese New Year.
Themed as “Joys of Spring”, this year’s exhibition was held along Palawan Beach which showcases the wonders of creation with thousands of tropical and spring flowers in a myriad of species presented in a natural outdoor setting. This year, I brought my Ah Yi, my Grandpa and my boyf with me to enjoy the flowers!
Giant Floral Carpet
The most beautiful attraction this year is the Giant Floral Carpet. It is made up of 30,000 fresh flowers and measures 50-metres by 40-metres. In the middle, you will be greeted with Zodiac Water Snake floral display that is made up of Cuphea, Carnation and Forget-me-not flowers.
Story of Nuwa
A lady named Nuwa vowed to help the villagers. She collected 7 coloured stones and melted them into one giant rock to seal the broken sky. The beauty of the earth was restored and the villages were overjoyed and invited people of all nations to have a great celebration to welcome spring.
Not everything here is flora and fauna. Famous sand sculptor JOOheng leads a team of volunteers to create the longest Glittering Sandy Snake sculpture along Palawan Beach.
Take photo with REAL Snakeeeeeeeee
It is real! Oh mine, my legs shiver when I see it. And I only have the courage to take photos from this distance. This snake will be here at 11am, 2pm and 4pm for you to take photo with it. Have fun! 😛
The String Garden
This special garden is presented by Tivoli Garden (Denmark). String garden (or Kokedama) means moss ball, is a type of Japanese bonsai. The plant is transferred out of its pot and into a boil of soil held together by moss and string. They are then suspended in the air creating a spectacular sight.
Everywhere you will see snake. The rainbow snake is a visual feast for the eyes.
Spring Comes Alive
Spring comes alive with flowers blooming and little bugs skittering into the walk! Have fun taking a walk in the garden!
Four Seasons of LOVE
For the first time, you will be greeted with FOUR love gardens this year. Featuring a spring, summer, autumn and winter love garden, each garden is uniquely decorated according to its theme.
Don’t forget to cross the bridge to the southern most part of Singapore and take a look at the beautiful sunflowers which will only bloom for 10 days!
