Perhaps like many others, I had been blindly making my way around the shopping mall without exiting its enclosed cool air-conditioned environment for fear the heat outside would be unbearable!
This staged Rainforest themed garden would be worth every drop of perspiration if only we venture out of our comfortable confines. There are several exits from the lower ground floor leading to this exhiliarating 'forest' with an interesting variety of tropical greenery including palms, beautiful carps (Japanese koi), Malaysian freshwater tropical fishes,soothing flow of streams and the sound of trickling water coasting or should it be cascading down from high.
You get the feeling of being in the forest but without having to sweat it out to get there. How pampered today's lifestyle have made us feel. And if you don't get to go into the rainforest, it will come to you, courtesy of 1U Management. Best of all, you travel to the lower forest floors via escalators. tic..tic
Some photos here to tempt the uninitiated. You might want to hurry up and come by for an enjoyable walk to see what simple joys you had bypassed, followed by a relaxing cuppa at any of the adjoining eateries. Arcadia!
