    National Gallery: Children’s Biennale 2017

    Kooling visited Singapore again this year and I got to meet up with her when she did! We went to the National Gallery last year, and this time we decided to go back to check out the Children’s Biennale. I also recently learnt that the National Gallery is abbreviated by some as ‘NaGa’?! I first heard it last week in fact, and thought that they were referring to local snake farm.

We parked our luggage in a train station locker and spent a day lazily exploring the less-touristy spots in Shibuya. But mostly I just took photos of Ottie goofing around. Oh hey, we took the less-traveled road out of Meiji Shrine: We liked how the construction tarp showed the original facade. That was a very nice touch. Here’s a picture that shows our luggage for the ten days that we spent in Japan – Ottie brought his backpack and duffle, while I brought my carry-on roller…
