400th post SPECIAL EDITION : Singapore Trips Day 2 - Indulge in the Uniquely Singapore experience : Mint Museum of Toys & Raffles Hotel

Continued from Singapore Trips Day 2 - Indulge in the Uniquely Singapore experience : Chinatown Heritage Museum & URA Museum.

After getting our lunch at Maxwell Food Centre that located in front URA Museum, we took bus to our next destination, Mint Museum! Here a short brief about Mint Museum.

Whether you are a child at heart or an avid toy collector, The Mint Museum of Toys has something for everyone. Housed in a contemporary five-storey building, it boasts a rich mix of nostalgia, education and inspiration.
The Museum's boutique café offers you a contemporary menu complemented by a fine wine selection.
As you sit down for a meal or a short break, enjoy collectables that are thematically linked to the toys in the main exhibition.

cool? yay! seriously that museum was too nice for me wif all d toys. Who dun like toys? dun tell me u nv touch a single toys when u r kid!? All the toy in this museum is not ordinary toys. It was sort of limited edition or rare toys. Thus, the price is so GODDAMN expensive..LOL..
