Here are some photos I took to help you decide if it's worth spending a couple of hours there. Admission is free, and there are lots of free gifts and special offers if you bring along the coupons published in the Friday papers.
|Some of the highlights include talks by medical professionals, estate planners and cooking demonstrations by master chefs.|
|Long queues for free health checks by practitioners of traditional Chinese health therapies..|
|A wide range of Chinese herbs to choose from for healing common ailments.|
|There's also a "Shoot for Life" photography competition...|
|as well as a "Fill this space" art competition for the best coffin design aka how you would want your casket decorated!|
|On my wish wish - a motorized bicycle. More models of motorized vehicles for the elderly at this e-bike booth. To view the complete range, go to http://www.ebike.sg/|
|One of the finalists in the "Golden Voices" singing competition. Some of these old-timers can really sing! There's also a beauty pageant, K-pop dances and an open line dance session.|
|Nirvana Memorial Garden presented a documentary promoting their columbarium services. I must say it was an 8-minute visual experience that was both informative and impressive. I hesitated to ask about the cost - probably beyond the means of the average family. For more info, go to http://www.nirvana.sg/|
After visiting "Life Matters", you can opt for a 180-degree change in mood at the adjacent venue where there's an electronic expo and a food fair. A 3-in-1 Sunday outing at Suntec Convention Centre. Well worth the three hours I spent there yesterday.
