Finally, we are ready to go in! We were there on Sunday morning and been queuing for a good 25 minutes for our turn. Each batch of 8 headcount will be guided by tour assistant, thru the whole event of 5 stations. Entire session will take around 25-30minutes. Meanwhile queueing, the staff got us to sign an indemnity form, in case of any accident (no worries there isn’t any thing that is of explosive material) and every kid must be accompanied by adult.
First station : Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream
If you have tried ice cream that gives you the dragon breath, that’s sure made out of liquid nitrogen. In this station, the scientist guide parents in helping kids, to roll ice cream with a cotton candy wrap, like a burrito. All kids were awed upon seeing fog form by nitrogen liquid. When it’s done, everyone starts to feast with the delicious treat. It taste a little too sweet, though both my girls said it isn’t…Kids!
2nd Station: Spherification factory
I was told the blue liquid and blue jelly is man-made caviar. We get to drink that up using test tube, it’s tasty. Fyi, you won’t get to keep that test tube. 😏
3rd Station: Transparency bistro
Whole time at this station I could only catch her saying, “All of you have to finish up this purple cabbage before you leave” 😅 I wasn’t paying any attention at all, just continue snap photos. And the next thing I saw was everyone is drinking again.. That’s my favourite part!
4th Station : Mixology Bar
After listening to the briefing on how the density of liquid would separate each other, we were told to choose any juice we like to try. Prior to that, we must give it a swirl to see them binds together.. then gulp! down it goes into the throat.
5th Station : Food Hacks
This station is among all, i think, the best. That’s because they serves Japanese water drop fruit cake and edible rice paper chicken wrap! 😂 So, it’s about hacking certain ingredients, into making these 2 dishes. Oh so delish!
LAST BUT NOT LEAST : Ninja fruits game
Jo and Jubi spent about 10minutes playing this game, SLASH! Am happy thinking how much energy they’ll burn out for a good afternoon nap.
Remember to get you card stamped at every station, and receive a gift at the end of your gastronomic discoveries.
