Kellogg's Family Day Out at Zoo

We were invited by Kellogg's for a Family Day out to the Zoo, where we had an international buffet breakfast at the Ah Meng's restaurant with the Orangutans. Not just one, but a family of orangutans! Which I've to say, it's easier to get kids look into the camera than the Orangutans. It was a fulfilling experience, not just for our tummies, but for getting up close with the Orangutans and a tame python. Orangutans in Malay means man of the forest.

Before entering the Zoo, we met Kellogg's mascots at the entrance for some photo moments. After which, we proceeded into the zoo for the hearty breakfast.

And yes! Kellogg's range of cereal is now part of the breakfast buffet. Cereal partnered with milk make a breakfast spread complete.

The breakfast buffet spread at Ah Meng's restaurant has a good mix of Western and Asian delicacies. The Orangutans weren't there throughout our meal and not the near proximity we expected. Depends where you are seated perhaps. They were only out for a 30 minutes meet and greet session before returning to their trees. You will have to plan your eating pace accordingly. Don't get into the queue when it's too long or when it's ending.

Cereal complements the breakfast spread

Among the four popular choices of cereal over breakfast - cornflakes, fruit loops, coco pops and crunchy oats, fruit loops is the popular choice among kids! It was the fastest running cereal that morning at the restaurant. But if you were to ask the Mama, unsweetened cornflakes will always be my choice for them. Where each cornflakes piece is pressed from one corn grain. Sharing an easy cornflakes recipe towards the end of this post.

After breakfast was games and more cereals! We played spot the differences, which was really challenging to find 5 within a minute. We didn't succeed, but we had fun doing it together. And then we stacked cups, competing with the game master. Which he probably stacked slower just so the kids were happy to win. Heh!

Many cereal choices!

More fruit loops!

Kellogg's has also sponsored the Primate Kingdom, and naming one of the Capuchin as Coco after its Coco mascot for Coco pops. We visited the Brown Capuchin, and did attempt to call out for "Coco." 

No respond of course.


Could be Coco the Capuchin

And we are primates too! That's what Scientists claim. All primates have a large brain compared to their body size. They are good climbers with strong arms and legs, and long grasping fingers and toes. The eyes of primates face forward to help them judge distance accurately. Excellent vision they have.

Physical and behaviour traits tie us to primates. How exactly are we alike? I only understand when I look at my kids.

Humans are primates too!

And if we do the zoo, we would always try not to miss feeding the giraffes and rhinoceros! Elephants too, if you are able to score a space in the line. Feed at $5 per platter.

Feeding times
Rhinoceros: 1.15pm
Giraffes: 10.45am, 1.50pm and 3.45pm
Elephants: 9.15am, 1.30pm and 1.40pm
You do need to try score seats in the center of the elephant show area if your would like to feed elephants. That's where the feeding queue begins.
