Hubby wanted to go for shopping but I was so very sick of it. I prefer some nature outings. I suggested the butterfly park as the bird park in Lake Garden was quite good the last time we went.
We drove all the way there. When we arrived at the entrance, the butterfly park did not look all interesting and it was a bit small. Hubby made another suggestion to head to the zoo. Bb was sleeping at that time, so eventually we decided zoo it was. It was a second trip to the zoo this year alone.
This time bb has more awareness, he could recognize more animals. He fed carrot to the deer, wanted to touch the camel badly, climbed up the ape man signboard like an ape, calling out the bus in the zoo, running loosely like a wild cat. There was this one instance when we were resting at one of the bus stand in the zoo. A 5 or 6yr old kid was having his Mamee snack, the kid was making some sign to bb and bb took out a strip of Mamee and put it in his mouth. OMG! When did he have a strip of Mamee with him? It’s too late to stop him and I don’t want to be seen as rude in front of the kid’s parents. When the bus arrived, he waved bye bye to the elder kid without me telling him to. Kids do have their way of communicating, it surprised me sometimes!
Malaysia zoo is still pretty much a third world one, sorry to say that but I really hope one day they could be on par with the Taronga zoo in Sydney or any other better zoo in the world. Parents, let’s keep our fingers cross.
Nevertheless, it was quite a satisfying trip as we sweat and exercise a teeny bit. At least it’s much much better than shopping in a congested mall.
