Piece of Peace World Heritage Exhibition

{ Media Invite}

A few weeks back the kids and I went for the Piece of Peace World Heritage Exhibit over at Fort Canning Arts Centre. It was the first time that the kids and I attended a Lego Exhibition. The kids have been  exposed to Lego since young.

They love creating their own models and playing  with them. Sometimes they create their own mini cities with the lego sets that we have at home.

On the 2nd level of the exhibition  we were given a visual treat of the various world heritage exhibits. Looking at the  lego windmill reminded me of the  actual windmills that I saw in Holland during my European trip in my teenage years.

This famous cathedral in Kremlin is a place which I have yet to visit.  It is certainly a really marvelous work of art dating back to the 14  century.

USA is another place which is on my place to visit in the future. It would be certainly great to see this monument close up if the opportunity arises.  This scale size model is also one that is towering above the rest of the exhibits in the room.

This must have been one of the cutest exhibit on display. The  playful nature of the giant pandas from the  Sichuan GiantPanda Sanctuaries  were clearly depicted in the exhibit.  It’s really ingenious how the Lego masters  design, calculate and build such exhibits from scratch.

On the lower level of the exhibition were the entries to the Lego competition that was recently conducted. Entries for the adult and kids category were on display  in standing cabinets.

While I was looking at the  exhibits by the contest finalists  Tiger girl was busy posing for photos at the kids play area.  There was a ramp to race your lego cars and few lego play areas for kids of different ages.

Tiger girl has a few sets from the Friends’ series and couldn’t wait to take a picture with her favourite characters.   She would bring Mia and Emma around their supermarket and ice-cream parlor when she plays with them at home.

It was the first time for us to watch a movie at Fort Canning Park and we were ill prepared  for it. The kids and I ended up seating at the steps as we didn’t bring picnic mats to sit on the grass like some of the other visitors did.  It  would be nice if mats and refreshments were provided during the movie screening though as  we left halfway when seating on the steps got a bit too uncomfortable but not before Tiger girl got her memorabilia- Ninjago Face Mask.

Grab good bargains at honestbee’s Family Market

Family Market- The new store on Honestbee
Family Market- The new store on honestbee

There is a ” new kid” on board  in  honestbee’s selection of stores-  FAMILY MARKET .  This new store focuses on family and baby essentials that interested customers will find of good value.

Being a busy mum of three, I hardly have time to go supermarket shopping at times. I dread buying groceries with the kids on the weekend as it is extremely crowded  with shoppers making it twice as tiring navigating through the aisle.

For the past few years I have been buying groceries  and household items online as it saves me the hassle of jostling with the crowd and having to lug the heavy bags home after each trip.  Now with even more stores available online  I have even more chances to snap up more bargains.

SAVINGS = $$$$

As you can see from the above screenshots comparing the same item – Pampers Baby Diapers ( L Size) from two different stores on honestbee’s website– NTUC and Family Market there is significant savings if the product is purchased from Family Market.

There is a saving of  $5.30 if the item was purchased from Family  Market. That is a whopping 30% off the listed retail price!!

Is Everything much cheaper at the Family Market?

Not everything sold at Family Market may be cheaper then in other stores. The bottle of Pokka  Jasmine Green Tea is $0.35 more expensive then if it was purchased at NTUC.

The variation of price of an item ,whether it is cheaper or more expensive, depends on  the probability that  the  store you are comparing with is having an offer when you shop.

How about comparing with items from other websites/ stores not from honestbee?
