Am writing after a long time since hardly get any time after work and home. This place though which I visited yesterday with my family (Hubby and 2 kids) is compelling me to write. 😀

In Singapore, there are ample number of shopping malls and other indoor things for kids to explore but what if you want the kids to have a piece of nature, get closer to cute animals? Look no further and visit “The Animal Resort”. It is a small farm (actually a pet grooming facility) located @ T81, Seletar West Farmway. 

One of my friends had mentioned about it. Also, I had read some reviews so the moment long weekend approached, we decided to back-pack and visit it!!

Hubby drove us there.

Upon reaching, there was this sign board that greeted us and reminded us the importance of cleanliness.

We had forgotten to pack mosquito patches. So we bought them and lots of food for our animal friends to feed. (One very loving Aunty with a smiling face explained which food to give which animal etc. and the prices very cheap – 3 food packets for SGD 2)

As soon as we purchased animal food, suddenly a group of 5-6 geese came running out of nowhere and started “demanding” food. One of them looked like a team leader. 😀 Such a nice start of this small excursion!

After eating, they went and started swimming in this small pond of theirs. So shiok.

We also followed them and spotted some macaws. One of them was super-smart and was replying to our “Hello” with a loud and clear “Hello”. Awesome! BTW, they are on a special diet and we should not feed them.

Aha! What’s that? Emu? No, something like that called as “Casuary” or “Cassowary”.Big, brown and piercing eyes it has. Very friendly though. Even kids can feed it easily.

Now, comes the Prince! Horse, it is. Alone in his own place. Beware, He BITES.

We fed him lots of carrots and he gobbled them down all.

Rabbits, Guinea Pigs and what is that? is it a newborn, cute little pig? I guess so.

After that, it’s turn of Fish pond and pigeons. Pigeons is another smart bird. They were following us everywhere for food. 😛

Also, spotted marabou stork.

How to forget peacocks and white peacocks? There was a couple of white peacocks and some usual peacocks. Usual peacocks were very dominating and attacking white ones while eating food. Bad, bad!!

As I said, it is actually a pet grooming facility so you can also spot a variety of dogs and witness grooming sessions. Dog lovers can also do some courses from this place.

Also, there is a German shepherd training facility. (which only official persons can enter)
 

All in all, a great day out for kids and parents. Visit can last about 2-3 hours, you don’t get tired and enjoy nicely in nature and animals’ company. (Do not forget to pack your sanitizer and mosquito patches.)

After that, head straightaway to the famous Prata place in Jalan Kayu to have delicious assorted pratas. Yum, yum!!
