Wow.. time sure flies. It's our last day and we woke up early to say bye-bye to Ee Poh and Teo Kong before they went to work. Also our flight was at 11am, so we had to get ready and head to the airport. We chatted with Ee Poh while Toe Kong got ready for work. You kept telling Ee Poh "We're going to the airport a-ginnn" and kept repeating the "a-ginnn" word. Haha..

So we had breakfast and Aunty Connie helped call us a taxi which came 5 minutes later. They sure are efficient there. Thankfully you sat (rather) quietly throughout the whole trip to the city and we headed to Ah Ma's room. When everyone arrived, we headed to VivoCity. Looked around, bought some stuff and even went to Toys R Us. It was so crowded and the queue to pay was so long. So gave up and since Aunty May wasn't feeling well, we left. We wanted to go back to rest but since you said that you weren't tired, we headed to Tanglin Mall (if I recall correctly) for tea. You had ice-cream while the ladies had some Chinese desserts. Yummy. Before we left, you managed to see Strawberry Shortcake make an appearance.

What will we see at the zoo? What will we see at the zoo-zee-zoo?
And that's what is sung in your Barney DVD that you have. When asked this question, you'd say: nai-yan (lion), monkey and tiger. Sometimes you'll also say gi-yaff and zebra. We hoped you'd like the zoo as much as we did when we visited the zoos when we were studying.
We woke up early in hope of spending a lot of time at the zoo. So by 8.30am we were ready. But er... your uncles (Julian and Ashley) were not up yet. So we watched TV while waiting for them to get ready. At last we packed into Teo Kong's car and headed for brunch The Prata Place. The Sinagpore Zoo is actually very nearby to Ee Poh's house. Mummy ordered some banana prate for you, but you weren't too interested. Instead, you downed all my Milo so i had to order another one. After breakfast we headed to the zoo.
Goodness me, it was crowded! I guess with it being a Sunday and a school holiday, the zoo was one of the places to be with children. So while Teo Kong queued for the tickets daddy went to see if he could rent a stroller. We didn't want to bring your stroller along from Penang since we've experienced MANY occasions where you refused to sit in the stroller. Daddy said he managed to get the last stroller available for rent. While waiting for Teo Kong to buy the tickets (it was a VERY long queue) mummy pushed you around in the stroller which you were keen to sit in (very much to our surprise).
At long last our tickets were bought and in we went to the zoo. The first stop (for everyone entering..) was a place where you could take a photograph with the parrots. We just stopped to look for a while before heading to look for the crocodiles. Daddy wanted to take you out of the stroller to have a better look at the crocodile but shortly after lifting you out of the stroller, you insisted to be placed back in. Ok.. looks like you've taken a liking to the stroller.
We stopped and looked at many animals, including the kangaroo and monkeys and the white tiger, and stopped for a drink before you decided that you'd had enough of the stroller. That was when you got daddy very angry. You wanted to push the stroller and the zoo tram was moving on the road. Try as I could, I could not convince you to get back into the stroller. In the end, we had to force you into the stroller (which included a lot of wailing and crying from you) and pushed you towards where there was an elephant show. We rested a while while looking at the elephants. After that we walked a little more but seems like everyone was getting tired. In the end, we headed towards the nearest tram stop and hopped on to the tram for a ride to rest our weary legs. WE hopped off at one of the stops since it was feeding time for the polar bear. But it was so very crowded and by the time we arrived, the polar bear had eating. So back we went onto the next tram and took another round until we came to the stop near the orang utans. On one of the tram ride there was a nice man who even shared his son's KFC nugget with you.
We walked and looked at all the giant cats: lion, cheetah, leopard. Enjoyed the beautiful flowers hopped onto the tram again to head towards the nearest exit. By then it was already 2.30pm and we needed to rest before our dinner. It started to drizzle a little, so it was perfect timing that we'd decided to go off. Before that we headed to have some tea since we only had brunch. Instead of eating, you fell asleep on the way to brunch and only woke up after we finished. So we went home to get ready but before that, Aunty Connie made you some bread and Milo.

Soon it was time to board and as expected, you refused to sit on your own seat. Nevermind.. the plane was not taking off yet and it was very hot inside the plane. At long last we took off and I managed to convince you to sit in your place as we took off. Lunch was served and you had fried rice. In fact, it was a full course with jelly and juice (which you didn't want) and also plain water. After that you ate some of the Smarties that was in my bag (which caused my handbag to be scanned twice!). You got a bit upset as you finished all the chocolate and dropped one pink one on the floor.
