We are going to the Bird Park

“We are going to the Bird Park, how about you? You can come too, we are going to the Bird Park.”

Dear1, Dear2 and Baby1 are going to the Jurong Bird Park on Dear2’s birthday.  In fact, we went to the Zoo on Dear1’s birthday not too long ago.  If it wasn’t that Baby1’s birthday is on the Chinese New Year itself, plus it’s late, after 7.30pm opening hours, we might have visited the Night Safari on Baby1’s birthday too.  Or maybe the River Safari which has yet to open, opening in 2012.  :p

You may or may not know, the above mentioned attractions offer FREE ENTRY for people who visit on their BIRTHDAY.  Yes! Free entry + 1 (tiny) scoop of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream + 1 Wild Birthday Badge + staff who will wish you Happy Birthday.  So cool, isn’t it.

Go to the respective website and click under Visitor Information, Opening Hours and Rates. Right at the bottom, there’s a section on Wild Birthday Surprises – FREE admission for all birthday boys or girls of all ages.  We went to the zoo on Dear1’s 30th birthday, so yes, 30 years old is still a “birthday boys or girls of all ages”.

It must have been a looooooooong long time since Dear1 and Dear2 went to these attractions.  The websites are updated and funky, the staff at the Zoo are all youthful and enthusiastic, the Zoo is well maintained and clean and scenic.  Dear2 has never been to the Bird Park before, so hoping that it will be as fun and nice as the Zoo.

We are going to the Bird Park, how about you? You can come too, we are going to the Bird Park.

PS: Oh, before we go to the Bird Park, must remember to check out the Maybank Card again.  Dear1 remembered that there was a 5% discount using the Card at the Zoo, but the staff wasn’t aware of this.  We paid using the OCBC Card instead which gave us a 5% instant discount.  After leaving the counter, Dear1 recalled that the 5% on the Maybank Card was a rebate on the card in the bill.
