it’s been awhile since my last entry but i’m back!!
just finished my retail attachment and i miss it already ): managed to chiong all my requirements within 2 weeks our of the 4, so i had a pretty chill second half of the attachment, of which the weekends were spent doing some pretty fun stuff!
one of which was our sudden and random decision to visit the Singapore Zoological Gardens!
the Singapore Zoo was having a special offer for all those born in August, so because of Jeremy, we managed to get 1 free ticket (minus tram)! we also had an additional 30% discount thanks to my newly obtained NTUC card (i am officially an auntie :P) so admission for the both of us was just $12 each with unlimited tram rides!
giraffes are bigger than they look! they’re absolutely imposing when standing just 1 metre next to them on an elevated platform. i never knew that their heads were that big- almost half my height!! their tongues are very long (15 cm at least) and black. while trying to hold on to the carrot stick long enough for my photo to be taken, their long tongues would be twirling and snaking around the stick to grab a hold of it. super grossss!!! haha one even nibbled on my finger because i didn’t want to hand the carrot stick over.
really had such a fun sunday at my favourite touristy place in Singapore! so glad Jeremy drove there too because transport getting in and out of the zoo can be a real bitch because public transport is rather scarce in the North. someone ought to built an MRT to the zoo already!
also very impressed with the professionalism of the cameramen; most of whom are willing to help take pictures using your own camera rather than exploit you with photos that you have to purchase at an exhorbitant price.
wishing for the River Safari to be built quicker so that i can visit the pandas Jia Jia and Kai Kai!
