It's been really long since I last left the house to somewhere nice. Except for school which I have to go every day, I haven't really been out cause there's tons of homework to do and while I'm doing up this post, there's still homework calling out to me:<
But anyways, I kinda contemplated whether or not to go out today because of the work I have to do but I went ahead as my Prelims is happening this Thursday and I really wanna just relax for a day. So yeah.
Woke up at around 7.30am as the bus was gonna leave at 9.00am and I gotta get ready hehe. I'm not gonna go in detail about how I get ready but I finally got to use my Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in shade Addiction. I have been waiting for the right time to use it and I finally had the chance to!! The shade was actually not something that I would be comfortable to wear out but I went ahead with it cause if you never try, you'll never know. And it turns out to be so pretty and I was so amazed by it!! And I wore a simple blue crop top from F21 and my dark denim pants from H&M. And featuring my really cute Batman socks HAHAHAH.
So actually my mum and I followed our GRC on this trip and the tickets were priced at $13 each for both Cloud Forest and Flower Dome. The bus ride to Gardens by The Bay consisted of me listening to music and playing around with the Snapchat filters.
Pretty soon, we've reached Gardens by The Bay! After they've given us the tickets, it was all free and easy and we gotta meet back at the meeting place at 12.30pm. Initially, my mum and I wanted to go to Flower Dome first but the crowd was insane so we decided to go to Cloud Forest first. As expected, Cloud Forest didn't have much of a crowd and it was easier to take pictures there hehehehe.
Upon going to Cloud Forest a few times, I've never actually took a photo by the really huge and cold fountain and I finally got to yay. I was feeling extra touristy today!
To be very honest, Cloud Forest to me doesn't really have much as compared to Flower Dome>< But inside, it is extra cooling and super nice to walk around in that temperature. So this time, we took the lift to the 6th floor and we explored from there. There were a lot of nice flowers there as we're walking and the view of Marina Bay and the architecture of the whole dome is absolutely pretty!
I'll just let the pictures speak for itself hehe.
See I wasn't lying when I said the view was great! The clouds were so fluffy HAHAHA. As we continued walking, we got to the place where we were just beside the fountain and I also really wanted to take photo since forever and thanks to the not much crowd, I was able to do it today!!
|I shut my eyes because the sunlight already made my eyes looked small xD|
As we were exploring, I was casually talking to my mum about life and also some interesting and happy events of my life hehehe. As we were walking, we passed my fav spot of Cloud Forest where you can see pretty small flowers! And a spot that's very nice for photos!
Very quickly which I meant around 20 min, we exited Cloud Forest and went to Flower Dome! This season is the The Orchid Extravaganza! There were so many types of orchids everywhere in almost every colour. Upon entering, we were greeted by the yellows and reds orchids. It was so pretty!!
Frankly, sometimes I get really pissed off with crowds and I almost always curse them in my head because I just don't get how can one be stuck at a particular place for so longg. But to my surprise, my mood today was really great and I didn't even get pissed HAHAAHAH. Probably made the whole trip a lot easier to not deal with my crankiness. But at one particular spot was super crowded because there was this very pretty wall of orchids. I did caught a picture of it but it wasn't at the best angle.
As I've said before, this season is the The Orchid Extravaganza, so I took a few pictures which I thought were quite nice. I didn't take as much photos because in general I appreciated the pretty flowers with my eyes and also my mum did take a lot of photos. LET ME APOLOGIZE in advance because I really like purple so most of what I took were purple orchids :x
Not a lot of photos hehehe so I'm strongly encouraging you guys to visit Gardens by The Bay to see these beautiful orchids!! If I'm not wrong it should be lasting till 31 July!
Apart from orchids, they also have other flowers which I'm unsure of their names except for Daisies :D Daisies are like my absolute favourite flowers and those that look like daisies too! I'm sorry cause I'm super terrible at the names of the flowers>< GAHHHH THE DAISIES WERE SO NICE OMGG
After finishing seeing almost the flowers, we snapped a picture together with the orchids and thank you to the lovely lady who was so friendly and also for taking such a nice picture hehee!!
After that, it started to rain a little and it kinda stopped as we were on the way to Lau Pa Sat. Okay I'm not very sure if you guys had heard of that place before but it was apparently an old hawker centre in Singapore and they renovated it and it looks so modern right now!!
There are so many food choices there for you people to choose from and it ranges from all sorts of cuisine!! As my mum and I were exploring the place, the first thing that caught my eyes were the 2 korean words, BINGSU [im lazy to find the korean words so yeah ;x] and I immediately walked over and checked out what flavours they had. So my mum and I decided that after our proper food, we could have bingsu yay and I was so happy bout it!!
I had Miso Ramen which sadly didn't taste so good and there was way too much oil to my displeasure haiz :( But after we finished eating, we walked over to the Bingsu area and ordered the Mango flavoured one. My mum and I have never tried mango flavoured ones before so we've decided to try it. As the person was preparing it, he looked really concentrated HAHAHA and the end result was super pretty!!
The mangoes were super duper fresh and they tasted so good!!! So was the bingsu too!! I absolutely love bingsu which their ice are induced with milk!!! Taste super milky and I love it so much!! That costed us $7.90 and it was so worth it!! Like I probably wouldn't mind paying more for it because it really taste super nice and gosh now I wanna have another bowl of it!!!!! That place is called 'Gangnam Bingsu'.
So if you happen to be Lau Pa Sat, you should totally check this Bingsu place out!! I couldn't believe that even a hawker could have a Bingsu stall!!!!!! Absolutely amazing goshhh! It is totally affordable and is definitely worth your money!
Lau Pa Sat is located at 18 Raffles Quay, 048582. It is open 24 hours!! And the nearest MRT station is Raffles Place MRT. You gotta Google the directions hehehe cause I'm not that sure to tell you><
Here's some images from Google!!
I think everyone should at least check out this place once!!
So that's about it for this post! Hope you guys liked it and also that's what a Sunday out would be like for me hehehehe(: To all that'll have their examinations soon, all the very best and I hope you'll do well! Today was splendid for me hehehe! In the meantime, stay awesome and be happy always!
Hugs & Kisses !
