I went to Parkway Parade to visit their exhibition on Rites of Passage as I live near there. The exhibition on Rites of Passage will be from 25 July to 31 July 2011 at Basement 1 level of Parkway Parade. There will be special performances from 2-8pm on 30 July (Sat) and 1-7pm on 31 July (Sun) at Parkway Parade as well.

News of a woman expecting a baby is always a beautiful moment. It’s a special milestone in the lives of two married people and those around them. It’s the beginning of months of joy, and a lifetime of adventures. The birth of a child also ushers in the start of a new generation. What, then, follows the birth of a child? Find out in this exhibit as we take a look at growing up in Singapore.

Q: How I feel about coming to this exhibition?

It was a very enriching experience to know more about the cultures of the taboos and habits when woman is expecting the baby till the birth of a child and the growing up process of the child. Such as ear piercing for the girls, when the child takes its 1st holy communion (for the Catholics) and many interesting information.

So do come and visit the exhibition at Parkway Parade to learn more about the Rites of Passage from now till 31 July 2011!
