One of my favorite parts of Singapore (mommy calls ‘the city of the future’), is the wonderful Botanical Gardens. I am pretty sure it’s one of the largest I have ever visited.
The first part of the garden is the Health area; it shows all different kinds of plants that can help cure different things. There are so many plants coming from heaps of other places around the globe! We saw plants that cure things from headaches, urinary infections, or even the measles and bronchitis! Some even help eliminate cancer! You usually don’t think that an ordinary leaf can help cure those things!
After the Health area, we visit the tropical forest where there are lots of nice trees. There is an indoor rain forest that is cool and misty after a long walk to get there! This area kind of reminds me of home in Florida too.
Then, (this is my favorite part) we walk to the orchid area!! Once I set foot in this place, my mouth drops wide open! There are so many words floating in my head that describe this huge home for orchids — amazing, beautiful, gorgeous, pretty, lovely, attractive, enchanting, appealing, delightful, irresistible, fascinating, and most of all COLORFUL! Orchids are my favorite type of flower so this feels like heaven. There are SO MANY different colors and varieties!! Well, I immediately pull out the camera and start taking photos (as though the orchids are movie stars and I’m the paparazzi). I could just stand and take photos of this one orchid forever and when everyone told me to keep moving, the same would happen to the orchid right next to it! Literally, I am amazed and impressed with how many orchids there are in the botanical garden! There is one section in the orchid garden for famous people who have visited. Some of which include Princess Diana and the Duke & Duchess, William & Kate. I take plenty of photos of those too! Since I have been learning a lot of neat things in my photography class in school, I take advantage of it as you can see!
