Teachers' Day Promotion

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, September 05, 2009
Every year so far, there has been Teachers' Day Promotion. Last year, all the teachers could ride the Singapore Flyer for free and for this year, we could go to the zoo, Bird park and Night Safari for free. Non-teachers accompanying were given a 20% discount. So we made use of this opportunity to bring the whole family to the Night Safari since it has been ages since I last went and the kids havent been to that before.


When we first arrived, I was taken aback by the loooong queue. I blamed myself for not pre-empting it by coming early. Why didnt I think that this would have happened? Probably because last year's Singapore flyer had absolutely NO queue! haha..



We queued for an hour long before we could enter. During that time,I was glad we were entertained by dancers, fire blowers etc...and not to forget, my kids were also part of the entertainment. Those who were in front of me and behind me were amused by both my kids. They even came up to me and talked to me about them. Oh gosh...

All in all, I didnt really like Night Safari, as I did before. I felt it was too dark. I even have problems squinting my eyes to see where I was going. Probably because I took the tram the last time, but it was way too expensive for so many of us, so we walked instead.


And I didnt remember the opening hours to be so late (7:30pm). So the kids were feeling sleepy right at the end of it all and the "creatures of the night" show was so crowded that we had to wait for the last show which was 1030pm.

Wouldnt come back here again unless there is more interesting exhibits or if they offer me free entries for the whole family!
