It is time to celebrate…five

botanic gardens
Grand finale of the celebration is to have a dinner with the family at 1 of the restaurants that I had wanted to try their degustation menu for a long time and I don’t have any reasons to visit it till that day. The sun was setting and you can see a lot of families sitting around basking in the evening sun enjoying the weekend idle away.

au jardin exterior
The colonial building sitting near the entrance to Botanical Gardens is where Au Jardin is. The exterior was kept minimal and you’re greeted with red roses and white orchids.

au jardin
Table settings were of green and white with the same red roses. I love the side balcony where we were sitting, very private and you can look out to the greenery surrounding you. The chandelier hanging in the middle was my favorite centre piece in the balcony area. The soft yellow light against the golden setting sun with the candles in the center of every table gave a feeling of class mixed with some romance.
