Tulipmania 2014

DSC_0455

I love flowers in general, but tulip is not my favourite. I have always admired a dandelion. However tulip always has something interesting because of its simple but sophisticated look. Considering these flowers are mostly from The Netherlands, I'd say, only for those who wants to splurge on special occasion.

Tulipmania was brought back from a successful floral display last year at the Flower Dome, Gardens by the Bay. Depicting landscapes from the country where it is well known of, the organizers have built some of the famous trademarks like the windmill, houses and hyacinths.

The splendid display was exhibited from 14 April to 4 May 2014. It was another 3 consecutive rest days when nothing was on my planner. Quite a nice day, the sun was hot and it was a good day to go out. I went solo again and booked online at the price of $12. I brought my backpack/stroller bag with the camera and 2 lenses inside. I opted to bring this one from the camera bag because I get sprain during a long walk carrying a heavy bag on my back.

It was my third time entering this dome. AC was blowing hard. I could always feel the low temperature as soon as I enter. At the entrance there were some curious people checking out this miniature, very detailed and the colours are lovely.

I went straight to the miniatured park exhibiting Dutch landscape. KLM has brought a wide variety of tulips in the dome land. Mostly colours are in red, orange, yellow and purple. They also had hyacinths. I know I've seen hyacinths in my country in my childhood days but its not that famous.

It was a big event, they hosted a photography contest and I sent 2 entries for the KLM trip for 2 to The Netherlands. Its supposed to be a creative photo but mine was all boring. I thought the caption might work but it didn't. Jr made it and I thought it really was good though. The mechanics said something creative for both photo and caption: Fly me to Amsterdam with @KLM because I want to ---- free context. 
Jr's version was I want to lay my eyes on:

A-msterdam's 
M-agnanimous
S-ights
T-antalizes
E-veryones eyes
R-embrandtplein
D-am Square
A-rtis Zoo and 
M-usuems too! ... just to name a few! 
there, plus tag 3 friends.

I felt satisfied after about 2 hours of taking photos of everything I want there. Then when I was on my way out I realised I haven't fully seen whats in the Wild, Wild West part where the cactus are planted... Catch it on my next entry!
