Visit to River Safari, Singapore

River Safari was opened in April 2013 in Singapore – Mandai area. There are a few buses heading to River Safari.

You can take bus 138 from Ang Mo Kio Bus Interchange or bus 927 from Choa Chu Kang Bus Interchange (via Woodlands Road) to River Safari.

Of course, this is one of the most attractive places that people should come and visit at River Safari! To see the Pandas – Kai Kai and Jia Jia.

Do visit Kai Kai and Jia Jia at the Giant Panda Forest.

Look at Kai Kai – Isn’t him adorable? Jia Jia is very shy.

Do not scare those cute animals…

Inuka has been relocated to Frozen Tundra at River Safari from Singapore Zoological Garden. When I first saw Inuka in 1994, he was just a cute baby.

Now he has grown up to be so big.

Mississippi River…

Do catch the beaver there!

Mekong River section – where you can see the fishes and animals from Mekong Delta (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myammar, China and Thailand area)

I will encourage people to buy a boat ride ticket at $5/pax for adults to have a quick view of the animals. The ride was great and I could get a quick glimpse of the animals within a short period of time. Nice!

Movie: War Horse

Saw the trailer of this movie a few months ago while waiting to watch the 3 Musketeers.

War Horse is a war drama film directed by Steven Spielberg and it had been nominated and won some film awards. Many horses are used to film in this movie and it was not that easy to film such scenes to show the equines’ emotional and how the main character, Albert, is bonded with Joey, the horse, that his father had bought before the start of the World War I and how Joey got separated with Albert and then reunited again.

Here’s the trailer of the movie – War Horse:

If you have the time, do catch this movie. I felt like crying as I was touched by the scenes in this movie.

I will give this movie 4.75 stars out of 5.

Movie Review: Dolphin Tale

Image taken from wikipedia

Have you watch this movie – Dolphin Tale? It is one of the nice and most inspiring movie that I watched. I cried while watching this movie. I do love dolphins. It is funny in some ways (especially the kingfisher part) and quite touching at times especially the moment between Kyle, Saywer’s cousin trying to touch Winter and how the kids organised an event to save Winter.

It is about real-life story about Winter the Dolphin. Of course, Winter acted as herself in the movie. She was trapped on the crab trap & lost her tail. A dolphin without a tail – means it cannot swim and may die. But Winter has a strong willpower and managed to swim without a tail. However, this action causes more problems to her body and help is needed to create a suitable prosthetic for Winter to swim properly. It was not easy to create artificial tail for a dolphin.

Meanwhile, Saywer got to know about Dr McCarthy through his cousin, Kyle and Dr McCarthy promised to create a suitable artificial tail for Winter as he is a specialist in creating artificial limbs for the humans.

While saving Winter, Clearwater Medical Centre did had some problems as funds were running low. Watch this movie to find out how Saywer and other characters figure out a way to save Winter.

I will give this film a 5 out of 5 stars. Suitable for everybody to watch. Do not give up if you are facing problems and difficulties. Think of how Winter overcome her problem of her missing tail and her will to live on. And thank you for the people who created artificial tail/(s) for Winter.
