[Travel in December 2022 – January 2023]

A 2022 version after visiting in 2014!

It’s been a while since my last visit to Garden of the Morning Calm. I only been here twice, both time, in the winter and for their light festival. If I will be here during summer (not sure when because its too hot lol) I will come over for a visit to see the difference too! 🙂

even fake flower also so pretty haha

I am here a little early, the sky is still very bright

the bridge that shake….

hello Santa because i love Santa haha, i love Christmas, i love winter haha

the sky is blue and pretty!

oh and i love present too haha

and maybe hot air balloon too! haha

this is probably the only restaurant? I didn’t have my dinner here so I am not very sure about the menu and pricing 🙂

the sea is blue haha (i taken another photo when the sky get darker… which is a lot nicer)

many hearts

love this pretty tunnel!

choo choo train, is it a christmas thingy?

hello where is my glass slipper?

love is in the end

ajumma also love to take photo!

see the blue sea 😀

the most pretty light up garden ever!

I don’t remember seeing anything like this so pretty!

the prettiest light up, even sg one always not as good!

one more haha



close up!

from the ground flooring

so so so pretty!

I don’t think is very late but during winter, the sky get darker earlier.

with the snow on the floor, it looks even prettier

a little alice in the wonderland feel

old, young, cute, blessing all love to take photos here

So glad to be here again in winter. To be honest, its really too cold but too pretty too! 🙂
