Thanks for sharing the Singapore Orchid Show link, I was only able to find the Singapore Garden Festival information but was not able to find the actual show link, thank you! I added this show to our Orchid Shows Calendar. Will you be attending the show and can you provide photos?
Thanks for the information...
Sincerely,

Hello, Philip.

Thanks for your comment.

I shall definitely be attending (I'm involved in organising the educational activities and miniature orchid display). I'll also be taking photos and posting them either on this blog or at www.dendrobium.org.

Regards,

Chong-Yee

Thanks for the information about the festival. The only festival I have been to is the New York orchid show which is a really great show. If the Singapore orchid show is as good as the New York show I will definitely think about attending.
