Spring in Singapore

Has anyone realised that Spring has come to Singapore? True, we may not have the lushful jacaranda blooms in Sydney, or the fluttering cherry blossoms in Tokyo, but we do have our blooms of the raintree, the golden shower trees and the flame of the forest trees.

Best enjoyed when pressed against the doors of the trains on your way to work or on your way home.

Since you are stuck in trains, pressed against bodies and doors, you should try smelling like Spring. My current favorite is Body Shop’s Cherry Blossom Range. I now smell like Sakura. 🙂

 I searched, but unfortunately it seems that tropical flowers aren’t so great for shower gels and moisturisers… Hmm, a Rafflesia* range of shower gels anyone?

*Rafflesia: The biggest flower in the world, found only in Southeast Asia. Incidentally, the smell of the flower is like rotting flesh.
