Satay by the Bay at Gardens by the Bay

My company was involved in some ‘Values-in-Action’ community work today. We brought some folks to the Gardens by the Bay. I decided to stay back after their excursion to explore the place further especially since it’s the TulipMania at the Gardens now.

After the enjoying all the beauteous blooms at the Flower Dome, I walked a little further and decided to move along the track that leads to the Satay by the Bay. The rustic Satay by the Bay, as the foodcourt is named, is noticeably less glitzy than its surroundings, with its bare floor and plants dangling from the roof.

A 10-minute walk from the two domed conservatories in the Gardens by the Bay, patrons can find eight outdoor pushcarts selling sticks of satay, with low wooden tables and stools for diners.

The food is just so-so and a touch pricey. However, my eye is on the buffet steamboat ala Marina Bay circa 1990s: it looks perfect for gatherings with friends and (lots of) food.

Being a hot day, it was still bright after my dinner. I decided to do a sketch of the place and filled it with colours after.
