Yesterday was Friday. It is Friday Family Friendly day at Art Science Museum @ Marina Bay Sands.
Entering “The Deep” is free on Friday. We only paid 2x adults ticket for the DreamWorks exhibition and “The Deep” is free, and Singapore past stories is free too. Quite worth it for Friday visits.
After seeing this exhibition, my only thoughts were… Aliens…..
Think about it. Why the sea has so many creatures that we had not seen on the land.
Could it be the reason that they are from outer space?
Our planet earth been bombarded by asteroids for so many millions of years.
All these asteroids from outer space came from where? May be some planets few million light years away.
Imagine, they are from these planets. And if they can survive the whole journey coming from their planets to Earth, they sure have extra ordinary surviving power.
By interacting with the native creatures (from Earth), they probably evolve in a certain way.
The big sea is a very big place. It covers almost the entire earth. So, who knows what you can find under the seabed.
That is why there are so many funny looking creatures.
Or is it we watched too many Sci-Fi movies and get to see all kinds of Aliens on the TV, and the TV series producers or artist got their idea from all these sea creatures? No wonder we have those kind of familiar feelings?
Nobody knows. I still think they are aliens.
These are some more photos on these deep sea creatures.
Oh ya… a few families had a museum playdates. Spontaneous decision at 8am… and by 10am, we are all here...
We also dropped by DreamWorks.
This is what I talk about.
DreamWorks teaches the kids how to make a story board, a animation movie.
Of course, they show case the few famous animations made by DreamWorks.
Through technology, the kids get to learn how to create various animation with various facial expression. Using HP computers and softwares.
It is quite cool. And the kids loves it.
Not easy to create an animation movie.
Thank goodness you have all the computer aided softwares to help you to render the ocean, etc.
The kids get to learn about modelling too.
I get the chance to play with the animation too.
Look at what the kids create. A rolling ball. With a earthquake mountain.
It is all about interaction, and the kids love it!
It is time for more games outside. This one is easy. Throw 3 fishes into the dragon mouth.
OK. This one is harder. No wonder Kay Kay skip the queue and run away. He will then come back to do it later.
Let’s see how Gwen does it.
Is she better than Kungfu Panda?
Use the force. Stable stable.
Oh this one, he really used the force. Second try and hit the bell!
Once you get 4 chops, you can get a gingerbread boy.
All the kids are hungry now. The food court is very crowded. Every place is crowded except for this small Japanese restaurant just on the right side when you come in from the Art Science Museum.
After lunch, the kids went to Lilli Putt to play.
And they played 18 holes there.
And later we continue the play dates in one of the kids home.
And the parents just enjoyed ourselves.
Looks simple. Great food!
Great wine! Of course!
That concludes the only day during this September School holiday where I spent time with the kids. It was a busy week. Glad that manage to arrange ad-hoc
one playdates for them. Nice!
