Dinos Alive! @ Pusat Sains Negara (Part II)

We reached National Science Centre around 11am last Tuesday after having breakfast at McD SS2.  A friendly staff approached us at the counter and explained to me the activities of the day while handing me the flyer.  He further asked if I was interested to register my boy for their free workshops.  I of course said yes and promised to fill up the form before leaving.  As for the entry to the Dino exhibition, family package tickets at RM25 for 2 adults and 2 children are available while for single ticket, it's priced at RM10 for adults and RM5 for children. 

Upon walking into the atrium where two live sized moving but not walking dinosaurs were exhibited, my boy was taken aback by the sound emitted by the "dinasours" and refused to go any nearer for photo taking.  He was so unhappy when I insisted and thus the sour face and forceful smile.  LOL... 

Look at him in the photo.  LOL... The T-Rex was giving out a deafening roar when I snapped this photo.  He later told me it (the roar) almost scared him to death. (hak sei ngor) Wuakaka... 

Some dancing and singing animal figures displayed in front of the kids discovery place

The fossil sand pit was the place where my boy spent the most time there.  Boots are provided but neither of them fit my big baby's feet he ended up barefooted.  I don't recommend the provided boots though as the pair that my son tried on emitted "foot smells".  

"Animals" dancing to the music..

Some species of dinosaurs on exhibit

Yay! mommy.. I overcome the fear (of the eerie sound) of dinosaurs finally.  Look at the victory sign and smile. The Iguanadon (the one to the bottom left) danced to the beat of the music, funny and entertaining indeed. 

We watched a short dinosaur documentary movie before moving on to other activities.

My boy made several attempts to break his own records and his best record registered was
15.86 km/hr, slightly better than a cock. hehehe..

Making of Dino button badge

Conveying belt system, puzzle solving and pushing up

Plasma and balancing act

My boy playing the stringless harp and it produces music even without the string! Stringray and some fishes at the tunnel aquarium

Love the tropical fish and the touch pond.. I didn't realise there was one after so many visits till I saw a crowd and a gentleman gave a demo and encouraged me to do the same.  I felt so "geli" with those fishes nibbling on my fingers.  My boy was scared to try this.  Maybe next time.  He just needs time to overcome his fear of the unknown. :)

It was 2pm when we finally ended our tour.  Not forgetting the workshops, I registered my son for two different sessions before leaving and that simply means we will be there again next Tuesday and Thursday.   I only managed to register the boy for the remaining two available workshops though.

How much we wanted to hang around till the 2.30pm science show but our growling tummy wouldn't allow that.  There were stalls outside the back entrance of the centre selling burgers, oh, no.. not burgers again.. not a burger person myself and furthermore we just had it for breakfast this morning. :)

Wah... I thought Dino exhibition is all about bones and more bones. Little did I expect the dancing dino and other activities.

Ian's posing with the roaring dino is terribly cute - his forceful smile and fearful face. Haha... My kids ain't going any nearer to the dinos because they are afraid of all mascots - KFC Chicky, Genting Theme Park mascots, etc.
