The main feature during my visit was the BEAUTY IN ASIA exhibit which discusses the concept of beauty in this part of the world.
There's a small space here devoted to Singapore history as a fishing village. There are dioramas, too, which depict scenes of the old days when the river shaped the city into what it is now.
At every corner, there's a screen which feature a virtual guide. You can touch the screen and the image comes alive. Featured guides are from all nationalities that compose today's Singapore society.
This is where you can lounge for a bit and listen to music made from the instruments featured above.
And finally, to the special exhibition. Sorry if there are few photos from here. Most of it cannot be photographed. A few pieces of indigenous fabrics and clothing from the North represented the Philippines. Sadly, there was no mention of our extensive gold collections, pottery, and even tattoo traditions.
Lotus shoes. My first time to actually see samples of the shoes that made many Chinese women's feet disfigured all their lives. So amazing yet so sad. The concepts of beauty can sometimes be severe, many suffer from it.
The museum's shop. The Philippines is represented by fabrics from the Goulborn \ Silk Cocoon company which uses indigineous fiber into their articles of clothing.
The Q Bar besides ACM.
The Victoria Theatre. All of these buildings are just around the area of the ACM.
A statue of Sir Stamford Raffles, founder of modern Singapore, on Boat Quay. Thanks for the warm welcome, ACM! What a tour, eh? It's almost like I brought you in with me. Donations are welcome to offset the SGD 8 entrance fee, ha ha ha! Kidding.
