Visiting Pusat Sains Negara – The National Science Center, Kuala Lumpur

When I say it has been ages since I last visited Pusat Sains Negara, aka the National Science Centre, I meant AGES. Like 20 years. So I think I can be forgiven for having very fuzzy memories of the place lol. Perched on top of a hill in Bukit Kiara, Kuala Lumpur, the National Science Centre opened its doors in 1996, covering two levels of exhibition space. … Continue reading Visiting Pusat Sains Negara – The National Science Center, Kuala Lumpur

Travelogue Manila: Science And Discovery @ Mind Museum, Bonifacio Global City

Malaysians aren’t big on museums. I can count the number of museums/discovery centres that we have in KL. The best and most well kept is probably the Islamic Arts Museum, followed by the National Museum…and that’s about it. The Planetarium is tiny, and Petrosains still has the same exhibits it had when it opened in 1999 lol. Maybe that’s why all the museums are empty … Continue reading Travelogue Manila: Science And Discovery @ Mind Museum, Bonifacio Global City

Playing God – Where do we Draw the Line?

SO I recently read in the news about this English couple who had their late pet boxer cloned for $100,000. The lab created two cloned puppies from the dog’s DNA successfully. Said couple is estatic and has been posting on social media on the whole experience. Ironically, they named it ‘Shadow’. I am not a religious person, but even I think that there is a … Continue reading Playing God – Where do we Draw the Line?

Stars and Space at the National Planetarium, KL

I was feeling random and restless over the weekend, so I thought of going out even though the haze was pretty bad. Initially, the plan was to head to the National Science Center in Bukit Kiara, but upon getting there the guard told me it was closed (!!) until 2016 -_-“. Well, that’s a bummer… there was no notice online since the website is ‘under … Continue reading Stars and Space at the National Planetarium, KL

The Exploratorium, San Francisco

WE’RE almost at the end of our San Francisco trip! One of our last stops in the city was the Exploratorium, a massive science and discovery centre located at Piers 15 and 17, Embacadero. A modern, blockish-looking building, the centre was first opened in the 1960s and was relocated to its new place in 2013. We actually got here late and had to rush through … Continue reading The Exploratorium, San Francisco

California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco

To start off the day, here’s a fluffy fat cat. 🙂 His name is Apu Jukkai. Look at that majestic white beard and white socks awww. So here we are again in San Francisco! I was glad that we got to visit and take a complete picture of the Golden Gate Bridge the day before, because on our second day, most of the structure disappeared … Continue reading California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco

The Space Shuttle: Endeavour @ California Science Center, LA

Hello! Picking off where we left off after a fun-filled visit to the nearby LA County Museum of Natural History , we walked a short distance to a futuristic-looking building shaped like a bell curve – the California Science Centre.  Located within the large grounds of LA’s Exposition Park, the science centre is directly opposite a stadium. There was an event going on there because we saw many … Continue reading The Space Shuttle: Endeavour @ California Science Center, LA
