National Orchid Garden Singapore - World's Largest Orchid Display

ABBEY: We got 3 pairs of complementary tickets to Singapore Orchid  Garden. Thanks to Nparks app for the reward. It’s a different world when you enter it which is inside Singapore Botanic Gardens. I really enjoyed and took pictures of the colorful flowers. There are orchids everywhere. The way they were grown is awesome. 

For me the main attraction are the orchids which were named after foreign dignitaries who visited Singapore.Dendrobium Rodrigo Roa Duterte which has a violet-red color was named after Philippines 16th president. Others were for the Queen Elizabeth, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Former US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, and Nelson Mandela. The experience is relaxing and you’ll appreciate nature more.


WILL: Orchid is the National Flower of Singapore and they do a lot of research and breeding to let its natural beauty to shine. Yeah! They alloted a huge space of land to showcase it to the world. 


Of course in National Orchid Garden, you can marvel the different colors, sizes and species of this delicate flower. Why I described it as a delicate flower? I saw my eldest brother how he took care of those. He evens talks to them just to produce flowers. It is crazy but it is true! 

I know Abbey loves orchids and I find it ridiculous to pay a fee of $5 to see this garden. But hey when I am inside, $5 is not enough. Gosh! Singapore really put an effort to display, organize and take care of this huge facility. 

What do you expect inside? A wide array of orchids, of course. 
-Crane Fountain will welcome you. 
-Enchanted Garden cradles a huge white orchid, it is like she is the princess of the garden. 
-Arches that were crawled by diffent types of National Flower. Perfect for photo shoot! 
-VIP Orchid Garden housed the different orchids named after important people that visits Singapore. President Duterte has one of those! 

One of the perks in participating the Singapore NPark’s Coast-To-Coast Challenge is to receive different kinds of freebies or vouchers and one of those that we got is a pair of tickets to National Orchid Garden! Thanks NParks! Yey!!! 

Some spaces is under renovation. We will for sure come back to see the additions to it!

Mutton is quite pricey. To meet the budget and take off some stuffs out the cupboard, Abbey opened up one can of Delimondo corned beef. 

The taste? Not compromised! It is like you are having a beef/mutton briyani for a fraction of a price! Love it! Thanks Abbey for the brilliant idea! Next week again! Haha!

White Restaurant | The Original Sembawang White Beehoon at Jewel Changi Airport

ABBEY: I always want to bring Wilma to White Restaurant at Punggol Settlement but the queue is long. Enter their new branch at Jewel. 

We were given a table only after a couple of minutes. We got their signature white bee hoon and horfun. Both came in a platter and you can see chunks of ingredients and you know you’re in for a treat. The taste is great. The slight char on the horfun noodles gave the smokey taste specially when mixed with the sauce. 

The white bee hoon has a smooth texture and I really enjoyed the prawns in it. Make sure to ask for their chilli sauce. I think we asked for refill 3 times. It is that good.

WILL: Are you confused where to eat at Jewel Changi Airport and you want something that is value for money and not just a hype? Do you trust us? Choose to dine at White Restaurant. 

What is the best meal to get? It is their White Beehoon. They do not lie that this is their best seller! One of the best! Their Horfun is good too! The smoky and fresh feeling of the noodles were there! The chili complements well with the meal! 

Darn! Will go there again for sure! There are many diners but they are quite good and fast to accommodate all.
