Huji in SG

I caved in and joined the Huji craze. Huji is a camera app that works like a disposable film camera and “develops” the photos in a vintage wash.

During our Singapore Trip, I used the Huji app for low light and indoor photos. There were also times that taking out a huge camera was a hassle so I used my phone to take photos and still come up with cool-looking results.

We left the a rainy homeland for a sunny weekend in Singapore.

The Bras Basah complex is a haven for everything art related — art materials, printing services, craft materials, educational materials, etc.

Our home for the weekend

Chinatown is the best place to buy pasalubong (souvenirs)

Art Science Museum

It was a lucky day for Ceres because we came to Singapore right in time for the Marvel Exhibit at the Art Science Museum. We took a chance on the exhibit because we thought that tickets were sold out when we tried buying a ticket online. To our surprise, walk-ins were accepted and we were able to get up close and personal with the Infinity Wars characters.

Don’t tell Thanos that the gauntlet is safely hidden in┬áthe basement of the Art Science Museum.

Are you brave enough to join the battle?

(Not a Huji shot) At the end of the exhibit, you can “sit” with the cast.

The exhibit runs from June 9 to September 30, 2018. So if you have plans to go to Singapore during those dates, go drop by the Marvel Exhibit at the Art Science Museum.

Besides the Marvel Exhibit, there was also the Future World Exhibit where art and science collide. It features digital and interactive installations that is perfect for adults and children alike.

The blocks are stackable (and a great backdrop for low light photos)

National Library

We dropped by the National Library before taking our last meal in Singapore and before heading to the airport on our last day. If you’re in the Bugis area and you want some down time in the midst of books, drop by the National Library. It’s open to the public and you’re free to read any book in their collection.

My favorite part of the library: the children’s section

In the library, there was also a small exhibit of SG landmarks made from Lego bricks. There are still famous landmarks that I haven’t visited which could be included in the itinerary for the next Singapore Trip in the future.

Thian Hock Keng Temple (Telok Ayer)

The other landmark that I wasn’t able to take a photo of was an old railroad station. I’m not sure if it was Bukit Timah or Tanjong Pagar.

Three of the landmarks featured are already ticked off from my “Things to See.” I was amazed at how accurate the brick installations captured the details of the actual buildings. Besides taking photos of the mini versions, I’m also attaching the actual photos of those buildings to see the comparisons.

I’m loving the Huji app because it makes phone camera photos look vibrant. I rarely take photos using my camera because of the low quality (or maybe I just don’t know how to maximize and create beautiful shots with my phone) but after downloading the app, I am now a Huji addict. There’s no pressure on wasting film and I always get the perfect analogue vibe on every photo. #notsponsored
