Enjoying the impuls

This trip to Singapore was decided on a bit of an impuls, since Nathan had a few days off and we thought it would be nice to do something for the kids, as they had been really good all these holidays.

After arriving in Singapore this morning, we changed out of our "airplane clothes" and went straight to the Singapore Zoo. We hadn't been there before and I must say, everything I've heard about this place - is true! It's fantastic!
Walking around the Zoo, you almost feel like you are out in the middle of the jungle, it's so jungly and so green. Everything is so clean and well maintained, and the animals looks like they are very well looked after.
The best part was the monkey enclosure, or rather the non-enclosure. The monkeys in this Zoo are actually swinging around on vines and tree branches right over everybody's heads! They are only kind of enclosed, by water features or "spiked trees", but I'm sure that a very clever monkey would be able to do a big jump out to "freedom"! Not that we saw anyone who even tried, instead they seemed pretty happy just monkeying around (punt totally intended!).

Singapore Zoo is really worth a visit, if you are ever around this part of the world! Unfortunately, no one was really into doing both the Zoo and the Night Safari on the same day, so we will have to save that until next time. Apparently that's super cool too.

Instead, I went to IKEA..! Ha ha! Always a pleasure, obviously!
