Chinese Garden

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAChinese Garden is a beautiful garden located in the western part of Singapore. It’s quite close to where we live, only two stops by MRT, and is right in front of Chinese Garden MRT station. I have written a post about The Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum, which is located inside Chinese Garden, but I haven’t written anything about the garden itself. So, here it is… My post about Chinese Garden. The pictures that are featured here were taken at different dates from 2013-2014.

Bristol: Temple Gardens and Castle Park

Monday, 8 September.

Melbourne Museum, Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens


Melbourne Museum was a big hit with the kids. As I mentioned in a previous post, we went to the museum twice, and on both occasions stayed there from around 11 in the morning until the museum was about to close at 5 in the afternoon.

The museum has several main parts. On the ground level, there are Science and Life, Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Children’s Gallery. There is also an IMAX theatre, but we didn’t go there. On the upper level, there are Mind and Body Gallery and Melbourne Gallery. There are Evolution Gallery, Forest Gallery and Te Pasifika Gallery that occupy both ground and upper levels of the museum. Temporary exhibitions are usually held on the lower ground.
