    As there are people asking me for more details, I will post the answers here for the benefit of the others who may be interested.

    The Ikebana exhibition will be opened to public on the follwoing days and times:

    06/10/04 - 7pm to 9pm
    07/10/04 - 10am to 9pm
    08/10/04 - 10am to 8pm

    Each ticket cost $8 and it is valid for one day only. The tickets can be bought at the entrance but if anybody is interested in getting the tickets now, you can get them from me. Just PM me your contacts.

    There are about 80+ numbers floral arrangment display at the exhibition, and some of them will be beautifully created by the "sofus" (teachers) from Japan. Bring your tripods and flashes together with your cameras as each floral display is a photographic chance to capture the beautiful arrangements of flowers and plants. You will have to see them to really appreciate the beauty

    In Ikebana, special consideration was given to the choice of plant, vase, placement of the branches, and the relationship of those branches with their environment and the chosen vase. Empty spaces, which form a part of the composition, were also dealt with creatively. It is this way that it differs from other known floral arrangement arts.

    Does the organzier allow the photog to use tripod to shoot since it's indoor?
