Look who is in town?
It's Miffy, the cute little rabbit who hails all the way from The Netherlands. And she is visiting Singapore for a very special reason.
Remember TULIPMANIA at Gardens by the Bay last year? Of all the flower displays at the Flower Dome thus far, Tulipmaina has got to be my fave.
So imagine my utter joy when I found out that it will be making a return on 14 April! And to further up the ante, Miffy has been specially flown in by KLM and will be joining in the fun as well! Something I know that will delight Ale to no end.
Inspired by Madurodam, a miniature park and tourist attraction in the Netherlands, the centrepiece will depict Dutch canal scenes, houses and windmills set amidst spectacular blooms of tulips and hyacinths. The star of the display will be the 50,000 tulips bulbs of assorted varieties flown in from the Netherlands, in a myriad of colours including red, yellow, orange, purple and white.
For the kids (and those young-at-heart), they can snap a photo together with Miffy at Gardens By The Bay’s Flower Dome on the following dates:
- 20 April 2014 (Sunday) - Easter Egg Hunt event
- 26 April 2014 (Saturday) - Orange Day Celebrations (a national holiday in The Netherlands)
There are also lots of other Tulipmania-related activities scheduled so do stay tuned for more updates!
