Penguin Expedition
I was really excited when I was able to feel the cold air when we entered this big room. It was like a gigantic freezer, the atmosphere made it more exciting to see the penguins for real. We passed by this miniature ship and a picture of a colony, a rookery or a waddle, which means a group of penguins on land, while if it's a group of penguins floating in the sea it's referred to as a raft. Happy Feet, Mumble that's what comes in mind when we we're about to enter the world of these fascinating birds flapping their wings and propelling underwater.



Penguins are great swimmers, there wings were designed as excellent paddles to swim their way underwater. They are exquisitely cute in every angle, the way they swim around and most especially when they do their famous walk. I also saw these two figures outside, a mother and a baby penguin which you should definitely have a picture with. From the cheerful penguins we move ahead to a gloomy area where the night watchers are residing.



World of Darkness
Asia's first nocturnal bird house. They looked like stolen images from your camera, others seemed like paintings. I passed by each bird and I know they're quietly observing me with their big flashing eyes, at the same time so was I. If you looked more intensely closer,it felt like being absorbed by this force plus this weird feeling of being in the dark.
