Kids day out at Singapore Zoo

The Singapore Zoo is one educational and fun place that I won’t mind returning to every year or so. It’s big, the kids gets lots of place to explore, we are surrounded by nature and there’s always lots of interesting things to see and we never manage to see everything in a single trip.

This year we are back on a playdate with four boys. All the boys want to go to the water playground and we mums readily agree. The playground is almost at the end of the park and we will pass by most exhibits on the way.

Otters and Hippos

Watching the   Otters being fed and interacting among themselves can be very entertaining.  The kids are amuse. While we are at it, we learned some interesting facts of the animal from the many info graphics.
