For this year’s Orchid Extravaganza, local filmmaker Royston Tan lent his creative touch to create an attractive floral display inspired by Peranakan culture.

2017’s display had a metallic cocoon where orchids were draped across. This year’s hanging garden feels much lighter with the open environment.
