Orchard Road Christmas Light Up 2017

The festive season here in Singapore has kicked off as the annual Christmas Light Up on Orchard Road was held last Saturday. The president officiated the light up ceremony, just like in previous years. The whole stretch of Orchard Road beginning from Tanglin Mall all the way down to Plaza Singapura will be covered with icy white tree shaped lights reflecting this year’s theme Endless Wonders. What is special this year is that the lights will be turned on as early as three in the afternoon, as the organizers wants shoppers and visitors to have a different experience.

Singapore Underpass Art Scene

Singapore is a fine city (pun) so says souvenir shirts being sold in all tourist shops that sell souvenir items that caters to tourists. But it is true in reality and you will hardly see nuisance graffiti on the walls  even in inner seedy alleys of older streets in Singapore. So if it happens you see murals and street art in Singapore, it must be legally done and with consent of the authorities.

Singapore River Festival 2017

Last Saturday I came to check this year Singapore River Festival lineup. The Singapore River Festival is an annual event  within and along the river. This year there were three activities being held at three quays, the LED kite flying at Clarke Quay, the movie night under the stars at Robertson Quay, and the first time Regatta Rumble at Boat Quay.

Visiting National Gallery Singapore, Part 1

Before the closing of the two iconic historical buildings, the former Supreme Court Building and City Hall, I had the opportunity to visit and explore  its interiors during its open house before it will be close and subject into major renovation to transformed the two iconic buildings into one edifice that will be named National Gallery Singapore. It was then did I focused on to the former Supreme Court building which I have chronicled on my post.

Few months ago I got the chance to visit the National Gallery Singapore. Since it was opened on November 2015 it was only recently that I got to check the gallery up close.
