Kooling (Beads & Blossoms) visited Singapore a couple of weeks ago, and her schedule was so packed that I was extremely lucky to have met her twice in the span of two weeks. I’ve missed that girl and her pervy humour.Â We decided to make our virgin trip to the National Gallery one drizzly afternoon. It was fun exploring facets of the building while checking out some of the exhibits along the way.
Lush interior of one of the courtrooms, which now house artworks. The staff stationed there were so enthusiastic about explaining its previous life as a court room; pretty interesting how the judge could just walk in from the doorway joiningÂ their office.
Grande tenue de la cour d’Annam (Official Dress of the Court of Annam) by Nguyen Van Nhan, watercolour on paper, bound into linen-covered album, 1902.Â Appreciated the ability to flip through the book via digital scans on the tablet next to this albumÂ – the paintings were so pretty!
