It's really true that people said, be careful of what you wished for.. for it may really come true!
When i was in Primary school, my favorite excursion venue is the Singapore Science Centre! I remembered always asking my form teacher when are we going to the Science Centre again or why are we not going to the Science Centre but the zoo (or etc)? There was once, when the excursion is over and while waiting for boarding the bus to return back to school, i looked opposite to the homes opposite the Science Centre and wondered "Wow!! They are so fortunate to be staying directly opposite! I wished i am staying there so i can come to the Science Centre every day!"
The wish did came true, close to 20 years later! I got married to a handsome young man whom is staying directly opposite the Science Centre! When we were dating, the Science Centre was also one of places that we been to! Hee, can you tell what a "Science Frenzy" i am?
When KD is close to two years old, we applied for the "Science Explorer" Family membership for unlimited admission to the Science Centre. The main reason was because when we drove past, KD will be very excited when he sees the Waterworks. So we thought, why not? We can bring him on weekends to play with water!

KD ended up asking us on every weekends, if he can go play with Water at the Science Centre! Images below are of KD when he was two years old and playing at the Waterworks.
There were even mini "buggies" available for little children that we could borrowed for free then. KD loves to sit inside while we tour the other parts of the science centre to see its other exhibits. Now, however, these buggies are for rental at SGD4 for science centre member and i couldn't remember the amount for public.
A year later, when our membership is due for renewal and KD was still constantly asking "Can we go Science Centre?". Thus i upgraded to the Cosmic Adventurer instead. It only costs SGD143 a year for 2 Adult and up to 3 Children, for UNLIMITED FREE admission to the Science Centre and UNLIMITED FREE 40 mins IMAX movies.

As part of my SAHM days, KD will wake up and ask if we can go to the Science Centre today?? -_-"" I try my best to limit him and visit only once a week but there are times we came twice or thrice, depending on the shows timing and weather. I break apart the activities we can do there on separate days. That explains why KD is so familiar with the place, he can be a tour guide now, telling you exactly what you can do at the Science Centre and what movies are on. :)
His favorite will be the Fire Tornado Demonstration which happens daily at 3pm and the Tesla Coil Demonstration that happens daily at 12pm and 4pm. Other than that, he loves to explore the other exhibits too! I think he got the interests from me or it's in part of his genes!
