We were suppose to meet up with jlow and another of his and Gadget-daddy's friend. Our plan was to go to the Aquaria KLCC. Unfortunately a few things turned up and were had to put off our get-together.
So instead of going to see the fishes, we decided to take the boys to see some trains and old cars and other stuff - to the museum.
I was already imagining the dark corridors of the natural history gallery, mainly stuffed animals and insects and eggs behind glass cases, apart from the displays of old retired mode of transportation.
To the boys' delight we took our time on the trains and road transports displayed outdoors.
To Mommy's disappointment, the lower galleries were under renovations. I asked the lady at the ticket counter and she said all the displays on natural history are being moved out (did not mention where to), and the whole place will be just to focus on the Malaysian history.
Sigh... so all the images I have of what the museum used to be is also history. The trips I made as a child with my family, a few with different school groups as an excursion. We even played tour guide a few times to some foreign friends and brought them there. all are now but memories.
Well, I hope it'll be better when things are all done up.
Anyway, a visit to the museum is always marked by a photo taken at the main entrance (although it's been closed for renovations and we entered from the back).
(Oh, here the boys were too busy looking at dragon flies and water gliders in the fountain and I just got a candid shot. Gadget-daddy actually took a family photo later with his camera set on a timer.)
We did buy kacang putih (friend peanuts) from a stall. The lady had them in bags and on a wooden table, more like a desk, and you can just imgine her walking away at the end of the day balancing the table on her head. (Sorry, too busy to take a shot of her and the stall) So we had old style kacang putih at the museum. How appropriate. :)
So that was our kinda adventurous morning.
