Another Zoo trip for us. This time with Baby Dyann as well. 🙂 Darian loves going to the Zoo. He has been talking about going to the Zoo lately therefore we decided to bring him there. We were so shocked to see the queue at the ticketing counter! It was super long. Didn’t expect to be so so crowded. Perhaps it is because we have been going to such places during the weekdays. Regardless, we just have to follow the queue. Got the tickets and paid an additional 5 bucks for each adult and 3 bucks for each kid to see the pandas.

Weather was really good. We were even afraid that it might rain and brought along two umbrellas. We had only managed to enter the Zoo at 12pm after queuing for almost half an hour. Papa Yap bought the 2.20pm Panda tickets and we need to be at the entrance 10 min prior to the time slot. So we went around to see the animals that Darian wanted to see before proceeding to the Panda enclosure.
You can find golden pheasant, red pandas and pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia in the conservatory. Darian was pretty excited to see the pandas. They are so cute. We had only managed to see Kai Kai as Jia Jia was not feeling well. We stayed around in the cold conservatory for 10 minutes and headed to the souvenir shop followed by late lunch at the Mama Panda Kitchen. We bought Darian a cute panda umbrella and he likes it a lot. At the Mama Panda Kitchen, we ordered a set of chicken mushroom rice that comes with a hot and spicy soup and a longan beancurd. And also a panda steamed bun, drinks and ice-cream. The soft drink is serve in a cute plastic straw cup featuring the pandas, golden pheasant and red panda. The cup looks so attractive that I brought it back to reuse. 🙂 The food tastes normal, nothing fantastic just filling. We spent an hour or so eating and resting at the Mama panda kitchen before continuing with our walk.
We left the Zoo at 4ish feeling real exhausted. Well it is worthwhile seeing Darian enjoying this trip and had much fun seeing the animals. Going to the Zoo is really one great educational and family bonding session. There are just too many things for the kids to see and learn. We love going to the Zoo! 🙂
