Lifestyle personality and blogger, Jenni Epperson shares her favourite moments from her family vacation in Singapore through the eyes of her son, Dylan.
When it comes to family bonding, creating memories and having fun are on top of the Eppersons’ list and this includes traveling. This trip to Singapore was my first time with just my boys, Tom (husband) and Dylan (son), and it was important that they got to see, taste and experience the City in a Garden. It didn’t matter if our schedule was jam-packed—eating in new restaurants, visiting museums, or discovering the new places; we were together, having fun, and dare I use a couple of the most over-used terms in parenting today?—bonding with some good, old-fashioned quality time.
The Trick Eye Museum in Singapore is a 3D optical illusion art exhibit, where you can take crazy photos using the art technique ‘Trompe-l’oeil’ (Trick of the Eye) to create optical illusions, making flat paintings appear 3D! It’s a museum where the rules such as “no touching” or “no photography” do not exist. In fact, visitors are encouraged to interact with the paintings and to take as many photos as they want. How amazing is that? It is also a place where adults and kids can make their dream come true no matter how wild they are.
The Singapore Zoo is an award-winning wildlife park, where animals can roam freely in their natural habitats. We also got to experience the Jungle Breakfast with Wildlife at Ah Meng Restaurant, a yummy western-style, al fresco breakfast in the good company of our jungle friends.
We were excited to explore ArtScience Museum and we had so much fun in our visit to Future World, its new permanent exhibition! This place has 16 spectacular art installations housed in a fully immersive 1500-square-metre digital universe and brought to life in real-time through visitor presence and participation. Dylan enjoyed this interactive world, which responds to behaviour, and changes according to your creative input.
