OMY outing - S'pore Discovery Centre.

This is the 2nd time i got invitation from OMY to attend their outings! This time is "Exclusive Singapore Discovery Center's newest exhibitions and movie screenings".

The last time I went to the S'pore Discovery Center was... maybe in Primary school days?


Shawn and I got the invites, so we brought Rinn and Ryan along. Mrt-ed all the way to Boon Lay and bus-ed to SDC. We were late.

Anyway, we were looking forward to lunch because we were super hungry! Lunch was provided, and i was expecting those "Economical Rice" packs, but when we entered the "Loyalty" classroom, Guess what greeted us? (other than humans)

Pizzas,Pizzas and more Pizzas! Btw, i did not eat much, thanks to the stupid strepsils that i ate on the way to SDC, and it made my mouth numb :(

After eating, we began on our tour! Before that, let me introduce the friendly guide, *Drum Roll*

Yup, that's Jenifer (or jennifer) who accompanied us throughout the whole trip, explaining to us the interesting things in the Singapore Discovery Centre. She had to carry this heavy speaker everywhere she go.Jenifer, if you are reading this, THANK YOU!

The above collage basically summarize what we did that day. Exhibitions, exhibitions and More exhibitions. Some of them are really cool! Like the "bomb simulator" where we get to experience a bomb blast. Visiting the famous "little George", etc.

We also get to participate in some quiz show! Like those TV quiz show, where we look at the video and press either A or B button on the panel infront of us.

After which,

X-factor! The X-factor exhibition showcase how we Live, Work and Play in Singapore in the next 10 to 15 years via interactive and experiential ways. Urban Cool-ness! (Btw, realised that i photoshop-ed myself into the pic above?)

After all those walking, it's time for some relaxing!

3D Movie! The SDC theatre has a five-storey high screen and excellent sound systems, this 344-seater world-class theatre offers a truly cinematic and realistic sensory experience.

The show we watched was "Fly me to the moon", which is about three young flies set off on a courageous mission to become the first insects on the Moon by hitching a ride on the historic Apollo 11 space flight.

Super nice! I feel that i can almost feel the space rocket with my 3d glasses on. The things are popping out of the screen! After which, we watch the next show "Light before Christmas", a animation show. At the end, they show how they made the animation film, which is like super tedious.

After the movie, we hopped onto the SAFTI bus and took a tour around the SAFTI Military Institute.It brought us around the 88-hectare training ground for officers from Army, Navy and Air force. Then alighting at the Army museum of singapore.

Before ending the day at Singapore Discovery Centre, the lucky 20 of us get to experience the 4D simulator which is only opened to public on 1st of December!

Lastly,a BIG Thank you OMY for this wonderful experience! I look forward to more events (:
