This beautiful chapel was part of a convent school in the middle of the city, Chij Victoria. The school moved out in 1983, I’m guessing because the buildings were no longer suitable for educational needs. Since then, the complex was rebranded Chijmes and is now home to a variety of restaurants, pubs and a wedding venue.

There are beautiful flowers all along the fence, but regretfully these are plastic. Its the first time I’ve ever encountered such a large plastic display outdoors.

A Christmas Wonderland is a seasonal offering at Gardens by the Bay, now in it’s third year. In it’s own words, it is “Singapore’s biggest yuletide fair, created to enthral visitors with a combination of magnificent sculptures of light and charming festive markets alongside carnival games.”
