Red Carpet Wax Museum @ i-City, Shah Alam

After the not so good experience at the Snowalk. I was somewhat sceptical about the so called “Red Carpet Wax Museum”. But what the hell we were already here.


The entrance was quite impressive. A brightly red colour building with a huge replica of the Oscar. Even the ticketing counter and personnel was very impressive. A far cry from the people at the Snowalk. You walk up to the upper level which had a few wax dolls along the stairs, one of which was Mr. Bean. Upon the walking up there two dolls that bowed to you. This kind of gave us a frighy. Feel that this is simply not a good idea. As the kids was afraid to venture on. After much coaxing plus they saw how fun it was, they became brave.

The displays are divided with various themes. Some were realistic and some were not.
There were displays that you could join in to take photos. Like giving a speech at the United Nations with Obama and Putin or having tea with Audrey Hepburn. There were wax models of The Queen of England, William and Kate, the Beckhams, Jet Li and more.

ALIEN AUTOPSY

NOT SO REAL TRAVOLTA

The kids enjoyed mimicking the different actors especially Jet Li and PSY

My Verdict

A nice place to walk around and be with the stars. Take your time and take lots of pictures. Great to post on your Instagram or Facebook. LOL. Well worth the money spent.

Farm in the City. Malaysia’s Premier Petting Zoo

Farm in the City, Fun Outing for the Budak Bandar

Farm in the City is in the Seri Kembangan area yet surrounded by nature with trees and animals. To date its the best petting zoo in Malaysia. Animals are here are quite tame. My sons especially loved feeding the racoons.

There are lots of animals roaming around especially chickens and roosters. My own two budak bandar boys loved chasing chickens around.



My eldest loved the Longkang Fishing. Well nowadays the drain in our area don’t have many fishes like what we had when we were small.


My number two loved trying to catch the rabbits at the Pet Village.


Here are some pictures of whats in store when you visit Farm in the City.

My Verdict

A fantastic place for families with children to spend their day. The kids can have a feel of holding and petting animals. It such a good experience for kids to have an exposure with these animals. Don’t worry, there is alot of wash basins with soap throughout the park. Go early in the morning. Noon time most animal were seen resting. Probably too tired entertaining kids. Bring some loose notes. There’s little vending machine around the park providing food for the animals. Your kids will have an fun time, mine did. They also have a little cafe, so the kids won’t be hungry.The tickets cost about RM116 for the four of us.It was well worth it.

Petrosains Science Discovery Centre. Fun Learning

An Educational Outing at Petrosains KLCC



Petrosains

We went there after having lunch at the Food Court on the 4th floor of the Petronas Twin Towers. Bought tickets at the counter, which was quite cheap RM15.00 for Adults and RM5 for children aged 3-12 years old.

Disclosure: This page contains affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, we earn a small commission if you click through and make a purchase.

We spent almost 2 hours there. One good thing that the Petrosains Management did was put up rest areas everywhere, people can rest while their kids explore their many exhibits. Not many places I’ve been think of this. They even provide free lockers and strollers.

You enter via a black pod shaped vehicle. Something very unique. Its called the Dark Ride and last for about 4 minutes. The Dark Ride really makes you feel that you are travelling in space.

There is alot of interactive displays to try. My son’s favourite was the Mini Excavator and the Oil Rig Escape Chute.

I didn’t take much photos as I busy explaining different experiments and displays to my six year old. We even tried the Hurricane Simulator,where the wind reaches to 130km per hour. Then we moved on to the Geotime Diorama where we greated by a large moving dinosaur. Here you learn about earth, fossil and petroleum. Then you move on to the Exploration exhibits where you learn the inner workings of the oil and gas explorations. Here’s where my son tried the Chute and the Mini Excavator. Then we moved to the Sparkz, where there’s more interactive displays to try. As for my two year old he enjoyed the Giant Lego blocks so much so I had to pull him away from it.

But going there and experiencing for your self is better.


Its quite cheap. Two adults and 1 Child and one inan, we only paid RM45.00. Don’t forget to bring your MyCard as foreigner pay a different price. If you can avoid he school holidays as it gets really crowded. There were a few things that we couldn’t try as they were so much people wanting to try it. Example was the Race Car and the Robot Football. But all in all it was a great place to bring the kids. They will get a hands on xperience about science.

My Hotel Review of Impiana KLCC

Impiana KLCC is a great home base for exploring Kuala Lumpur



I chose the Impiana due to its location as we were planning on visiting the Aquaria and Petrosains.

Disclosure: This page contains affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, we earn a small commission if you click through and make a purchase.

Check in and check out was fast even though they have only few counters available. The room we got, had wooden flooring, which was fine by me. Reason being as a parent, I feel that hotel carpets are not hygienic. You can see the wooden floor if its dirty or dusty. The view wasn’t fantastic (view of a office building) but it was alright as we spend the whole day visiting the Aquaria, Petrosains and the Petronas Twin Towers. The room even had a bathtub which both my son and wife enjoyed soaking themselves. The room was clean and toiletries was adequate, housekeeping even came in the evening on both days to check if everything was ok and gave me without any additional charge a blanket. Thats what you call “Seeing to the Guest Needs”.

The TV Channels had the Malaysian Channels, Movies, Disney and so on. They even provided a DVD Player which had a USB slot but it didn’t work when I tried to plug in my Thumbdrive. Both days we had breakfast at the Tonka Bean Cafe. The variety there was good, there were lots to eat ranging from Western to Local Dishes.

I was surprised and happy that there was a covered, air conditioned walkway connecting the hotel to KLCC and the Twin Towers. We didn’t need to face the cars or even the Kuala Lumpur heat. The walkway was also a blessing as it rained when we about to return to the hotel. The bell staff said that the walkway even leads to the Pavillion Shopping Centre but we didn’t venture there as we were too tired.

My Verdict

For me the Impiana KLCC is a great home base for exploring Kuala Lumpur. Don’t worry so much about the view of your room (unless you are going to spend the whole day in the room). There’s lots to do outside and the covered, air-conditioned pathway is a great help but avoid the rush hour when people return from work. Rooms are clean and services is alright.

Why We Love Aquaria KLCC (And You Should, Too!)

Our educational family outing at Aquaria KLCC

This year during the Year End School holiday and as it was my son’s birthday, we did a trip to the Aquaria at KLCC. My wife and I have this thing about giving our sons experiences to remember rather than giving them gadgets. We’ve been to the Coral Wonderland in Melaka which was OK. But the Aquaria were awesome.  It’s been a long time since we went for a trip together as my youngest caught a deadly virus called Kawasaki but luckily he recovered. All thanks to the Doctors at Tuanku Jaafar Hospital Seremban. They were really great. It’s not only me who said that but the other patients there said the same thing.
