SINGAPORE GARDEN FESTIVAL 2008

Singapore Garden Festival 2008 held at the Suntec City Convention Hall from 25 Jul - 1 Aug. I went there with my mom and ended up with 4 pots of orchids and 1 pot of serracenia (carnivorous plant). Tickets were so much cheaper than the previous festival (which I attended too), and it was half-priced on weekdays! Besides the giant installations, there were also entries for the ikebana competition and inter-school ikebana with a recycling theme,  and lots of retail and exhibition booths.

More pictures here in my ALBUM.
