I snuck off for an hour before dinner on Saturday to give my new toy a spin. I took a brisk walk and made my way to the section of the railroad tracks near Rifle Range Road. A small lesson was learnt for the day: flip-flops don’t do well on track gravel. 🙂

A legacy of our colonial heritage, the railroad tracks have always been a familiar sight for me growing up. Both my primary school and junior college (before it moved) were located just beside the tracks along Holland Road.

An early appointment in the City Hall area brought me there last Saturday morning. I didn’t finish until past noon and went hunting for a simple lunch after that. I found a coffeeshop along Waterloo Street, a stone’s throw away from the Art Museum. After a satisfying lunch of chicken rice, I found to my delight that entrance to the museum was free for the day. It was not a bad thing that photography was not permitted in the galleries (it is allowed in the museum’s public areas); focusing on the art pieces is easier when you’re not peering at them through the viewfinder. 🙂 I spent a satisfying 2 hours going through the museum’s galleries.

Went photowalking with a friend at Chinatown on the weekend. We ran into some rather unpleasant business which I will not go into detail here but we managed to get a good morning’s walk out of it anway.

Chinatown has alot to offer for photography enthusiasts and we saw many fellow camera-totting photographers on the streets. I didn’t cover as much ground as I hoped but that just means I will have more to shoot the next time I visit Chinatown. 🙂

I was in the Chinatown area for dim sum and strolled over to the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) Singapore City Gallery at my sister’s suggestion. I was surprised at how much fun the gallery turned out to be. The gallery featured a number of fascinating miniature cityscape models. Time flew by as we busied ourselves identifying the Lilliputian-sized landmarks.

I have always loved craft and I tip my hat to the amazing people who must have spent countless hours building the detailed scaled-down models. I had a great time at the gallery and recommend everyone to pop by at least once to check it out. Admission is free to the gallery at the URA Centre (45 Maxwell Road) and it is opened from 9am to 5pm, Mondays to Saturdays.
