Singapore Science Centre 18 June 2010

Friday am. World - Acclaimed Singapore Science Centre, Jurong East Mrt. It is made up of 12 exhibition galleries (indoor) ! We have been there 3 times and have yet to explore all the exhibits. On Singapore Science Centre brochure, it said " Even if you spend a mere 5 minutes on each exhibit, it will still take you at least seven days to see all we have to offer here! ". Holy cow! Abundant of thought-provoking experiences.

Public transport in Singapore is such a breeze. :) 

Left- A long walk from aunt's home to MRT station.
Right- Chua Chu Kang station, where we stayed.

Left- Both know how to use the ez-link card now. " tit tit "
Right- After much observation, at the 3rd visit, Hui tried this Eye & Mind-boggling exhibit. Ever wonder how you look like without a body? mwa ha ha ha.

Left- A new exhibit ! It is only a 3 months gap since the last visit at Science Centre, they have put up some new exhibits. *wow*
Right- another new exhibit. Interactive 3D eye glass.

En told me the picture moves. If you stay longer, it does !

Left- A number of drinkable water cooler available.
Right- a new after image play of Michael Jackson.

The staircase area is filled with illusion posters to tease your senses.

The library. Hui asked me how does the pulley system on the car toy set run. I couldn't get it work & so I thought it is not working. En took over and figure out how it works. Gosh!
Left- The selection of science related magazines available! *wowo*
Right- Children section.  

Left- Sound show. Right- Yi & Qi arrived! 4 of them walked hand in hand happily.

The last 27seconds of the sound show.

Left- One of the exhibits of Mathematic Gallery. Varieties of pizza fraction to solve.
Right- Living with Viruses Gallery.

Left- En was delighted seeing scytale! It is featured in one of her favourite book How to Be a Spy in 7 Days or Less
Right- " Wayang kulit " telling story on climate change. En passionately explained how it works.

Left- Award winning Waterworks. We have yet to explore outdoor galleries.
Right- Largest Tesla Coil in the Southeast Asia, 3.5 million volt & 5m long electric sparks. This time, they invited someone to sit inside the cage!

At "Climate Change" gallery. CO2 cycle.

We took the 1015pm night train back to KL. It was a bad choice. Train departed from Tanjung Pagar and custom check is done here. The immigration check is at Woodland, approx an hour later. By the time, the train arrived at Woodland, both EnHui were sound asleep !  Supper was served at Johore. I told the attendant to pass the breakfast as well so I can have a peaceful sleep after that (after the bad experience on the first leg). Train arrived at 7am, KL sentral.

Was I exhausted, cold & hungry? The fried rice is super delicious with a breakfast hot Milo.
