I visited the Singapore Discovery Centre (non-related to the photo above, haha) over the weekend with my closest cousins, Xiuwei, Shirley and nephew Noel.
I've been living in Singapore for the past 24 years, and this is probably the first time I stepped foot into SDC. I was as excited as my 10 year old (and new favourite) nephew Noel; who loves watching Discovery Channel and probably knows more about science and chemistry than us 3 cousins put together.
Spend a day with him; he'll rattle off fascinating things he learnt from watching Mythbusters, tell you which plane crashed in which year, how to cheat different security systems and even how to build a mini bomb (!!!). And of course, you won't be spared from the endless questions about everything (which you often won't be able to answer, unless you're some sort of walking encyclopedia).
We watched both 4D shows (the one where there are moving chairs and wind simulations), which lasted about 15 minutes each and both 3D shows; Call of the Wild and Coraline (I have to say, Coraline was one of the stranger cartoons I've watched), did the shooting gallery and explored the exhibitions a little.
Lots of photos to be uploaded... soon. (I have been procrastinating. There are a million photos to be uploaded but I don't know what's keeping me.)
I've been spending some money, but well worth it I think. FINALLY (!!!) found opaque black stockings, for only S$9 and you'll never guess; from This Fashion! They seem to be of surprisingly good quality. I got myself a pretty schedule book for S$24.90 from Artbox, those kind where the pages on the inside are so pretty and colourful, I almost cannot bear to write on them.
(I just realise, every sentence in the last paragraph is exclaimed!)
