Exploring Nido Fortified's Science Discovery Center

My brother and I weren't supposed to go to Nido Fortified's Science Discovery Center in Mall of Asia. But since we were already in the area (coming from PAL's Rally to Bali event last Saturday), we opted to meet with my cousins. My niece and nephews also came along so that was actually more fun for everyone.

Anyway, my Kuya treated all of us to free passes (tickets were sold at Php330 for adults and Php300 for kids). We were about 11 people who came into the center. Now, our tickets also came with free popcorn and a Milo drink, plus two Planetarium shows -- one was about the universe, and the other was the One World One Sky: Big Bird‘s Adventure. 

YES! A short travel within the solar system for only Php330! How cool is that?!

Anyhow, since we came in a bit late in the afternoon, we opted to start our tour by watching the Planetarium presentations. The first projected show was actually more interesting compared to Big Bird's adventure. But the latter was a more obvious hit for the kids since they enjoyed interacting with 'Elmo' and "Big Bird' all throughout the show.


After the Planetarium, we checked out the Grossology and Smart Media City -- both of which can be accessed on the first floor.

A 5-day exploration around the Merlion City, Singapore

January 07, 2011 27
[Trip from September 2008] 

It was F1 season in Singapore back when my Rubel and I vacationed in September 2008. We were actually bummed about being a week early from the actual date of the event. But the good part of it was that we got to see firsthand the actual tracks and sidelines. Anyway, it was my first time to visit Singapore, and I must say that being in this country was sight for sore eyes! Seeing the Merlion was a superb treat for a tourist like me. And to start off, let me show you what we did in our first day in the Merlion City 

DAY 1 

ARRIVAL @ SG’S BUDGET TERMINAL 

Singapore’s Budget terminal was literally just like a receiving area. It seemed like it was smaller than NAIA Terminal 1. Nonetheless, the terminal maintained a good flow and process. And as we got our passport’s stamped, we immediately rolled our trolleys outside the airport.
