Asian Civilisation Museum Singapore- Kangxi Emperor Exhibition

Went to ACM last weekend for this special exhibition.

The Kangxi Emperor is considered one of the most successful emperor in the China history.

The whole place is full of Kangxi's posters..

Entrance costs S$8 per person, if you have American Express card, entrance would be one for one! S$8 is very well spent indeed for a lazy afternoon. If you are interested in China history, this is an exhibition that you can't missed~!

Did you know that Dragon is made up of bodyparts of these animals?

Before stepping into the Kangxi Gallery..

No photos are allowed in the Kangxi Gallery...but...for the benefits of my friends reading this blog, I secretly took some photos! ENJOY!

Some tools Kangxi used for astrological purposes. He was very interested in Western cultures.Kangxi was also the first Chinese Emperor to have played a western instrument, the piano. Surprised?

I would recommend everyone to pay ACM a visit and catch this special exhibition before it ends. Do check out timing of their free guided tours before going. We missed that. Who knows I might go again?

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our lives, and I am fairly confident when I say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes cheaper, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about every once in a while.
