Anyway, Singapore was as wonderful and dull as it ever was. I marveled at the lack of horns being honked..cars stopping when you cross the street..streets! Ah, I'm in a bad way about Sri Lanka right now so I'm not being fair.
|Our room was ..um..very efficient!|
|Our first meal!|
The day M went to hang with his friend, I went to the museums. I was curious about the Red Dot Design Museum. I gather it's a design award and the museum houses the winners. It was interesting, if a little sparse. Of course, having taken the museum studies course I look at exhibits a bit differently Kinda fun to think how I would of staged it.
|No mistaking the Red Dot Design Museum!|
My favorite exhibit was the Tupperware exhibit (no, this has nothing to do with my "Clic Clak" obsession). I thought it was delightfully presented. Looking through various design books from around the world was fun.
|That's a lot of "burping"going on!|
|Ipoh Hor Fun!|
|The various Kopitiam (coffeshop) cups.|
|Chinese pjs and Cheongsam, one sexy, one not so...|
|Some western dresses & in the back you can see a paper "soup can" dress.|
|A nice way to create drama in a hall.|
Like I said, we zoomed around on the MRT and while I was going way underground at Dhoby Ghat I looked up and saw this! It must be kind of freaky to be the guy cleaning the pond and looking down 'cuz it was kind of freaky looking up!
M and I also enjoyed some of the inhouse entertainment our hotel had to offer. I enjoyed a documentary called "Menstruation Man". It's not all what you might think and the guy who is the subject is an amazing man helping the poor women of India. They don't have access to affordable pads nor in some cases do they even know they exist. The women are shy and don't hang their laundered rags (!) in the sun to dry so they re-use unsanitary cloths. This, as you can imagine, can have a devastating effect on their personal health and can even affect their unborn children. Suffering great derision and through trial and error, he has developed a process and a machine so that impoverished women can manufacture their own pads. They are improving their health and creating employment for those who otherwise might remain in misery. It is very inspiring!
Not so erudite was the Tamil movie we enjoyed. The gods were playing with the lives of 4 men and giving them all sorts of tests in order that they maybe returned to their normal lives. It was a hoot! Especially the fact that the gods watched everything on an IMac!
Finally even though this isn't a food blog I had to show you the amazing tofu fah disappearing act!

|Now you don't!|
