Trip to the Zoo!

Hee...the title kinda reminds u of the essay topics we used to get in primary sch, yeah? and some of u might think, "huh?! go zoo for wat?" but before u decide to dismiss the idea of visiting the Singapore Zoological Gardens, read on.

Me went to the zoo last saturday, and boy was i impressed! but it's no wonder - the singapore zoo is ranked among the best in the world. first of all, it's HUGE! walked the whole afternoon (starting from about 1) and almost didn't finish touring the place before it's closing time at 6pm. And there was so much to see, so much to hear, so much to learn! well, ok. who am i kidding right, if u ask me what i learnt from my trip...eh, i don't think i can tell u much...oh! but i do know that chimpanzees are dangerous yet clever creatures, and that penguins have bones that are denser than other birds so that they can dive and swim underwater...and check this out.
















cool rite? bet u didn't know that! (well if u did, good for you! u can go be a...erm, zoologist?)

but the point is, once u've visited the zoo, at least for me, i've learnt to appreciate life in all forms. We humans tend to think we're the most intelligent and beautiful, but look at the vast world of nature...there are so many other creatures that are wonderful in their own ways, and i've attained a new found respect for each and every one of them...every single living organism exists for a reason...each life form is precious.


not trying to preach here, but i'm reminded of a beautiful old English hymn:

All things bright and beautiful
All creatures great and small
All things wise and wonderful
The Lord God made them all

-Cecil Alexander, 1848

So why do some choose not to value their lives? And why do humans kill their own kind for selfish purposes? sigh...is this getting depressing? just in one of my pensive moods...esp after the London bombing...it scares and sickens me to know that people actually think they're justified to kill in the name of religion...which religion ever advocated brutally taking the lives of others, especially the innocent?

well...on a happier note, since i'm on the topic of my happy zoo trip, here's a happy picture!





















u know, i kinda envy the animals in the zoo...everyday is carefree and simple, nothing to worry about...food is provided and lodging is world class yet natural...but then again, i wouldn't wanna live in captivity...

okies enuff about the zoo trip.

went to ntu with mr cruz last monday...gosh i feel so old! haha. but it was reallie fun to visit my alma mater...brought back memories of the good old school days. esp the crazy days of orientation! getting all wet and dirty, playing silly games, getting to know everyone...haha. thanks to ntu for inviting us!

saw lynette's comments on me taggie board...hmm...altho i'm alwiz nice (haha, almost...or at least i try to be), just wanna say to u: what's ur problem?? u sure sound like a real uncouth gal to me, with all those vulgarities coming from u. or maybe u're really a guy who has no guts to use ur own identity? please, go tag on a blog where pple speak ur language. the pleasant folks here do not wish to be disturbed. (that's a euphemism for "go away / get lost!")

oops. i wasn't very nice there was i? oh well, i couldn't stand it anymore. :)
