Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

This year, Singapore has once again surprised the world with their architecture design after the famous Marina Bay Sands. This time the great architecture is known as Gardens by the Bay. It is built on a reclaimed land with the size of 101 hectares. An international competition for the design of the master plan, held in January 2006, attracted more than 70 entries submitted by 170 firms from 24 countries. Two firms – Grant Associates and Gustafson Porter – were eventually awarded the master plan design for the Bay South and Bay East Gardens respectively.
The main highlights is still the Supertree Groove. There are a total of 18 of them around this place and 11 of them have built in with environmentally sustainable functions like photovoltaic cells to harvest solar energy. This energy will mainly to be used in generating the electricity for the night as what we are seeing right now. FYI, Supertree Groove entrance is free.
OCBC Skyway, a 128-metre long walkway that connects the two 25-metre Supertrees at the Supertree Grove, and take in a different view of the Gardens.  It is chargeable at S$5.00 per person.
A closer look on the Supertree. It is design based on Singapore's national flower which is orchid.
What you see together with the Supertree is the Cloud Forest Dome. Entrance is required which cost at S$12.00 per person.
A mysterious world veiled in mist; entirely different from the Flower Dome. A 35-metre tall mountain covered in lush vegetation shrouding the world’s tallest indoor waterfall showcases plant life from tropical highlands up to 2,000-metres above sea level. Ascend to the mountaintop in comfort by lift before descending via two walkways in the clouds for an aerial view of the canopy and mountainside below. Learn about unique biodiversity and geology of cloud forests and the environmental threats they face within the nine unique zones in this cool-moist Conservatory.
Sorry that I do not have the photo of the Flower Dome, but this is how it looks like when you are there. Step into the Flower Dome and you’ll be standing in awe of nature. Spectacular and innovative in design, it is one of the icons of Bay South Garden. The Flower Dome replicates the cool-dry climate of Mediterranean regions like South Africa, California and parts of Spain and Italy. Home to a collection of plants from deserts all over the world, it showcases the adaptations of plants to arid environments. Stop and smell the flowers in the colourful changing displays of the Flower Field, which reflects different seasons, festivals and themes. It is cost S$12.00 per person as well but if you opt to enter both conservatories, you only need to pay S$20.00 per person only. Please take note all these prices are for local residents only. For other charges please check at the end of this post. 
This is one of the most awesome scenery I had in my life with Singapore Flyer and the CBD district.
The view here will let you see how the Marina Bay Sands is look like from the back. Normally, we see it from the front. Gorgeous, is it?
Basically, you can tour around this HUGE gardens consists of South, East and Central gardens. They are free for you to enjoy. You can learn and see the plants which you usually will see in other countries but you able to see it here.
Truly amazing design which worth every single seconds to spend over here. I prefer you visit here during dawn when the sun is not that fierce enough to make you suffer while exploring this garden. It is also an excitement to witness when the Supertrees start to light up. Truly awesome view! Not something can be capture from a photo.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
