Manila Zoo

May 1 was family day for us. We went to Manila Zoo and had a really good time. We were surprised at all the improvements, especially since I haven't been there since I was in grade school. Manila Zoo needs even more improvements since the state of the elephant, monkeys, and some horses are abysmal but at least it is improving. There is hope yet. ^_^

I'm thinking we should go out on such family trips more often. Great for quality time. Great for Sam. Great for our local economy. ^_^

Arrival
Tiger

Llama and kittens. The funny cats were all over the place.

A happy Papa Mark and Sam.
Horseback riding. Php 60 only for one round. Sulit!

Inside the Kinder (petting) Zoo. Additional Php 40 entrance fee. Mas sulit!

The ugly ostrich. A chance for me to face my fears. It didn't work.
The other ostrich chased me! Buti di pinalabas ng cage yun!

Cute boa.

Aww.

Parrots. The ones out front pecked Sam's fingers. He loved it!

Time to go home.

Nik - Di wag mo touch. Pwede naman tingin lang noh. :p Besides it might be time for you to start pushing your boundaries with the creatures thing. Advice lang wag ka lalapit sa ostrich. The rest super bait naman.

Gel - Oo nga eh. Super nakaktuwa si Sam babalik kami dun soon kasi enjoy nya. Whoever wants to go with us leave a comment so I can text you. Outing!

Ate - Grabe nahilo nga ako sa takot eh. Si Myla and Mark lang kasama tuloy sa picture. Makita ko ba naman nasa likod ko na akala ko malayo pa! Kakaloka. Worse than chickens and laki laki pa naman. Waaah. Eeeeeeuuurrgggghhhh.

Nica - We did. ^_^

Kei - Cute talaga kami. Wahehe. Seriously though di nakakatakot animals. Sama kayo ni Nik samin next time ha. Will text people mga two weeks in advance siguro para makasama kayo ^_^
