Singapore Botanical Garden – yay!

Saturday, November 7th, 2015

Saturday morning we went to the Singapore Botanical Garden, first time in a long while for me. It’s now only 10 minutes away from our new apartment, so no excuses to not go – it’s beautiful!!

We finally convinced Zen to come with us!
