Terrapin Museum :: Day 03 :: Half-Way Point!


We are finally at the last 50metres of a 100metre sprint to the finish!

Splitting into 2 teams today helped as team 1 covered the design & printing of the infographics & exhibits, while team 2 worked on the remaining facade, stripping of the
carpets and repairing some of the carapace.

No updates with regards to the weather nor water supply, as it stayed the same as Day 02, so we were left with an ironically “wet” Saturday – though insufficient to water harvest despite the drizzle all day long! Internet access at the Terrapin Museum is also very spotty and literally drains our batteries (switching from EDGE to 3G to no service at all), hence why updates at 3AM from our Wi-Fi comforts.

How do you like our 'virtual' Terrapin Museum signage?

How do you like our ‘virtual’ Terrapin Museum signage? wet! Wet! WET!

We are still contemplating and bouncing off names for our mini museum, so what do you think? Short & sweet (Terrapin Museum) or a mouthful like Terrapin Discovery Mini Museum? Do leave us a comment here or on our Facebook page.

We stripped off the blue dark carpets after much deliberation with Hj Yussof, Head of Perhilitan Terengganu as it was stained by rat droppings and urine. It definitely created a brighter ambience to the space. Don’t you think so?

We also managed to epoxy glue carapaces that were broken throughout the years it has been with us. And I must say, its progressing well. Looking forward to receiving our first few guest(s) next Monday, 13th Jan 2014 !
