i think, having a picnic in a park while listening to singing opera is one of the best way to spend your afternoon. so we went to see the Opera in the Park at the Botanic Gardens. we were supposed to meet up with Daniel and Judy, but they couldn’t make it.
the garden was very more crowded. it’s like, 10 times more people walking around than the usual Saturday in the garden. so, judging from that, on the way to the Garden’s Symphony Stage, we stopped and had a short soap-bubble picnic and run around with aina and koda. we thought the lawn in front of Symphony Stage will be packed.
and we were right. people were scattered everywhere. kids were running around between the labyrinth of picnic blanket. there were balloons and strollers everywhere. many drinks wine, champagne or something while hanging out with friends and family.
we decided to open our picnic blanket around the outskirt of the lawn, out of consideration that there probably many people who aren’t comfortable with dogs around.
aina, at the beginning, was scared of the opera singing. she kept saying that the singer is “crying” or “screaming”. after a few explanation, she became rather fascinated and wanted to meet the “aunty who sings”… interesting.
