Come ALIVE! 7 ways to make the most of your visit to Alive Museum Singapore @ Suntec City (OMY Blog Club)

Us Singaporeans love taking selfies, but we love taking selfies in themed locations even more. Just look at the number of people queuing for a snap with a cutesy mascot and some snazzy props at any event or theme park! 😀

Making snap-happy visitors even happier, Korea’s hugely popular Alive Museum has transplanted itself to the heart of Singapore (Suntec City, to be precise) with a “specialty” in local-themed installations.

Judging by the explosion of Alive Museum related blog posts, Instagram snaps and Facebook albums, it’s no wonder that this 3D illusory attraction is quickly becoming one of our must-dos in Singapore. So before you check it out with your camera in tow, here are 7 ways to make the most of your visit:

Cat Cafe Neko no Niwa @ Boat Quay

Image Cake, cats and jazz by the window on a lazy weekend morning; it sounds like a scene straight out of a Korean stationery set. Yet this purr-fect slice of heaven exists amid a stretch of bustling F&B and pub joints along the scenic route of Boat Quay.

The cat cafe concept is no stranger to Asia; hundreds of furry-themed franchises dot Japan and Korea, with even a sheep cafe of bleating, four legged darlings drawing patrons by the dozens.

So does Cat Cafe Neko no Niwa (which is Japanese for ‘cat garden’) live up to its cutesy, cuddly counterparts in the East Asia? There’s only one way to find out. 😉

Hit The Roof with Edible Gardens & Friends @ People’s Park Complex

It doesn’t get any more rustic than this; an urban rooftop garden set in the heart of Chinatown, a place more widely known for its sweet pork and burning joss sticks than a pop up farm. Helmed by a motley crew of DIY and environmental enthusiasts, NONG (which is Chinese for farming) had run its course on the spacious rooftop of People’s Park Complex, and it was time to bid it adieu.

The send-off? A miniature farmer’s market of workshops, hipster wares and – not forgetting – food and drink! Set against a backdrop of architectural mishmash (read: high rise buildings towering over ye olde shophouses), vendors like The Cajung Kings, Ice Cream & Cookie Co. and 28 Hongkong Street were the main crowd drawers, while the smooth beats of Matteblanc permeated the evening atmosphere.

Haven’t had the chance to check them out, so there was no way I was missing out on Hit The Roof. With food and drinks being freshly prepared with each order, the food segment of Hit the Roof seemed like a very casual live kitchen, making more than a few mouths water in anticipation. 😉

Hello Kitty’s Celebration @ City Square Mall (15 – 23 Mar 2014) (Invite)

This character needs no introduction; she’s the world’s most famous kitty, and she’s spun an industry worth gazillions of billions of dollars loved by fans young and old alike. That’s right, I’m talking about Hello Kitty, the mouthless feline star who has taken over City Square Mall with the latest Hello Kitty Celebrations (more on that later).

Young ones and grownups who are young at heart are in for a treat this March school holiday. Spend a minimum of $50 and get your paws on a Meet & Greet Pass to take a picture with Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel (see below!). In addition, every $50 spent gets you and three family members a potential golden ticket to a 7D6N trip to Japan, with a visit to Sanrio Puroland, the mecca of all things kawaii (limited to 20 entries per shopper per day regardless of amount spent).

On top of that, City Square Mall is also rewarding shoppers with a $5 City Square shopping voucher for every $200 spent ($250 if inclusive of NTUC FairPrice receipts). So hey, how’s that for participating in Singapore’s favourite pastime? 😛

Race The Dead 2013 , Day Two @ Sentosa

I once joked that the only thing that could make me run faster would be a zombie hot on my heels.

Little did I know that I would be outrunning not one, not two, but an entire army of the undead, on the sandy beaches of Sentosa!

Branded as Singapore’s First Ever 5K Zombie Run, Race The Dead combines a grueling obstacle course with an even bigger, more menacing obstacle – the zombie, whose dreaded bite can turn you into a grey-skinned, sore-popping creature that goes “Gnnnnnarrrr” at the sight of human flesh.

Having a mild obsession for zombie movies like 28 Days Later and the like, but being too cowardly to give the ol’ horror themed mazes a try, Race The Dead became the next best thing – sort of a replacement agenda on the bucket list. 😉

You can’t tell here, but I’m actually cowering on the inside – and holding in a fart.
