Sights and Sounds: Singapore 2012 – Part 1

We took the boys down to Singapore over Christmas. In between catching up with friends and family, we managed to see a few sights around Singapore that proved to be an excellent learning experience for the boys – well, Aristotle more so than Hercules. I really enjoyed our trip because this is how I’ve alwaysContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: Singapore 2012 – Part 1”

Home Schooling – Week 5: The Things We Did

Here’s what we did last week: Sorting coloured buttons (a Montessori activity I read about some Montessori books): We played with some old “new” toys that Gavin hadn’t seen in ages: We went to see the DinoTrek Exhibition in KLCC: We went to see the PetroSains Discovery Center: We finished painting our sun catchers: GavinContinue reading “Home Schooling – Week 5: The Things We Did”

Sights and Sounds: PetroSains Discovery Center

Here are the photos from our visit to the PetroSains Discovery Center… The tour begins with a short ride in a capsule: Gavin found it a little alarming at first and wanted to get out because we ascended into darkness, but after a while he found it pretty interesting. SM and M in the seatsContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: PetroSains Discovery Center”

Sights and Sounds: DinoTrek Exhibition in KLCC

On Tuesday, Gavin and I visited the DinoTrek exhibition at KLCC with SM and M.  We bought tickets to see the PetroSains Discovery Center and the DinoTrek exhibition but in hindsight, it might have been better to tackle each on separate days.  The PetroSains Discovery Center was a lot larger than I had anticipated, butContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: DinoTrek Exhibition in KLCC”

Sights and Sounds: The Bird Park

I took Gavin to visit the Bird Park on Wednesday with SM and M.  It was the first of our play-date cum home-school excursions together.  From the looks of it, the boys enjoyed themselves and we’re planning to schedule more activities. Entry into the bird park cost me RM15, while Gavin went in free ofContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: The Bird Park”

Sights and Sounds: Butterfly Park – Taman Rama Rama

I was planning to take Gavin to see the Dino Trek exhibition at KLCC only to discover that it was closed on Mondays.  The closest we got to the dinosaurs were the two exhibits they had on display at the entrance. It was the second time that we were attempting to view the dinosaur exhibitContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: Butterfly Park – Taman Rama Rama”

QoW: What are Some Great Places to Show a Toddler?

After our recent excursions to the Planetarium and Sunway Pyramid, I’ve been keen to start taking Gavin to see more sights around KL.  So far, this is the list I’ve come up with: National Science Center National Museum Bird Park Butterfly Park Hibiscus Garden Orchid Garden Petronas Science Discovery Center Sights and Sounds: KL –Continue reading “QoW: What are Some Great Places to Show a Toddler?”

Sights and Sounds: The Planetarium and KLCC Art Gallery

After our rather successful day out at Sunway Pyramid, I was inspired to take Gavin to see more things.  One of the subjects I have been trying to introduce Gavin to is Astronomy and the planets.  I bought this book and mobile and showed him the planets some time back. Not surprisingly, he wasn’t thatContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: The Planetarium and KLCC Art Gallery”

Sights and Sounds: Sunway Pyramid

On Tuesday, I had some errands to run in Subang Jaya, so I decided to make a trip to Sunway Pyramid, a shopping mall I almost never go to because it is so far away.  Also because I wasn’t sure if Gavin would handle such a long car ride (especially back in the days whenContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: Sunway Pyramid”
