[ Review + Giveaway ] Alive Museum Singapore

During the June holidays, the folks from Alive Museum Singapore were nice to invite us over for some fun! Opened in 014, Alive Museum Sg is the world's best 4D museum. Located in the heart of the city and is conveniently accessed to by public transport.

If you have drama-mama traits, love to take weird and funny pictures, this is a place not to be missed! I even brought my dad along and surprisingly, he gamely took the pictures along with me with those expressions of his which I do not get to see often.


If I could get nice shots of everybody, it is definitely a bonus. Now that Xav is 8, it can still be pretty challenging to get him to look at the lens but most of the time, I could get decent shots of him. But Missy Vera is a bigger challenge, it depends very much on her mood to stay put on the spot, look at my lens and give me her sweetest smile. You might be hearing a crazy woman calling out repeatedly somewhere around you like a broken recorder "Vera, Vera ! Look at the lens!


Alive Museum Singapore is made up of 3D art, Digital Art, Object Art. I have read in some other blogs and realised that the museum had new additions added in for more photo opportunities!


The big baby!


My mer-boy !

Certain areas, I find it pretty challenging to take pictures as I was confused by the floor indicators. Wondering if its just me facing this issue.


Trying to balance up the muscles for both arms.




Amongst the Object art, I love this picture below much! It was like finally, I managed to catch up with the kids and have the photo taken. Vera was cranky right from the start. My guess was she could not stand being inside a room (especially so when comes to some photo spots which were not as brightly lited) and not to mention that she would stay put in her pose to allow me to capture a picture of her. No way she would entertain me this way. Oh well, that's my missy.



I thought that the headless figurine was pretty scary but found it hilarious to see my head in the washing machine.





Young @ Heart Zone (New addition)


Xav's in a magazine

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE Zone (New addition)

Another favourite shot of us. This is really rare to have all in the picture again. Love the equation: Daddy + Mummy = Xav korokor and Cranky Vera who was trying to cry her way out.




This station below was most well like by Xav and Vera,



even my dad went on it !



Uniquely Singapore Zone

Some of the Singapore icons you could have seen before.

[Media Invite] The City @ I12 Katong

You read about my experience to Kidzania Singapore ? Personally I feel that it is more suitable for pre-schooler and above and they will appreciate it more.  So what about the younger children?

The City may be familiar to some mums or it might sounds like a new place for new mums with young toddlers. If you have heard about The City @ Liang Court, families staying in the East of Singapore can now rejoice over the opening of a spanking new outlet @ I12 Katong ! The barely one month old outlet drew a pretty good crowd when I visited!


For young toddlers or children below 5 who love to pretend play, I would think The City would be a better option to start them off with as the little ones do not need to stay in queue. The pretend play does not limit the children to just stay in that area.

Cashiers, Grocer, Doctors, Nurses, Policeman and even Super Heroes with the outfits made available at different stations without having to bear with the long queue!


Here's one cool Captain America checking out the supermarket! 



Spotted him at the nearby café drooling over the bakes!


Simply dress up in your favourite Superheroes or characters!



This area allows the children to build with gigantic, colourful foam blocks !



For a change of role, he decided to be a police officer next and roamed around on his "car". 

Mr Policeman on patrol !

Meanwhile for being someone who loves to pretend play, The City is great for the coming 3 year old Vera! I brought her into the clinic area. But she was not interested to treat the dolls and made her escape to the streets.


Caught her still in doctor's coat with an orange balloon instead.


Yes, she saw food and transform herself into a cook, learning some life skills on serving, skewing "food" chunks into the wooden skewers to heating up a croissant in a microwave. My little cook here could be probably be more concern and happier if the croissant could be eaten!

Ready to serve !

My happy server

At times, she preferred to be a customer, sat down and "savour" her food. By the way, she is a food lover in reality.


Supermarket was her other favourite station. You could spot vegetable that looked so real for the little shoppers to shop.


Vera got to see how a durian looked like !


Even the Superheros did their grocery shopping and was telling each other the secret of staying fit and healthy is to eat more bananas perhaps? =p


She went along to shop her favourite bananas and carted them into cute, child-size shopping trolley.


One thing I like about the supermarket section was, they used recycled packaging to display on the shelves. I feel that it was great to for the children to associate with real life items.


Vera was at a point carting cartons of milk into her trolley,

Vera, the happy shopper  !

then I guessed she changed her mind and I observed her to be putting them back to the same category instead of chucking them onto other shelves.


There was a Post Office but I hardly see kids in that space. Perhaps the stamps and envelops could be re-stationed over there? Or have someone to explain to them the task of a postman would be great.


Parents can rest at the resting area while the kids are at play.

The City, let the kids' imagination run and play! There is no restriction on how they should play! A great place for the parents and kids' to bond over role playing!


Thank you The City @ I12 Katong for having us. We had a blast until both Xav and Vera were so reluctant to leave the place! We will be back !
