Our baby brother has an appointment for vaccination today at Panaga Health Centre in Seria at around 1 pm. Our parents decided not to waste the 50 minutes drive merely for that purpose. Hence, we all left home earlier and visited the Oil and Gas Discovery Centre (OGDC) before the Friday prayers. We arrived at OGDC at around 10.30 and it was perfect ~ they close at 11.30 on Fridays.
The first display that caught our attention was some information about a group of Bruneians who successfully conquered Mount Everest earlier this year. From what we understand, a second expedition is currently planned, and daddy was actually offered a spot in the second attempt to stand on the highest peak on earth. Daddy however had to decline the tempting offer after much thought ~ and due to the lack of support by family and friends. Mummy especially thought the high risk is not worth leaving us behind; the children. Hehehe... perhaps daddy will have better luck in convincing mummy next time!
We then walked through the exhibitions and had a great time. Lots of the displays were interactive and we got the chance to experiment some science facts for real. I must say that all the displays were interesting, and my most treasured experiment was lying down on a bed of nails. When I see such reality tricks on tv later on, I can proudly say "Hey, I did that!"
Enjoy these pictures!
One particular display was a bit intimidating. Daddy was the only one brave enough to experience becoming a human gyroscope. Here is a picture and a video that mummy took.
