SG BOUND

On this very first legit trip in 2016, I went to Singapore with at first, an intention to survey apartments. But lesbe honest, this is all just a shade to cover my needs to travel. While I usually went to a "no chill" shopping-spree every time I visit Singapore, I decided to do things a lot differently this time. 

By "museum-hopping" that is, if that's even a word. And on just a short time of 3 days, I am proud to say we managed to visit 2 art museum, 1 sea aquarium, and 1 park. Not too shabby, huh? And I found myself wondering like "damn it, why did we never thought of visiting art museum whenever we travel to?" So yeah, visiting lots of artsy place/ art gallery/ museum while travelling is definitely on my bucket list now. 

Now let's start with ARTS&SCIENCE museum which is located at Marina Bay Sands. This one is pretty new and very very tech-savy. Prepare to be amazed with the lighting projectors, interactive gallery (thus, perfect if you bring children), and so on. My favourite is of course the Future World: Space exhibition (first two photos). To sum up in one word: dreamy. Saying I never want to leave this place is an understatement.

Next, is S.E.A Aquarium located in Sentosa World. And what blew my mind is definitely the thread-like jellyfish. Or to describe in a very slang-ish word "it was liiiiiiiiit man". Literally had a fangirling moment by myself the moment I saw it. So if you love fishy and trippy stuff, a must visit.





Last but not least, my most favourite, Singapore Art Museum or SAM. This is actually a very impromptu visit, as we need to catch out flight in less than 3 hrs, super worth it tho. So many inspiring things in here and it made me think the true power of an art installation. Take a look at this above installation "Bloodline of Peace" created by Suzann Victor. The breathtaking fact is if you look closely, you can see each of these lenses have blood on it, created with more than 32,000 blood samples. The story behind this is to reflect commitment and sacrifice must be done in order to have peace. *goose bumps* 

I must say, I absolutely love the first moment of entering an art installation or museum. You didn't know what to expect and suddenly you're feeling all this new feelings. If that even makes sense ;)





Love,


M.x

  28. Hi M, loved this post. The pictures you took are absolutely amazing!!!

    Have you written anything about photography/taking pictures?

    I would love for you to check out my blog, It is very different to yours but I am a BMX Racer from Australia and I am saving money to follow my dreams of BMX racing and get to all the events in the BMX National Series. I hate to ask but it would help me out so so much if you could take the time to have a read or just click on an ad.

    Thanks so much, amazing post as always xx
