2 may 2011 – the thought of visiting a museum may bore some (or most?) people. but not me. i enjoy discovering the history of a place, though at the end of the day, i may not necessarily remember the facts i learnt *sheepish*
view of the national museum of singapore from across the street.
the construction of the dome of this building is said to have driven a chinese contractor to madness.
interesting spiral staircase within the building.
there was an exhibition of the history of black dresses going on when I was there. the dress with a guitar at the rear is designed by Karl Lagerfeld in 1983.
bottles of carbonated drinks of old
herbs & spices
put your nose near the funnel-shaped metal piece, pull the ring, and you will get a whiff of the corresponding herbs/spices.
containers for takeaways. a far cry from our styrofoam packs now.
john little’s of old
e-guide round the museum
blast from the past
set aside one whole day for a detailed visit with a relaxing break at their in-house cafe.
