WELCOME TO ZOO-ASIA.
We came in a tad bit late in the afternoon and thank goodness the park wasn't so huge or else we wouldn't have been able to see all the animals! As you can see from the photos above, the park consisted with a lot of exotic birds and monkeys -- funky creatures, those monkeys are by the way. So funky were they, that I ended up buying a new lovely creature of a keychain.
But oh, I was so ecstatic about the tiger. It was absolutely beautiful! There were like 4 of them, just chillin' and I wanted to be like Princess Jasmine in that moment and own one too! Someday... Bummer that I couldn't get a close-up because tigers are naturally dangerous hence the magnanimous distance between creature and audience. Grr.
There was a polar bear in the area but... it wanted to hide in it's cave instead of show itself. I did get a glimpse of it though, like teeny-bit. And no, unfortunately, there weren't any pandas in the park. I therefore intend to find another zoo where the pandas are.
Honestly though, I kind of felt bad that the animals were locked up behind bars -- mostly the monkeys and the birds. The tigers, lions and other big animals had their own acre of land to run around in. So it was kind of unfair and I felt a bit depressed about the whole thing. But they just had to be behind bars for safety purposes. And besides... imagine if there weren't any bars to keep us apart? The monkeys would go pick on our hair and bite our necks.
All in all, this was a really happy day for me. I was like prancing around the park with huge grin on my face -- like an idiot child who just won an Emmy. Or something.
Mother dearest doesn't get why I am so into these creatures -- she's more of a botanical expert, you see. Vice versa, I'm not so into the whole plant thing, though I appreciate their own beauty. And I just have to tell you that the reason I am so in love with all these animals is because they are so funky. Like no other. They're so out-of-this-world, just look at my photos. Beautiful, all of them. It's like, we're so caught up with our own human world that we completely don't notice that there are other creatures living amongst us.
NOTICE THEM. AND CARE ABOUT THEM. STOP GOING TO AFRICA TO SHOOT THEM DOWN FOR YOUR WALLS OR FOR YOUR VANITY.
ANIMAL WELFARE, COME ON, YO!
Yeah. I'm addicted to animals. Don't kill me.
