National Science Centre, the 'Big Ball Ball'

The objective of National Science Centre is 'To increase public awareness, appreciation, interest and understanding of Science and Technology'

Our day tour to the centre was a fun educational visit. Here it goes...

Woke up early in the morning at 7.15am, Sean came knocking on my door, "Good morning mummy (followed with a sweet kiss). Mummy, morning already! Can we go to the Big Ball Ball ?"

Sean has been repeating this question of Big Ball Ball for the past two weeks. He saw this huge, green dome shaped building two weeks ago when we dropped by at Bukit Kiara. It was 4.10pm then, and the National Science Centre will be closing at 5pm. Nevertheless, with free entry, we had a quick tour to the galleries and parks. I guess it was the Aquaculture Pond (available in the park) that Sean has been dreaming of., day and night : )

It was a scientific journey! Throughout our journey of the Galleries, Ern Tong and Sean were curious and excited with many hands-on interactive science exhibits. Our journey started by walking through an overhead aquarium. Along the way we passed through the Environmental Odyssey, Children Exploration Center, and so on.

At noon, we had our lunch at the cafeteria. To our disappointment, they offer very limited food choices, i.e., 'nasi ayam' and 'kuih udang', hahahaaaa! Luckily, the taste was ok.

After lunch, we started our journey of Science Educational Park. We visited the rabbit farm, bird park, the mini ostrich farm and many other science gardens. As expected, the aquaculture pond has made this journey a most memorable one!
