Explore Singapore! series: Betel chewing and head hunting

In the above video clip of Explore Singapore! TV Series, treat yourself to some gamelan music. Also, you will get to learn about "betel chewing" and head-hunting. You would also get to see a Qing dynasty dragon robe in this clip.

I think Simple American, Little Miss May, JY and Kunstemaecker may like this clip.

Hi May: Hmm....cheesy??? which part? Maybe I was too focused on the museums to even take note of the cheesy part....

I think May is referring to the faichai (fat guy) lenglui that give the tour. The are cute but cheesy. What they show is definitely interesting though.
