On a weekend two weeks ago, we decided to head down to the much talked about Christmas Wonderland at Gardens By The Bay to soak it all up.  Initially, I had some reservations about being part of the potentially crazy crowd with two boys in tow.  It was a good thing we arrived just before long lines started forming outside car parks.

What is Christmas without a little carolling against such festive backdrop.  To me this was the best way to get into the festive mood.

In every corner, we were delighted by all sorts of festive displays and decorations.

Not just at eye level but if you looked closer, Christmas was in the air too!

The evening actually turned out slightly different from what I expected.  It was better.

We did not get to the Christmas attractions like the rides, the Santa Cottage, the carnival games and so on (which was probably the whole point of why the rest of the crowd was there) but the boys had real simple fun just by running about freely and getting all sweaty around the park.

As usual, it was a daunting task to get Baby J to keep still for photos.  Even Gor Gor J tried his best but failed.

As night fell, the whole park lit up to another kind of beauty.  I loved how the super trees were glowing in such gorgeous colours.

However, what my favourite shot of the evening got to be this “not-at-all-christmasy” looking super tree.  For some reason, it reminded me of Enid Blyton’s Magic Faraway Tree.  There is just something mystical about it, don’t you think?

For the disappointing lack of useful information about this event itself, here is where you can find out more 🙂
