Singapore Science Centre 2009

I went to Da Vinci the Genius exhibition on the very first day. Even though I was not allowed to take photos inside the exhibition, but the experience was awesome! There was so many machine inventions and artworks by Da Vinci.

I was allowed to take photos outside!

Since my last visit to the Science Centre a few years back, I was so excited to discover many new exhibits inside the Science Centre.

Look at me! My head is on a plate!!! Boo yaaaa!!!
And what is that? A walking nose? No, I'm not a nosy person!

I was checking my pulse and the result showed I had super high blood pressure! I am going to die!!! Hahahaha, I am kidding of course!

40.72kg is my current weight! I lost 2 kg since the last 2 months! It's really hard for me to gain weight!

I always remember to check out the lovely EcoGarden whenever I come to the Science Centre.

I love this herb garden, most of the pretty flowers are from here! I focused too much in taking photos of plants and flowers, so I didn't manage to take the full views of each area. The EcoGarden looked even much prettier than the last time I visited!

I took a photo at this spot 3 years ago. Check it out here.

Climbed up the tree house again! The tree house is still the same as 3 years ago!

This time I spotted a few little ponds and cross bridges in the garden!

Before I go, I still managed to play at the outdoor playground.

Trying on the log roll and the stationary cycler to test my balance.

This 25th of May is my birthday!

Happy Birthday to Bear Bear!

But I'm going on a holiday! 'Til then! See you next update!

Singapore Art Museum

I went to the Singapore Art Museum after visiting the National Art Museum of Singapore the previous day. I guess I was in the mood of visiting museums these days!

On the way to the museum, Lg saw these bamboo trees and asked me to munch on some bamboo leaves as snacks! No, I didn't taste it! XD

The outlook of the museum! Can you spot the panda poster? I was excited to visit "An Unbroken Line: The Wu Guanzhong Donation collection" exhibition but I don't have any photos of this exhibition.

Because photography was not allowed in ALL the galleries in this museum!
Security guards were everywhere. I saw some people still sneaking their camera out to capture some photos, but got warns from the guards. I didn't do that.
Although I felt a little disappointed but I still respect that rule!

Since I don't have any photos inside the galleries. Most of the photos in this post are photos of myself! It's a Bear Bear's exhibition! My rule is simple "Please do not touch!".

I still had lots of fun touring the museum!

Guess what I wrote on that board? My Bear Bear signature!

By the way, I'm going to visit another exhibition next weekend, it's all about Da Vinci! I hope photography is allowed this time!

Bye for now!

Christian Lacroix the costumier

I went to the National Museum of Singapore to visit the Christian Lacroix the costumier exhibition.

The experience was great! For the very first time, I could see lots of the fancy costumes up close in person.

"In Asia for the very first time, close to 80 spectacular costumes and 60 sketches from the collection of the Centre National du Costume de Scene (National Stage Costume Centre, Moulins, France) and from Lacroix's personal collection..."

Most of the time, you are not allowed to take photos inside the galleries but sometimes you are allowed to take photos without flash. I respect that rule, it encourages people to visit the museum and see the exhibitions personally.

This pretty "Love Tank (The Temple)" by S.Teddy Darmawan was displayed at the entrance of the museum.

I like the idea of this artist. " This work expresses the encounter between East and West through the visual language of seven tanks stacked on top of one another into the form of a pagoda. The tanks are decorated with lotuses and hearts as a camouflage: the killing machine is now a machine bringing love and peace to humankind in this world..."

Admiring the costume collection.

I felt like I was at the opera theater.

The gallery was decorated with lovely chairs and chandeliers in the dark and quiet atmosphere! Perfect for your mind to float with inspirations.

You could even touch the fabrics used in making the costumes! You cannot touch the actual costume though!

Sharing with you photos of all the fantastic sketches!

It was a pleasant surprise for me that I was allowed to take photographs in all the galleries in National Museum of Singapore this time. Here are some photos of me exploring the museum.

I posted about my trip to this museum before in 2006. Check it out here.

Visiting museums always give me lots of inspirations. This time the experience even recalled my childhood dream to become a fashion designer, that I thought I have given up for many years ago.

I've started working on my sketches again. I will show you when I'm done!

I want to make my childhood dream come true!
p/s: Suddenly I remembered this saying "If you keep your destiny in mind, every moment in life becomes an opportunity for moving closer to it". I gotta keep that in my mind all the time now!
