The MRT series – Chinese Garden (EW25)

Remember we wrote about the gardens here? Well, this post is not to repeat any of that, but to draw the fact that this gardens was more than simply a place for public enjoyment. Did you know it was also often used as a film set?

You see, our little red dot does not have much real estate to devoted to film arts particularly if the setting was in say ancient China. So the TV serials had to find places beyond studio sets for outdoor filming. Plus, it is too expensive to bring the entire cast to China for the filming. LOL.

So along with little Guilin (remember the Bukit Gombak post?) local sites were used. How do we know? Heheh… because Suan was a cultural dancer who often performed in the background!
