A trip to the zoo and update on the shop

I brought my student to the zoo, it has been sometime since I last made a visit to the zoo. Here are some pics that I took that have been waiting to be uploaded for sometime, I m still trying to adjust to blogger.com , I still prefer wordpress, but I just have no idea what went wrong with my puter that keeps shutting wordpress down …sigh .

This was found at the entrance of the zoo, it reminds me of the animation Ice Age when the mammoth goes through the cave to find some drawings and he find mommy elephant and daddy elephant being together.

Entrance

I have never seen such a big croc or alligator in my life , it was huge..

Big crocodile

I have to say I was just a teeny bit scared of falling down into the area and come face to face with it…

We saw the usual giraffes, zebras and lions

What the?

This is from blogspot ….

Its been sometime, since I last moved to blogspot…after wordpress kinda crashed on me …boo hoo…but anyways I don’t plan to stop blogging.

I had to get up at 3 am in the morning to attend a special pooja sometime ago….it was quite an experience and after which I had an invitation for housewarming from my uncle all on the same day.

Upon reaching his flat we found a seafood restaurant with all these fishes and crabs waiting for their turn to the dinner plate.

huge snails/clams and grouper fishes

I finally had a chance to go to batu cave in Malaysia last month , before heading off to Kuala Lumpur, we dropped by Johor Bahru Mariamman temple and had a hearty breakfast at a nearby Indian food stall.

This is at the temple

Johor - Mariamman

and later somewhere in between Johor and Kuala Lumpur

Somewhere in malaysia

and finally made it to Kuala Lumpur and onto Batu Caves

KL - Batu Murugan1

and later after climbing up the stairs all the way to the top harrassed by monkeys and rainfall ( although the stairs weren’t slippery just the occasional banana peels littered here and there by the monkeys… you get to see this beautiful statue

KL - Batu Cave Murugan on the rocks

and you walk on to see that are more stairs to be tackled , going down and up again

and you see the main shrine

After praying , I went on to tackle the next set of stairs even further ,

unfortunately I did not take my camera with me to take pictures …..it was wonderful just to be there and see this…

KL - Batu Cave - raining

and after a bit of wandering around I went down the steps to have another shot

The time was up to head back to our travel coach and this time I didn’t think the monkeys will bother me so I got to take some photos descending…

KL - Batu Cave descending

and this shot was taken roughly around the tip of the statue od Murugan..

It was a long and tiring trip but I enjoyed myself 😀
