A day at Jurong Bird Park

We actually went to the bird park last Thursday.  My sister took a day off and we took the rented car to Singapore Jurong Bird Park.  Its a 20 to 30mins drive from our place.  So along the way, Boy boy actually fell asleep.

At the entrance, we bought the park hopper tickets for the upcoming Zoo trip too.  (Save some moola) Services at the park is pretty good.  There are actually electic scooters, wagons and strollers for rental.  We rented a stroller (yes, I'm using one even though I'm anti strollers...:P) and placed ah boy in it.  He slept for about 15 mins in the stroller while we plan how we are going to conquer this huge park.

As we reached there at around 1130am.  Its only 1 and half hour before the children's parrot show starts near the entrance.  So we decided to just stroll around the area and catch the show before venturing furthur into the park.  So we took photos of the family with the flamingos, parrots and around the pretty gardens around the area.  Price for the family shoot is pretty steep.. bloody $20 for the 8x10 photo.  (Daylight Robbery!)  We did it anyway as both the kids want to grab hold of the birds.

The bird show started on time and the kids loved the parrots perfoming tricks and stunts :)  Boy was truly attracted to the colourful birds.  

Later we just took the monorail and visit the African waterfall... (bloody fake)  And we just slowly stroll back to the entrance.  At this point,  girl girl is the one sitting in the stroller while my mum pushes her.  Girl actually wanted Grandma to push her faster and so the 2 of them started a small demolition derby... kena scolded by me :P hehehe.

We did not visit the Dory Avairy which is a shame but the 2 kids are already a bit tired from all the walking.  Left the place at around  3.30pm.  Just nice for the 1 and a half year old boy.  The kids slept on the car while I drove back.  Pretty fun but bloody tiring trip.  Click here to view the rest of the photos.
