gardens by the bay - part two

so the first thing that greeted us at the second dome was this HUGE waterfall. it sent sprays of water flying everywhere and the air was thus considerably cooler. at one point i even felt cold. with the amount of people and limited space, it was quite difficult to capture the entire waterfall. i guess this is the best i could come up with. =P

i didn't really like how the water made the floor so slippery. nor how mist was sprayed at almost every corner, although it did make the place look cloudy and dreamy. there were lesser varieties of flowers here; majority were orchids. which wasn't surprising considering that they prefer humid areas. the orchids were gorgeous though. =)

saw quite a lot of pitcher plants. i love those. my house needs a lot of it. lols. there was also a section in the dome on global warming. seriously, all those floods warming is REAL! tsk.

anyway, see for yourself.
there were two sections of i-don't-know-what-you-call-these bridges. which almost gave me a heart attack. they look so......unsafe. you have been warned.
we didn't spend as much time here since it was mostly greens and lesser flowers to shoot. then headed for dinner! heard about the expensive food so i was pleasantly surprised to see texas chicken there. thankfully they have a fish burger for me. -_-

walked around the exterior gardens while waiting for the 7.45pm supertree light show. they paled considerably in comparison with what was inside the domes. good things are never free i suppose. 
last but not least, the supertree light (and sound) show apparently starts are 7.45pm and 8.45pm, and lasts for about 10 minutes. it was.....disappointingly horrible and a waste of time imho. music was played and the supertrees light up in different colors. sorry i don't find that interesting leh. ~_~
on a side note, it was really nice to see the completed supertrees after hearing and seeing so much about them for so many years long. (yes i was somehow involved in this project back in RT.) to have seen photos of the flat ground, then the construction works, during installation, and finally see it standing so prettily now. it means a lot to me to have had a tiny part in building these iconic structures. can you imagine how proud and accomplished the main project team must be feeling now? project work FTW! =D
