♥ 7 Monthsary @ Jurong Bird Park
/ 2:40 AM
Today is our ♥
7 Monthsary & it is also Singapore's Birthday. Baby and I spent our monthsary at Jurong Bird Park.
It's baby's first time here!
Hyacinth Macaws @ the entrance of Jurong Bird Park
Not sure what's the name of this orchid, but it's really pretty!
Our map, $1 retail vouchers and tickets!
(Double-Wattled Cassowary & Mandarin Duck)
We went to see the Penguins (:
Board that shows the different kind of penguin species in the enclosure!
So cute, that I couldn't resist but to take a picture with it.
Baby & I
(Isn't it pretty, the swan shaped like a ♥! Good for this occasion)
More penguins - from Africa (outside)
Their enclosure was so stinky I nearly puked and I didn't even eat anything!
Baby said it smelt like the market! I beg to differ..
Can you tell the difference?
There is definitely a difference, even though they look the same!
Left: Victoria Crowned Pigeon; Right: Common Crowned Pigeon
We then walked over to the Toucan & Hornbill enclosures.
It was really crowded, so we didn't stick around after this photo.
We went to check out the same species but different types.
Great Pied Hornbill
- is one of the larger members of the Hornbill family.
Don't remember the name of this Hornbill.
How to tell the difference between the male and the female? Simple!
Male: Has a lighter brown head; Female: Black
Next we headed towards the Lory Loft
At the entrance to the Lory Loft; just after the café, we were greeted by 2 noisy Lories.
Unfortunately I didn't manage to capture the bridge as I was too scared to look down (afraid of heights). So I had to keep my camera as I needed both hands even though baby was behind me. Holding me, but he's evil! He made me look down..
We left Lory Loft to head to Birds of Prey, seriously was so glad to be out of there.
1) Noisy to the max
2) Irritating foreigners who block your way
3) Scared that if we look up we might not like what we see and aiming straight for us!
I would put the Birds of Prey photos up, but i'm too ashamed of them! BLURRINESS! So shall not put them up ):
Did you know that Ostrich are dinosaur descendents?
Male: Black; Female: Brown
On the opposite side we walked into Jungle Jewels.
3 is a crowd
Finally a solo picture of baby, next to a Jungle Jewel board!
Bird Discovery Centre
Baby next to the Elephant Bird; but sad this bird is already extinct ):
Look! It's posing for me (: *thumbs up*
Pelican Cove & Flamingo Lake
OMG! 100% STINKS!
Fast fact: Young flamingos hatch with grey plumage, but adults range from light pink to bright red due to aqueous bacteria and beta carotene obtained from their food supply.
By this time, I was suppose to be hungry with baby. But unfortunately I snacked on a Chicken Pie at the African Waterfall Aviary. In the end only baby had lunch @ Bongo Burgers which was located outside. Before heading out we had to get our hand stamped so that we could re enter.
Baby said the burger has no taste and that you need to add the salsa sauce to it.
This was what we shared, a large Root beer Float!
After lunch, I spotted this large golden bird cage. Got baby to take a photo of me inside, after baby made me squeeze through the bars to get out.
*feels like a caged bird*
Blue: Hyacinth Macaw; Red: Scarlet Macaw
Lastly we went to catch 2 shows.
Birds n Buddies Show @ Pools Amphitheatre
Before the show
(Look at my sleepy face and pimples = =)
My tired baby (:
King of the Skies Show @ Hawk Walk
Can you spot the Harry Potter owl?
I seriously don't want to be in there; surrounded by different VULTURES!
Out very last stop!
World of Darkness (No flash allowed)
After we took a cab to Toa Payoh Central, cause baby asked me if I wanted Koi! I cannot resist Koi, it's so yummy. After tried the Pao & Siew Mai from Tiong Bahru Bao, recommendation from baby. Took a bus back to baby's place. Silly me! Forgot to bring my ezylink card, ended up paying with coins.
*inserts $1 paper*
(too tired to get a quick snap shot of it)
Took a quick shower, rest and had yummy dinner made by baby's mum or was it dad. Not quite sure on that need to confirm again. Then watched 美樂加油 and facebook before cabbing home. I swear the uncle thought he was a F1 driver, I got home so fast! You know the bend when you're on PIE getting off to Sims Avenue, he was going a 110km/h in a 60 - 80km road. I thought I was going to fly.. Just glad to be home safe (:
