Picnic and concert at the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

After church, we prepared some snacks and finger food...

Headed down to the Botanic Gdns at about 5pm to get a good parking lot, then settled ourselves at the lawn in front of the lake.

The SSO was tuning their instruments and rehearsing already.

We were supposed to meet my sis and her family at 5.30pm, but usually when I tell her a time, she is 30min to an hour late. I've waited longer than 1hr for her before too, so we just sat down and started eating first.

Kids enjoyed their food. Whenever it doesn't involve a lot of long leafy green veggies, they tend to enjoy eating it.

The concert started and most of the pieces were familiar classics. Like the New World Symphony.

A little girl seated nearby provided a lot of entertainment for us when her mom arranged her balloons like timpanis around her and she beat on them through the pieces, performing very enthusiastically to the music. Very cute.

dd enjoyed herself very much too. She was asleep for half of it, and the part she was awake, she actually cooed and gurgled with the music. I caught a bit of that in a video clip on FB.

My sis family arrived when it was the last piece, with only about 5-10min left. That was 6.50pm. My niece liked the music very much and she applauded and say "again, again" after the piece ended. My sis, not knowing it was the last piece, told her to clap louder and longer so they'll play more pieces. My niece really went ahead and clapped with all her might.

But the orchestra left the stage. She was so disappointed! It was their first time. But they'll be back for more cos she likes it so much! Next time I'll have to tell my sis a timing that's 1 hr early though! :-)
