After visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Japan last February, this might be my favorite trip yet. I mean, I saw a polar bear. A POLAR BEAR. AGHHHH the cuteness!!

The Singapore Zoo is known as the world’s best rainforest zoo.

We went to the zoo for Nunki (whose favorite animal is the giraffe) and as I am a big animal lover, I was happy to visit the Singapore Zoo because of how well they treat the animals.

All throughout the 69-acre grounds were signs to enlighten tourists about animal cruelty and the illegal buying of exotic animals.

I realized I had been to this zoo before with my family, except we went at night time for the Night Safari tour. Seeing the animals in the day time and by foot made me feel like more of an explorer!

I actually did some research because I was skeptic about how they kept these huge, dangerous animals in cage-less confinements. “They probably have invisible electric fields that shock the animals!!! THAT’S SO MEAN!!!” Well, apparently that’s not the case.

Animals are kept in spacious, landscaped enclosures separated from the visitors by either dry or wet moats. The moats are concealed with vegetation or dropped below the line of vision. Dangerous animals that can climb well are housed in landscaped glass-fronted enclosures. (via Wikipedia)

After a wonderful day at the zoo, we all went back to the hotel and showered before celebrating papa Gerry’s 59th birthday at Mario Batali’s restaurant, Osteria Mozza. Most of the staff are Filipino, by the way! Yay!

    I love SG Zoo! 3/5 of my SG pics were probably from there, it was my favorite even if it rained when we went there and a lot of the animals were already sleepy. Like you, I was amazed at how well they were taken care of, which is in sharp contrast to our own zoos. Made me open my mind a bit about zoos–if they can be this nice and almost like their natural habitat, maybe it’s better than being hunted in the wild.

    When we where there we saw these turtle who kept bumping into the other turtle’s butt rather aggressively. I guess the other one got really fed up and suddenly ran super fast away from his attacker! Our jaws dropped talaga, we’ve never seen a turtle move that fast! Scam lang pala na mabagal sila hahaha!

    Your photos are awesome. This is my favorite photo from my SG trip: https://instagram.com/p/x9ponZnvDs/ <3 I'm planning to go back this November.
