Had memories of visiting national science center during primary/secondary schooling days and liking it then, so bf and I have been talking about visiting it someday. Entry fees is quite cheap at RM3 (According to their website, it is now RM6). We went for the dinasaur exhibition hall as well(additional RM8)


The dinasaour exhibition is quite boring, the hall is small and are man-made models moving artificially like machine, not real dinasaurs fossils.


Once entering into NSC, there are touch pools which are like those in Kenko fish spa, only these are bigger fish.



fishes near entrance to NSC


overhead fresh water aquarium


hamster threading wheel?


This is the dinosaur exhibition, boring~ we spent like 5 minutes inside.


more artificial dinosaur


subterranean journey ie underground structure



Sit on one of these chair as above, and it will go underground, the air cond is cooling and feels comfortable in this whole building


Once we reached certain place underground, there will be a bat-mobile like car which we were given 3D spectacles and watch a 3D underwater show


Feels dizzy and blurry watching this 3D show which lasted about 5 minutes


Sit on chair again to be sent to ground level.

Overall, not an exciting trip, just to kill time walking around and the heat of noon day deters us from walking to other building within national science center(from afar we saw there is like a fish breeding area) and garden area

Recipe taken from Lottie + Doof. Above is metric amount for this recipe


All mix up, the consistency is dry, already have 3 batches baking in the oven when i took the above photo


Sea salt to be sprinkled above each cookie before baking


first batch


2nd and 3rd batch, it helps to have 2 ovens, so much faster when baking cookie, muffin, cupcakes etc.


It is so different from how i imagined it will turn out, mine is quite cakey and thick instead of thin & crispy, but 2 of colleague seems to love it.


Recipe: Chocolate Guinness Cupcake

Recipe taken from Confessions of a City Eater. Above is before baking, need to bake 20 minutes in 180 Celcius/350F

Due to i am more use to gram instead of cups measurement, below are the converted amount which i used

245 gram of flour

260 gram of sugar (originally recipe stated 2 cups of sugar which is about 350gram sugar <1 cup caster ~ 175gram>, cupcake i made is really not sweet enough, some may like it this way, but i find can increase the sugar a bit)

120 gram cocoa

230 gram yogurt which is strained on a cheesecloth for over 12 hours in fridge(from 2 small container of yogurt) to substitute sour cream, reason of leaving it on cheesecloth is so that the consistency will be thicker to resemble sour cream

110 gram of cooking oil

250 gram of guinness stout (1 can of guinness stout i weight it to be 300gram including the weight of can, so pour till only 50gram left in the can)


Guinness stout and others after putting the first batch of cupcakes into the oven, time to rest and take some pic 😛


after 20mins in 180 Celcius, flip the pan inside out halfway to even out heat on the cupcake.


about 25 of them

Overall, the Guinness stout taste is very subtle. However, could it both the beer and yogurt which make this cupcake very moist and with light texture. A keeper for its texture, not so much for the flavour, it is quite a light chocolate cake, not a decadent one.
