Dear Blogger,

I did something which I have not done in 15 over years. I went to the zoo!!! I've always wanted to visit our world-famous Singapore Zoo, but there were always excuses like, no time, no money, no friend, etc, etc, etc. Finally, the opportunity came and I didn't hesitate one bit!

Like most things Singaporean, the zoo has changed a lot. I mean, A LOT! There are definitely more exhibits and animal shows. It seemed bigger than the last time I remembered it. Or maybe I was getting too old. Less stamina. But I'm glad this time round, I got to enjoy all of the zoo at my own pace and time. The zoo is best experienced when you have a full day to spend.

The 3 bus services at the Singapore Zoo: 138, 926 and 927

Me at the zoo entrance ala Paris Hilton (LOL!)

Take a picture with these brightly coloured birds for $5 (all proceeds go to the caring and conservation of the animals)

Feeding time for these monkeys at the free-ranging forest

Orang utans high up in the tree tops

Feeding time for otters too!

Me near the otters

The white tigers were so beautiful that I wanted to bring home one!
