Human Body Experience at Singapore Science Center

Be prepared to be shrunk down the the size of a little lab rat as you venture into Human Body Experience Exhibition at the Singapore Science Center.

The interactive journey starts when you climb into the mouth and slide down the throat of the larger-than-life exhibit. As you arrive at the the vocal cords, push those walls to play with sounds in the voice box. Venture further and watch lungs inflate and deflate in the respiratory section. Then carefully navigate through a labyrinth of veins. Step into the amazing cardiovascular system, as you hear the thudding of the heart and have a ball of a time playing with giant bouncing blood cells. Followed by a of couple of vital organs, such as the Kidney, Liver, Pancreas and Spleen. Then try to keep your balance as you wobble across the floor of the churning stomach. And finally get digested through the intestines and exit the exhibition from you-know-where.

5 simple tips to enjoying i Light Marina Bay 2014 with kids.

1. Plan your routes way in advance.
Check out the Map. It would be absolutely too adventurous (reads: Suicidal) to cover the whole i Light Marina Bay 2014 exhibition with KIDS in a day. My suggestion is to take either route A or route B and STICK to the route. You could mouse over the yellow dots on the website, have a brief idea of each exhibits, then decide on which route to take. Do also check out the FREE GUIDED TOURS which is available every Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Advance booking is required, please check website for more details.

2. Bring kick scooter, skateboards or anything with wheels!
With tiny little feet, it is hard for kids to keep up. So anything that comes with wheels that makes them go FASTER than their parents excites them. Parents with young child, toddlers and baby, bring the stroller or a baby carrier.

3. Allow them to INTERACT with the art installation.
More than half of the exhibits at i Light Marina Bay 2014 are interactive. Allow your child the FREEDOM to TOUCH.

4. Hand them the camera.
It’s strange, but it is true. The child feels empowered to be handed the camera. Kids feel that their perspective is important when given such responsibility. It sustains their interest and keeps them going.

5. Take the Boat Ride.
Every kid loves a boat ride! Get a unique perspective of the key light art installations while you sail through Marina Bay. Tickets are sold from Marina Bay City Gallery Pier at $12/pax. Boat ride is only available every Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Please check website for more details.

HAVE FUN!

Far East Organization Children’s Garden | Gardens by the Bay

We were impressed during our first visit to Gardens by the Bay last year.
And this time round we were dazzled beyond words.

Gardens by the Bay is easily accessible by BayFront MRT Station. (Circle Line)

Far East Organization Children’s Garden is the latest addition to Gardens by the Bay list of impressive attractions. The one-hectare garden caters to kids from 1 to 12 years of age. Combining both nature and adventure Far East Organization Children’s Garden is nature’s best playground in this cosmopolitan city.
Singapore Mom Blogger Irene Soh reviews Far East Organization Children's Garden.

Far East Organization Children’s Garden is located near the cloud forest. That is roughly about 10 mins walk from the main entrance.

We didn’t felt like walking under the scotching hot sun for the day. So we were pleased to know that there is a shuttle service (SGD$2) that brings us to the doorstep of the Cool Conservatories which is a stone throw away from the Far East Organization Children’s Garden. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. They readily load James with his buggy up to the back of the shuttle service.

The Gentle Fish Fountain which is suitable for kids from 1 to 5 years old features an interactive landscape of water tunnels and fish sculptures where toddlers can clamber on the sculpted backs and dodge a series of water jets.

When you hear James loudly squealing with joy, you know he had FUN!
Singapore Mom Blogger Irene Soh reviews Far East Organization Children's Garden

Watching water “dance” at the water Play area soothes my soul. This area is mean for older kids from 6 to 12 years old. James was intimidated by the sudden streams of water jets and prefers to sick to the Fish Fountain. But, I am sure Hiroshi and Sophia would have loved it. The Water Play is linked to sensors which detect the movement of children to create a corresponding sequence of water effects.

The chairs were really comfortable too!

The Rainforest Tree Houses are located within a dense canopy of trees, the two tree houses reach heights of 4 metres and 7.5 metres respectively, spanning a 130 metre-long forest trail. 
Singapore Mom Blogger Irene Soh reviews Far East Organization Children's Garden.

The Adventure Trail is set to Thrill older kids as they navigate through the garden through a series of obstacle course.
Singapore Mom Blogger Irene Soh reviews Far East Organization Children's Garden.

I can’t wait to bring the older kids during the March holidays. I am sure they will be equally as excited about this awesome playground!

This is a Fun for Free activity.
(NO ADMISSION CHARGES)
It is open daily from 9am to 9pm.
But do take note that the Far East Organization Children’s Garden is closed for maintenance every Monday, or the next working day if a public holiday falls on the Monday of that week.

Since it was our very first time watching Chingay, we didn’t really know what to expect from it. But, as we sat in our seats, the kids got excited as they rummage through their goody bags.

One of the many reasons Chingay 2014 is so unique is because it has incorporated community efforts of many levels. Take for instance, Project Batik 360; Paint With ONE Heart has seen different communities coming together through Batik painting. The intricate 360 meter Batik Fabric that will flow through the entire Parade route accompanied by colourful multi-cultural performers.

Another community project for Chingay 2014, Knit with One Heart has seen different communities coming together and bonding through knitting. These knitted art pieces exemplifies a closely-knitted Singapore.

Spectacular Grand Finale! Featuring 720 meters of colourful Community-knitted Tapestries from Project Knit with One Heart. The theme song for the finale; 网织同心” is an Original Song composed by renown local music talent Mr Lee Si Song. I love how the song is able to intertwine 4 different languages in 1 song. Uniquely Singapore!
