Gardens By The Bay (Part II - Cloud Forest & Night View)

This post is a continuation of GBB (Part I).

After the Flower Dome, we walked over to Cloud Forest, which is just a few metres away.
The moment we stepped in Cloud Forest, we stepped into another land, we left Singapore.


This 58 metres tall man-made water fall greeted us at the entrance.

 Jaws dropped and left hanging cos' we don't know how to close them back.....  had never seen such a
E N O R M O U S concrete cylinder covered with plants;
with 153,000 m³ of water gushing down (approx. 60 Olympic swimming pools!!)

An important note to my readers - if you like to visit the Cloud Forest, please bring along a cardigan or whatever for keeping yourselves warm.  It's 23°C to 25°C, to add on, there are blowers here and there which drops the temperature even lower, so you want to enjoy your stroll and won't want to catch a cold!

YES!!!  We made an escape from summer heat!
Floor's wet, but not slippery.


We were going to the top of the waterfall,
by lift (thank god).
See, Luis's having my knitted shawl.


Yup, we walked on the bridges at later part.


This model wanna be pic taken just before we stepped into the lift.  Was trying to be funny and see how I'll look like in photo.
Not too bad I suppose, what do you all think? Heehee......

Clear enough, we wouldn't lost our way lolxx......

We found this fugly plant which looks like a cluster of green earthworms, eeeks........ goosebumps.....

Cloudy and dreamy...........

Awe.................some................ and COLD





Tiny MBS!

COLD..........

Cold..............  but totally enjoy it.  If only Singapore's weather can be like this.....

Look down........... heehee.......

I was okay with heights. 

My sis's back view, looking cool like tomb rider (botak and on the plump side though :X)



Took escalator down to "Crystal Mountain".  It's nice but not too fascinating for us as we had seen natural limestone caves in overseas.

Every single spot was stunning for photo taking.  So please bring along your camera and enjoy clicking away.  If you wanna use your smart phone, please bring extra battery.  I went in with my phone charged at 90%, left the place with 6%  -.-


Sun was setting.





This pic looked as if the tree has got bow ribbons ^^


Pics at "Secret Garden"


Semi-heart shaped leaves which looked as if they got blings in the middle.



Unwillingly, we left the cool-mist conservatory.
Now, some pics on the architectures ~~

  
Discovered beauty in Singapore and at the moment, I felt proud being a Singaporean.


Pics taken while on our way for dinner


Famished............


Yummy kuay teow (rice noodles) with egg sauce

Minced pork with long beans

 Prawn balls with mayo wasabi sauce

Sinfully delicious Peking Duck skin with omelette wraps
The rest of the half duck was served with sour plum sauce but forgotten to take pic.

Mango with sago dessert.

DONE!!

And we were just in time to watch OCBC Garden Rhapsody's light up at around 8pm





I always thought strolling in gardens are waste of time, Gardens By The Bay is an exception.  Have yet to explore the whole garden, will and must visit again ^^
