Spending time in an art gallery is one of the happiest moments for me. But, I didn’t get such a chance until last week my visit to Dhoby Ghaut for some another reason. After my tasks done, I spent my time walking around the area with my son. While he was having a nap I visited the Visual Arts Centre which is an exhibition gallery located near the Dhoby Ghaut Green.

    • I also confused.Then I saw blood in chicken.The balloon is like a birthday party balloon.So,I tried connecting celebrations and chicken. 🙂
