Sentosa Flowers 2011 (Loads of photos!)
Every year without fail since 2005 (I think), there will be a huge flower show happening in Sentosa Island during the Chinese New Year period. It's the perfect chance to catch different types of flowers all in one place, take great pictures together with the flowers and get squashed together like sardines thanks to the enormous amount of people flocking there. And as promised, I will blog about the event today!
At first I did not know much about the event, much less want to go there but a friend of mine who is a photo enthusiast and a girl (explains why she likes flowers) managed to pull 3 of us there for a one day outing. I must say that despite the number of people there, which makes walking difficult, we still had a great time. And thanks to EusoffWorks' awesome 50D and a lens that I forgot the name, we managed to snap great pictures too! Pictures, do the talking please.

|Okay, maybe not so pretty anymore|
|Yeah, you better work alright! Or no lunch for all of you!|
|Okay I'm sorry I asked all of you to work, there's no need to do the "Talk to my hand" pose|
|How about eating eggs for lunch? No?|
|Or rabbit meat? Since it's bunny new year? I heard rabbit meat is nice.|
|How could you all eat Japanese buffet without me :(|
|Holding on to the flower pot for dear life. Perhaps not a good idea to take a picture|

Hope you enjoyed the photos! To see all the photos that we've taken, it's on Facebook here.
FYI, the Sentosa Flowers event will be happening all the way til February 13th near Imbiah lookout. I'm sure by the time Chinese New Year ends, there will be less people there as compared to when we went. There were a lot of photos that we did not manage to take due to the extremely long queue (yes you need to queue to take photos), like the two Valentine hearts shaped by roses, but perhaps I'll be going there again if I have the chance. It's an event you cannot miss!
