Zoo Excursion (whoop-de-doo!)


I went to the zoo on Saturday with my cell group, so you can understand why I'm so thankful that it wasn't too hot nor was it rainy :P Taking 2hours to travel there only to be met with wet weather doesn't do very much for your mood.

Here are some nicer photos from that day's excursion. Not a lot of animals, huh? Come to think of it, where were the zebras that I saw the last time? Hmm.. But this time we did go for some shows, which allowed us to rest and get some respite from the hot sun.



Could you tell that I went for the elephant show? For once I'm glad I didn't get the front row seats. The people sitting in front were mercilessly sprayed with the river water by the elephants. Just imagine. The elephants like to roll in the water, and then they suck it up their noses and spray at you. I try not to think about elephants doing their business in the water and elephant snot. You should try not to, too.

This boy's t-shirt read "I'm not allowed to date... unless you're hot". When asked, it was his mum's t-shirt :D I want this t-shirt!!

This boy's so cute--cheeky look and a mop of fine, curly, brown hair. The hula-hoop was taken from him and he remained in that position for a long time, relishing all the laughter and attention :D He's a natural entertainer, that one is!

We tried to rush for the 5pm "Splash!" show, but the show was absolutely packed. We could only look on from the side. There was this little girl who wasn't paying attention to the dolphins, she's probably curious about all those people milling about below her. Kawaii ne!
