Perspective

Green! Isn't it just a beautiful colour?

It's definitely my favourite and the reason why is probably due to the complete immersion of greenery Singapore has to offer. The rich chlorophyll is almost always all around you. To me it's a breath of fresh air. Most of the time we see these beautiful tress from ground level.

Today Floor and I are going to take you on adventure that's above the norm!

On Saturday we decided to take a walk that began at the Alexandra Garden Trail.

We walked up to the incredibly long canopy walk bridge to start our journey.

The views from these long stern bridges give you the unique chance to walk amongst the top half of the trees making you feel as you are almost one with the trees!

Through the green we waved goodbye to The Interlace and continued on walking.

We stopped to check out all about the diversity of bird wild life in the area.

We then immersed ourselves in the bamboo haven section, which made me feel as if I was briefly wondering off to Japan.

As we walked forward we read about the singing birds in the next part of the walk.

Trying to soak as much rainforest music I couldn't stop thinking how beautiful the greenery looked.

At one point we found these space ship lookalike shelter pods that are for anyone that would like to take a little break from the walk or incase a dry spot is needed from the coming rain.

Sadly we didn't get to encounter any monkeys on the way but incase you do, here are a few tips!

And we finally made it!

Henderson Waves is a beautiful long wooden bridge that is 300 meters long and is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore.

The view of the centre of Singapore above 70 meters high.

On the other side of the bridge you get to see a lush green view towards Keppel Area.

L1070859

The beautiful view you get is quite something else from what you see on the streets. The rich amounts of greenery from above makes it seem like the trees are miniature.

These cheeky little markings are placed along the bridge.

Here's a little background for you on this beautiful bridge:

The name Henderson Waves was given because of the way the unique wave-form the bridge has that is made up of seven curved steel "ribs" that alternately rise over and under of the bridge.

L1070864

These "ribs" are then used as shelters with seats within where Floor and I took a little breather from.

L1070870

Having had a great and much needed one on one time with Floor decided to stay there until the clouds passed over.

A main theme that that stuck out to me from this walk was the importance of perspective. Be it physically and getting the chance to change the way I usually see greenery to applying the belief of always trying to see things with a bit of a different perspective. Not only do I think it's healthy but it keeps things fresh. You never know what you might discover!

What do you think?
