A day out with the love ones.

Finally a day out with my Precious again!
Saw many ppl posted pictures of some lego exhibition, so decided to check it out!

So, have found online that its the Art of the Brick exhibition, and was extended to 26 May 2013.

The Art of the Brick
the Art of Brick

A short little background of the Art of the Brick exhibition.

Unlike most people, New York-based artist Nathan Sawaya never stopped building, creating and exploring his own imagination using LEGO® bricks which he has played with since a young age. In this critically acclaimed and the first major museum exhibition to use LEGO bricks as the sole art medium, Sawaya transforms them into awe-inspiring and thought-provoking sculptures, elevating the toy to the realm of art.The Art of the Brick at ArtScience Museum will be the biggest yet, showcasing 52 sculptures including the iconic sculpture Yellow, a 6-meter long T-rex dinosaur skeleton, and – to be unveiled for the first time – a sculpture of ArtScience Museum.

Next coming up would be-> Mummy: Secrets of the Tomb

After the exhibition, we actually planned to have picnic at marina barrage. However, due to the rain, we have decided to go have DIM SUM.
Wendy & Hongzai came to pick us up and we headed to 126!

126 (搵到食) Eating House (Open 24 hours)
126 Sims Ave (between Lor 15 & 17 Geylang), Singapore 387449Singapore

This is my 2nd or 3rd time visiting, somehow i feel the standard dropped quite a bit...
The food tasted soso....

 photo pictures122_zps0d8fcb85.jpg
century egg with minced meat porridge.
The toppings were generous though

 photo pictures124_zps56babca7.jpg
Xiao long bao with no soup inside, although the waitress already reminded us that there were no soup, we still decided to have a try.
And it really turned out to be not so nice.
Can skip this dish in future.

Isn't it cool?

Pic stolen from Wendy.

As usual, i've chose the safest, dark chocolate ice cream (my fave).
It does tasted like ice cream, melt in your mouth.
I wouldnt say its very fantastic, but its rather worth to try once, looking at how the ice cream were made, pretty interesting.

Great thanks to Hong zai, who have drove us around! :):):)
