Joyce and I went to this event called Raga Remix at Asian Civilization Museum. It’s a concert that featured local performers namely
In this event, I observed that Singapore crowd was not very interactive. It’s not that I’ve already attended a lot of concerts here. It’s just an individual observation. There were very few interactive people, which age ranged from 2-4years old. It seemed that kids enjoyed the whole thing more than the adults.
Joyce and I were controlling ourselves to start the real partying. We were somehow afraid to look insane in front of these (e)motionless people.
Anyway, this event became unforgettable (at least for me) when the Bhangra group started to call for volunteers to dance with them. We, obviously, volunteered ourselves because we wanted our potential energy (we’ve been trying so hard to keep it inert for the past few hours) to finally explode into wild kinetic energy! We danced Bhangra in front of a lot of people! We had so much fun! At least we were able to ’party’ even if it’s just for a few minutes!
We also went to walk inside the museum for a while because entrance was free that time. Though we weren’t able to conquer and see all the exhibits due to time constraint, we managed to see Tang Shipwreck, Singapore River Gallery and South East Asia Galley.
My favorite piece, Osa osa. It was said to be seats of high honour used in Nias (Island, Indonesia) by people of noble birth during feasts and festivals. I think I want something like this in my house..=)
