Happy Diwali, all!
Since today was a national holiday, Aina didn’t have her ballet rehearsal… which means a free time! So, we decided to go to the National Museum of Singapore. It’s been a while since we went there anyway. The weather was nice, so a lot of people were hanging out on the lawn of the museum.
And next to the museum, we found this cool thing:
I’ve always liked big outdoor pieces like this. It reminded me of the mirror sculpture we found behind Siam Square during our visit to Bangkok.
When we got into the museum, we were greeted with loads of pots and pans…
The museum was not crowded at all, so we actually got to visit all the galleries, which mostly about the history of Singapore. The culture gallery was interesting. Not only they have cool posters of past exhibitions, we got to sit on a pretend-car and watch a movie about Singapore’s history in a pretend-drive-in theatre. Cool!
Okay, that photo above was too dark… but you can kinda see the cars, no?
And after we finished with the museum, we walked to the Capitol building and had our dinner there. Aina had this huge steak, while Ari and I had this gourmet chicken rice. Very yummy!
