Singapore River Safari
We needed to get out and about today. I had been off to Malaysia for work for a couple of days on Thu/Fri, so time to have some family fun. Jude was going on about Bird Park, which was great idea. But then Amy and I had another thought. Jude loves watching National Geographic with me. He loves watching about fish and animals. How about Singapore River Safari. He has only been there once when he was one month old. I showed him some pictures and a video and he was hooked (excuse the pun), so off we went to see if this place had got any better that the last time we visited.
Maybe just because it was close to Chinese New Year, but it was pretty good today. No queueing for anything. The River Quest is still pretty shit in my reckoning as they seem to hide all the animals away, and you just look at hedge. Boring. And you have to pay additional for it too, which I think is a rip-off. Anyway the day was great today. I was so so surprised with Jude, he was transfixed with the fish and animals, and was continually running to see the next and the next. He is so mine. He reminds me of me when little being shown round zoos by my Mum, Nan and Grandad. Exactly the same. Well done Singapore River Safari, you made a three year old and his Mum & Dad VERY happy today.
Sadly no Ollie with us this weekend as he has started his very own “Under Pressure” experience. Pop down to I12 for a Nando’s and you’ll find a new member of staff working there now. So my Mary, Amy and Jude were the explorers today.
Off we go – Singapore River Safari, but 2017, 3 years since the first time.
Next came a MAJOR surprise for me. Something I have never ever seen in my 48+ years. We were standing watching the monkeys. So very cute. A little baby etc. playing, the occasional fight and chase. But then… then something I have never witnessed happened, and I was able to capture it all on film. I’ll apologise for the quality, but the photos have been taken through very thick glass. But you get the idea. I was STUNNED, and that does not happen very often. Mother nature…
A lovely day at Singapore River Safari.
