Tea with AK71: Visit a sky garden.

Saturday, October 15, 2011

In the last few years, sky gardens have become the rage or at least I think so. Many condominiums also have sky gardens these days and they are apparently good selling points.

The very enterprising Marina Bay Sands even charge a fee to enter their sky garden (aka SkyPark) which is probably the tallest one in Singapore at 200m above ground. Personally, I wouldn't bother paying $20 just to gain entrance.

If we want to experience a sky garden, try the one at the National Library in Bugis. I was there recently and I really like it. No entrance fee too.

I like this. Creepers growing up some pillars which reminds me of a jungle.

Pandan! This spot smells really nice and will probably stay roach free!

If you like nature but are asthmatic like me, you will like this place.

I used to have a pot of Aloe Vera at home, if you remember. ;)

Open seven days a week, this is one sky garden all of us can enjoy for free.
A view of the Hotel Inter-Continental and Illuma Shopping Mall from the garden.
Go visit and see for yourself. Have a good weekend. :)
P.S. All photos taken with my trusty Samsung mobile phone, which, by the way, is also free, or have I said this before? ;)

Hi Anonymous,

I think there could be a day when someone I know might be staying there and I might also be invited to visit. Till then, I really am not bothered at all. ;)

I visited the national library for the first time last CNY. OK, call me "sua ku"!

I am more a Queenstown library guy, so imagine my surprise and wonderment when I explored the upper floors at the National library. So big and spacious!

I felt like I was in a university's library or something. I was a bit hesitant and asked whether I can enter. Ha ha! Silly me!

Found some interesting sections and old books and magazines. Now I know where to go if I need to do some research ;)

I had not visited a public library in years! This visit was a "by the way" kind of thing. I was there with my family to watch Hossan Leong actually. So, discovering this sky garden was a bonus. :)
