Feeling guilty about the bag of Doritos I wolfed down by myself last night, I decided to do something extra special for my day’s morning jog. With the Circle Line recently opening its new stations, I thought it would be great to pay a visit at the once-almost-unreachable Singapore Botanic Gardens.
The MRT station was right next to the northwestern gate of the Botanic Gardens, near the trellis walks. After finding the Visitor Centre to stuff my bag in a locker, I set off in a jog. You could easily lose track of time as you go down the winding paths of the gardens. Many times on the way back I got sidetracked to one garden after another.
Even if you’re not into botany at all, you could still find the quirky sculptures that dotted the place amusing, or chill out at one of the serene benches by the lake.
The garden’s a great spot for picnics, frisbee matches and dog-spotting (there were so many, it was almost too much cuteness to handle in the morning!).
