Who Pushed Humpty Dumpty? - WW

The queues for each criminal trial enactment 'Who pushed Humpty?' were so long that I gave up after queuing for 40 minutes. I wanted to see the interior of the spaceship-like Court of Appeal. I would live a life of regrets if I did not attend this trial enactment, so I begged my way into one of the sessions. :P

Crime scene

Who Dun it? What happened to Humpty? How did he fall? Was there foul play involved?

Visitors got the lowdown on who saw what and where at the ‘Who Dun it’ visual exhibition.

I could not believe my eyes when I saw our normally solemn Supreme Court transform into a carnival with weird characters being tried at its courts. Photography was allowed. Visitors could even take a photo of themselves in a judge's robe and wig.

The normally solemn Supreme Court has a carnival atmosphere

As we try to uncover the truth of ‘Who Pushed Humpty?’, we met the line-up of motley suspects : Big Bad Wolf, Blind Mouse Satu and Little Red Riding Hood. There was a Detective Tan Coo Coo . :)

Who will face the long arm of the law? Is Big Bad Wolf really guilty?

We gained an insight into the events leading up to the fall, and read how the facts unravel as the criminal trial progresses.


We learn what takes place in the lead up to a criminal trial – the parties that are involved, the type of evidence that is adduced and how the judge arrives at his final verdict.

Little Red Riding Hood testifying

The criminal trial enactment took place in the largest courtroom within the Supreme Court – the Court of Appeal. Colourful 'witnesses' volunteered their versions of the “truth”. It was not only informative, it was a fun and entertaining trial.

This is a wonderful programme for the young and old as it is presented in a fun, interactive way. I learn more about our legal system; found out what some common misconceptions about the Courts are; witness what takes place during a court proceeding. I acquired some basic legal knowledge at the legal talks and enrich my mind by visiting the exhibitions!

Criminal Trial Enactment - 'Who Pushed Humpty?'
Date : 14 & 15 Mar 2009
Time: 30 minutes
Venue: Court of Appeal, Level 9

Verdict : Big Bad Wolf was acquitted because clumsy Humpty fell from the wall. :D

  9. it is a fun outlook on the justice system. I bet it did make a lot of people participate and gain knowledge in the process instead of just serious exhibition and lectures. :)

  12. Dora,
    Big Bad Wolf is not that innocent though, but he was not the culprit. :)

    Surprisingly fun! I'm glad they can think out of the box.

    So many people attended the Open House. Thumbs up!

  15. Liza,
    By making this into a fun-filled and interactive event, the visitors are attracted to the interesting talks, colourful displays and the opportunities to tour this high-security building. I treasure the photo taking opportunity. :)

  16. Gagay,
    Were you at school? There will be lots of opportunities to be FC here.

    You admitted to pushing Humpty Dumpty off the wall!? Naughty girl!

    Visitors enjoyed themselves at this cool event. :)

  17. Lina,
    I know you try hard. Thanks.
    I must think of a reward system for all FCs.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Lina,
    Yes, it was a fantastic job by the creative organisers. So different from the usual boring exhibitions. A great change and visitors have so much fun.

    Visitors come by the bus loads and it was heartwarming to see young adults bringing their elderly parents and young kids to this event.

    I wish there will be such an activity when you come with your boy for holiday.

  19. So it wasn't suicide? I've never heard of that program, what a great and fun idea.

  20. Jeanna,
    Humpty Dumpty didn't die. hehe...
    It was a fabulous idea to use Humpty Dumpty to attract the little kids and big kids. :)

  21. So it was an accident!
    Ah Pui Humpty Dumpty must have put on a lot of weight by following all your delicious food tips and outings here ECL.He must have had tons of that intruiging Chocolate Lava cake too!LOL!
    Great article ECL.I'm sure we all wish we were there!
    P.S - I hope Big Bad Wolf got compensated for mistrial.LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Jean,
    Yes, it's an accident. :D

    Humpty Dumpty grew too fat and rounded, he rolled off the wall. hahaha.....

    Wah! Mentioning that Chocolate Lava cake make me drool. I must go back for it again. :P

    Too bad, Big Bad Wolf won't get any compensation, even for mistrial. hehe....

    I hope they will hold another event like this again.... maybe on its 20th Anniversary? haha....

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well given Humpty's tendency to roll around, I would have guessed it was an accident.

    Nice job "cracking" the case ECL!

  32. Gagay,
    I think JSKit would be too complicated to use for my readers. :P

    Many readers, including myself, are not online most of the time to continue a conversation.

    The characters are entertaining and funny. I could not imagine such a thing happening in a solemn court room! But it did happen and it was meant to be educational.

  46. Fun post!

    'Peacock feathers' don't have much significance in our customs.Lord Kishna wears them in his crown. 'Peacocks' are associated with the religion though.

  51. What a fantastic exhibition - such a fun way to teach kids (and their grownups) about the legal system.

    Irish singer-songwriter Tommy Sands has a song called "Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed" too :-).

    ReplyDelete
  52. Another case of blind justice. Call me a cynic, but they let the bad guy get away again and blamed the innocent. Did they bother to find out the reason for the fall? Perhaps a heart attack from being threatened by the Wolffff Gggrrrr... who very likely had his way with all that broken egg!
    Another very entertaining blog :)
    Happy WW

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hahahaha..this is very interesting! I loved how you've narrated it as well as putting Chris on the line of suspects! :P

  61. How to identify the suspect? They can see me, right? I thought supposed to have some kind of special glass btw me and the suspect? hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  62. oh so it's humpty fault after all. but i think the big bad wolf is not innocent. it should be put on trial for harassing the three pigs.
