Asian Civilization Museum Visit

24 02 2009

My fren, Jo, has a goal for Yr 2009.. so she wrote this email invitation to us..

Hello all,
I’m planning a series of outings to visit different parts of Singapore in upcoming weeks. I hope these upcoming outings/ trips/ visits will help us to get to know more about Singapore, to enjoy Singapore and to explore places that we may never been before. This is my first trial, I hope to stay regular on this.

and so we are there in Asian Civilization Museum (ACM) for a visit (though not full force) on 15th Feb 2009.

On this day, we also attended the special programme held in ACM – Konnichiwa Sunday! Japanese Music, Crafts and Storytelling. Jo was very happy with the トトロ / Totoro (theme) songs played in the Special Programme – Konichiwa Sunday.. We enjoyed the plays by Ueno Koshuzan, Shakuhachi Master.

We also learnt how to play the Shakuhachi.. but I could not blow a tune.. Only Jo can!! Clever her!!

Though ACM is not purely abt Singapore (it is abt the whole Asia – culture, history, religions), we did enjoy some of the video clips and the story behind certain practices, and was amazed at some knowledge sharing. A good 2hrs ++ spent! =)

Have you visited ACM before? It is just 5mins walk from Raffles Place MRT.
