10 days in Singapore

I just got back from a 10 day trip to Singapore. The main reason I went to Singapore was to catch some of the films screening at the Hou Hsiao-hsien film "Also Like Life" film retrospective at the National Museum of Singapore. I recently wrote about my introduction to his films and how much I admire them and was glad to get a chance to see more of films. I managed to watch seven films over two weekends and in between got to explore the city of Singapore.

This is my second trip to Singapore, my first trip was in 2012. My next few posts will be about this trip, so expect more images and highlights.

For now, enjoy this first batch of photos.

I decided to escape 'art week' in Dubai and the film screenings in Singapore was the perfect excuse. But little did I know, wherever I go, Dubai follows.

Experienced some rain on my first day in Singapore.

A temple in Little India.

Shops in Little India.

Saw this in one of my taxi rides around the city. Didn't get the name of the building.
