Why is it funny, haha? The only thing I find amusing is the fact that you, a Singaporean, are so uneducated about your own history here. haha?

I was there this afternoon, such a beautiful place, very well maintained and its got to be one of the best places in singapore.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

Looking forward for the free philharmonic orchestra in Botanic Gardens every two months. I think the next one is this August.
