A glimpse into the rainforest. Glad that there are some areas in the park that are allowed to grow wild and free.

Fascinated by the buttress roots.

Back to the Casa Verde area with the beautiful fountains.

Walked a bit further up as we were attracted by the frangipani trees. When we were kids we were spooked by these trees. We were told that if you get the fragrance of the frangipani at night, it means a ghost is following you. And of course we got the scent all the time and we terrified out of our wits. My childhood was definitely filled with a lot of ghost stories. Often told by children.

I now see these frangipani trees everywhere so I guess the younger generation is not sticking to old taboos.

If we walked further down, we would get closer to the MRT. Definitely coming by MRT one day.

And then here we were at the Botanic Garden Shop. The books were tempting me big time but I figured these might be in the library?

Wow they sell Yankee Candles here. Been wondering whether these could be found in Singapore.

Beautiful little pots of Orchids and other plants sold outside the store.

Soothing lilac shade. Beautiful gradients of purple and the prettiest of the lot.

On our way out and back to the parking lot.
