Singapore Garden Festival 2016

23 Jul 2016 – SGF Celebrating 10yrs


Wed: so it is time again to set up for the bicentennial SIN Garden Festival/SGF 23-31Jul 2016@Gardens By The Bay. And one my all time favourite displays so far is from SGF 2010@SuntecCity.


Have been helping out the Orchid Society/OSSEA with their MOR publication from 1999-2009 and setting up with their 2003 1st show The Singapore Orchid Festival@SBG, now the first and only tropical botanic garden on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List. For me it was the best orchid show in SIN ever!

After combining to be SGF, the show has not been the same and has lost some of it’s personal charm, despite the crowds. Appreciations to Peggy, Shelly and Calvin for these wonderful experiences and memories – 2006/OSSEA, 2008/OSSEA&SIN Shawl, 2010/IR, 2012/NA, 2014/CC and 2016/OSSEA

Thu: after US moves to seize $1.3b in assets of Malaysian fund, assets worth S$240m seized as part of SIN 1MDB probe…


The contrast to the above situation is me, where I get subsidies 🙂 Live within your means is what my father, the banker taught me!

Last night at SGF Flower Dome – pix downloaded

Sat: Happy 5th Birthday to #5 James and 8th to grandnephew Lucas.



Today at SGF Market Place where the OSSEA booths had more manpower than needed in tight spaces! Also being located near the door, the heat, noise and traffic there were just too much to deal with. Decided to call it the day.
