The Museum Invaders
A playdate to the museum?! Yes yes yes!! I don't need to think twice to say yes when being asked by Janne! Mommy is not that artsy person though, ... and to be honest sometimes it takes me a while to really understand the meaning behind an art piece, but anyway still love to go to the museum. Btw, this was Gide's officially first museum visit, a real one! Considering Alive Museum is not really a museum HOHOHO .. And what made it even greater, we had Bibi and Sophie joining us as well! Yeay! The more the merrier!! Err, not really! HAHAHA .. They're toddlers remember?!! The four musketeers invaded the museum!! .. And mommies were having a really good time of exercise! HOHOHO
We went to visit SAM @ 8Q whereby they're having this Imaginarium: Over the Ocean, Under the Sea exhibition. You can check it here for more information. It's not my first time visiting SAM @ 8Q and I always like the idea when they have this kind of exhibition. They keep changing it btw! So better check their web before you go there!
There were four floors that we went through .. and guess what! I had to carry this 11kg lil dude with me since stroller was parked downstairs and he only started to learn to walk and can you imagine it would take forever and ever and ever for him to walk on his own. Obviously!! Actually there was a lift provided but it's okay since the Queen Street Wing side was not as big as the main building .. And we didn't want to miss a chance to have our #OOTD at the murals by the staircase! Teteup ya harus diniatin #OOTD-nya! HOHOHO
Each floor has two different areas that showcased different installations from various artists, except for the first floor which one installation was placed inside the building and another one at the glass panel at the entrance if you can spot it! My fave one was "Ada" by Karina Smigla-Bobinski, a Polish artiste. It was a big, .. not big! Enormous PVC balloon with charcoal studs around it. Gide was not so keen when we entered to this room as it was quite dark, but after a while he enjoyed himself pushing and 'bouncing' the ball.
Some were wondering whether it was a waste of time to bring these kiddos with such a young age to the museum, .. and my answer is no! How come experiencing something good, in this case art become such a waste. I bet Gide had no idea what this all about but who cares! Neither did I as an adult!! But again,the process of seeing and exploring something new, meeting and interacting with his peers and new people .. that's that matter!! Too add on, exploring his senses by touching and feeling different kind of textures, brave himself to adapt in different surroundings .. that's a lot of things!!
Bringing the kids to the museum was one thing, .. having four of them together was another thing!! HAHAHA .. Gide was the youngest among all of them yet the most handsome one! Ahey!!! And he's the one who still crawling here and there, and just taking baby steps. The other three girls were about the same age and yes the were having fun on their own. They were everywhere!!! HOHOHO .. Salute to all the mommies with running toddler, especially Lolla with Bibi the energizer bunny! I'm just waiting my turn 'till this boy able to run around! *grin*
On the side note, I need to learn to maximize the use of the camera while having moving toddler! Ya lor .. Mommy want to take good pictures for blogging wise! Oops!! I mean for keeping the memories!! Well not all memories should be kept through pictures and shared in social media but I like the idea of having those JPEG files in my laptop. So yes I need to be more advance in taking pictures and looking after a toddler at the same time! Next in my to do list! *wink*
Finally, a decent group photo in complete formation .. Not to mention where-are-we-looking-at! HOHOHO .. Looking forward for more museum date in the future!! Wohoo!!! Cheers to motherhood and art lovers out there!!
