Chinese Garden (裕华园)

After visiting the Jurong Lake Park in the morning, I headed back home for a lunch break. Then, I continued my exploration in Chinese Garden (裕华园).

West Entrance to Chinese Garden (from Jurong Lake Park)

In the past, when I was still a child, this was a popular place during the mid-autumn festival. I vaguely remember that my family came here to admire the colourful lighted lanterns at night many years ago. It was a beautiful place (although it was very crowded too).

White Rainbow Bridge (白虹桥)

It's hard to tell from the picture that these structures along the bridge railings have dragons craved on them.
