It was the Navy's Family Day, and we were 'asked' to 'participate' in the celebration at the Jurong Bird Park. We met up at around 8+ at JP, and then took the bus over.
As we were walking towards the entrance of the Bird park, we saw some swans on the pond outside, and that's the exact moment i regretted not bringing my camera along.
As we walked in, the first thing we checked out was the Penguins. They were quite cute i must say, and some of them weren't moving, just standing there with their fins(?) outstretched. For a moment there i actually thought they weren't real.. haha.
Ah! Not to mention, some of the penguins were swimming with only one fin, and they were alternating the fin every few seconds... the overall result was.. as you can guess, Cute!
Well after that we went to the main event hall, where we got some breakfast as R(Adm) Ronnie Tay, Chief of Navy gave an opening speech and started off the event.
Tomithy and me decided to just walk around, while some of us stayed behind at the temporary tattoo place, and the rest left straight for JP.
I don't know why they wanted to leave so early. Since we're already here, why not make the most out of it anyways? Jurong Bird Park isn't that bad a place, and besides, they just finished their renovations on August or Sep last year, so its really very new.
We hooked up with a group with a guide, and saw the ostriches, swans, ducks, flamingoes, etc. It was only halfway through the guided tour that i recognised Mr Ronnie Tay in the group, not to mention the Chief of Medical Corps. Phew. Of all the groups, we tagged along the most important one... haha.
After all the bird watching, we went to the Birds of Prey show. Basically all these predators from Hawks to Eagles to Owls, put on a little 'show' for us. It was really nice...
And after that we went back to the Penguin enclosure, since it was their feeding time. I couldn't really catch what the feeder was trying to say since everyone was chatting at the same time. Well, eventually we left and i bought a little penguin, as a belated bday present for Huiyi~
Then went back to the enclosure to see that they were still waiting for their Tattoos... phew.
Eventually they got it, and then we left for JP, and then home. I managed to sneak a few glances at Her again..
Don't remember what i did after that, but it was a tiring day. haha.8th march
I managed to get a half day leave for the day, and also decided to meet Huiyi up to pass her present to her(pass her her present?). I must say, this is the first time i've seen her since years back, and when i saw her i must say i'm a bit shocked. Didn't know her voice sounded so... young.
Anyways, because she didn't want to play pool, eat ice-cream, watch a movie, i decided to sit down at McCafe for a drink, while we chatted a bit. After that, i accompanied her to the bank to get some stuff done, and then i'm off for home.
Today i didn't see Her, but i saw another girl, who reminds me of another girl, who reminds me of.. yea you get the idea, another girl. haha. Sometimes i think i'm seeing twins. Or the same person over and over again.. okay, i must be thinking too much again.
Basically as i tried to sleep at around 3:30, the phone rang every hour, until eventually i gave up and picked up the phone at 7:30. It was my grandpa reminding me to buy extra food for dad.
It was also today that i decided to try Ooshi pizza. Their medium pizza cost 29.50, while their Ooshi pizza combo consisting of a medium pizza, 3x chicken wings, 1x salad and 1x Tofu. However, because they were out of salads and Tofus, we changed them to Croquettes instead.
I must say, their Chicken ham & Shitake pizza wasn't that good. Bleh. But at least its not tasteless like a certain Canadian Pizza...
After that i chatted with a few people, including a new friend tonight by the name of Ling Jie~
We chatted til 1, then i left her to weiquan... ~~
