Island Trip (Day 6)

Day 6 (Tue)
In the morning, KJ and I went to Jurong East MRT/bus station to give out the flyers. There were more Malays in that area and many of them were willing to take it. After that we went to the Singapore Science Centre which was only a 10 minutes walk from the station.
First we went to the IMAX Omni-Theatre (The 1st in South East Asia) to watch "Fighter Pilot: Operation Red Flag" which lasted for 45 minutes. And there were only two of us inside.

The Omni-Theatre, part of the Singapore Science Centre, is a specially designed
theatre equipped with state-of-the-art IMAX dome technology. It is Singapore's
only dome-shaped, 5-storey high theatre with a capacity of 276 seats.
Then we went for the Morphis Movie Ride which costs S$4. It was a simulator coaster ride which lasted for about 5 minutes only. Just a so so ride.

Next we headed to the Science Exhibition, and then my favourite part of the place -- The Art of Star Wars Exhibition. It was an amazing exhibition. We got to look behind the scenes in the making of the Star Wars movies. There were life-sized models, sets, costumes, weapons and props used in the actual filming of the movie.
Models and costumes

We also get to see the life-sized items that were used in Star Wars Episode III - The Revenge of the Sith, such as:
The surgical table of Darth Vader
The birthing table of Padme Amidala
Palpatine's Chair
There was also a section called Jedi Gym where you can play with the "lightsaber" and learn to use your mind to move an object. Pretty cool!
For those Star Wars die hard fans, you will not want to miss out this oppurtunity as the exhibition will end at 3rd April 2006. However I find that the price is a little too expensive, S$18.

We left the Science Center at 4 something and we for a light meal in Jurong Shopping Mall. Then we distributed the flyers at the same place we were in the morning.
After that we took bus to Bukit Timah Community Club at 7.30pm. KJ's uncle was giving a Cha Cha dancing lesson so we joined! Haha. Learning how to dance is not easy as you thought. Anyway we had a great cha cha time.

Then at 8.30pm we hurried to Queenstown Community Club to meet KJ's aunt there. She was giving out Salsa dancing lesson. However we didn't join because it was an intermediate class already. So we just sat and looked at the people dancing and spinning around.

The class ended at 9.30pm so KJ, his aunt and I went for dinner before going home nearby.
