Chinese Garden: Lantern Festival

We went to the Chinese Garden last Friday, that day was supposed to be the exact day for mid-autumn festival.

It was very crowded in the Chinese Garden this year. Maybe because of their advertisements on TV and newspapers that attracted the crowd. We had to queue up for a very long time to buy our tickets.

I brought my lantern along. The one I bought in Chinatown.

Right after passing the bridge, we saw lots of beautiful lanterns. The bridge itself was also very beautifully decorated.

Although I don't like insects at all, but I have to admit that these lanterns look so CUTE!!!

Even the lights also look so CUTE lol.

A bazaar in the Chinese Garden. So special!!!

Look at the crowd...So crowded!!!

But I like it~~. Because more people come means less mosquitoes can bite me...Hahahahaaaa.

I bought my pair of red horns in one of the stores in this bazaar. A bear with horns???

Like this?
Be afraid!!! Heee...

I was excited to see the mask changing performance, but they didn't perform that day...
So I found the performances that day quite boring, I only like this performance and the girl is so pretty!!!

More beautiful lanterns...

The Panda family. I love Panda bears!!!

Click on the photo to see clearer image. Isn't it beautiful?

A lantern of Maya Pyramid.

Maya Pyramid from Greece.

The Sphinx from Egypt.

The Taj Mahal from India.

The Blue Mosque from Turkey.

The Eiffel Tower from France.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa from Italy.

There were still a lot of lanterns that I didn't get a chance to capture. Because my camera's battery was flat and I forgot to bring my spare battery along!!! So we just walked around and enjoy looking at all the beautiful lanterns.

Biennale trees along Orchard road.

I went to Orchard and saw these Biennale trees along the road. They were dressed in red and white polka dotted strips of cloth, as part of the Singapore Biennale. Actually they have already been wrapped for a month. But this time I really took a closer look at them and realize that these trees made Orchard road quite pretty.

Due to the recent hazy weather in Singapore, the sky looks gloomy all the time, it also made my eyes feel very dry and irritating.

My hives is getting much better, only left some scars because of scratching from last time.

Thanks for all the comments that wished for me to get better!

Recently I'm addicted to these fruity, heavenly chocolates.
