DS’s Kinder-1 Educational Field Trip Part 1: ARK AVILON ZOO

Again, I know this has been a long overdue post. I got sick the day after the field trip, good thing it was me instead of DS who got sick as we all knew how hard it is for the kids being sick. Anyway, let’s get down to the field trip activities.

Last January 25 ( Wednesday), Nicco and I were both up early to prepare. As usual, DS is very excited 🙂 Assembly time is 7:00 am. and we were there right just in time. The bus departed a few minutes after 7 and we were at our first stop at exactly 8 in the morning.

First stop: ARK AVILON ZOO

An interactive indoor zoo, it resembles the biblical ark,(NOAH’S ARK) having different wildlife animals.

We waited for about thirty minutes outside since we were told that the staff are still preparing before they accommodate us.

Kids enjoyed some magic tricks from a magician (part of the service from the tour company I suppose), while we wait for the opening of the zoo.
