SC Alien Lantern 1

Our Parenting World, Gor Gor and Di Di have been looking forward to visit this place ever since they knew that it is having its first-ever lantern carnival.

We are going to see “aliens”! How exciting!

Can you guess where is it?

It’s Science Centre Singapore (SCS)! It is hosting the first-ever lantern carnival by the lake just besides Snow City. 

Science Centre Singapore is one of the boys’ favourite places to visit. As we are members, the boys are often at the Science Centre. Gor Gor now at Primary 3 is very interested in Science and will often visit Science Centre to satisfy his curiosity and eagerness to learn more.
