Exploring Singapore: National Gallery Singapore

Hello and I hope everything is going well! Can you believe it’s December already?! 2017 has been quite a whirlwind for me, but it’s also been a pretty amazing year!

I just came back from a short trip back to my favourite city Hong Kong (some updates here on my Instagram, while I slowly play catch up here on this blog), where I had an absolutely fantastic time! It was so packed full of activities, and I wouldn’t have it any other way, because nothing could be more Hong Kong.

For now, it’s back to life in Singapore, and for this post, I wanted to share Singapore’s newest museum, which is such a grand and beautiful space, it’s worth visiting just for the building itself haha! Joking aside, it’s actually an art museum specialising in Southeast Asian art (more art related posts from NGS on my sister’s blog here) and housed in two historic buildings featuring British colonial architecture with a mix of newly designed and built architecture.

Before it was opened as a museum in late 2015, these buildings were the former Supreme Court Building and City Hall, housing courtrooms and governmental offices. I’m glad that now I get a chance to wander around the space, and thanks to my sister, I’ve already been there many times!
