  • We got wonderful experience. Huge museum of Singapore historical collections, as you expected from a museum. Clean, nicely decorated and beautiful building too. Good for those who love and curious about history; especially Singapore national history. Good for all kind of visitors, with family, couple, friends or alone. But you might expect walking a bit because of the vast building.
  • Is very important to understand hardship . During those days , our ancestors have to go through wars and riots , to get something for the family. Do you think is easy ? Was their life very smooth and peaceful ? They fight and kill , just to get the essential things such as food , money and house for the family. Even though, we no longer living in those chaos times . It can happen again , if we take things for granted. Our ancestors lay down their life for us . Blood , sweat and tears. After their efforts , we can enjoy and feel comfortable at home. Be thankful , for our grandparents, parents and to those work very hard. We respect and trust our current ministers and governments . Are we satisfied? Important , we don't take things for granted and be grateful for the little things . Don't be too greedy and arrogance. Enjoy and appreciate, what we have . Is better than we have nothing. Stay humble and kind. But with limitations.
