Singapore’s award-winning filmmaker Royston Tan lends his creative touch to Orchid Extravaganza with a floral tribute to the multicultural heritage of Singapore. Set amidst a vivid backdrop of Peranakan shophouses, this year’s orchid display exudes a unique local flavour that celebrates Singapore’s melting pot of cultures. More than 14,000 orchids of over 120 varieties will be featured in a profusion of colours inspired by the vibrant hues of local delights and quintessential items, while clouds of overhanging orchids conjure up images of the smells and smoke that waft through the kitchen. Let the nostalgia and colour of the shophouses take you back in time to remind you of the Peranakan houses at Joo Chiat and Emerald Hill. Stroll under clouds of overhanging orchids that are inspired by the smells and smoke that waft through the kitchen in local filmmaker Royston Tan’s film, Bunga Sayang (Flower of Love). Admire the orchids that adorn the façade of the shophouses, and the award-winning ones on display from 21 to 29 Jul from the Singapore Orchid Growers’ Association (SOGA) Orchid Show 2018. Check out the beaded slippers, kebaya and framed embroidered designs on display. Make sure to feast your eyes with the beautiful orchids that deck the scene. The orchids display will continue to Wednesday, 22 August 2018 from 9.00 am to 9.00 pm daily at the Flower Dome. Credit: Gardens By the Bay.
