The Asian Civilisations Museum former building before conservation and revamp in the 1960s.
The WNR II Convention was held at the Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM), Singapore at the River Room, Level 2, Asian Civilisations Museum on 28 November, 2011.
The ACM is located beside the Singapore River, my favorite quiet spot in the evening.
Once when I was watching the river flow with inspirations, I blog "One Way Ticket to Singapore River" here .

Speech by Guest-of-Honour, Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts.
Dr Yaacob Ibrahim: "I remember when I was a kid, we were issued with the POSB “Save At School” stamp card with empty boxes for pasting postage stamps, and we would use our savings to buy 5-cent or 10-cent stamps to paste onto the card. When we complete the card with 20 stamps, we will give it to the school which will send it in to the bank, and it adds to our savings account. Till today, I still have a POSB account. The SMP aims to do the same – for every Singaporean to start the habit of saving. But, in this case, we are saving our memories and depositing them into a shared memory bank for ourselves, our children, grandchildren, and for others to enjoy, and more importantly, to enrich their lives".Chit-chat with Dr Yaacob Ibrahim during lunch and networking.
