    Piece of Peace World Heritage Exhibit

    If you haven’t checked out the Piece of Peace World Heritage exhibit in Singapore – there’s still time to see it. The exhibition is a collaboration between LEGO and the Piece of Peace committee to showcase UNESCO heritage sites built using LEGO pieces brick by brick. The exhibition runs from 27 July to 10 September 2017 at the Fort Canning Arts Centre.

    Here are 5 reasons not to miss the Piece of Peace World Heritage exhibit:

    1. Many of us grew up building stuff with LEGO– and I’m sure some of your work did your parents proud. However, what you’ll see at the exhibit are mind-blowing works of art that stretch the limits of what tiny bricks and bits can do when you put the right bits together.
    2. Piece of Peace World Heritage exhibit will be in Singapore only once — it will not make a return. So it’s your only chance to catch the exhibition right at home.
    3. Catch the Singapore-exclusive LOVE ASEAN series here. To celebrate ASEAN’s 50th anniversary, LOVE ASEAN will feature 7 out of 9 brand new replicas of ASEAN UNESCO heritage sites.
    4. Just how good is this exhibit? Originating from Japan, the exhibit has been viewed by 3 million people to date – a testament to how popular the exhibit is. For the Singapore exhibit, you’ll get to see 34 breathtaking replicas of the heritage sites picked from 25 countries including Japan’s Itsukushima Shinto Shrine, Greece’s Acropolis of Athens, Pyramids of Egypt, Australia’s Sydney Opera House and much more.
    5. The exhibit is a charity project born out of a desire to create a fun event that inspires aspirations for a peaceful world. You can do your part by visiting the exhibition to support the cause.

    Puffer fish
    Unlike its moniker, Puffer fish is actually quite friendly and approachable. Unless you’re out to eat her lunch – or dessert — to be precise – then be prepared that she might raise her spikes at you. Good food is just one of her many likes, Puffer Fish also loves visiting new and familiar places around the world because she believes there are always new discoveries and adventures to be had. She considers herself one lucky ass to be able to put her editorial background to good use by sharing her travel and gastronomical adventures online via Gratenews. She hopes readers get as much enjoyment and insights from her pieces as she has writing them.
