For this whole journey to Singapore River at Clarke Quay and Asian Civilisation Museum for the eLearning activity, we have broadened by knowledge of education by a vast amount and that is impossible to find during curriculum lessons. The scenery there is quite beautiful as there are Skyscrapers along the River and many boats shaped in the past that are in operation. There are many tourists who took a cruise in those boats too! We could tell they were quite fascinated by the scenery there. At some areas along the River where the are selling Ice-Cream stalls. We took a bite there for rest after we had done the activities in the Asian Civilisation Museum.

We faced difficulty traveling but we could not do anything about it because we had to walk on foot from place to place. During peak periods, there are many adults who sit along the benches outside the office building or the stairs along the river to take their lunch. They would stare at us which made us feel rather uncomfortable. They probably thought we were all playing truant! So we had to try our best to avoid any eye contact with the adults.

If we had the opportunity to do this task again, we would first plan our schedule and split up the work as this round was rather disorganized. This would save us tremendous amount of time.

Through this E-learning trip, i feel that i have learnt a lot about the history of Singapore as well as the geological view of the Singapore river and how it was came to built. Through the artifacts we saw in the ACM (Asian Civilisation Museum) i learnt about the history of different races in Singapore like the Chinese, Malay, Hindus and etc, this allows me to understand the multiple races of Singapore much better. Through the walk down the Singapore River, we spotted many landmarks which somehow showed the contribution by the traders which were trading in Singapore as the Singapore River was once a busy port. All in all, i have learnt a lot about the cultural and geological perspective of Singapore.

Reflections on the Singapore River trip

Asian Civilisations Museum

We saw ancient artifacts of a shipwreck and also we were able to touch some of them!

Chinese Culture

    This is a flask from a shipwreck of a Chinese trader's boat.
Information on the flask: China CA 830 Made of glided silver. This flask is notable from its size and its workmanship.

Some of the pictures were blur as there was poor lighting 

At the Asian Civilisations Museum we also learnt about some other cultures.
