The last time we went, I was 7 months pregnant with Daria. So, yesterday I told hubby, we should go again. Actually, it was more of my guilty conscious speaking as I had been so busy with work and classes, that I hadn't spent much time with the girls.
We initially planned to head out from home early but since everyone woke up late, we stepped out at around 10.30am. Dania and Dina were excited; they still remembered the last trip fondly. Daria was just happy to go anywhere...hee.
While En Rashid went to park the car, I bought the tickets at the ticket counter. FYI, the ticket prices had doubled since the last time we were there. For MyKad holders, adult tickets cost RM20 while children tickets were RM10. Fortunately they still had the JCard discount, so we saved RM5 there. Also Daria got in for free coz she was under 2 years old.
Monologue for the parrots in the picture:
Parrot 3: I'm sorry honey, for nagging at you. Let's make up.
Parrot 4: No, no, it's my fault. I've been neglecting you. Let me kiss you and make you feel better.
Parrot 2: Auuwww...you guys made up!!
Parrot 1: Good god!! Get a room, will ya!
The bird show was somewhat similar to what we had seen last time, but with a few added tricks. The girls still loved it though and even Daria sat still throughout the entire performance. She was very impressed with the eagles, especially when Dania got to volunteer for the meat-on-a-stick trick.
Dania got to do the trick twice since the first time, the eagle just knocked the piece of meat off the stick. I was so excited for her, I forgot to switch the camera mode to video. Bummer!
After all that walking and feeding the birds, we were getting pretty famished ourselves. We decided to try our the Hornbill Restaurant.
The parrot was surprisingly heavy so after a few shots, my arm was kind of feeling it. Or maybe its just my "muscles" contracting due to not being worked out for so long...muahahah...
The food could have been better and I was dismayed to see some of the tourists there being very aggressive and provoked the birds. Better supervision should be given to discourage such acts. However, it was still a nice family outing. Maybe we'll go there again in a few years time.
