but instead I will share with you the few photos I managed to take while on my annual trip home to Aus.
My attempts at Zebra Therapy continue:
We arrived at the zoo at 5:30pm after Boo declined to leave our hotel room any sooner. So missed the normal days entry but a lovely girl in the help desk let us in for free for a look around before the "Night Safari: started at 7pm.
We had such a good time going around in the empty zoo, that by the time 7pm arrived we were ready to go home. Highlights of the evening? A giant snail making its way towards an exotic plant by the light of the lanterns, some kind of tree shrew that was hopping around on the WRONG side of the enclosure which freaked me out entirely. And an impromptu dip in the waterplay area by Boo, surrounded by off duty ponies from the petting zoo.
Absolutely poured rain at times but it all added to the tropical experience and it was a nice wind down from our weeks away.
Boo and the scented edible garden. First time we have noticed this in Singapore Zoo.
We actually took shelter under a Banana leaf at one stage. They work.
Deco thoughtfully ponders the merits of Oliver over Annie as discussed by Boo. Or as we say:
SHUT UP AND DRINK YOUR GIN!
Well we would have if the gobshites in Pipers on the Lake had managed to bring us some, or even the Diet Coke and Iced Coffee we ordered and PAID for up front. We waited 15 minutes before giving up and walking out. (after getting a refund)
More about that event later.....
