Look! It’s more of what I did in Singapore. Day two featured the Botanic Gardens and a visit to Singapore Art Museum which I didn’t know was hosting work from the Singapore Biennale 2016 (which I didn’t even know was happening—good timing, hey?).
So, first the Botanic Gardens…
From there it was back to the city, and after conferring with my Spoon friend I decided I wanted to see some contemporary art, so on to the Singapore Art Museum housed in the former St. Joseph’s Institution, an old catholic school for boys.

I had a lot of people mention how good the food is when I said I was heading to Singapore, and I’m pretty particular about what I eat so this night really proved it to be true. I mean, they probably weren’t talking about the Indian food, but man, the mushroom curry I ate was next level. So good. Little India was pretty amazing as well.
And here’s a picture of one of the Singaporean kopitiam or coffee shops that are all over the city.
Okay, bye. (More coming soon).
