Singapore Garden Festival 2014

This year's Singapore Garden Festival (in Gardens by the Bay) is certainly held in a way bigger scale than the one in 2012 (in Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre). The previous one took up two floors of exhibition space, while this year's festival is spread out to three areas: (1) Orchid Extravaganza in Flower Dome, (2) Marketplace at the Supertree Grove and (3) various garden displays at The Meadow. It was quite a bad idea to go to this event on a weekend, because it was super crowded.

ITE Art Show

Every two year, the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) will put together an art exhibition to showcase the artwork of students and staff from its colleges. This year, it coincides with the National Day Rally, which is also held at ITE Headquarters. It was a proud moment when our Prime Minister highlighted the art piece titled “Aspirations” in his National Day Rally speech.

Balloon sculptures decorated the ferns.

Handmade flowers using recycled plastic bags

This YouTube video shows you how to make these plastic flowers.

We have seen many "Keep Calm and ..." poster. Ever seen one "Now Panic and ..." before?

My department own these photos. Nine of them were selected for this art show, from the photomicrographs we exhibited in College East last year. Photomicrographs are photos taken through a microscope.
