Singapore Zoo


One thing I really missed was the zoo. I really really like the Singapore Zoo. The upgraded kids section called Rainforest Kidzworld just made it all the better. One thing that James and I always comment to each other about the Singapore zoo – It feels like we’re walking through the park with animals. It’s built based on a open concept. I got this from the zoo’s website:-


"The Singapore Zoo is a model of the `open zoo’ concept. The animals are kept in spacious, landscaped enclosures, separated from the visitors by dry or wet moats. The moats are concealed with vegetation or dropped below the line of vision. In the case of dangerous animals such as leopards and jaguars which can climb very well, moat barriers are not used. Instead, these animals are housed in beautifully landscaped glass-fronted enclosures. Oppressive cages which typify old zoos, are absent. The end result is a feeling of openness."


So armed with my mum’s corporate card which admits 4 for free, we brought Claire to the zoo! Gin and Wan Lin joined us as well.


We got to see the White Tigers which we missed the last time. Yes, the same tigers that killed a man last year! Ooo but they are so beautiful….



The other thing we did was to feed the giraffes coz Sophie really wanted to feed something. :)



Sophie also got to pat a miniature horse at the Kidzworld but she got a shock when it shook its head. But I think she has a thing for horses.



Most of all, Sophie enjoyed just hanging out with her best friend, Evan. Btw, this is the coolest buggy/stroller/pram for 2 (or in this case, 3) I’ve seen! Eli is on the other side sitting on the pram.
