35) Where is your Bandstand?

Posted on Updated on

This is the only bandstand in my memory since childhood.  For some, when you ask the question around, the answer might not be great difference.  Yes, we are back to Singapore Botanic Gardens again. 

With fair skin and elegant appearance, this octagonal classic beauty was refaced in 1930.  It was erected in the 1860s as a focus point of Botanic Gardens.  For sure, that was our grandparents or even our great grandparents’ time.  But it has retired from its military band performance.  So, let’s listen to the musical flow in the charming winds and cicadas’ call.

And so, where is your Bandstand?  Mine is in this lovely garden.  Anywhere, in any of its piece of greenery!
