Recently we brought Kit boy to the Pusat Sains Negara at Bukit Kiara Kuala Lumpur for the still on-going 'Dinos Alive! exhibition to see all those gigantic dinosaurs.

He was all excited when we first told him that we are going to visit his favourite stegosaurus and triceratops. Actually this little fella started to fall in love with dinosaurs only about two to three weeks ago when Mommy intentionally bought him some books and video related to these scary beasts. Why intentionally? Mainly because Mommy has already planned to go for this when first came to know about it from one of my blogger friend's post and of course all those 'pre-preparation work' is just to get him 'ready' for it.

Alright, let's come back to this interesting visits. We arrived at Pusat Sains Negara for the very first time at about noon and the weather on that day was sizzling hot. Surprisingly the crowd was not there yet despite it was a public holiday. However, Mommy still need to Q for a little while at the Ticket Counter. For information, ticket are sold at RM10.00 per adult and RM5.00 for kids above 4 years old. As for Kit boy or kids below 4 years old, will enjoy free entry.

To enter into the giants' habitat, we will have to walk pass the Freshwater Fish Aquarium under the short tunnel with all sorts of huge fishes swimming freely above us and of course Kit boy was all fascinated.

And next, we were welcomed by the host.........a 16-feet tall 'life-size' Tyrannosaurus and a 23-feet tall Apatosaurus. At that very moment with the two ever well-known species standing right in front of you, I really felt like I was back in the Jurassic era. On the other hand, I was quite worry about Kit boy but luckily he was not afraid at all instead kept imitating the roaring sound of the T-Rex.

Besides the above, at the outdoor area, there are also various kids' activities and many children were running here and there enjoying themselves up to the most including our little explorer.

We then proceed to the indoor area where there have even more species of dinosaurs being displayed with some were so weird looking. But unfortunately, Kit boy has missed out this part as he just refused to go in mainly due to the hall was actually quite dark with only minimum dim light plus the loud roaring sound of dinosaurs. Not only Kit boy, but most of the younger children too preferred to stay outside and show off their sand art skill at a kiosk that sells all sort of dinosaur related stuffs ranging from plush toys to games. Anyway, kiasu Mommy took pictures of each and every creature in the indoor section and will definitely view it together with Kit boy later.

Kit boy's favourite...Stegosaurus & Triceratops
Actually there are other side attractions or so call activities like Dino train rides, fossil digging, Dino simulator and etc. but we did not try or participate in anyone of those. Overall, it was quite an eye-opening one especially for children as I believed that this will definitely gives them a much clearer picture of what a dinosaur is instead of just reading through books and/or watching videos. We left Pusat Sains Negara and back to our home-sweet-home at about 4:00pm for a good afternoon nap.

And last but not least, this is what we brought back home from the 'Jurassic Park'
