|At the entry point, each child received a cheque for 50 kidzos which they could exchange for cash at the CIMB Bank.|

Just as I thought they were going to go onto the fire truck, the kids were asked to sit down and were taught how to use a can fire extinguisher instead.
|See the pilot's uniform and cap used in Kidzania Jakarta? It's really smart looking. Why can't they have this uniform in KL?|
After that, thinking that S would be allowed drive a car, we went to the car area, only to be told that he didn't reach the minimum height. He had obtained a driving licence in Kidzania Jakarta and even drove a car there, so he was tremendously disappointed that he couldn't drive over here. The car was much bigger and the pedal was too far to reach it seems. So he had to be contented with being a petrol pump attendant.

Next, the boys went to the car workshop to learn about car maintenance.
My camera battery ran out and I had to use my phone camera to snap pictures, and it came out blurry.

|Attending an art school. They had to pay 5 kidzos.|
|They spent another 10 kidzos each to make a bracelet from beads. I was surprised that they wanted to do this. They chose their own bead colours and designs and were pretty good at beading it.|
|S went to work as a surgeon. I couldn't enter and had to watch from afar. He told me later that he removed some organs from the sick man as they had black patches. Then they put it back together again.|
After visiting Kidzania Jakarta, I was a little disappointed with our experience in Kidzania Kuala Lumpur. However, it is only their first week and there are still things to be ironed out. In addition, I was also disappointed that many outlets such as the Oreo biscuit factory, the bottling plant, Dell notebook factory, Vitagen factory, and several others weren't open yet. Furthermore, the 'roads' in the city were smaller, thus there were no taxis or buses plying the road, unlike in Kidzania Jakarta, thus, it didn't seem to be that exciting.
