Taman Pintar Jogja, who hasn't been there? Me!

I wished to bring my sons here, to Taman Pintar, last year. We were having a long holiday at the end of the year. We stayed at my parents' house along the holidays and I arranged a nice vacation to Taman Pintar, a place where I believed my sons would love.
I would bring them to explore the Playground area where they could do some simple science experiments and excercise, such as the Whispering Parabola Dishes, Singing Walls, Color Spectrum, Tree House or Shaking Bridge.

Besides Playground area which is free of charge, there are Oval Building, Square Building and Food Court. Inside the buildings we can find a Planetarium, a big fresh water aquarium, Dome Area where kids can learn about dinosaurs and simple technology.

But, this beautiful plan was canceled due to a horrible accident of my first son: his left heel was hurt by the running motorbike's spoke wheel. *I break my heart everytime I tell this story.*
Dec, 2014. I'm so sorry, my dear Son.
Today's condition. Alhamdulillaah.
The accident really changed any plans we'd arranged before. But, my son's recovery was our first priority. So, Taman Pintar, we'll see you anytime in the future, insya Alloh.
