Trick Eye Museum Singapore Plus Giveaway!

Media Invite

Art of Love

Wassup everyone! I had a super duper fun filled long weekend at Trick Eye Museum Singapore at Resorts World Sentosa! The name “Trick Eye” comes from the shortened form of the term Trick of the eye and refers to an art technique that turns two-dimensional paintings into three-dimensional images. It is through the use of optical illusions that three-dimensional paintings on the surfaces of the museum walls, floors and ceilings come alive. The museum offers various themed galleries where visitors are more than welcome to be part of the creative experience and are encouraged to explore with their eyes, hands and cameras too.

There are many artworks at the museum which are perfect interaction between parent and children, which makes Trick Eye Museum the latest family-friendly attraction in Singapore. Apart from family outings, it is also a great place for double dates too! So glad that we asked PR and J along, and we had double the fun! :) Hope you enjoy the photos that we took and please take part in our giveaway contest!

Alive Museum Singapore Review

IMG_4837

Guess who’s back! 😀 The hubs touched down on Monday at around 2am while my FIL and I waited for about an hour at the airport because of the flight delay. But it’s ok! Was super looking forward to misterchewy’s return after 18 days of his absence. Despite not having enough rest, we headed to Alive Museum at Suntec City before noon because my ticket was valid only till that day. I was supposed to join my colleagues after our teambuilding session at LaserOPS which happened like a month ago but I had to rush back home. Almost forgot about my ticket until I was clearing my wallet. This is one of my favorite photos taken at the Alive Museum! I would advise ladies to wear shorts or jeans because there would be plenty of sitting, squatting and lying down for crazy and wacky shots! 😛

IMG_4810

There were a couple of exhibits right outside Alive Museum that you can pose with even without an entrance ticket. We had an appointment in the afternoon so we kinda rushed through a little. It was just snap and go without wasting too much time. Anyway, do you know that there is free WiFi access in the museum? You can upload your phtos on the go!

IMG_4815

Alive Museum is Singapore’s brand new fun and entertainment destination which is suitable for people of all ages. Sprawling over 10,000 square feet, more than 80 artwork exhibits are brought ALIVE with 3D painting, shading and drawing techniques that create visual illusions. Not only will visitors be able to experience magical ideas in reality by touching and watching objects, they will also be part of the masterpiece!

Hehe ok that’s all! Adult tickets cost $25 and there’s a 20% discount for online booking at the moment. I find that it is kinda pricey given that Alive Museum isn’t really such a big scale exhibition. However, if you are around Suntec City area and have a couple of hours to kill, do pop by and have a good time!

Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition & Pizzeria Mozza @ MBS

_MG_2970

Helloooo my dear friends! I managed to squeeze some time out to do this short and a little outdated (oops!) post. It’s still worth reading ok! 😛 So, here we go! Sometime in April, misterchewy and I went to check out Titantic: The Artifact Exhibition at Marina Bay Sands! I should have blogged about this earlier because the exhibition ended on 29 April but I was really busy :( The tickets were priced at $20 each for Singaporeans but I managed to get them at a slightly cheaper rate because of corporate discount 😀

_MG_2999

We didn’t have to queue to buy the tickets because they were issued to us beforehand. But, we had to be part of the freaking long queue to enter the exhibition area! I’m holding up our boarding passes! :)

_MG_2998

OMG I swear my face fell the moment I saw that we were being issued Third Class Cabin passes! D: D: D: And no, we weren’t travelling together. Haha. I’m a middle-aged Mrs Williams Coutts who was travelling with her two young sons. LOL misterchewy was supposed to be an agricultural inspector! Anyway, Mrs Coutts and her sons survived!

_MG_3005

Ummm these are the only few photos that we took outside. Photography is strictly prohibited inside the exhibition so yeah, we were being very obedient 😛 There were two photo-stops, but we weren’t allowed to use our own cameras. One ‘photographer’ was stationed at each stop to take our photos and it is up to us whether we want to buy them.

_MG_3010

Hubby Chewy and I enjoyed ourselves tremendously! Our favorite part of the exhibit was at the deck where there was a fake canopy of twinkling stars and when you peered down, it seemed as if the deep blue waters were moving gently. It was there and then where misterchewy and I stole a kiss 😛 The entire setup was amazingly romantic! <3

_MG_3028

It was around 10pm but we hadn’t had dinner! Hungry us found ourselves at Pizzeria Mozza! Thank goodness last order’s at 11pm.

