08:45 01/09/2013 Waking up after a quick shuteye on the wee hours was always a hurdle on our travel. On this trip we only have less than 24 hours to explore the Lion City. We left the hotel at early dawn and meander the sidewalk of Geylang road where empty bottles of beer and rubbish dotted the pathway. We catch an early bus heading to Lavender station then off to Boon Lay MRT station where the bus goes to Jurong Bird Park is waiting. Still no sign of bus. We gawked on random stalls looking for a food to fill our screaming gut. The warm Mee Hon ( Singaporean style) with hot brewed coffee was perfect pair to lighten up our senses. Bus 194 came in as expected, and boarded the bus off to Jurong Bird Park.
|Couple King Penguins|
Outside of Galleon ship was a pool dedicated for African penguins. This type of penguin had already adopted the tropical climate, and they much enjoyed the warm weather.
Not far from the Macaws, are the vibrant and attractive Caribbean Flamingos. All of them were in a chorus of honking, maybe they felt threatened when someone mimic a predator like sound.
If immobile they usually do preening, of not they’re sprinting on the water to catch some attention.
Kings of the Skies Show
A friendly park staff invited us to watch the Kings of the Skies Show. We’re just right in time after looking for a spot when the show had started.
We settled on the most elevated part of the amphitheater to get a good view of the show.
