I've always thought why female species loves flowers, is it because they have something in common when it comes to their reproductive organs, it's often associated with that. I could hardly breath from laughing so hard when I remembered a friend of mine talked about that. 

I admired every detailed of the place especially when I heard a splashing sound. A Waterfall located within the Ginger Gardens behold my eyes. A little adventure awaits, you can go under the waterfall and feel the water, you can go through a small pathway they made.  An Orchid designed Waterfall, a beautiful spot that reminds me of a rain forest I've seen on TV. The orchids were arrange that it  made the view like a typical waterfall. The place captivates me with the beauty of each Orchids.The National Orchid Garden, opened on 20 October 1995 by Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew, is located on the highest hill in the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Three hectares of carefully landscaped slopes provide a setting for over 1,000 species and 2,000 hybrids, with about 600 species and hybrids on display.

Inside the Cool House you will experience being in a tropical rain forest. The cool air brings you to another world, something different from what we see everyday. I saw a dad trying to explain to his son maybe about the species they see around, a priceless moment to bond with your child.

As we passed by we noticed this squirrel, we just stood there watching the animal makes it way from one branch to another.
