“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair”― Kahlil Gibran
After completing time with Kase, another amazing friend was made and kept, Christie's dear gal pal "A". A came and picked us up from our hotel, and introduced us to the lighter, lusher side of Singapore.
Gardens by the Bay are a gorgeous collection of flora and fauna. The outside area is free to enjoy for the public, however if visiting the conservatories, there is an admission fee, but it is well worth it. We sauntered into the Cloud Forest first, and were pleasantly greeted by a full facial mist. It felt incredibly refreshing as the sun cranked up the heat of the pavement outside.

The Cloud Forest is a 35-metre tall mountain covered in lush vegetation shrouding the world’s tallest indoor waterfall showcases plant life from tropical highlands up to 2,000-metres above sea level.
I could quote more and more, but I think the pictures best capture this natural beauty. Enjoy.
Christie discovers an orange beauty, and C&A strike a pose on one of the balconies.
We enjoyed the view from our cool, temperate mountain, gazing out at the Singapore Flyer. The Flyer is modeled after the London Eye, and is actually 98 feet taller.
The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.
Below, is by far my favorite flower.
It was like a little lion, opening up to roar.
These lionesses, ready to prowl over to our next garden!
