But all of these were not as fun as FEEDING THE BIRDS!!! There were a few funny moments during the feeding time, but sadly they were not caught on the videos below. *sad*
They fed the Ostriches!
Binbin had a shock at the strength of the female ostrich, when she ‘snatched‘ the banana from his hand. His facial expression was so funny! It was as if a giantic poo landed at his feet! *huge laugh* After that, he dare not feed the ostriches anymore… So sad, his funny expression was not caught on tape… *pout*
Check out the steady-boom-beep-beep Keatkeat feeding the male ostrich in the video below:
They fed the Pelicans too!
There was also another place where the kids could feed smaller birds, but they did not want to because the birds were TOO INTIMATE! *laugh*
The birds were all over the bodies of whoever that holds the cup of watery bird food. Even when there were no food on the lady’s head (below), the bird still stood on it. *giggle*
The kids did not want that to happen, lest the bird leaves a smelly souvenir on their head. *laugh*
So my kids merely stood a distance away from the ‘loving‘ birds for some photos-taking.
"My Soft Toy Parrot wants to Talk To You!"
Just like the Singapore Zoological Gardens, the Singapore Jurong Bird Park now has a water-playground too! The Singapore Jurong Bird Park calls it the ‘Birdz of Play‘.
What disappointed me was the price for the ‘Lunch with Parrots‘. Yes, I was expecting it to be on the high side, but I did not expect it to be that high:
We were definitely not ready to spend $68 for a lunch, so the boys ended up with a $5.50 hotdog bun as their noon meal.
We did not visit every section of the Singapore Jurong Bird Park because there were occasions when we were ‘hiding‘ away from the rain and the kids were so engrossed with the fake fossils discovery. They had so much fun sweeping the sand, we ended up resting under that shelter for many minutes.
The Ostrich was Peeping at Them while They were Busy Sweeping Sand.
Other birds we saw at the Singapore Jurong Bird Park which halted our footsteps:
What made my heart took flight in the Singapore Jurong Bird Park was my children’s willingness to hold bags, without complaining about tiredness, nor complaining about getting wet in the rain, nor complaining about melting in their perspiration. *Thumbs Up*
We remembered the last time we brought them to the Singapore Zoological Gardens, Binbin was still so young and he fell asleep when our exploration trip was not done yet, and Allan had to carry him and walked under the hot sun….
So to reward them, we grabbed the Buy One Get One Free promotion and bought two sets of $15 per set Soft Toys for my 6 year old and 8 year old. *smile*
Will we go back to Singapore Jurong Bird Park again? High Chance! But not in the near future that is….*wink*
