    Well, I'm a guy, you're a girl. Someone once said that a guy thinks of "certain things" an average of six times every five minutes.

    OK, here's the article...

    If it's too small to read, here's what it says...

    THE FORCE WILL BE YOU
    The Art of Star Wars coming to Science Centre near you

    By ZUL OTHMAN

    THE Force sure is with the Singapore Science Centre. Well, at least it will be from Nov 19.

    An exhibition of galactic proportions ? The Art of Star Wars ? will be opened on that date to give Star Wars fans and curious on-lookers a glimpse into the pop culture phenomenon set in a galaxy far, far away.

    Organised by the Singapore Science Centre and Japan?s Hata Stiching Foundation in co-operation with Lucasfilm Limited (the company owned by Star Wars? creator George Lucas), the five-month-long exhibition will showcase over 270 unique and original artifacts culled from all six Star Wars episodes.

    This is the first time this priceless collection ? put together at a cost of $1.8 million ? will be displayed outside Japan and the United States.

    The first Star Wars movie, now re-titled Episode IV: A New Hope, was released in 1977 and became an instant worldwide hit.

    Nearly 30 years on, the franchise has spawned five sequels as well as numerous novels, cartoons and television series.

    And fans still can?t get enough of Star Wars.

    At a press conference to announce the exhibition on Wednesday, Dr Chew Tuan Chiong ? the chief executive of the Singapore Science Centre ? said this is a very exciting development for the organisation.

    Dressed in a long flowing Jedi robe, Dr Chew said: ?Although I am not a major Star Wars fan, I am aware of its importance in cinema history and how it pushed the envelope in movie making.

    ?It has captured the imagination of millions by combining romance, science fiction and art.

    ?More importantly, the robots and spaceships featured in the movie have made it easy for young people to appreciate science and technology.?

    Occupying over 3,000 sq ft of space within the Science Centre grounds and insured for $14 million, the event will highlight more than 150 original posters, colour paintings and over 100 costumes.

    It will also provide an in-depth analysis of the technology behind the creatures introduced in the latest movie Episode III: The Revenge of The Sith.

    Exclusive to this exhibition will be a section named The Jedi Gym, which is aimed squarely at hardcore fanatics.

    Fans will be able to test their Star Wars knowledge or see if they?re cut out for a stint at the Jedi Academy by controlling a ball?s movement with their minds.

    As Dr Chew explained, these interactive exhibitions are all about making learning more fun.

    He added: ?They are designed to ensure people have a hands-on experience of science. It doesn?t matter if they?re Star Wars
    fans or not.?

    Fans would be interested to know that a representative from Lucasfilm will open the festival, with rumours suggesting that it will be George Lucas himself.

    Dr Chew was understandably tightlipped about this development.

    ?While we are expecting word from Lucasfilm, we have no idea who it will be yet,? he said.

    WHAT: THE ART OF STAR WARS
    WHEN: NOV 19 TO APRIL 3, 2006, 10AM TO 6PM.
    WHERE: THE SINGAPORE SCIENCE CENTRE.
    ADMISSION: $18 (ADULTS), $12 (CHILDREN).


    The caption under the picture reads...

    NO, I?M NOT YOUR SON: Dressed as a Jedi, Singapore Science Centre chief executive officer Dr Chew Tuan Chiong refuses to accept that Darth Vader is his father.

    hahahah that article.
    Just tibit information. Stormie was there too, but kinna out of it, as came from the battlefront fighting off rebels.

    Most of the SSC bigshots were there, along with the Press. Food was good. Stormie drained the bowl of Jabba Juice, again! Damm Stormtroopers! heh.

    As to the little thing about the opening night. Don't want to reveal things that are not confirmed yet, but there WILL be customed characters there on the 18th. Something special has been planned for the arrival of the President. Now to just get things done so that the plan can be put into action.

    Yub! :) Our next Official one is Dec 11th, Sunday. The rest aka majority of the MySciFi Group will be arriving around 2-3pm in costumes/armor. Hopefully I'll be in costumes too. [face_praying] Dec 12th, Monday the MySciFi Group should be entering the exhibition hall but I understand, since most here will be schooling or working (duh!), attendances are optional.

    Anyway, you all are kept being asked for on Sat. [face_dancing] Once the exhibition opened, many visitors keep asking when the Costumed Talents will be arriving as it was put in the newspaper that you all will be around from 10am-12pm. I heard it even stated that C3PO and R2D2 characters will be around too. :eek: Not too sure as the past 3 days, I hasn't been able to check the newspaper except Sat & Sun's TNP.

    And on Sun, visitors are asking if the costumed talents will be around too. Have to keep telling them that for now, no more costumed talents appearances.

    So on behalf of the Crew of the AoSW Exhibition, thank you for coming on Fri and Sat (especially Sat ;) ).

    For the rest, gear up for our next Outing on Dec 11th, Sunday! ;)
