Trick Eye Museum Singapore

This entry is photo heavy, you have been warned!

IMG_5415

By now, you probably would have already known that the famous Trick Eye Museum from Korea has arrived in Singapore! No need to fly all the way to Korea for these interesting conceptualised 3D art photos, great big yay!

Ever since its opening (plus there was an opening promo 50% off tickets), I've been wanting to visit that place, but via my research on Instagram, looking at how long the queues were and people having to queue 4-5hours JUST TO ENTER. Can you imagine that after queueing for 5 hours, you still need to queue at practically every station to take your one or two pictures? I was like omg, NO WAY! By then, I'll probably be rather angst and bored (though we could and would be happy to self-entertain but still...), perspiring like mad (looks and points up at the scorching weather here) which makes photos uglier (because mood plays a part in photos) and in conclusion, likely wouldn't enjoy my experience there as much...

So the boyfriend came up with this super genius plan of visiting ALIVE museum instead. Well, we have fun there as it was a first-time experience for the both of us, seeing how the 2D wall images come alive (literally) in 3D as a photo. However, we told ourselves that that was just an eye opener and to train us for future similar museums as we still wanted to visit Trick Eye Museum hopefully when it gets less crowded in the next few months.

AND GUESS WHAT?
God read my mind!

Because one day, I received the invitation to Trick Eye Museum.
I was super excited, like yay God is such a great giver in his best timing. This is all in his plans and coming to the museum now means no queue to enter and us bloggers have the entire museum to ourselves. Awesome!

"The traveler sees what he sees. The tourist sees what he has come to see.”

We've never been a big fan of any sorts of museums, really. But this has to be an exception.
What more can I say?

To make this post more interesting, I shall share a real life fairytale story then.

A story of how... *giggles*

I GOT LOST IN THE MUSEUM
AND
HOW THE PRINCE TRIED TO FIND THE PRINCESS!
(if only it happened in real life... haha)

 But anyways, here goes!
As all fairytales, they begin with;

Once upon a time, 
there lived a @princessamantha (for more pictures & updates, check out my instagram!)

IMG_5432     IMG_5359

She loved all things pretty, well anything and everything. Needless to say from the look of my floral blog layout.
Call her the typical girly girl, yup she is, but what you need to know is that she has a sporty side to her too.

SAM_4443

She even did skydiving and it was one of the best feelings she had ever felt!
Not only that, but this time round, she took this activity to a higher level by combining it with her love for taking selfies. "Smile, Mr, Smile!".
Forever looking so unglam, but...
That was the exact definition of #YOLO!

IMG_5499
Except, note that she has a really bad sense of direction and can be very gullible at times.
So, as expected, she got lost in the trick eye museum even though it was not super duper huge *facepalm moment*

SAM_4445
Based on the CCTVs, she was last seen chilling out with Mr Panda!

However, she moves around so quickly that the CCTV couldn't capture where exactly she is at any one moment in time! :(

Where else could she be then?


SAM_4440
and if that wasn't enough, Mr elephant allowed her to seat tight on his trunk!

SAM_4426

After getting down from Mr elephant, she met an abandoned baby and because of her soft spot for children, she wanted to help him from the bottom of her heart, so she slowed down her pace and decided to focus on giving him care before anything else that's attractive in the museum. It was tempting but she knew she had to look after the poor little baby. Instead, upon picking the baby up, MAGIC HAPPENED! He immediately grew so huge! So huge that he captured her in his cage for no reason!!! :( She guessed that he liked her so much and wanted to keep her there but even so, she thought of that only to make herself feel better about this baby...

Well, now that she was trapped, it was easy to locate where she is at!


So...

her Prince could now save her easily!

SAM_4432

but quoting Shakespeare "The course of true love never did run smooth"

Therefore, he had to overcome many different obstacles in order to be the knight in shining armour!

IMG_5439
first off, take the weapon!

couldn't find any, so I guess a broom from his quidditch season training works as well...

up up up, into the air!

IMG_5433IMG_5448


She was a playful wild child, she gets attracted to all things cute like the dolphins, but he always protects her from all harm knowing there's a shark behind! Gosh! #truestory 


Finally he found her!

Both of them got out of the deep blue sea, got onto the land and were so happy to see horses. How apt! Well, though they were not beautiful white horses as seen in all fairytales, nevertheless, desperate times calls for desperate measures. A racing horse that runs fast, away from all forms of danger would be a better option.

Thank God!

IMG_5446
and they rode happily back to the castle far far away...

Yes, they were reunited... but well as stories must have a twist!

The horse couldn't stop in time, crashed... and thus, as you can tell, they were stuck in a snow globe. Don't ask me how did that happen. It's a fairytale story for a reason,
*ooops, just play along thanks LOL*

IMG_5409

They tried all ways and means to get out but to no avail!

Instead of worrying and panicking, they started praying because prayers work wonders!

God answers prayers in 3 ways: "Yes", "No", "Later"

Though they still didn't get out, amazingly, they felt really comforted. They were happy being stuck in a snow globe so long they were together.

IMG_5430

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

After having heart to heart talks in the snow globe, finally God answered their prayers (with the 'later' option) and let them out!

As all fairytales, well, they must end with;
And they lived happily together! (:

IMG_5435

You know your boyfriend's a keeper when he goes the extra mile overcoming all obstacles to find you (literally!), willing to pose shamelessly for photos like these, spending quality time together on a Friday night after a long day at work, and for taking pictures for you! Thanks dear :) Honestly Singaporean boyfriends are well trained photographers after taking instagram worthy pictures for their girlfriends, tbh, I'm super thankful for their awesome talents! (: Hoping we girls can be more appreciative of their efforts (especially seeing how some girls 'scold' their bfs for taking an ugly angle of them)


To end off, here are some 'tricks' (pun intended) for Trick Eye Museum!

1. Don't wear Skirts / Dresses
because there are a lot of poses which require you to do many awkward poses in certain angles or climb around. Actually I knew this before going there, but #vainpot me wanted to look nicer in a dress and shorts would be too casual. I guess if that so, the best bet would be to go in a romper or skorts!

2. Go in Groups
For places like this, it's advisable to go in groups. Double date, triple date, or simply hanging out together as a clique! Not only because you can help one another take nice pictures, but with more brains, you can get creative ideas getting inspirations from your friends. Also, some stations would look more epic when it's taken in a group with more people. Sometimes, solo shots can get really borrringgg...

3. Bring a Camera / iPhone
DUH! I brought my camera but eventually, I ended up using my iPhone camera. LOL, such a failure. But I felt that it's easier to snap using my phone because I can review it quickly and it's more handy afterall. But if you are intending to do a legit photoshoot there, then it would be good to go with like a semipro or dslr plus a tripod or even a selfie stick! It saves the day especially when you are alone or as a couple (and there's noone else to help you take pics). Having said that, be prepared and be nice in helping other people take pictures too! :D


4. Be Creative!!!
Don't worry if you don't have any ideas on how to pose! On the walls next to every station, there will be photo inspirations. So just look towards it and follow suit! Honestly, I regret a little in not being too creative in there, mainly because there were too many people there and I felt very "rushed"... plus, those queueing up were staring at me so I felt as though I was being judged for awkward poses that I did, LOL. Okay, not that I really care cause I don't know them anyways right, but still... I felt quite restricted somehow, don't ask me why hahaha :/
I guess I would have been more creative with my poses and actions if I was the only one there. #justsaying Don't need to PAISEH. cause everyone else would be doing those poses too!
