River Safari - KaiKai & JiaJia

Thanks to sg.openrice.com facebook contest, 
I won myself a visit to see KaiKai & JiaJia at the River Safari! YAY!


Welcome Kai Kai, Jia Jia * Mich Mich. LOL!

A little information about the new River Safari:
River Safari is the newest addition to Wildlife Reserves Singapore’s portfolio of award-winning parks. Nestled between Singapore’s two award-winning wildlife parks – Singapore Zoo and Night Safari – River Safari offers an unforgettable adventure inspired by eight of the world’s most iconic rivers. This $160-million attraction features state-of-the-art exhibit design, Southeast Asia's largest panda exhibit as well as the world's largest freshwater aquarium. Housing one of the world’s largest collections of freshwater fauna, the park features over 5,000 specimens representing 300 species. And that includes Singapore’s resident giant pandas, Kai Kai and Jia Jia.

Let's go on a tour with the many animals that can't live on land! HAHA.
Disclaimer: I did not remember all the fishes names, so bear with me while i describe them according to their appearance. And also, I will try not to type too much words in this post, so just enjoy the pictures! Thank you.

The river safari has some land animals too, Like this cutesy Monkey hiding from all tourist by standing so high up there!

OKAY, From this point onwards is where the pandas are kept but the area does not only have kai kai & Jia Jia, They have friends too!
AND PLEASE! Keep your volume down (do not scream when you see the pandas).

Tadaaaaaaaaaaaaa ! Hello KaiKai! ♥
They are relatively still Small and cute as they are still young. :)


AND THEN, It was with great luck and honor that we get to see the Super Shy JiaJia, Feeding on Bamboos! I felt that it was so rare that I had to take a Video of her! Look at the video here because blogger can't seem to find my video! LOL.

But anyway, here's a Gif of her Eating Bamboo Cutely! :P

And somemore pictures of Jia Jia Since she rarely comes out.






Then inbetween KaiKai & JiaJia is like a mini gallery where you can know more about Pandas and there is a panda statue for you to take pictures with, you get to see a baby Panda too! Spot the Pink little thing!


*Fact about Pandas

Just before you exit, this is a screen where you normally will see the shy jiajia in her den, But here in the screen you see kai kai because jia jia is still busy munching on her bamboos outside. :)


Then you will step into the gift shop which is No Photography one! I didn't know.. ):

Then, I really Recommend you all to go to this MAMA PANDA KITCHEN! :)


WHY? Because you get to eat PANDA BAO! :D and many other yummy dishes to fill your tummies after seeing the pandas! :)

Top Right: Panda Bao - Red Bean Filling Bao that cost $3.90 or $4.90 :x
Bottom Left: Tumblers for soft drinks, $3.90 only! and you get to bring back the tumbler! YAY!

And here's a nice background that everyone should take a picture with la!



Then we continued to walk around River Safari and was just in time for a cute Monkey Breed Feeding time! :) The monkeys will come super close to you one, but they wont touch you la! :D


Then it's about fishy again! Piranha FISH! :OOOOOOO
