Day 5...

Another great start to the day with breakfast at the hotel. Everything is so well set out and organised. There is plenty of food to choose from or you can even get the chef to cook a fresh omelette or some French toast.
We have decided to take a taxi to the Jurong Bird Park. It’s about ½ hour away from our hotel and the taxi rides are cheap here.


What a lovely place it is with such a great variety of bird life. There are over 4,600 birds across 380 species and the park is one of the world’s best in the conservation and display of birds in its natural settings.
We sit down to watch the Birds of Prey Show. Eagles, falcons and hawks are let loose to show their natural predatory instincts in simulated hunt. What a wonderful sight, hope the photos come out ok. Then onto the African Waterfall Aviary with its man made waterfall, the Lory Loft and finally catching the end of the Birds and Buddies show. It seems like we have been walking for miles, looking over this amazing place and it is now time to catch a taxi back to the hotel.



Some quiet moments spent in our room, looking over the photos I took, some did not come out as well as I hoped. Never mind.
We again take a leisurely walk down to Clarke Quay; it is such a lovely area by the river with plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from. A little further and we again end up in Chinatown. After another good look around and spending some money, we go back to our favourite little Chinese man on Temple St for our $5 plate of noodles and seafood, Richard even tries out the Malaysian Tiger Beer.
More photos tomorrow.
