Bro had some free Singapore Science Centre tickets and so we decided to make it a family outing.
The last time I was at the Science Centre was probably primary school days! These days, kids start younger.
Before the exploration, we had morning dim sum at a centuries-old dim sum restaurant – Red Star. It is a well-blogged about one which I had always wanted to try.
Verdict: Nostalgic feel with old-fashion decor and push cart aunties. But food is probably just alright.
Damage: $82 for 6pax
After brunch, we went the Science Centre. Xi En had a go at everything that he can reached out to – total curiosity:
In particular, he enjoyed running in and out of this confined zone with small animals (and cockroaches I heard. Eekkk…)
We saw how lightning was created as well:
A pity we didn’t managed to get into the Waterworks area which is an outdoor area with lots of water play for kids. But knowing Xi En, he is probably still afraid of such play.
After this trip, I think it is best to revisit when Xi En is at least 2.5 years to enjoy the exhibits better. If you are heading there, my suggestion – go in the later afternoon or early morning so that kids can play at the Waterworks without the hot afternoon sun. Oh – and remember to bring a jacket as it can get cold in inside!
