Tortoise/Turtle Hunt @ Chinese Garden

On Deepavali, instead of touring the nicely decorated festive lightings at Little India at night, I decided to pay my first visit to the Chinese Garden.

It was drizzling lightly when I got there and it was pretty much what I had in my mind - the impressive pagoda, the calm lake, the pavilions, the nicely trimmed bonsai, statues of ancient heros and everything oriental.

What I did not expect to find was The Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum. For a mere $5, I entered the world of more than 200 turtles and tortoises from no less than 60 species.
