More National Mew-Zee-Yerm!

The sun and rain thwarted our zoo plans ... Once again, the National Museum to the rescue!!!
Aided by the know-it-all, we took the strange walk across the grass strip that used to be a road from SMU. I couldn't help but took a look to the left, to the left to make sure we weren't going to be run down by phantom cars.
We bought half price tickets ($5 and $2.50 only!), found our way into the history gallery and were equipped with what Shea called a "contraption" that guided us through the displays and rooms. It was amazing. (I have created a suaku
label for the simplest things that's been around that astound me ... and make me feel suaku
.) In fact, it made up for Shea's initial disappointment when she found out that her favourite magnet wall
has been replaced by prototype furniture.Side discussion: Are "leave temporary tattoo on user's butt/arms" and "disregard comfort"
the criteria for winning local furniture design competitions? It's always some holey furniture that looks exceedingly uncomfortable to sit on unless your butt was 120cm wide and rock hard like an aluminium fridge door - otherwise, the chances of getting a wee piece of flesh caught in the crevices is almost as high as catching rainwater with your upturned mouth in a monsoon.
We spent a scanty two hour at the museum before nature came growling through Shea's tum tum. Sigh ... so off we went for more junk food to call it a day.
And for reminiscing sake, here's mini Shea at more museums
... more than 2 years ago. Sigh ... how children grow hor?
