Singapore - National Museum of Singapore

Although I've been staying in Singapore for the last 3 years, I have never visited their National Museum. As usual I am impressed with it. The ambience is very modern with the touch of history. Above is the facade of the museum. It is located in front of SMU (one of the premiere schools in Singapore) You can take the purple and red MRT line in Dhoby Gaut or Bras Basah for Cirle MRT line.

The majestic ceiling of the museum

These are the moving chandelier

indoor camping anyone? :)

you can also eat inside if you go hungry.

I just really love this majestic view inside the museum

the first room that we entered was the fashion house. It has the fashion mostly by the first ladies of Singapore. Inside the room are the quotes from some prestigious people in the fashion world.

Next stop was the film house where you can see the old ways of watching a film. 3 screens are inside and I am just really thankful with the technology as watching a movie on 3 screens was quite frustrating. Every scene jumps from one screen to another.

You will also see some costumes and hair dresses in this film house.

Although I only visited 2 rooms, I am just too excited to visit again. I'd like to see what are the interesting things inside the other rooms in the museum

Singapore - Flea Market and Chili's

Although some people come to Singapore for high end shopping ( LV, Chanel, Prada, etc ) there are however flea markets such as above where you can buy very cheap used clothing. And take note they are actually branded, such as TopShop, Zara, etc but of course you just have to find a good one for you. The one visited was at Tanglin Mall in orchard, according to my friend, the flea market is open every 1st Saturday and last Saturday of the month.

And if you are hungry after the flea market shopping, indulge in the american style of food at Chilli's. Though quite expensive but I must say that the food is very good. Try their baby back ribs, it tastes really good :) yum!
