Being a "Little Nonya" fan, Yyn was tempted to go in though we were late for the photo exhibit. We did make a quick tour in there and had a look at how a traditional Peranakan wedding was carried out through the displays of wedding gifts, traditional wedding garments, tea ceremony etc etc.
"Si Dian Jing" for the bride..
The front of a typical rich Peranakan home from the olden days.
Some of the other photos I took at the Museum (other than the actual photo exhibits).
Interior of the Museum
The 3 LCD panels are moving-still shots - meant as publicity for Voom Portraits
One of my fav shot of the day!
Another of my fav!

If this exhibition piece was to make it to Project Runway, i think it would be the episode where designers have to design Couture wear for ladies to go to war in. Hehe...
Frankly, at 1st glance, I almost thought it was just another army-wear. But when I looked at the detailing, it's actually incorporating some really feminine style into Army prints- corset-cut, scrunged-up 3 quads, 5" heels... But definitely not for the military...
I love Vespas!!! If I could drive a Vintage 20 yr old VW Beetle, I would!!! But in Singapore it just doesn't make sense. Same reason why it doesn't make sense to buy a fast speed convertible only to ride it at 60km/hr on normal roads, breathe in the fumes during rush hour in the CBD and pay double the road tax for a vehicle that seats half the no. of passengers.
That's just my POV (Point Of View) anyways... :P