_MG_3016

Haha misterchewy was overjoyed because this was one of the places that he had shortlisted to celebrate one of our monthsaries. I had rejected him back then because I didn’t feel like eating pizza 😛 LOL I’m very fussy so he has been conditioned to make many backup plans!

_MG_3024

_MG_3026

Our cutlery were kept in an envelope! Very interesting right? In the background was our paper bag of bread sticks.

_MG_3033

Initially we only ordered this Bacon, Salami, Fennel sausage, Pancetta, Tomato & Mozzarella Pizza ($37) to share. Don’t let the puffy crust fool you, our pizza ain’t that big! Sorry, couldn’t help but sulk over its size because we were starving! It was cut up into 6 slices and I let misterchewy have 4. The pizza was actually quite yummy and savory!

_MG_3038

We were still hungry and ordered some chicken wings with hot mustard which cost us $18. Guess what? There were only 3 wings! :O Sorry no pics because we couldn’t be bothered. Hungry beyond words! Ok, to be fair, they were really splendid! But still, $18 is kinda steep.

The Chewys at Titantic Grand Staircase

Ending the post with this photo that misterchewy and I took at the iconic Grand Staircase of Titanic! :))

Terracotta Warriors (兵马俑) @ Asian Civilisation Museum!

Terracotta Warriors Cover

BB Chew and I finally checked out the Terracotta Warriors exhibit at Asian Civilisation Museum! A couple of weeks back, the boy suggested paktor-ing there.. Frankly speaking, I wasn’t the least bit excited but his enthusiasm kinda rubbed off on me. I have never ever liked or knew how to appreciate history. I hated all that memorizing work and barely passed this pain-in-the-ass subject in lower secondary.

_MG_3846

So why are we here? Thanks to LOVE LOVE LOVE. The power of love. I can’t believe I looked so happy in this photo. We had a quick lunch at McD which was nearby and while making our way to ACM, I told BB Chew that surely, the surname 兵 (bing) is such a unique one. Still got what other names? “兵”淇淋 (ice cream) ah? I thought it was a pretty lame joke but he had this weird look on his face. (Read on to find out later!) 😛

_MG_3934

A testing shot but I thought his facial expression was pretty funny. Hahaha XD

_MG_3835-1

Couldn’t make out what this was. I thought it resembled something I saw at Haw Par Villa when I was a little girl. Then BB Chew explained that this showed the process of constructing the 兵马俑 (terracotta warriors). Ahhhh.. At this point, I was a little puzzled but was not interested enough to query further.

_MG_3838-1

Cute miniatures of…. well, I don’t know.

_MG_3849-1

Hi there horsies! I wish you could gimme a ride. Mehhhhhhh..

_MG_3850-1

Warrior outfit? I dare Lady Gaga to wear this!!

_MG_3871-1

Finally, BB Chew exclaimed.. “There! That’s the 兵马俑!”
I was like “HUH? Which one?! Who?!”
“What who? This whole thing la!”
“HUH?! OMG I thought 兵马俑 is a person leh!”
-faints-

_MG_3873-1

Turns out that this is the 兵! (unless I’m wrong again!)

_MG_3911-1

..and this is the 马! (I’m 100% sure, guarantee plus chop stamp)

_MG_3867

Ummm what about the 俑? BB Chew did explain to me but I can’t remember.. See what I told you about failing history? :(

_MG_3880-1

Haha cute little girl and her equally cute pose.

_MG_3881-1

_MG_3917-1

At least I made an effort to do some homework after this trip! Apart from life-sized terracotta figures, later diggings revealed musicians, servants, acrobats and even animals! So cool right!

_MG_3941-1

But this is even cooler! I’m pretty sure she wasn’t buried together with Emperor Qin Shi Huang. Haha!

_MG_3942-1

The red laptop so boomz. Ok this word is pretty outdated already. Anyway the first laptop that I thought of was Sony Vaio!

_MG_3938

Yup our little mystery was solved! BB Chew finally got my lame joke about the “兵”淇淋 and I also knew why he initially had a straight face. We both had a good laugh after that! 😀 To think that I have actually been to so many parts of China -.- Anyway, this exhibition is a temporary one and will be here till 16 October 2011. Standard admission charges apply. Make a date with your loved ones and have fun! :)
