Visit to Trick Eye Museum Singapore

Trickeye Museum Logo

Trick Eye is short for ‘Trick of the eye’, which refers to an art technique that turns two-dimensional paintings into three-dimensional images through the use of optical illusions. With that, 2D paintings on the museum walls, floors and ceilings appear to pop out of the surface and come to life. Visitors are more than welcome to explore the various themed galleries with their eyes, hands and even cameras. Step inside the paintings to complete a visual narrative with your creative poses, and watch a “tricky” story unfold before your camera. At Trick Eye Museum, you’ll be creating unforgettable memories with friends and family amid fun and laughter, with a dash of educational and cultural enrichment.

Thank you The Influencer Network and Trick Eye Museum Singapore for this wonderful invitation. I had tons of fun posing photos and upload on my .instagram account.

As a visitor, I will suggest that you should unleash your creativity and pose as many pictures to create special effects. Do enjoy yourself while taking pictures at Trick Eye Museum.

There are a few different theme zones in Trick Eye Museum Singapore. Namely – Unveil the mystery, Re-ignite the ‘Excitement’, Overcome the ‘Supernatural’, Immerse into a Fairy Tale romance, Escape into Fantasy and Explore a Trick World.

Here’s some of the photos taken at Trick Eye Museum Singapore.

Travel: Xiamen

This was my 1st visit to Xiamen, Fujian Province, China. 这是我第一次来厦门,福建省,中国。Xiamen is a bustling city in China. It will be good to stay near Xiamen Train Station for the first visit. Most of the people speaks Minnan Dialect. If you know Mandarin or Hokkien, it is good.

This is one of the most famous landmark on Xiamen Island when people are boarding ferry to Gulang Yu鼓浪屿!

You will need to go to the ferry terminal to take 5min ride to Gulang Yu 鼓浪屿 to have a closer sight of these places. Packages are available at the ferry terminal.

Tried their famous Sha Cha Mian (Bought at RMB20). 尝试了著名的沙茶面。Should try it.

Transport公交系統

I love Xiamen’s Bus Rapid Transport (BRT). I tried boarding their buses on the bus rapid transport system during my stay in Xiamen. 我喜欢廈門快速公交系統。Rm0.50 for a short distance ride!

20150424_110625

You will need to get these blue chips to board the buses. People will have to pay for the distance travelled from point A to point B. You should try their BRT too if you visit Xiamen!

Transport in Xiamen is very convenient from Xiamen Island to the mainland. You can see a lot of road bridges and see Jimei University 集美大学 along the way!

Will come back again if I have the opportunity!

A Trip to Pulau Ketam (Crab Island),Klang, Selangor, Malaysia

My first trip to Pulau Ketam (Crab Island), Klang, Selangor, Malaysia.

IMG_4608

I had never visited this place before however, I know Pulau Ketam is located on an island near Port Klang, Selangor Malaysia. It is an offshore island and people have to take a ferry from Port Klang to Pulau Ketam. You have to go to Port Klang – South Port to take the ferry to Pulau Ketam.

South Port

Port Klang was known as Port Sweetenham and was renamed as Port Klang. Port Klang also has a KTM Komuter station where people can take a train from KTM train station or KL Sentral to Port Klang.

 IMG_4618

You can buy the ferry ticket from the ferry terminal or buy the ticket on the ferry. Currently, each ticket costs around RM7 for a 45-minute ferry ride. If you are lucky enough, you may be able to spot dolphins during the ferry ride.

IMG_4350

Here’s the available timings for the ferry rides from Port Klang to Pulau Ketam and vice versa.
IMG_4600

Selamat Datang ke Pulau Ketam! Welcome to Crab Island! There are two villages on Pulau Ketam; Kampung Pulau Ketam and Kampung Sungai Lima.

I stayed the biggest hotel in Pulau Ketam – Hotel Sea Lion in Pulau Ketam within Kampung Pulau Ketam! It is located very near to Pulau Ketam Jetty. The owner of this hotel – Mr Andy Cha, is the village head of Pulau Ketam. He’s very friendly person and I enjoyed my stay in this hotel.

IMG_4374

You can visit its website at http://www.sealion.com.my/index-sealion.html for its different packages and room types. 1 of the packages do allow people to have private karaoke party too!

IMG_4487

Stayed in a room facing the jetty and the sea view. When there is low tide, you will love the sight of crabs moving about. It is not just one or a few, it is more than hundreds of crabs! Thus this place is named after crabs. This is only a small section of the area being taken by my digital camera.

IMG_4491

Touring around the island is a must. People either walk, cycle with bicycles, take a boat ride or ride motorised bike within the island. No sight of cars and traffic lights at all! It is best to wear a comfortable pair of flat shoes to move about on wooden planks or concentrate ground. You can rent a bicycle at RM5 per day.

