We spent our National Day morning getting to know the residents at The Animal Resort.
1) Puppies so excited to see people, they were yelping and leaping with joy in their kennels. These puppies are for sale.
2) This dog was so sleepy, he barely noticed Javier who was banging his little fist on the window right beside it. I think Javier just wanted to say hello.
3) Vera feeding a carrot to a hungry rabbit
4) Animal feed can be purchased at the cafe – $1 per pack or $2 for 3 packs
5) I nearly did a double-take when I saw this black and white bunny. It was huge.
6) Geese wandered freely across the farm. They roamed in flocks and made loud honking noises. Vera and Javier were pretty taken by them.
7) Daddy and Javier taking a picture with the resident horse, the only one on the farm.
8) This horse gave my friend a “friendly chomp” on her arm, as if testing to see if it was edible or not. Later on we were told that the horse did not like people to pat or stroke its head (which everyone was doing), thus it was probably expressing resentment.
9) Here’s little Javier getting his fingers in the dirt. He managed to get some into his mouth when we weren’t looking. Tsk.
10) Godpa and Vera watching the geese from afar.
11) Here’s the crown crane, a rather shy bird. If we walked too briskly toward it, it would turn and walk away in a slow and dignified manner.
12) Shadow of a palm tree on the ground.
After an hour or so of roaming the farm grounds and observing the animals, we headed home to rest. In the evening, we gathered again, this time in front of the telly. As all the participants in the National Day Parade took centrestage, our littlest one also tried to get into the limelight, showing off his new badminton racket (courtesy of godma).
We had a good national day. I hope you did too?
