A Day at the Zoo - 1st Sept 2011

We really did quite a bit of outing during the recent long MerdekaRaya holiday.

Shopping - checked but will do it again and again, be it holiday or not.
Movies - checked.
Food hunting - ongoing but checked.

Since we have done almost everything, DH said we should visit the zoo, AGAIN! This is Isabelle's second trip. But I do agree that at her current age, it does make a lot more sense to her. The animals look more familiar and she can relate to them more now than the first time we brought her there.

I woke up a little earlier to prepare our zoo breakfast. Mashed hard boiled eggs (with raisins & sundried tomatoes strips) to go with buns and iced coffee.

Breakfast gone

I was extremely hungry when we reached the zoo. Stopped at the air-conditioned rest hut for food therapy. Home made breakfast in a cool room on a warm and not so cool morning with the view of a pond filled with storks and pelicans. Sounds awesome? Apparently, not really when you have a happy and active toddler running like mad around you. Isabelle was excited and she was running everywhere and suddenly bump into me when I was holding a cup with my beloved iced coffee. The coffee splashed onto my white tee. And it was just the beginning of our day at the zoo and I don't have any spare tee with me. ARGH!

I braved myself and continued our zoo excursion with a coffee stained tee and smelling so very caffeiney. I am glad I did not let my frustration take over the situation because we did had a really good time. Yeah, it was a very hot day and all but when I know our little one is happy, everything else don't seems to matter.

Here's some shots from our adventure :)

Wah, so nice! I've never taken my kids to the KL Zoo. But my boy has been there on a field trip with his school. I like Taiping Zoo better actually but I haven't been to KL Zoo for so long already, it might be better now.
Hope you could get the coffee stain off your white tee!

Germaine ~ I am just the opposite! Have not brought Isabelle to Tpg Zoo and I have not been there for a very long time. And thank God the stain came off completely!

Alison ~ Yes it was a lot of fun!!

Carolyn ~ Yes the eggs was for our breakfast. I ran out of sausages for my normal mashed hard boiled eggs. So I used raisin and those tomatoes instead :)
