Here is our first post about our new life in Canada…
Last Saturday we went to Fort Edmonton Park, the largest living history museum in Canada. This is the place to go if you are interested in Edmonton’s history from the fur trade era in the late 18th century until it became a metropolitan city in early 20th century.
Last weekend we went to Marina Bay area. With the new Downtown line mrt, it was much easier and faster to go there. Usually, the trip would take almost one hour by bus, but now it would take less than 20 minutes.
Carla really loves cats. She’s been wanting to adopt a cat for quite some time now, but unfortunately at the moment it’s just not possible. Fingers crossed, by the end of this year we’ll have a new house with enough space for a cat (and another cat, plus a dog, a couple of ducks, a couple of chickens and maybe a hamster…. said Carla and Renan).
Anyway, I came across this website, thecatmuseum.com.sg. I didn’t know there was a cat museum in Singapore!
So, last Saturday we decided to check out the place. We took the train to Bugis, and after a quick lunch at Bugis Junction mall, we walked to the Cat Museum which was just a quick stroll from the mall.
Just a quick but photo-heavy post….
A few days ago we went to Trick Eye in Sentosa. It’s a 3D art museum with around 80 optical illusion paintings and installations. Only come here if you like taking photos, otherwise it wouldn’t be worth it, especially since the tickets are quite expensive. $25 for adults and $20 for children from 4 to 12.
We had wanted to visit Play@NMS, a new children’s gallery at the National Museum of Singapore, for quite some time, but only two weeks ago we managed to go there.
National Museum of Singapore is located on Stamford Road, close to Orchard Road and Bras Basah Road. We took the 174 bus to go there.
Thursday, 11 September.
On our last day in Bristol, we went to visit Brunel’s ss Great Britain.
Brunel’s ss Great Britain was a passenger steamship that used to sail all over the world from 1845 to 1886. She is now a museum ship.
What a beautiful ship!
We bought our tickets at the counter. It cost £13.75 for Mamae, £7 for Carla, and free for Renan. The tickets permit unlimited return visits for one year, so I hope we can come back soon to visit the museum ship again… *wink!*
Day Four, Friday 5 September.
Museum of Science and Industry was not on our “where to go” list since I thought it would be too similar to the science centre here in Singapore which we had visited several times. However, since we wanted to go to the town hall, and the museum was somewhere between our hotel and the town hall, we decided to go there to have a look around.
I’m so glad we went there. The museum was fantastic! We ended up staying there the whole day….
