Stretching myself out of bed early in the morning at 7:00am, I got myself ready for today’s big day out; a family visit to the Singapore Zoo. With a cooler bag and packs of ice, my wife’s preparation of pasta salad last night will be kept cool inside the cooler bag and this will be our family packed lunch.
Before heading to the zoo, I have tested my little Kayden multiple times on how interested will he be for visiting the zoo. He insisted many times that he doesn’t like the zoo at all and he really mean it.
Reaching the Singapore Zoo at 9:00am, we had our breakfast at the Inuka Cafe located at the ticketing counter before the start of the whole zoo event. Simple breakfast.
As a precaution in case of our little boy is lazy to walk and request to be carried, my wife have decided to purchase tram tickets at $5.00 per adult fare. These tram tickets were sure very useful!
At station 1 was the Polar Bear and an indoor exhibition hall where cold temperate animals such as the Wolverines and Racoon Dogs were kept cosy inside.
Walking further up, here comes the “get close to” African Wildlife station, where animals were all kept in their open natural habitat.
Let me introduce to you my personal favorite spot in the Singapore Zoo, the Rainforest Kidz World. This area has a Wet Play Area, a performance show for the family, a carousel and a Kampung House. As the name goes, the Kampung House shares and gives a deeper inside of what types of pests, or unwelcome guests, that were commonly seen back in the olden days of Singapore. These pests includes cockroaches, crickets and snakes. Yikes! Putting these pests aside, the Kampung House also showcases animals such as rabbits and goats.
It has been more than ten years before I revisited the Singapore Zoo again. It is a great place to bring the children to. The whole morning until afternoon was a tiring but fun experience. Kayden got knocked out totally when we got home. All those loud drilling sounds from my next door neighbor did not woke him up at all.
Thanks for reading my blog and here are the little fellows bidding farewell to you. Cheers!
Singapore Zoo is a great place to check out these lovely animals. You might also want to check out Asia’s largest bird sanctuary, the Jurong Bird Park.
