My Day at Singapore Zoo

Sis and I went to the zoo last weekend. I have always loved going to the zoo, even though I often end up walking a lot and perspiring, As you can tell, I am not an exercise kind of person, but anything for the animals.

Before going to the zoo, we went to Nara Thai @ Westgate for lunch. The food there is decent but portions of main dishes are rather small.

Green Mango Salad with Prawns ($12.90). I loved how colourful the salad was, but not chunkiness of the slices of mango. The salad could also use some dried shrimps and shallots.

Stir-fried Minced Chicken with Chilli & Hot Basil ($12.90), served with steamed Jasmine rice. While the basil chicken was flavourful, it was not spicy enough for me.

Green Curry with Chicken ($13.90). Sis found the curry too sweet for a savoury dish.

And for your information, they started charging for iced water since 1 December 2014. It is 50 cents a glass and refillable. I find it ridiculous when restaurants charge for plain water.

We headed to the zoo immediately after lunch. It was not as crowded as I would expect, seeing that it was a weekend.

I was pretty sad that I missed my favourite show ‘Rainforest Fights Back’, which starts at 12.30pm and 2.30pm daily. It is a short but entertaining presentation, showcasing the rich and diverse wildlife of the rainforest. I kept assuming that there was a show at 4pm and took my time walking around the various enclosures first.

Here are some shots I took that day:
