Its the weekend, and i really want to have a short #wanderlust away from this bustling city, the usual scenes and familiar faces. I guess i am not the hereforeverguy, i’m more like the heretopassbykindofaguy. I really don’t know. I like new experiences, i like stuffs that makes life interesting and enriching.
Daai Gallery, 大愛人文館, hidden along queen ave is a public gallery cum volunteer training centre operated for volunteers. The gallery exhibits and celebrate the love and spirit of Tzu Chi’s mission.
As quoted from Sister Xiao,
Great Love and Spirit of Tzuchi cannot be replace, even if Tzuchi is no longer around one day.
The gallery is housed in a black & white painted bungalow, previously built to house British military officers, their families, or expatriates from the European countries before world war II.
Most of the “AngMohChu” were built in the south-central parts of Singapore like Alexandra, Rochester and Dempsey, and more recently built in areas like Sembawang, Seletar and Changi, where they were built to accommodate military personnel required to run the Air and Naval bases present in the area.
I came to recce the venue for an upcoming tc camp.. and we were given a very good tour around by the founder of this place, Sister Xiao.
Photos are not allowed in the gallery, so i briefly took afew one outside.. there are many interesting & quiet spots that really makes you want to stay there the whole day and contemplate on life.
Looking for inspiration or somewhere to read a book and contemplate bout life? This is one of the latest secret of Singapore for you…
