I took my kids to Zoo Melaka yesterday. It's kinda impromptu, but the idea just suddenly popped up in my head. After all the weather was bright and sunny.
It's a waste if we just stay at home while the weather was beautiful right. So we went there. Hubby could not join us as he worked but he kindly dropped us at the zoo so i don't need to trouble myself finding a parking space. Thank you, my love! Hee
First, we purchased tickets and bought the zoo map at the counter. The price for adult is RM17.90 and RM7.10 for a child including GST. RM1 for 2 maps. If you want to ride on a tram, it will cost you RM5 for each person separately.
And just before we started, i bought some snacks and drinks at the cafe nearby to make sure the kids's tummy happy.
Then we got to see animals such as rhinos, giraffes, elephants, emu, orang utan, ponies, peacocks, tiger, lions, leopards, monkeys, various type of birds, bear and many more! But most of the animals were taking a nap. Huhu.
Nevertheless the kids were still excited and had fun. They talked about the animals animatedly and read their details from the signboard. Their faces were glowing with smile and laughter though it was a hot day..surprisingly they did not complain much. Thumbs up, guys! :x
But too bad, my phone battery was low hence not many pictures were taken..that's the downside of adhoc plan...:(
Anyway, i'm so glad we made it. It took us about two hours to cover the zoo. We did skipped some animals though, it's the reptile house and missed some animals as well :D
All in all, the zoo now have more animals compare years before. So it was quite satisfying. There are tram service, small cafes around, toilets, a prayer room, and even a playground. So convenient!
My kids still talked about the funny Orang Utan who asked a soda drink from one of the visitors. The visitor was eventually relented and threw it to the Orang Utan after it being sulky ..so clever ok minta simpati, haha.
hopefully it would not give it any harm. The visitor did it just out of pity. It's a hot day and the Orang Utan must have been thirsty. Poor little thing!
Lastly, a visit to the zoo is always entertaining and educating. If you come to Melaka, go visit Zoo Melaka. I'm sure you and your kids will enjoy it as we did. Please wear hats, shades, sport shoes and bring your own drink too as it is quite expensive to buy inside.
Till then, wassalam..
