Man and the Environment: Exhibition at the Library

On our recent visit to the Woodlands Regional Library, we could catch an exhibition on the importance of saving the environment. We also found the book exchange corner at the Woodlands Public Library that I shared last week. Now, this post is about the exhibition on the topic ‘Man and the Environment’.

These days we hear a lot about topics related to saving the environment, recycling, upcycling, and reusing. There are many efforts from many parties including educators.

Public libraries are great places to educate the community including children. I found this exhibition as a good resource for both me and my son. Therefore,we spent time reading and watching all these exhibits.

The below artwork is about upcycling. It has used upcycled materials such as bottle caps to decorate.

Plastic or the environment? We should decide

Other than information, we could find book recommendations that are written about saving the environment.

Another important message : BYOB : Bring Your Own Bag! Say no to plastic and avoid plastic bags!

Recycling in Singapore

Care and love is for pet friends? The importance of pet friends and care and love to them was another topic.

My son joined the activity with his thoughts about dogs.

There were also word search games that children could try. The word search sheets were arranged with 3R-related terms.

We also went to the Tamil language section and found the below items. I captured a few photos because I was attracted to these beautiful pots and decorative items.

Mee Rebus and Teh Tarik

Below is some food from Singapore. Singapore is a paradise for food lovers where there are different food from different cuisine. Therefore I thought it is good to feature some of the food we try through blog posts.

Mee Rebus
Mee Rebus and Teh Tarik

Mee Rebus is a noodle dish cooked in thick gravy. Basically it is a dish from Malay cuisine and is easy to find in Singapore and Malaysia. The taste is a mix of sweetness and spiciness.

I had a cup of tea (Teh Tarik) with this noodle dish for my breakfast until I wait for the child who was participating in his scouts’ event last week.

These are some updates from my life. How about you? Did you have any new adventures? Please share as a comment. 🙂

Also, what efforts do you take to protect the environment? Please share your thoughts about such exhibitions, education, and spreading the word about the importance of saving our mother earth!

  1. I think that’s a wonderful exhibition and we really should be teaching our children about protecting the world. I’ve never heard of mee rebus but it looks interesting.

  2. I like you BYOB. We do this since… decades.
    Interesting (and sad) I see more and more students buying plastic bags again.
    Looks like a fun learning place you went and oh, am I hungry now, this looks very, very good.

    We recycle almost everything, only few end up as rubbish. But it´s sad to find say… cucumbers wrapped in plastic. What for?!
    There are more and more shops and kiosks where you can bring your own cup etc. And even get a discount.

  3. Your library is fabulous, so much to see, and they are doing a great job informing and teaching. We have a very small one here, its just a tiny town, I must look if they do any exhibitions there. The food looks soooooo good! Yummy! Happy T Day Amils, hugs, Valerie

  4. awesome exhibit-I think we can all help with recycling in some way. Your food looks delicious too, and I would love to try your tea.
    Happy T day

  5. I always wonder how much saving the environment is taught and talked about in other countries. I’m glad to see that in Singapore it is. I love that display and those fish. And your meal looks really yummy. I love trying new foods, and I have never had this noodle dish. I would definitely order it though. Have a wonderful T day and week ahead Amila. hugs-Erika

  6. You have so many great adventures! i really enjoy coming along! We are planning our own adventure in a couple weeks! Happy T day! hugs! deb

  7. You have a wonderful library. Not only are there areas for learning, there are areas for creating and doing things children can explore and love. I was SO impressed. I live by the three Rs as much as I can every day,but during the month of April leading up to Earth Day, I document them on my blog, too. I love all your photos of the environmental aspect of that library. I also adore the pots in the Tamil language section.

    What a fun breakfast with your tea and noodle dish. So different from an American breakfast. I’m glad you shared it with us, too. Thanks to you and your son for taking us to that incredible library and sharing your tea and noodle breakfast with us for T this Tuesday, dear Amila.

  8. You find some great educational things to do with your son. I love the library!
    Loved seeing the food and the art from the shop. Beautiful painting!
    Happy Tea Day,

  9. Great post, and exhibit. We do a few things, like re-use cloth shopping bags, and we have the low-flow toilets, and have long been careful using water. I don’t understand people who take long showers! What do they do? LOL Have a great T Day and week.

  10. Your library looks like a wonderful space. I don’t think the responsibility to recycle or not use products should be left solely to the consumer. I think manufacturers should be held responsible for the packaging used in their products, and to recycle said packaging. When I was a kid a very long time ago, companies like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, bottled the beverages in glass bottles. Bottles were returned, the consumer got a small fee for returning the bottles (2 cents), and the bottles were washed, sterilized, and reused for the beverages. The average person is well versed in and practicing recycling. The reality is that less than 10% of these materials are actually recycled. Companies should be doing more.

  11. What a great exhibition! If the children are taught about recycling etc hopefully they will ‘educate’ their parents. Here in our village the people are very careless about recycling. They don’t separate their garbage or try to re-use things.
    Belated Happy T-Day,

  12. Dear Amila,
    Environmental protection exhibitions are extremely important and it’s great when they cater to both children and adults – because we all have a lot to learn. In my blog there are always ways to contribute to the protection of our earth – mostly I post environmental information in the Post Scriptum. We must save the world for the children – for your adorable son, my little grandson and all the other little people who still deserve a good future.
    All the best from Austria 🌷☘️🌷, Traude
