Singapore Zoo..

Hey Friends,

The day after we visited the glass temple, we went to yet another historical site.. Not so historical la but rather a famous one.. Which was the Singapore Zoo.. The Singapore Zoo is just about a 10 minute drive away from the Causeway..

This wasn't my first time visiting this zoo, I had many many years back and I cant remember actually when.. haha.. But this visit had a few first time experiences which you guys will see soon.. First when we reach there it started to rain and we thought to ourselves that it was just going to rain a while and it did.. But then when we started walking a few steps, it poured out again and it was raining heavy from then on..

We decided, this rain is not going to stop us from having a good time at the zoo.. We went and got ourselves a RAIN COAT each.. Woohoo!! Have you known anyone excited to wear a rain coat.. haha.. The three of us (Sharon, Vina and I) were all in green rain coats walking all over the zoo.. The rain stop for a few minutes while our visit there and we were there from 11 am up to 4 pm.. A pretty long time walking around and looking at all the animals..

We went to three shows and all of them we fantastic.. We started with the POLAR BEAR Show, then the SPLASH Show and lastly the ELEPHANT Show.. My favorite was the Splash Show, because of the Sea Lion performing super neat tricks.. It was very funny to begin with and entertaining as well..

I was almost attacked by this animal..

A RAINDEAR.. I know, you can only see the ASS of

the animal and most of the animals were like this the whole day..

WHITE TIGERS..

Sharon the tiger is looking at you!!..

IMGP5967

Lovely isn't it? How animals imperfection are yet a beauty to behold.. Did you know, there are no specific species of white tigers.. They are a product of genetic defects (inbreeding) of the normal tigers..

By the end of the day, we were dead tired and our legs were painful from walking 5 hours and wet from the rain.. But the whole experience was worth everything.. It was very pleasant to watch the animal not in cages and roam around freely in their own enclosure..
