A dash of springtime festive Hanami beauty at Sakura Matsuri 2020, Gardens by the Bay.
The gloomy truth of it is, spring 2020 has been pretty awful so far. Even for a country with no real “springtime” like Singapore.
Yeah. I don’t want to mention the name of that thing in this post. But unless you’ve been buried under a mountain of toilet paper rolls for a month, I’m sure you know what I’m referring to.
But, life must still go on, as everyone says. And why shouldn’t it? As long as one takes sufficient measures.
Putting aside masks counting, I thus ventured down to Gardens by the Bay Flower Dome this evening to check out Sakura Matsuri 2020. What I’m pleased to say is, apart from the requisite temperature checks, everything looked and felt like any other weekday at Gardens.
The Hanami displays, naturally, were gorgeous too. Actually, I felt this year’s display is the best one I’ve seen so far; that is, compared to 2018 and 2016. In spite of the mood, the teams at Gardens went all out to present the best. They truly deserve a round of applause from everyone.
Sakura “Mankai” Everywhere at Flower Dome
Other than himself and his cutesy animal army, other scenes related to the Momotaro legend are scattered around the main display area too. Don’t miss these photo ops if you’re visiting!
