This & That Including What Ails

Museum Of Sports

on June 27, 2017

I took my parents to walk the Tanjong Rhu Promenade since now I know of this lovely scenic location.

Just a short stroll, a leisurely lunch and shopping – great to keep seniors engaged and have a bit of sunshine and fresh air. Thankfully, it was cloudy and not a scorcher!

We passed by the Museum of Sports which curated all the old sports equipment this lil red dot used to sell.

Given that my parents were not avid sports fans, we gave it a miss. It costs $10 per entry though.

I could see from afar, antiquated Shimano bicycles or actually they were tricycles.

Definitely not on our “interested” things to see.

Mum would be fascinated by plants or flowers whilst dad would be happy to look at the scenery or architecture around this place….and yes…food…tue common denominator of pleasers ha ha😃

About the photos:

1st 2 photos were quilts hung in the lobby of the Sports Museum. Each square of the quilt had a significant milestone history of Singapore, ranging from our campaigns for betterment, down to sports events. 

I loved the vibrant colors of each square and the symbolic significance it carried in message.

The 3rd photo is a close up of the national stadium which is really modern and stylist with the signature retractable dome roof. 

It comprises aquatic center, multi sports arena and of course dovetailed nicely to juxtapose with the indoor stadium by Japanese architect, Kenzo Tange. 

This Indoor Stadium has a seating capacity of 12,000 people and was built at a cost of SGD90 million. (*not pictured)

Built at a cost of SGD1.3 billion,this iconic structure of the Sports Hub – national stadium shown in photo above is built by DP Architects. It is 35 hectares in land size.
