To continue where I’ve left off in this series of my Singapore trip, I’ve visited the infamous Singapore Art Museum. It showcases a wide array of contemporary and abstract definitions of art that you would not really expect to find in a modern and fast paced city. Though if you’re expecting a huge structure, like the typical museum, expect to be disappointed. It’s situated at a modest looking building with white walls. But then, in each floor and in every room, you can definitely let your imagination run wild. For an affordable entrance fee, they also have student discounts and they credit student IDs from other countries, you can enter the minds of these artists and see for yourself how they see art.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a UFO? No, they’re the famous man-made trees of the beautiful city of Singapore.
Last month, I had the privilege of visiting this bustling metropolis and it didn’t disappoint. Armed with my camera and my trusty umbrella, I toured around the city with my family. I was in awe, and still am, of how artistic and creative it is. From the wall arts to the colorful houses, down to the Marina Bay Sands and the Gardens by the Bay, it is an artist’s (and architect’s) dream. One can never get enough of it. I sure don’t mind going back there.
Aside from its’ uniqueness, Singapore is a very safe place. You feel secured as you walk down the streets, even at night. Also, everyone speaks English, if not the basics of it. Not only that, the city is very clean. My brother said that he wouldn’t mind licking the roads with how clean it looks, but I still wouldn’t suggest doing that. This is due to the fact that they impose very strict rules with heavy consequences if you break them. It really lives up to its’ name as being a ‘Fine’ city.
