Earth Science Exhibition to handle curious kids
If your curious kid asked questions like how the Earth was formed, or you are new to HK and wonders what is typhoon or the hexagonal rock columns in the Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark - do come check out the Earth Science Gallery at 1/F Exhibition Hall, Hong Kong Science Museum.
Here it illustrates the answer in an interactive and more interesting way than just reading from books or Wikipedia.
Not only is the exhibition free of charge, the museum offers free workshop about Earth Science.
The gallery offers learning through play experience, which complex and abstract concepts are demonstrated. For example plate tectonics, climate change, typhoons (especially if there are no typhoons in your home country) and different types of beautiful minerals.

A Museum filled with historical telephones
Kuala Lumpur has this free musuem that you can visit for bother your family and friends and what's most important its free even for foreigners!
The telephone museum located at Jalan Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur has a history of phones that date back even before the 1900s. It even features exhibits where it dates back to the stone ages and explains on how the people use to relay messages and communications thru birds or even written messages on stones.
Down the exhibits, it will slowly evolve in time and shows you how communications have change from messengers to switchboards to a call centre that relays call with actually people manually doing it to our old Dail up phones and such!
It's an interesting exhibitions especially to bring kids to educate them about the past. To see how technology has evolved and even how our phones has become smaller and faster thru the years of research and development.

Museum of Climate Change (MoCC)
Located on the Chinese University Campus, the Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change is sure to be one of our surprisingly good and worthwhile places to be. Established to raise public awareness of the impact of global warming, hence climate changes. It is divided into four sections: Polar Gallery, Remote Sensing and Environmental monitoring, research and innovation, green gallery.
I couldn’t decide which section are kids favourite because they spent equally long at each. The collections at Polar Gallery shows the effects of global warming and climate change resulting ice melting at the poles, where life of polar bears are on the line.
The remote sensing and environment monitoring definitely further explain and strengthen the ideas through videos and photos, along with some interactive multimedia presentations of different environmental and climate information. Kids were impressed with the application of geographic information in how the Earth is changing over years.
Research and innovation section probably the least attractive one for my kids. And I don’t blame them because it’s sure not something their age ( a 5.5yo and 7yo) would understand. I tried explaining but there’s just too specific and too much for kids to understand the research developments and technology advances in these field.
The last section, which is the green gallery, push hard on the idea “environmental efforts require community’s support”. With multimedia interactive exhibits and games, it promotes and aims to have the community get involved in waste reduction, sustainable and live a greener lifestyle.
Kids think: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Mom think: ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

Growing with technology In Singapore
National Museum Of Singapore has several exhibition on showcase. One pop up showcase which is also very popular with parents and kids is the showcase of technology changes in our lives.
Many of us who are born in 1970s-1990s finds this showcase a very memorable one. It shows where how life was simple when it comes to the barber, or using the uncoloured computer, phone and tvs. The very simple yet popular commercial on TV screens with its familiar soundtracks. Also the showcase also exhibits what Singapore used to have but its now not seen anymore. Like the spinning dail up payphone, or the kind of cosy coffeehouse, the kind of houses where our grandparents used to stay in, or even the kind of cameras we use to have and how it was traditional developed.
This exhibits allows our kids born in the recent generation to understand how simple life was before technology came in. A very much historic cultural learning experience.

Historical Walk Of Singapore
National Museum Of Singapore located at 1 St Andrew's Road(near dhoby ghuat) is show casing a permanent exhibition of the past in Singapore.
The exhibition tells you a story of how Singapore was even before the war in 1942.

There is so much to do here. Give yourself approximately 2hours as there are several exhibition in the area both for adults and for kids. And as a bonus, Singaporeans who have their identification of a Singaporean nationality have free entrance! There is so much things to explore and learn here, definitely worth a trip down!

Chongqing- Fengdu ghost city
You can get to Fengdu by taking the train from CQ (About 30mins or so).
I strongly recommend you to hire a private guide.
You will learn very interesting things about the history of the “ghost” city and all its different temples and gods.
You also learn that when you visit Fengdu, you have 3 tests that will determine wether you are good or bad:
1st test: The bridge.
2nd test: The gate of hell.
3rd test: “Fly” to the tower.
At the end of your visit, you will meet the God of the underworld who is the ultimate judge.
Quite interesting but you definitely need a guide. There are some explanations written in English but not much.
I actually was very inspired by a calligraphic art located next to a temple. (see picture)
I’ve been thinking about getting my first tattoo for a while and decided to go with it.
It uses 4 different Chinese characters (唯 善 呈 和).
The meaning is: “Goodness" is the source of "harmony", and "harmony" is the state of "kindness".
In other words, only kindness will make the world beautiful. ❤️

Shanghai - Madame Tussauds
Shanghai is hands down one of my favorite cities in China. There are so many things to see and this wax museum was pretty cool!
Everything was in both Chinese and English which was very nice.
I didn’t know most Chinese celebrities so it was also interesting to learn about them!
It is definitely quite expensive (190¥).
The tour takes about an hour but it is quite fun!
There’s the Van Gogh art gallery near by so I’d recommend you do visit both galleries. 😊

My personal favorite was the calligraphy exhibition.
Food & Restaurants - There are places where you can buy drinks and snacks.

Enjoy your visit! ☺️

Amphibians or Reptiles ?
Do you know how to differentiate amphibians and reptiles? Well, we learnt that (yes, even as adult, I learnt with my kids) at the amphibian classroom held by ki2zoo .
Kids absolutely love the class ! They asked to have a pet gecko or snake few months back, but of course, mommy is no fan of cold-blooded pet, so I rejected 😂 Hence, they’re looking forward to this class, being able to held and pet those (in their word) “cute and adorable” little geckos and baby snakes.
The 1hour 20mins class time include introducing, little quiz game for kids, picture and petting time.
Kids now know that the 🥚 eggs for reptiles and amphibians are different, reptile’s is with eggshells and the latter lay eggs in water and covered in gel ; 🦎 reptiles’ skins are dry, hard and scaly while 🐸 amphibians are smooth and highly porous : and amphibians needs water in their habitat their life cycles involves that.

Event: CESS 06 -2021
The 6th Conference on Earth System Sciences is held in Fuyue Hotel, Shanghai this July 7-10, 2021. This conference is organized by Tongji University, and brings together over 1,500 geoscientists. Although it’s main language is Chinese, organizers won’t limit international participants to join.
Considering pandemic, this is my first participation in this conference to present my work. During the conference, 10 ballrooms divided in two floors (2F & 3F), simultaneously available for continuous presentations. All rooms are extremely crowded (fortunately, Shanghai has no earthquake risk).
Additionally, in third floor there are a display of scientific magazines, scientific brands reaching to universities and laboratories, and the Posters Hall. Posters (in English and Chinese) are hold during the morning, and display in the afternoon. During the night are taken down, and next day new posters become available.
Hotel also counts with a huge restaurant area in 1sr floor, buffet style, open for all participants for lunch. Most participants will stay in the hotel during the Conference. This conference is held every year, and is amazing the amount of knowledge and research you learn in just a few days.
