Of Stamps & Spices @ Singapore Philatelic Museum

It was a weekend of "No-Work-Day" for me and the kids have finally finished their mid-term examinations. I decided to bring them out after weeks of mugging for their exams at home. The weather was unpredictable and I did not want to see their mood dampened by the bad weather (was originally planning to bring them for outdoor play). I decided to bring them to one of the museums in Singapore. Why not? It's fun, air-conditioned and free entrance some more.

The children get to learn about stamps...and more stamps from around the world.

Junior YS was getting a little bit bored *yawned*

Miniature of various postal boxes from around the world.

Interactive games on the screen to keep them busy.

Virtual "cooking" of different cuisines.

Learning about herbs & spices...

Who wants to drink kopi?

Wearing the very "fashionable" wooden clogs.

Picked up the antique telephone.
Harlow? Who are you?

Nowadays we hardly snail mails to friends & families anymore.

Tried to throw the horseshoe ring over the stick.

Look! Our faces appeared on the stamp.

There are 2 levels for you to explore slowly and if the time is not enough, you can always come back another day. By the way, entrance is free for Singaporean & PR.
June holiday is coming! It will be fun to bring your kids there to explore :)
