4 July was a school holiday and since I was feeling generous I took leave and brought the twins to kidzania Singapore. They had been looking forward to it since their visit to the kidzania in bangkok.
Excited boys waiting for the bus to take them to harbourfront.
Admiring my 300¥ bracelets on the bus
Got a shock when we reached kidzania. There was one single queue for everybody. Regardless of whether you are a walk-in customer or have already purchased your tickets online. So even though we already purchased our tickets we had to queue for an hour to get in. What a waste of time!
First activity – convenience store.
This was our first activity because it was near the entrance and the queue was relatively short as compared to the popular ones (fireman, policeman, pilot etc).
Junpig doing his dream job again. His joy is genuine
Boys practically dancing with joy after collecting their first salary of the day!
Second activity – board the tour bus!
This was a no-waiting activity. The tour bus was actually waiting for more participants before it can move off!
Third activity – bak kwa
Boys looking pretty legit with the cap
In full concentration
Happy to receive the generous salary.. hee hee..
Fourth activity – learning lab
We persevered with our strategy to join the shortest queue. So the next one was to enrol them in some learning activity. The module they took was about budgeting and stuff.
While waiting for them I couldn’t help but oooh and a aah over these cute little cleaners washing the windows outside
Fifth activity – bank vault
We chose this activity because it’s one of the jobs that gave us higher salary now that we owned a “university degree”
Boys looking very lost.
Sixth activity – peranakan museum
Only junpig participated because mupig was not keen on the extra earnings.. he wanted to make burgers..
Seventh activity – burger making
Mupig was very excited after he made his burger. He said “I made the best burger in the universe!”
Junpig joined the queue when mupig was feasting on his burger. After junpig completed his activity I asked if he made the best burger in the universe and he replied humbly “no lah.. mine is just the best in kidzania lah.. ”
One wefie before we left sentosa.. notice someone’s sad face
Overall I am not keen to go back to kidzania Singapore. It is expensive, feels small (compared to bangkok), and is too crowded.
If you die die have to bring your kids there, I would advise bringing along your own water, bread or some snacks because the queues at food outlets can get crazy during mealtimes. Also, queue for the food activities like soup, pizza, burger during off-peak hours like 11am and 3pm.
