Recently, we've been reading our new book 📕 穿越传统戏曲世界 Exploring the World of Opera!
Last weekend, to delve a little deeper,
we had a field trip
to check out a beautiful Chinese opera mural
painted by @yipyewchong,
an extremely talented local artist!
A scene that was common in the past,
and a popular form of entertainment,
but not seen anymore in our streets.
There are so many details to pore over.
So massive, yet intricate.
Still, but full of movement and life.
A snapshot of history and our #intangibleculturalheritage
to enjoy in the present,
and reminisce in the future.
📍 5 Temple Street, Singapore 058556
5 minute walk from Chinatown MRT
Thanks Jermaine @tiffany_basket for
