River Safari, river cruising, Singapore.

River safari,river cruise on brilliant Saturday. Well, to be honest we didn’t quite had the best weather in the morning. In fact, it was raining so heavily me and Mary had to resched our River Safari session to the late afternoon so we grab a cake and some tea in this pastry shop in Ang Mo Kio while waiting for the rain to stop.
Yuki: You know, I think I might have jinx the weather, posted something along the lines of hey,  bring on the drizzle coz I’ve got a hat and I’m not afraid of a little rain.
Mary: It’s pouring cats and dogs now =.=
So note to self: Never, ever be stupid enough to say the slightest comment about the weather even if you are decked out in a full rainy day ensemble.
前个礼拜我和M就说好了要去新加坡动物园走看看了,我一听到我们要去游船了,特别开心。当天早上还看到天有点黑,想说穿个帽子就不怕雨了,结果天也就来个倾盆大雨,弄得我们两个特别狼狈,还得在AMK吃蛋糕避雨了(以后再也不敢乱挑战天气了,想都不能想)

But lucky for us, the rain eventually stop and even better coz it also washed away all the afternoon heat! Caught a bus(Bus 138) from Ang Mo Kio(NS16)
还好天气对我们还算好,过了一阵子就停雨了,而且还很棒的是天气一点也不热了。

It was quite abit of a last minute decision so we didn’t had the time to prebook our tickets online. So if you are planning to head to the River Safari, do make sure you prebuy your tickets here (Link)
对有兴趣要去动物园的朋友,记得先上网预购你的票了,有折扣哦(Link)

Ready? yup ready!

I wore my bad hair day hat and also threw on the most comfy outfit for a river safari. I was actually quite worried about the mosquitos but lucky for us it wasn’t much to worry about to begin with. Even for a person like me who gets bitten so much, I didn’t had to attempt to even kill a mozz throughout the whole trip!
先来个穿着照吧

It was actually a really really wet day so I’m really glad I pulled out these boots I got from Bugis. Even more surprised because they were so comfy to wear and they only costed me about SGD$10! Perfect for this rainy weather. Only problem was that they were so high up they make me look extra short in photos but I guess I can always worry about looking tall next round)
其实天气真的很湿很湿,所以很庆幸自己穿了这双靴子。买的时候真的好便宜,才10新币也!而且也不打脚,特别舒服,唯一的坏处是靴子盖过脚裸了,照片显得自己特别特别矮(本来也就没有很高了),其实真人也真的有点矮了哈哈哈

The weather was so lovely after the rain, and seeing all these greens just really excite us even more for our little adventure!

Honestly, I wasn’t quite thinking right when I was at the counter. When I asked what were the major attractions for animals in the River Safari, the sales assistant told me that they have pandas, jaguars and also even underwater animals at their flooded amazon. I guess I was so used to seeing mock ups of the animal at places I actually asked her whether the animals in the zoo were all alive and real =.=
Let’s see some of my fav animals of the day!
Duckies!
可能自己真的看过太多模型动物了,在买票的时候竟然问了售货员里边的动物都是真的而不是模型了吧。现在想回,觉得自己真的好白痴啊

I know alot of people are more excited about seeing the Pandas( Jia Jia and Kai Kai) but I was actually really much happier seeing these cute little red pandas!
可是最开心的是看到红熊猫了。其实我对熊猫不会特别迷,是真的好可爱了,可是觉得他们好重,可以随时压死我了,我还有点怕了呢!可是红熊猫(其实也不知道翻译对不对,我是直接用英文翻译出来的)就不同说了,你也太可爱了吧!

Yup, we even saw beavers.

So the River Safari has this short little river quest that requires you to pay an extra $5  for the ride. Me and Mary were quite excited to see some other animals ( actually we just wanted to go on a boat ride) so we happily paid and hah our luck! NO QUEUE! It must be because of the rain the crowd that was there on that day was alot lesser than usual!
其实最兴奋的还是游船啦,当天真的很幸运了,因为下雨,所以都没有很多人,就可以不用排队了!

It was actually quite a good feeling to sit too after the long walks at the zoo haha. Note to people who wants to take a good photos of the animals, I know sitting at the front of the boat might seem like a good idea but trust me, it’s not. You are going to get wet so if you camera is not waterproof and being splashed by water is not quite your idea of a good afternoon at the River Safari, don’t sit at the front of the boat!
要拍照的人要注意了,如果做船头,会湿哦,所以如果本是不是很想湿湿的,也不想换新相机,可能可以考虑不坐船头了

On the river quest we saw jaguars, pink flamingos and other animals but my fav would have to the be the scarlet Ibis. Look at how cute they are and they are in shocking red!
其实里边还蛮多平时很少看到的动物了。还看到豹,可是最吸引我的注意力的还是这红色的小动物了

That’s it for my little afternoon river cruise adventure but here’s a map of the park so you can get a better idea

And so that concluded our trip and me and Mary ended up at Ippudo Ramen for some nice hot ramen to end the cold rainy day.

To those who are having their day offs in Malaysia,
Happy Holidays
