Jurong Bird Park & Orchard Road.

I think my blog has way too many pictures already. Haha. Anyways. Went to Jurong Bird Park with the usual photographers on the 10th December! I haven't been to the Bird Park since I was really young, so I don't remember anything about the place except that it contains birds. =D

Took a super long train ride to Boon Lay, then switched to bus 194 to get there. =) Ticket price was rather expensive at $18, but okay la, you definitely get to see lots of birds, and no mosquito bites unlike Sungei Buloh or something. Haha.

First we went to see Penguins! The penguins were kept in an air-conditioned enclosure, probably to simulate the cold climates they orginated from. Lalala. Happy Feet! Hahaha.

GIANT PENGUIN! Thankfully they were frozen stiff. =P

After the penguins we started walking around the park and saw talking birds!

Haha. Spent quite a while trying to make the birds talk. Then the birds wouldn't stop talking! Heh.


Never before seen Gigantic Dancing Parrot!

Went walking around the entire park and seeing lots and lots of birds. Compared to Sungei Buloh, this place was super happening for the birds man. I think it's like metaphorically comparing a Pulau Ubin Chalet to a Ritz Carlton Hotel. Hahaha.

Went to a Playground too! Hahahahaha.

Did stupid things at the playground for a while, then went off to take pictures of more birds.

The bird is sitting on a fence about sitting on a fence.

Hahahaha. The bird at the left side is like obliviously thinking: "Wao Camera!"

"Heh heh heh"

I think we got lots of stares from passer-bys due to Lenson's and Ryan's loooong....lenses.

As we walked past the lake, there was this crazy nutella/chocolate-ly/milo-ey smell in the air. Made me feel like eating nutella. =/ But the edges of the lake was like:

Dunno where the smell came from though. But it was only apparent in the vincinty of the lake.



Bunch of small fish eating a piece of bread! I don't know where the bread came from, but it was floating downstream from the river. Haha.

Had a drink at this cafe. Super expensive stuff due to inflation arising from tourist arrivals to the area. =(

(When you are given a happy surprise)

(And then realise the surprise is nothing much after all)

Lenson's DIY macro lens.

Went to watch this sky eagle bird show thing! Awesome!


Haha. This girl was like sitting in front of us and staring at us take photos. But I made her laugh in the end okay, cause I kept doing stupid faces when taking photos. Heehee.

Went to see Owls after the show! The lady at the souvienir shop in front of the owls was like laughing at us cause we were trying to take photos under UV lighting.

Hurricane lamp! Haha.

Went to Orchard road for dinner, and to take more pictures after that. O.O

Stood in the middle of the road and took pictures like Wan Ting at Little India last time. Everyone was looking la. =\

But never mind Lenson and his long professional camera was there. Hahaha.

Ivan trying to look like a $2 Note.

Lenson's new 50mm Spectacles. =D

Yay okay I'm done. =)
