This was the day when the haze was so bad that the PSI reached 400 and Marina Bay Sands and Bay East completely disappeared from our view hours later.

Everywhere was depressingly quiet and the gardens was like a ghost town shrouded in a fog, albeit one with a burnt smell in the air.

However, I did find some brief joy in a flowering Bougainvillea at the Secret Life of Trees at the World of Plants and the flowering orange Zephyranthes at the Chinese Garden courtyard of the Heritage Gardens.
