you read it correctly. No,it's not the place for fossilized plants
instead you can see them fresh and blooming.am i referring to the
Botanic Garden ? Actually yes, the photos were from the Botanic Garden,
but i prefer to call it the
Below is the excerpt of the coining of the term:
Aoi: Eyas, let's go to the Botanicals and have some photo session
XVeggie (still dizzy from work): Botanicals? What are the things we can see there?
Aoi: (blink* blink) Uhmm...dinosaurs?
XVeggie: like a museum?
Aoi: (evil straight face) uhmm yeah.
next day i ended up going alone to the Botanical garden, naturally
getting lost first. (lousy sense of direction) The ground is
quite huge, that it even has to be divided into three sections
showcasing a variety of horticultural species. Though, inside the
garden can be quite humid, there are lots of shelters and benches to
rest and well, just to enjoy the scenery. If the variety of plants and flowers is not enough to tickle the inner botanist inside everyone, then the special section for Orchids might do the trick.
It’s a pleasant surprise to see people from different walks of life, come to this botanical garden, from a person who just wants to jog , to a gigantic-camera wielding tourist, to students browsing on their notes and yes, thanks to the lovely café inside, business meetings are held and even sometimes wedding proposal.
While some people busy walking their dogs, I was busy walking… uhmmm..my camera. My timing was bit off, (well, I got lost) it was already noon and the temp was escalating. The heat was enough to make me focus more on my sweating than correcting the focus of camera lens. I have 3 fave shots from this trip: the shot of my trainers, a pic of the lotus flower (which I also submitted for the Yahoo Time capsule project) and the bullfrog statue that can pass off as my boyfriend.
