Wednesday was a public holiday (Deepavali) and I was thinking hard of where to bring Aulia' and we finally decided to go to KL Bird Park. We've never been here eventhough we've been living in KL for ages. It always the best part when we spend time the three of us...and the best part was our little kiddo is excited to see all those birds.
I was so surprised to see how big the place is. Who knew there is such a huge bird park in the middle of Kuala Lumpur. By the time we came, it was a scorching 33 degree! Dam hot man..my little girl cannot tahan! Puteri lilin kan...
The bird park is divided into 5 zones. Each has its so called own partition but we didn't manage to explore further due to raining in the afternoon. My back was hurting from all those walks by the way..auucchh talk about aging gracefully hehe!and my girl has become the lazy bum she refused to walk because it was scorching (just exactly like her dad!) but she was so happy though when she saw birds flying everywhere and because its colorful too!
Most of the birds are left wondering around freely in the park and we can actually feed them. They even provide you with seeds.
There are 30 minutes bird show at 12.30 p.m. and 3.30 p.m. and we manage to catch the first session. But it was a long walk to arrive at Zone 4 arena omg, I really underestimated the place. It is huge!
We took an ice cream break after the show and the sky getting darker warned us its going to be raining soon.
..and we continue walking through the zones as it lead us to the exit gate..
we passed by the cassowary cage..
..and went to egg hatching gallery...
We walked for almost two hours inside the park. Yes, we had fun a lot! I would recommend to anyone who haven't visited the place to go and check it out. The entrance fee is RM 25.00 per adult and RM 12.00 for children below 12 years old. But you need to show your Mykad and Mykid at the ticket counter. I would advise you to bring your own snack and most importantly plenty of water as a small mineral water would cost you RM 4.00 each within the bird park area. That is kind of absurd to me.
So we went back only when the rain has stopped and get our lunch outside the premise.
