We eventually ended up at the Singapore Art Museum and I was surprised to find the place still buzzing with activity at 6pm. As it turned out, there was an exciting range of programmes planned for that evening because of the Night Festival.
I knew about the Art Garden for a while but we didn't manage to check it out. With our good luck, Chip and I got to do it that evening and it was free admission for all till 2am!
Above: Learn about plant life-cycle through Floribots, an award-winning work featuring over 100 giant robot flowers that 'grow' before your very eyes from a bud until they 'bloom' pink and yellow.

He was not fond of this space made of beautiful illustrations and mixed media creations. But he did take many photos of me here and this one in particular turned out the best.
He loved this place and spent a good 20 min chasing the daisies.
Finally, his favourite place of all - Walter's Garden. I waited an hour and 15 min for him here.
He was very imaginative and creative in this space. One moment, he was collecting a single shade cushion and piling them up to look like rocks, then pretending to be a bulldozer shifting rocks around.
The next moment, he was up and running, separating the rocks into two piles and telling everyone that there was an earthquake and the ground was splitting apart.
Now and again, he would hop around like a bunny and calling out to Walter, pretending that Walter (the white bunny) was hiding.
Then he invited another boy to work with him to gather the remaining cushions to create mountains and a special place for the bunny to stay in.
I love the way he imagined the different scenes with what he saw in that space.
At one point, he gathered ALL the kids to work with him! Haha!
I just spent the whole time standing outside the room, grinning from ear to ear, and snapping photos.
By the time we left S.A.M, it was 8.20pm and it was so evident that he had an incredible time!
It is always so wonderful to be able to do simple things like this little trip out, and I enjoy our time together as much as he did.
