Some say it’s best to visit Gardens by the Bay during the day, when you can actually see everything; when your pictures come out more punchy thus less reliant on phone camera filters.
Some months ago, the office went to the GBB right after work; as the sun was about to set. Because colors or shapes are indeed less pronounced in the dark, night time lent the garden an air of mystery and maybe a little bit of magic.
Thin leaves looked like long fingers, brushing into them felt like someone playfully poking you in the dark. Veins inside fat leaves looked almost the same as those under your skin.
Rock formations or collections of dessert plants created patterns, it was like looking into a kaleidoscope without having to close an eye.
People were naughtier, like children. They might have thought the moon a pock- marked invitation to play outside with the trees.
