Science Centre Singapore’s Phobia Party & FunActivities.Sg


Have you been to the Phobia Party last month Science Centre? Thanks to FunActivities.Sg. I've a chance to visit Science Centre and get to enjoy the night by looking at the exhibition, playing the game station and enjoy delicious food and drinks.


Let's check out the Phobia Party in Science Centre 


PHOBIA PARTY - This is a place you can get to know the different types of phobias and to challenge yourself at their Fear Challenge Stations but its psychology or physiology. 

Before entering in, the staff will explain that you might have sweaty palms and if you are scared there is a door for you to exit named as 'chicken out'. It means timid. 


Fearing of not doing well in exams with the exhibit displaying study desks contain TV panels showing clips on how to overcome it. 


A conical room designed with swirling black and white pattern. As you walk, it will get smaller and smaller into the room. 


Children with nightmares fearing that their wardrobes contain many insects and spiders. 


Fearing of clowns 



Fearing of seating roller coaster ~

After enjoying the exhibit in the Science Centre, we then head out to ECO Garden to enjoy games and food organise by FunActivities.Sg.

FunActivities.Sg is an offshoot of DoXtreme Sports, much lighter on the intensity but heavier on the laughter and experience. With many collective experiences, they assisted many corporate organisations with many blazing experiences. We are given games and food vouchers to enjoy the night. Every won games will entitle you to tickets to exchange for toys/games for you to bring home. Elgena and I got ourselves a total of 5 different smiley cushions. Check out the below pictures to see what amazing games that we saw and played. 

Have you ever seen the Big Sized Uno Card? Funactivities cleverly uses the UNO games cards to turn into a larger size for clients to play matching games. We have to get a total of 6 identical twins cards in order to win (same colour and same numerical number). You will require luck to get the matching cards because there are 6 tries for you to flip the cards. This means that you cannot have any error if you want to get all the 6 identical twins right. 
Another bigger size darts games, but instead of using tarts, they provide us with a soccer ball for you to kick and aim the bullseye. 
This time is a smaller version of ring throwing. I've tried once and I feel that this game is difficult, I simply can't get the right technique. 



Overall, I really enjoyed myself spending almost 4 hours exploring and playing games and eating. There are many games choices such as basketball, hooking ducks, bouncy playground, throwing hooks and many more that are not shown in the pictures above.

Tan Yu (探鱼) @ Somerset 313


Tan Yu (探鱼) located at 313 Somerset specializes in many different types of grilled fish dishes. Together with my girlfriends we decided to proceed there for our lunch on Saturday and surprisingly there was no queue, we took our queue number and less than 10 minutes we were asked to enter the restaurant after ordering.


As you entered in, the design of the interior is very modern not like other Chinese restaurant. 

Oh ya, before I show you what we had ordered , below are the photos of the menu.


To be honest , when I looked at the menu , it was a little confusing so we approached the staff for help. We ordered their signature fish dishes (Chongqing Grilled Fish with Beancurd) and chose Limbo Fish. For side dishes , we order the Golden Combination ($10.90) which comprises of Potato, Crab sticks, Golden Mushrooms and Lotus Root as well as Fried Man tou with condensed milk. In additional, warm barley drink as well. 



Fried Man Tou not very oily and goes pretty well with condensed milk. Alternately, you can eat the man tou by dipping it on the soup of the grilled fish you ordered. 




Finally a while later, our Chongqing Grilled Fish with Beancurd arrived steaming hot. When I first looked at it, my first thought was spicy. Indeed , this Chongqing grilled lambo fish was spicy but more of a numb to me.  I just felt that my lip was applying red lipstick. The side ingredients as shown above was decent , you can't go wrong with the mala spicy sauce.  


In conclusion, I would probably go back to try other grilled fish and would recommend those who really enjoy spicy good. Their grilled fish is very fresh and juicy.

PayLah! Hawker Food Trail



Excited to try out the 'Scan to Pay' function using DBS Paylah so together with my husband we went to Maxwell Food Centre for our dinner. We are really excited because we can simply use our mobile phones to pay for our meals. Unfortunately, the cashless payment option in Maxwell Food Centre does not include all the stalls.


Before you start to try out, you have to top up (link from your POSB / DBS account) to your DBS Paylah. As shown above, under the wallet balance will indicate the amount left.

Our first stop - China Street Fritters.  

How to begin? After ordering the food that we wanted , we simply scan the code displayed at stalls then key in the amount to be paid.



Tada  ~ It's pretty simple and easy to use.

Second stop - Kitchen Mafia 

After walking around to search for other food, we then decided to try out western food (fish & chips) and satay.




And of course the third stop is to thresh our thirst - Sugarcane drink


In additional, I like the fact that I am able to track the amount I spent by clicking on the history. I totally like the idea that I no need to dig out my coins to find the amount that is require.
