Interesting display of Chinese ink art
Dec 2014 • Solo
There's currently a small exhibition of Chinese ink art on level 2 of the Teo Chew building. Most of the art is quite modern (within the last 10 years) but still quite pretty. Worth a quick stop if you happen to be in the vicinity.

Good Try But Limited By Poor Publicity
Nov 2014 • Solo
This is an attempt by the Teochew community to showcase Chinese culture as well as that of Teochews, one of the main dialect/vernacular groups in Singapore. The Centre is small and pale in comparison to the national efforts at the Singapore National Museum or the Peranakan Museum. There is a display of old photographs, calligraphies, paintings, Chinese medicine, and Chinese musical instruments. Although setup in 1998, poor publicity means few travellers know this place. Ironically its objectives is to demonstrate Teochew culture to the world. The nearest subway is Clarke Quay. It can be humid walking from Ngee Ann Centre to Fort Canning or Clarke Quay. Bring along an umbrella or raincoat (for Nov-Dec months). Incidentally, Ngee Ann is also the namesake as Ngee Ann City (a shopping centres that houses Takashimaya). At the cultural centre, one will find an old picture that shows Ngee Ann City sat on the old Teochew cemetery, right in he middle of Orchard Road.