IMG_4394

You will see a lot of salted fish and dried prawns on this island too. It is a good place to purchase a lot of dried sea products on Pulau Ketam at an affordable price.

IMG_4400

Seafood meal is a must in Pulau Ketam, especially Ketam (Crab). Fresh from the sea.

IMG_4383

Best to have a steamboat dinner there.

IMG_4483

It is also good to explore part of Pulau Ketam with a boat ride to see the different village settlements (Chua Chu Kang, Hokkien village, Teochew village, Hainan village) and the

IMG_4504

Temple in Pulau Ketam, Klang, Selangor, Malaysia

IMG_4475

Enjoyed my stay in Pulau Ketam. It is quite different from the bustling cities of Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Malaysia and Singapore. A form of quiet, kampong life on an island. No traffic lights. Happy people with not much worries. It was good to experience such simple life and learnt a lot. People must be contented with what they have in life.

IMG_4544

Hope to come back to Pulau Ketam again! Will update part of this post with Chinese Characters!

A trip to Lost World of Tambun theme park in Malaysia

Selamat Datang ke Malaysia! (Welcome to Malaysia, 欢迎到马来西亚!)

This was my 1st visit to Lost World of Tambun, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia. Purchased a package during the Travel Malaysia tour together with the coach package as I wanted to visit Lost World of Tambun at Ipoh for a good getaway. Lost World of Tambun has Lost World Hotel, Lost World Petting Zoo, Amusement Park, Water Park, Lost World Tiger Valley, Lost World Lupe’s adventure, Lost World Tin Valley and Lost World Hot Springs and Spa. It is a good place for families to visit and have fun!

This place is not so accessible by public buses and people may have to take taxi or book coach packages to come to this place. This place was featured on Channel 8 with Quan Yi Fong and Aloysius Pang on The Dukes’ Theme Park Challenge 公子爱挑战.

Entrance at Lost World of Tambun Theme park

I stayed in Lost World Hotel as it was more convenient for me to walk from the hotel to the theme park. The best is to have a room with the view facing the theme park than the block of houses located at the back of the hotel. The good thing is that there’s Giant located at Sunway City Ipoh and people can walk from the hotel to Giant to do shopping and makan (eat).

Hotel Room at Lost World Hotel

The hotel room rates are affordable and the bed is comfortable.

Stalls in Lost World of Tambun for makan…

Amusement Park in Lost World of Tambun Theme Park

If you wish to play the games, you have to pay to play the games and entry to Haunted Chambers.

Map of Lost World of Tambun theme park

Lost World Swan Lake

You can try paddling with the swan boat or fish feeding at swan lake in Lost World of Tambun theme park.

Swans at the swan lake…

Best way to explore the theme park is to board the tram. The queue can be long.

Lost World Tiger Valley

The place you can see different types of cats….

And watch tigers feeding!

Waiting for food now….

Tiger’s in the water…

As well as watching other animals such as Raccoon performing

Lost World Tin Valley

History of Tin mining in Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia.

This reminds me of the Channel 8 drama – Our Journey A Voyage 《信约:唐山到南洋》where Li Nanxing, Elvin Ng starred in the drama.

You can see a lot of interesting history about Ipoh in Lost World Tin valley.

Elephants were used for the transportation of tin ores.

Dulang washer – to ‘wash’ of the sand and get the tin ore. Not an easy thing to do so after trying. People will need a lot of expensive to shake and swirl the pot to get the tin. Does it reminds you of Jeanette Aw’s Character 林鸭子 Lin Yazi in Our Journey A Voyage 《信约:唐山到南洋》 as a dulang washer. Dulang washing was usually done by Hakka women.

Learn more facts about tin, tin mining and Dulang washer. I did not expect that Dulang Washer needed to pay to buy a pass to pan for tin ores.

Time for a rest at the Dulang Teahouse and know more about the tin mining history as Ipoh’s a famous city known for its tin mining activities.

There is also Lost World Adventure Park near the tin valley area. Booking is required.

Part of the Adventure Park…

Lost World Petting Zoo

Serpentarium in the Petting Zoo…

You can see a wide variety of serpents in the Petting zoo…

Prairie Dog – that doesn’t look a dog to me. (however, I do not have a good picture of it)

Resting place for the raccoons in the petting zoo.

There is also Lost World Animal Care Centre to take care of sick animals.

It will be good to come to Lost World Petting Zoo and see animals.

Lost World Water Park

Tried the lazy river and the water slides (sorry that I do not have the photos as I locked my camera in a locker)

I enjoyed the water slide rides and had fun then.

Best to get slides to enjoy the water sliding rides!

Lost World Hot Spring – Spa

I did enjoyed myself with the hot spring as its mineral hot spring water consists of a lot of minerals and good for health.

Hot Spring Pool area
