Fun at Zoo Negara


I find the zoo a lovely place to go. I may be an old woman now, but am still very much a kid at heart, and I love seeing animals. It is a dream someday to really go on a safari if I can... so for now, the closest place that comes to mind is the National Zoo aka Zoo Negara



My little girl has been pestering me on going there as well because she wants to visit Fengyi and Fuwa the two Giant pandas there. And so, I decided to give in to her and the two of us went on out little Zoo-fari ...


Taaa daa.... we are here!!!! The National Zoo is quite close to our place. About 15 minutes away. It is opened from 9am to 5pm. My dear hubby of course, did not want to tag along, but he sent us there after we had a quick breakfast at McDonald's along the Middle Ring Road.


The entrance is RM30 per adult  with MyKad (Malaysian citizen) and RM10 per kid (Malaysian citizen) but to see the pandas, you have to pay extra... so it works out to RM50 per adult and RM20 per kid.


There is an animal show featuring sea lions and macaws at about 11am and 3pm as well at the amphitheatre close to where the penguins and aquarium is , but I gave it a miss this time.

For those lazy to walk, you can get on the tram for RM5 per adult and RM3 per kid (Malaysians)


My little girl and I opted to walk as I thought we could take our own sweet time admiring the animals, enjoying the breeze and scenery as well as certain area where it wasn't quite so pleasant to smell... heheheh....

First stop..... the giraffes.....



Then we have the Malayan tapir....... this tapir is taking it's own sweet time soaking in his pool.... Blissful!!!
