zoo LOL

hahaha it was a very last minute decision, but we decided to go to the zoo! of all places, the zoo, yes. but for a thousand good reasons. and one of which had alot to do with having a deprived childhood.

the first thing we saw was a mousedeer, i regret not taking a picture of it for comparison. but according to cassy, i look like a mousedeer. i dont know which part of the mousedeer resembles me. but mousedeers are cute (if you google image them), and so maybe we have that in common. lol

well next up was the crocs, which seriously look fake. it didnt help that their species name was false ghairul. lol

i suppose this is what happens to you when you mug too much. no wonder my skin feels slightly scaly nowadays.

and there were the snakes!

fat ass pythons that could break your neck.
too bad im not a parseltongue.

the animal friends show at childrens world was quite pathetic. nevermind that it was completely pointless, since the dog was more interested in digging holes than running the obstacle course, it didnt even last 15 minutes.

i was so disappointed that they took away all the chicks at the petting zoo. they only had hamsters, mice and naked mole rats for you to oggle at in glass domes. they guinea pigs werent even touchable, since they scuttle off at the single touch of anyone.

we wanted to watch the wonders of the wild show, but it started to pour really badly at the open air theatre. so they had to cancel the show ):

cute orang utan on one of the billboards outside the theatre. by the way, do remember to wear a cap everytime you’re walking near an orang utan exhibit. because they pee while sitting high up on the branches of a tree.

now comes the interesting part.
we were at the baboons exhibit, because oliver couldnt stop obsessiong about their red backsides. and i suppose thats what people usually associate baboons with, however sad for them. lol

but i finally found out why they have red backsides!

haha so basically the enclosure contained at least 50 of them baboons running around and flashing their red backsides.

i even had the sad opportunity to watch 2 of them mating for like 5 seconds. i made sure my eyeballs were washed out with dettol the moment i got home.

afterwards, there was this zookeeping at a booth with bowls of readily cut bananas. you had to pay $2 to get a bowl of bananas to feed the baboons. haha and obviously, oliver couldnt resist the chance to interact with his new found friends, so he bought himself a bowl. we all took turns to try throwing bananas.

and i tell you, baboons are better catchers than CHIJ netballers. they perch themselves on the top of rocks and wait for bananas to get thrown in their direction.

soon it became about which baboon could best impress the banana throwers. a couple of them started doing back flips and showing off their handstand skillz. the more skillz you show, the more bananas get thrown at you. very simple, but im very glad im not a baboon. because i wouldnt be able to get a single banana.

on the other hand, matin and oliver were having insane fun trying to see how many baboons’ heads they could hit with the bananas.

it was off to the pygmy hippos, which stank.

the polar bears exhibit was pathetic. we sat in there for 15 minutes waiting for the damn bear to get into the pool. and it only went in for 10 seconds before it decided to head back to its aircon den. ya polar bears have a 24 hour aircon den. wtf even i dont have aircon and polar bears do. maybe i should be a polar bear.

there was all this hype about meeing the biggest polar bear in the world at the singapore zoo. but the polar bear we saw looked smaller than the one in LOST. lol 2 polar bears, a whole enclosure to themselves, and not one of them getting into the damn pool for me.

try spotting the polar bear’s ass anw, i had to photoshop the damn picture just so the ass could be more visible.

in the end, all our walking in the hot sun (i didnt even get a tan dammit) paid off when we sat down to bask in the goodness of ben and jerrys. awesomeeee!
