A day at the museums

Posted by Dawn at Tuesday, August 09, 2011
Taking advantage of the free entry to museums during this National Day period, we left the house early in the morning to start our day off first at the Singapore Philatelic Museum.
When I was young, I used to collect stamps with my brother as my dad had his own collection of stamps and first day covers. I remembered very vividly how my dad would always show me suitcases of first day covers which he got. I still like stamps but do not really intentionally collect them. I just like to admire the pictures and design of the stamp. In the museum, there were quite a lot to see especially for the kids. They had fun exploring interactive exhibits.
Its quite nostalgic for me as I see things I used to see when I was growing up...like this post office motorbike.
Look how much fun the kids were having..this reminds me of me and my brother as we used to have this at home where we also do the lion dance.
Anyway, after the philatelic museum, we walked down towards SIM and dropped by at the Peranakan Museum. I love Peranakan food by the way because of its spice. Each time I visit Malacca, I will never fail to drop by popular Peranakan Restaurants to satisfy my craving. The kids didnt seem to interested with this one..oh well. Look at what Caleb is doing..
I love their costumes..very intricate.
Along the way to the Singapore Art Museum(SAM), the kids were distracted by the sculptures and water..
There was a huge rabbit at the entrance of SAM.
I have to say, I enjoyed this museum the most because of how they use art to design the wall and there were a lot of creative stuff going on in there.
There was also a film for the kids to watch and it was quite meaningful. So we rested our legs by catching the movie. Interestingly, Danielle went up all the way in front to catch the show while Caleb preferred to sit at the back. Anyway, after the show, there was a room for the kids to play. Caleb was of course more interested in the toy trains while Danielle was busy colouring. Typical boy and girl.
After that, the kids were all tired. Danielle was sleeping in my helper's arms during lunch. Hope the kids enjoyed themselves and learnt something!
