Three modern/contemporary ballets by the Singapore Dance Theatre. A couple of weeks ago we went to an introduction to the pieces given by the artistic director, Janek Schergen. His explanation and the accompanying demonstrations of the dances was really illuminating. So we went back for more!!!!!
Glow-Stop was our favorite dance work.
Orchard Road has new shopping malls.........like it needs more!!!! ION........"An ion is an atom or molecule where the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving it a net positive or negative electrical charge." Nice.....but what has that got to do with a Cathederal to the new religion.......consumerism?
Frankly I found it mind numbing, a net negative electrical charge for me then. Where are the shops, you might ask. Lurking!!!
More void than substance.
There are tens of escalators. This has to be the longest one in Singapore. Takes you down 3 floors down to B4.

Well, I am going to have to read all John Man's books. They are all conjoined!!! So far read Ghengis Khan, Kublai Khan and the Terracotta Army. So readable. Have to be, to keep my attention!!!! And as usually, John goes myth busting. When you look at maps of Mongolia, walls are shown practically on the Russian border. I had wondered how this could be if the walls were meant to keep out the Mongol raiders and thier kin from China? Attila The Hun next!!!!!
There are two guys in there, really. Loved it. Going back on Saturday to watch the finals. Still feeling for the lads who had to withdraw gutted.
