Alive Museum Singapore

Compliments of omy.sg, I got to visit Alive Museum Singapore with one guest for free. And I got the hubby, who luckily is free, to go with me. He is more ON in posing lamely than me. Haha..

Alive Museum Singapore, newly opened in June this year, is a 3D illusionary museum in Singapore that offers a sensory experience that tricks one/s visual, physical and environmental perceptions. It is located in Suntec City Mall Level 3.
Alive Museum first started in Korea as Trick Art Museum in Seong-eup, Jeju Island, and changed its name to “Alive Museum” in 2012. Since then, there are 15 branches of Alive Museum globally, making it the largest chain of 3D interactive illusionary art museum in the world. Outside South Korea, Alive Museum is also in Turkey, Vietnam, Thailand, China and now (from June 2014), in Singapore.



Alive Museum Singapore has over 80 masterpieces and 9 of which are themed locally and unique to Singapore. The museum has plans to engage local communities from various walks of life to create artworks that they think define the essence of Singapore. Hence, by year-end, the total number of artworks in the museum will be more than 100 pieces.

Art installations (Trick Art, Digital Art, Object Art and Experimental Art) that interact with visitors, change their perceptions, wrap their physical world, all captured as fun photo memories.

Collected our tickets, and off we go into the world of illusionary art.


Some of the artworks that we didn't pose with. Either too many people, too many photobombs or simply just.. didn't pose.

The dragon in the tunnel that looks very real life.
Steve Jobs catching "you" looking at seductive photos on a Samsung/Apple laptop?
I just find it too horrible to pull the ah pek's teeth =(
Hook your shirt near the baby's hand and you will be easily "lifted" up by the strong baby
Mischievous Elephant sniffing you or your butt.
If only there were three of us. One in each eye and a photographer.
Ever dreamed of being saved by Superman?

We had fun posing at the lesser crowded artworks at the point of time. It got pretty irritating at one or two areas where there are bigger groups of visitors and they take turns posing and REposing in the small area, and making us feel as if we were being extras there and blocking their way x_X

Ouch! Hammered on the head

Home representative! Cheers cheers!

This cute little girl is simply just too cute. When her mummy asked her to hold and save the penguins then smile, she happily stomped her feet and smile and laughed. She is so adorable.

Free WiFi access inside the museum is available for visitors to upload and share their fun snapshots immediately with friends and family.

Check out the photo point photo sticker on the floor to see where your camera should be pointing to get the best effect in your photographs.

Advised to go in a group of three as some of the artworks require a third person around to take the photo. Try not to go in too huge a group as the place, even though spacious, but when there are too many other groups, the place simply just got too cramp.

And don't wear a skirt. There's this mirror room, that you would not want to go into when wearing a skirt. The room is hard to get in too due to the number of people waiting to get the room to their selves and there is no alternative route to go pass it if you do not want to wait. Patience...

Kaohsiung : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After a much complicated directions online on how to get to the Fo Guang Shan 佛光山, we decided to take the KRT to Zuoying Station and then take the bus, 哈佛快線. Exit the Zuoying KRT Station and wait at Bus Platform 2 for the 哈佛快線 to come. There is a time schedule for the bus to arrive. Each bus trip cost NTD70 per person. You can use the iPass to tap in and out for the journey.

Alternatively, based on online reviews, you can take bus 8010/8011 at 高雄客运. It is just opposite our hotel and behind 国光客运. However, it is not recommended by the staff there as it is a much longer time and distance, that's why she recommended us to take the 哈佛快線 at Zuoying.

Here's the bus. We waited quite some time as we were early.


Here's the bus schedule.


We have reached Fo Guang Shan 佛光山. A little overwhelmed by the map. It's a huge place. And since it's on a hill, there are alot of slopes and stairs. Just thinking about it make my knees go weak.…

Kaohsiung : Food and more food

Besides eating at Night Markets, we also went to some recommended places online and on TV. These places are not that near from the KRT and need some working out on feet.

We had accidentally went past this cafe in Zuoying Shin Kong Mitsukoshi 星光三越. The hubby saw a TV show recommending this special biscuit ball where you need to hammer it to eat in smaller pieces. We tried it as it was quite fun. We had the chocolate flavoured one.



The huge wooden hammer in shop to break the biscuit ball into pieces.


I think we hammered too much... Haha the ball became overly small pieces. It's delicious.


You can buy as gifts. If I remember correctly, three balls into one container.


I am pretty regretful that I did not buy more to bring home. I like the taste of it a lot. And I am missing it so much. Ahh.. Delicious.

Kaohsiung : Cijin Island 旗津島

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After visiting The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and the Takao Railway Museum 打狗鐵道故事館 in the morning, our following itinerary was to head to the Cijin Island 旗津島. By the way, if we were able to travel around on bicycles, it would be much easier. So, do rent a bicycle to travel around if you are able to cycle. Especially for The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and on Cijin Island 旗津島.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Orange line KRT station, Sizihwan Station 西子灣站 (O1), you will be able to reach the ferry terminal. Follow the signs (鼓山渡轮站) on the lamp posts to get to the ferry terminal.


 The ferry also ferries passengers travelling with bicycles and motorcycles. For us, without any cycles, it costs NTD15 per person per trip. You can pay in cash or iPass.


The ferry ride is only about 5 to 10 minutes. Cijin Island 旗津島 is just opposite, separated by the waters. The ferry terminal looks nicer on the island.


There's a temple on the island. Cihhou Godde…
