A visit to Jurong Bird Park

When was the last time you stepped into Jurong Bird Park?

Rachel and I went there one Saturday noon. We had a great time there. We particularly enjoyed seeing Pinky the Penguin again. Rachel met Pinky previously when she was doing an assignment for a story on Jurong Bird Park while I met Pinky during a previous close-door guided tour by the very colourful and friendly PR lady, Ms Pamela Wildheart who has since left the Jurong Bird Park.

We also enjoyed the feeding session at the Lory Loft very much. The lories are not afraid of human contact and will fly really up  close to you to get their food.

Very naughty lory who refused to move towards the food and kept chirping for the food to be brought near it
