After visiting the Gardens at the Bay, it left me longing for the more natural Botanic Gardens. So I implored to B to make a stop there one day. It was a brief stop but on the weekends the place is just too noisy and crowded. Too many folks screaming and much better on the weekdays. It’s not a library I know. But call me a fusspot, I like the quiet.
But just sitting at the square near the Botany Centre with the high ceiling and long ceiling fans on full spin, and watching the birds hop about was very relaxing. We usually go to the side nearer the visitor’s Centre but I like this side too. I just love the expanse of green and the old colonial buildings you can find near the Botany Centre where they have the labs cultivating orchids.
The new cafe Food for Thought looks a bit too crowded. The area used to have a food court with hawker food but now it’s all day breakfasts. Think I’ll soon get sick of all day breakfast menus if I see them everywhere.
