A tour to Swan Lake
What are they staring at? Is it something interesting or something so eyes catching to them?
Yes! The swan lake. You are looking at the lake as old as the Gardens. It was built in 1866, since than the charming beautiful memories start. There is an island in the lake planted with Nibung palms, these has to be the most remarkable and timeless iconic in Singapore Botanic Gardens.
The Banyan tree is old enough to be our great grand father, and also wise enough to play the old garden song.
Though feeding is not allowed, as long as fishes and the feeder is happy, like-wise the cameraman.
This wooden swan sculpture has been there for many decades but surprisingly; they just couldn’t get out of this place!
There are 2 white mute swans from Amsterdam, always there be an ambassador, gliding like a sub-marine, shinning like a chandelier.
Feed me! Feed me! How could you bear not to feed me?
I’m so lovely and charming bright!

No wonder the swans look so familiar, they are from Netherlands, I swear that the ones at Keukenhof are the distant relatives of these in Singapore.

They could be cousin or niece? 🙂
