Rainy Day @ Chijmes, Singapore

CHIJMES is a group of historic buildings which began life as a Catholic convent known as the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus (CHIJ) and convent quarters known as Caldwell House. The grand Anglo-French Gothic chapel in this sketch was completed in 1904. Today sadly the chapel is a function hall, providing a backdrop for musicals, recitals, theatrical performances and weddings. The rest of the convent quarters have been turned into restaurants and souvenir shops. Personally I find it rather disrespectful to this grand old dame.
