Second visit by CIB Awards judges

on

Thursday morning. There were quite a number of neighbours (15?) hanging around the community garden even though it was already past 9am!

We were excitedly waiting for our VIP guests – judging panel from Community-in-Bloom Awards.

Some neighbours arrived early, as early as 1hr before! :) We chatted, made new friends, and shared knowledge on the plants in the garden.

We also had kueh and tea ready to welcome our guests. Both were made using ingredients from our garden ;)

I thought it was amazing that we could gather so many neighbours to come together in a short time, given that we were alerted to the visit only on Monday evening.

Such a sweet & happy feeling as we walked home after the visit. I was with neighbours from the same street – but even though we were neighbours for 10 odd years; for some, it was really an occasion for “hello, my name is…” and making of new friends. :)
