We're going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo!

Grandparents!
 Brought grandparents and Auntie to the Zoo today! They've been wanting to see the Pandas ever since they heard about them, so I took a day off and brought them to the Zoo!

Checking out the timings for panda viewing
Tickets are at $20/adult, $10/senior citizen, addition of  $5/pax for unlimited tram rides, and an additional $5/pax for a 15min viewing of the giant pandas.

About the Pandas... Each viewing slot is 15mins, at $5/pax, maximum of 200 people per slot. You have to get there 5mins before the scheduled time to queue up, to walk in to the gallery/forest, check your tickets and give you a brief intro. The thing is, Singaporeans love queuing. Seriously, they started queuing like 10-15mins beforehand. I was prepared to do all the queuing anyway because my grandparents can't walk/stand for long.

Entrance to the Giant Panda Forest
Finally got in! Haha. It was a visitor's birthday so everyone sang him a birthday song. You get free entrance to the Zoo on your birthday!

Red Panda
Grandparents were wondering if there will be any red pandas in there too, because everytime they saw a panda in China's zoo, there was always an enclosure of red pandas nearby! And there they were! 2 red pandas! I think I love them more than the pandas themselves. So much furrier, cuter, more active.

Panda! (don't know which one)
Everyone was clamoring to see the pandas. So crowded. Haha. One of them was awake and pacing about, while the other slept.

Sleeping Panda

Pensive Panda. 

Grandparents and Auntie!
Took the tram around the Zoo. Stopped to take a walk in the rainforest trail. It's cooling, so grandparents wouldn't be too warm.

Lemur!

Mousedeer!
The mousedeer is so small! I think I scared it by going so close. HAHA

Grandma and a parrot!

:D

Grandparents and the white tiger!
Haha I had fun bringing them around. We left the zoo at about 1-2pm? Didn't walk much of the zoo, only saw the stuff Grandparents wanted to see. Hahaha. =D Fun day!
