Thought it would be good to learn some history at the museum. Many of the artefacts from Angkor are preserved here. There is a locker up front where you are required to place your handbag with the guard if it’s … Continue reading
The MONA experience was so unique that it has never left my mind. Definitely a mind altering experience at the Museum of Old and New Art that I would highly recommend if you visit Tasmania.
What we saw on the vast grounds of the museum. After walking through the museum we had lunch at the cafe and then explored the grounds outside.
I feel bad to say this, but save the 10 rinngit and forget about the museum. It’s all really too touristy and quite disappointing in terms of restoration. Just a bunch of dressed up mannequins. Pretty dismal if you ask … Continue reading
It’s still interesting when you come with someone who hasn’t been here yet. Nice to witness their reaction and the childhood memories it brings back for them. It was worth paying for the S$2 ticket again to see the upstairs … Continue reading
I have to confess I am not really a fan of Harry Potter, but my young cousins are. But if I have good company, I’m all game for a museum visit and with Marina Bay Sands now so conveniently connected … Continue reading
To be honest, we found many of the pieces here familiar and I think someone new to Asian culture would find it much more captivating. I would definitely recommend this place as a must see for tourists who have never … Continue reading
The exhibit that captivated us the most turned out to be the elephants. The elephant that sparkled.
Thanks for the link love Yesterday.sg. Glad you liked my posts on the recent National Museum visit. I must say the Arts scene in Singapore is getting quite exciting. Makes for a more balanced life here.
Skansen which is a ferry or tram ride away from the city centre, was one of my favourite places. It’s where I got to see the Nordic animals. It’s an open air museum or a sort of cultural theme park … Continue reading
For this exhibit you need to fully use your imagination in order to enjoy it. I think it would be best to watch the Titanic movie before you come here, for a better appreciation and compassion for the people on … Continue reading
Was absolutely awestruck by this painting when I saw it on the lovely Imp’s blog. The contrast of the orange blanket and the black of the angel of death was the first thing to strike me. There is a sadness … Continue reading
Dreams and Reality was an apt name for the collection. The paintings went from dreamy to bleak, with depictions of war and industrialization. The bleakness conveyed in this one, scared me quite a bit. Something about the burning and the … Continue reading
There is always so much to see even before I entered the special exhibition – Dreams and Reality. The ticket was a steal at just S$11. You can then opt for an audio guide for another S$3. I found it … Continue reading
I can look at kitchen stuff for ages. This gold pot had me transfixed. Tupperware displays. A crazy loud wall full of tupperware. I hardly see the original Tupperware brand in the stores with so many imitations around. I wonder … Continue reading
We always drive by this gorgeous red building, but I have never been inside. Been yearning to for quite some time and we finally did it. The building itself at 28 Maxwell Road is called Red Dot Traffic while the … Continue reading
One level was dedicated to ancient treasures from a shipwreck. Included were intricate gold cups from the Tang Dynasty. And did you know that Singapore was known as Temasek in the 9th Century?
When we first decided to visit the brand new Art Science Museum at Marina Bay Sands, I was expecting the experience to be good. But honestly, I never expected it to be this good. Oh you just have to see … Continue reading
Kids were fascinated by rockets back in the 50’s and 60’s. It was all about moon walking and the spaceman. Even Santa joined in. And this is what a toy store looked like in the olden days in Singapore. I … Continue reading
As we walked on, this perfume store appeared at Bussorah Street – Jamal Kazura. The store that sells perfume made without alcohol. You can make your own fragrance too. Resisted the Turkish, Mediterranean place because Nasi Padang was calling. We … Continue reading
