Last Monday (6 August 2012) saw us at the Second Cargo Complex in Batu Maung after lunch. With not many planes to see, and being rather early to be going back home to referee kiddy fights :o), we decided to drive straight on to Taiping for an impromptu visit to the Taiping Zoo. We arrived at about 3.30pm.
Upon entering the zoo, we immediately hopped-on a long electric buggy that took us on a relaxing 25-minute tour of the zoo. After the tour ended, we then walked around and revisited the animals, allowing the kids to have a closer look. The sky was threatening to rain but it never really did. So, the cloudy sky was perfect for our afternoon outing.

[Angie pulled Jianna away just in time... :o)]
[Julian: Run, Justin! Run!!]
At 5.00pm, we decided that we should be heading home to Penang. On the whole, it was a good way to spend the afternoon and to keep two active boys occupied. Educational for them, too.
