Papyrus Pleasures @ Chinese Heritage Centre

Popped down with Ethan and Tina to Chinese Heritage Centre to check out Sunday Playday, a programme that is part of Explore Singapore! organised by the National Heritage Board, National Library Board and Media Development Authority. The event provided hands-on and light-hearted ways to learn about all things Chinese. Well, my son Ethan certainly enjoyed his time there and brought home a neat little souvenir to boot!

Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure.
