We organized a training event for members in Vietnamese Women’s Museum – an increasingly important site for our tours. Arriving at 8 am, we were really eager to know about this site, especially the newbies, they arrived soon, all prepared to take notes and some even brought records and cameras! We had a small chit-chat to warm up the atmosphere before really starting the training. It was also the time for the oldies to get acquainted with the newbies.
After that, we got inside the museum. The museum is a close partner so we were warmly welcomed and introduced around with the utmost friendliness. The site consists of 3 main parts: women in family, women in history and women’s fashion.
The last part of the museum was dedicated for women’s traditional clothes of some ethnic groups, and the techniques to make them. It was interesting to know that some decorations were made of beeswax or a bracelet which link to the spirit of the owner. The top floor was a temporary exhibition about Singaporean culture. From here you can have an amazing view to the ground floor through the round window decorated with colorful conical hats.
At the end of the training time, we expressed our gratefulness to the Museum for their kind help to us in holding the event. Saying farewell to the museum’s staff, we gathered and had a friendly talk among the members to better understand each other and bridge the gap between different generations of the club.
For all the helpful and meaningful things that we’ve learned from this training, it was one of the most interesting events that I’ve ever attended since I joined the club. Special thanks to Vietnamese Women’s Museum for always being our close partner. And thank you, the audience, for your continuous support to our club. We promise that we’ll bring you more great articles in the near future. See you then!
