It is not National Zoo, but the Sunway Wildlife Interactive Zoo.
We thought it will be a great outing because Sarah can have an “up-close and personal” contact with the tame animals there, but things just not turned out to be that way…
She was excited at first when she saw the man-made waterfall while we were walking towards the zoo, but she got scared when the Sunway Mascot walk passed her. She requested to be “bao bao” (carry) from there on and all the way to the entrance.
Once we reached there, she saw fishes swimming in the pond. She enjoyed the moment when we brought her near to the koi fish.
Her “trauma” started when she saw the parrots right after the entrance. Since then, daddy had to do the “heavy” job of carrying her around the zoo. She just doesn’t want to walk! Once a in a while, she will enjoyed the surrounding and animals but must have close accompanied by me or daddy.
Just before we proceed home, we brought her for a train ride. We were happy when seeing her clapped hands during the ride (finally something can please her well).
Perhaps this is not the right time yet for her to have close interacting with the animals, she’s easily gets spooked by them...or maybe she is too chicken-hearted.
But for sure, she would not want to visit to the zoo again; at least that was the answer whenever being asked.
