Have you made plans for the night when the moon will shine at it’s brightest? Many years ago, we used to take a night walk around Chinese Garden. Year after year, the event seem to be dwindled down to a very quiet affair with not much happenings. Well, we just got the details for Mid Autumn flora celebration at Gardens by the Bay. This year’s Mid Autumn Festival also coincides with Shirley’s mum’s actual birth date so we will be having our 3-Gen family bonding there. Have we mentioned that admission for Senior Citizens into both cooled conservatories is FREE until 31st Dec ’15? Accompanying care givers also get half price off ticket prices. Double YAY!!
Mid-Autumn festivities are going to be in full swing at Gardens by the Bay come 25th Sep, Friday. That is just a few days away! Don’t tell your boss we SAys!, but 24th Sep is a Public Holiday and if you take a day of annual leave on 25th, you will have a super long weekend to thoroughly celebrate Mid Autumn Festival with your family and friends! ❤
