Singapore Science Centre

My 4th sis happened to have free tickets to Science Centre end of last year.
Its been so long since I last visited the place. Its the first time for the boys though, most of the attractions there were way too comprehensive for them to decipher at this moment. My main purpose is to bring them to the WaterWorks Exhibition for some water fun. The moment I reached the venue. I was so disappointed. See the notice there?

It read :
Dear Visitor, due to a technical fault, Waterworks Exhibition will be closed until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience caused. Thank You.


Completely disappointed....Brought all the necessities for the 2 boys & they cant enjoy the fun. Consider a good sunny day for December for outdoor fun .... arrrgghhhhh :(

Luckily, its the first time there for the boys so they still do not know that there is such a fun water splash area. Or else, sure will make a fuss... hehe ;p


On the right is the Science Time Capsule to be opened in the year 2011. It contains science & tech artifacts from the year 1973, 1983 & 2001.
The 2 boys turning the wheels outdoor while my sis queing up for Zac's ticket. My sis only have sufficient tickets for the adults


What a creative optic illusion.... see Zac's body "missing"? He actually entered the table from another room !! ;p


Amos.... so...oooooo CUTE, he kept touching the fruits & wanting to eat them... wahahahahaha :D:D:D:D:D:D


Zac went around to try on all the exhibits. He was jumping with joy while turning the lever at the exhibits for the primary school :)


Hey... look... the 2 youngest news broadcaster !! LOL :D


See, the Astroboy brothers. The one on the left is Zac, the other is Amos, helper standing behind Amos in case he fell off.... kekeke ;)

I actually took a lot of pics, but only chose all these which I though were more entertaining...:)

Lastly, had dinner at the Mcdonalds....

The outlet displayed an incredible collection of their passed collectibles. I saw one of the Fries collectible series (3rd row from the left) that I wanted badly for Zac the last time when he was young. What happen was that, when he was about 1 yr+, bringing him out for meals was a challenge, he refused to sit still unless have fries on the table. So every time I had to purchase a packet of fries will he sit still. That was how the thought of getting the Fries toy came about to distract him !!


It was a tiring day walking through all the exhibits.

The boys as usual.... doZzzzzed off on the way home.... :)

61 Hugs for Amos & Zac:

Hi jan, i know how it feels.

It is tiring bringing my son out also. But when i see him playing and thoroughly enjoying himself, i felt that everything is worth it!
I brought my son to vivocity play court to play with water and slide. He loved it so much.

Will bring my son to science centre if got time. Thanks for sharing. Cheers!
