    Concert hall is the smaller of the two and is one of the most 'glam' venue in Singapore for a classical music performance. The best thing is that there is no phone reception inside!

    Locals call this place the "Durian". However from sky, we see more curves than thorns of the popular local fruit. Aerial photo taken by Yeo Kai Wen. Source: Straits Times

    Live shows. Many of them! Quite new names but really good quality. Amazing promoters that spoil the audience and give a chance to young bands to prove themselves

    Thoroughly enjoyed the Dim Sum Dollies production of the History of Singapore. Angmo's familiarise yourself with some some Singlish and local knowledge otherwise the majority of jokes will be lost

    A nice arts center and a familiar place for meet-ups with friends for dining & a performance. I like the exhibitions & festivals as well! One horrible experience with a rude theatre usher though!

    Durian look is actually triangulated glass & sunshade system. Tradeoff betw solar shading & panoramic views. Offers shadow & texture during day; & as glowing lanterns @ night. Source: DP Architects

    Nothing much to see but we were able to capture some best shots of MBS. Remember to have a hat or cap on you. It's very hot and may have heat headaches.
