Christmas is coming soon….Hohoho…I always feel Christmas is the best time of the year. How about you?
If you’ve been doing good deeds, Santa Claus will give you present on Christmas eve. In returns, you shall provide milk and cookies for Santa (just in case if he is hungry and thirsty hehehehe) when he secretly visits your place.
Well, I guess this year, Santa will be very busy because other than visiting children’s houses , he is also visiting Garden by the Bay in the Christmas Wonderland event.
If you are wondering how do I know that Santa will be visiting Christmas Wonderland event? Santa told me personally because I am a good boy. Hohoho.
I will share with you a little secret that Santa shares with me…..while you are meeting with Santa, you can take a picture with him as well. Sounds, cool right?
I got an invitation with a media pass to review Christmas Wonderland at the Garden by the Bay, so I went there last Sunday to meet with Santa.
Christmas Wonderland have eight main spotlights for you to enjoy:
– Luminarie Light Sculptures
– Santa’s Workshop
– Blizzard Time presented by Haagen-Dazs

This Luminarie Light Sculptures includes a stunning 21 metre tall Spalliera inspired by the iconic towers of San Gimignano in Tuscany, Italia as well as Asia’s tallest Luminarie Christmas Tree.
2. Santa’s Workshop
Santa’s Workshop is inspired by Santa house and present factory where elves are working there to create toys, wrapping presents and fulfilling wishes on their list. You can take a picture with Santa Claus on this Santa’s Workshop.
