Will the shape course of the Singapore River change in the future?

Based on your observation along the Singapore River and inferences, explain the activities that are carried out along the river during the early days and present days

In the early days, the Singapore River was the old port of Singapore and was used for trading and shipping business in Singapore. It was the center of trade, commerce and finance. 

Now the Singapore River is used as a tourist attraction and an aesthetic for the commercial zone around it. 

Using photographic evidences, do you think the shape course of Singapore River will change in the future? Justify your answers.

I do not think that the shape course of the Singapore River will change in the future. This is because the Singapore River is one of Singapore's important and most well known landmarks and it has a long history and heritage. It will be preserved for a long time for its aesthetic purpose and also to show the future generations what Singapore was like last time.

Artefacts at ACM

This is the Asian civilisations museum where we conducted out research and where we also gained knowledge about the civilisation that we picked which was on China. These are 3 artefacts that we have chosen to present. 

This is the Long-yan wood Couch bed which is a piece of multi-purpose furniture which was used in traditional chinese households either as a bed or a seat in households. It was made to resemble the pelt of a tiger. The bed is described as stout and heavy, and it is adorned with designs. 

This dish here is the Large Famille Rose Dish (1723-1793). The name of this dish here is derived from the pink enamel. This pink enamel is created by mixing several kinds of enamels together. These new enamels possibly developed from the chinese cloisonné enamel tradition. This method was previously used by the westerners already.
