Circus act is not only about trapezium and juggling or clowns, we learn about many other acts. More importantly, we have a better appreciation of the science and hard work behind successful acts.

Balancing 3m above should be the most popular act for families 🙂

There are some acts which shout “Do not try at home! “

Like flying out of a cannon! We always thought it is cool to be blasted from a cannon, until we read that performers had perished from incidents.

The angle of the projection, the projectile speed, all this matters to land a circus performer safely into a net.

 

Flying trapezium and somersaults are not suitable for me, Thank You.

 

Swallowing a sword gives me the chills! What if we slice or pierce ourselves ouch! In comparison, it is definitely safer for Boon Xin to contort herself into a box.

..or for kids to beat Atom Ant’s strong charisma 🙂 

 

Unicorns might be a myth but some folks who might be disfigured or handicapped are sometimes paraded as objects.

One of the tallest person of all time.

 

Can you spot the minuscule fleas! Amazingly, some circus have a troop of fleas trained to perform and entertain!

Tickle our funny bones, mirrors and clowns.

 

Giant shoes, weird faces and more clown props on display. I always get spooked by the sinister clowns!

Yup, Hollywood likes to portray some clowns who go around killing! I would hate to be spooked by a clown in the middle of the night.

 

The animals of the circus. 

 

…and the cosplaying humans. I found a mini ewok too.

 

Visitors will learn about the Science under Circus Big Top too.

 

How can music change our moods?  

 

.. how can our nose  distinguish food and stuffs?

 

Through Science Centre Big Top, we got to experience the tricks and science behind an act. There is a lot of Hard work!

We now have a better appreciation of the “magic” behind a circus.

Eyelet Junior for our active lifestyles

[ Sponsored ]

Eyelet Junior series of eye wear fits our kids’ sporty lifestyle. Be it basketball, hiking or cycling, our eye wear stays on the kids’ faces (without slipping).

More importantly, we are happy that the stylish and functional eye wear helps to control kids’ myopia from worsening.

Sometimes,  I am a bit disappointed at myself for being negligent at protecting my kids eyes. We only have a pair of eyes and we sometimes take our eyesight and vision for granted.

I suspect we (society, peers) might have subconsciously influenced kids that we can always rely on lasik to solve all our problems.

We list some of the common tips to protect our eyes below.

  • Ensuring book is 30cm away
  • Rest our eyes from the screen every 30 minutes
  • Too much smart phone games
  • The high percentage of myopic rate in our population might let the kids believe that myopia is normal
  • It does not help that both parents are respected and kids might have a “resigned” attitude thinking genetics will win the day. I keep finding excuses, when we as parents should try harder to delay myopia progression.

 

Nanyang Optical’s Project Junior campaign wish to impress upon kids and parents to take better care of our eyes.

Nanyang Optical wants to raise our awareness about myopia prevention (and management).

Boon Kang testing his new Eyelet Junior eye wear. We love the colourful and bright eye wear, which suits their active lifestyles and style.

We have been using Eyelet Junior eye wear for a few years now, and we are confident of their durability and strength.

Poster below list some of the attributes of Eyelet Junior. You may read about our previous Eyelet Junior review here.

 

We understand the new version of Eyelet Junior is even more durable and lasting. Our boy decided to go back to his black and green colour combination.

During Boon Kang’s eye examination, our optician would remind us on how to take care of our eyes.

I noticed eye checks have gone digital too, we no longer have to look at the wall and read out the characters. Everything is flashed from a projector onto a screen.

3D check was new for me. We learnt that lazy eye will impair our ability to  differentiate depth, thus we will not be able to appreciate 3D movies’ special effects.

It is never too late to take care of our eyes. I must try harder to help kids take ownership of their own eye health.

Do follow Nanyang Optical Website and Facebook for the latest updates. We would like to shout Thank you to Nanyang Optical for helping us manage our kids’ myopia.
