Matty & I spent the third day of our trip at the Singapore Zoo. The zoo is surrounded by a thick rainforest. It was really lush & beautiful. Macaques & orangutans have 'free reign' of the zoo. You can look up at any time & see them above you. Neat!!

Head of a mouse, body of a deer & about the size of a small dog. Interesting.
My favorites were the giraffes. They were so beautiful. The Singapore Zoo has certain times of day where visitors can pay $5 to feed different animals: giraffes, elephants, manatees, kangaroos & white rhinos. We arrived just in time to feed the giraffes & I was NOT going to miss out on this opportunity! We were third in line & so excited.
|The absolute highlight of my day!|
The only sad part was it went by too fast. I would have loved for it to have lasted several minutes.
Matty brought his GoPro camera along & filmed our feeding adventure. So glad he did!☺
They were so stinkin' adorable!!!
|These flowers were super soft. So pretty too!|
|Need a potty break? I was a little freaked out by this toilet.|
Thankfully, the other toilets in the bathroom were 'westernized.'☺
Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. I read that approximately upwards of $18 million dollars worth of gold was donated by followers around the world for use in this specific temple.
There is a dress code to visit: no shorts, miniskirts or short sleeved shirts. No problem! Volunteers pass out shawls & sarongs to visitors who don't come properly dressed (such as myself!).☺
|Finally presentable & able to enter the temple.☺|

These were maybe 3" tall.
