Whats Doing; SINGAPORE
PAMELA G. HOLLIE is a New York Times correspondent based in Manila. BY PAMELA G. HOLLIE Singapore, the most beautiful and cosmopolitan Southeast Asian city, comes as a surprise to most visitors.

MET OPERA BALLET IS DANCING UPTOWN
Ballet dancers in opera companies get to dance a lot of Walpurgisnachtian orgiasts or waltzing, glass-raising party guests, but often not much else. Tonight through Sunday afternoon, however, New Yorkers will have a chance to see the Metropolitan Opera Ballet in a program of real dance at City Colleges well-appointed Aaron Davis Hall, not the first such program the company has performed in its 99-year history, but certainly one of the most varied. The company, now under the direction of Donald Mahler, will perform the third-act pas de deux from Coppelia, as well as works by such modern ballet choreographers as Anthony Tudor, Benjamin Harkarvy, Norbert Vesak and Jean-Pierre Bonnefous. In the minds of most balletomanes, Mr. Bonnefous will probably always be associated with the New York City Ballet, for which he left the Paris Opera Ballet in 1970. But the lingering effects of an onstage injury sustained seven years later forced him to leave City Ballet. Mr. Bonnefous turned to choreography, a longtime interest.

Slow. Quiet. Courtly. You Say Its in New York?
There are many places to escape within New York Citys limits. The Cloisters take you to another time; the Hayden Planetarium, to other worlds. The Noguchi Sculpture Garden can transport you to another culture and another state of mind. But only the M104 bus can take you to all of these at once. At the far eastern end of the M104 bus route is the United Nations: another country, another state of mind, housed in a towering blue-green tourist attraction that symbolizes aspirations conceived in another time.. United Nations headquarters may physically exist in New York City, but citys noise and rudeness give way to calm and courtesy within UN walls; diplomats are mostly unaffected by their greater surroundings; photos (L)
