Okay, Singapore Discovery Centre doesn't suck that hard.

I concede this because they searched for, found and responsibly returned my wallet last week.

The money was gone, but the cards were all still in there. Ras clart!

And in fact, there were a few cool things about the SDC that I didn't mention last time. For example, there's an audio station where you can hear interviews and podcasts from... Mr Brown.

The persistently non-political podcast at all! There's even some mock canteen conversations between kids about how their classmate Jeff Lopez got sent for detention because he never hand up his test paper. Don't know if can sit for exam again. ;)

Kimberlyn also had fun playing swingy-parabola with the headphone cord.

Also, there's Little George, the talking robot:

Kimberlyn seriously loved this hunka metal. He could recognise her voice and name (as long as you got back to him within 30 minutes to remind him) and sang Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Row Row Row Your Boat... strangely, no Mari Kita. He got a little defensive when we quizzed him why.

Mostly, though, I'll reiterate: it was kitsch.
