I am happy to receive some traditional Malay Kueh-kueh and Muslims foods during Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Below a photo of the Kueh-kueh. After one month of Ramadan that was devoted to worship, charitable deed and acts of compassion by Muslims, all are welcome to take part in the celebrations in Singapore. Glittering street lights-up and traditional decorations, wide variety of traditional foods and many things like textiles and handicrafts can be seen at Geylang Serai, Kampong Glam and even at my neighborhood shopping areas and bazaars.

Singapore is a small country. More than 5 million people living in Singapore. The majority are Chinees, with Malays and Indians forming significant minorities. Singapore has four languages: English, Chinese, Malay, and Tamil. You can see different kinds of arts practiced in Singapore. Singapore government has been promoting Singapore as a centre for arts and culture and Singapore has constructed Espllanade – Theatres on the bay for the performing arts and developed the Singapore Art Musuem for the visual arts. The Singapore Art Museum advocates and presents contemporary art practices of Singapore and the Southeast Asian region. Many art societies and organizations promote arts in Singapore too. Art soceity like Singapore art Society, Modern Art Society, Singapore Watercolour Society and Chinese paintings and calligraphic related art societies in Singapore. There are many art exhibitions in Singapore everyday, in the musuem, galleries and art centers. People in Singapore have opportunity to see arts, learn arts, know arts, practice arts, share arts, buy arts, sell arts. There are art colleges and art school in Singapore too.

People buy and collect original art works and many use art works to decorate the home and office because many original art works are affordable in Singapore. In Singapore you can buy original paintings from art galleries, at exhibitions or online. You can choose the piece that is affordable to you online.
