One of the secret perks of being a Singaporean is free entry to the Singapore Wild Parks such as the Zoo, River Safari, Bird Park and Night Safari on your birth date. It is quite secret because nearly everyone I asked didn’t know about this privilege.

So as Grace’s birthday this year fell on a Saturday, we decided to bring her to the River Safari to celebrate her special day. We got a few other extra tickets from my Father-in-law’s corporate pass (kudos government servants) and we were in the park without spending a penny!

Naturally Grace wanted to dress up for the part and wore her new tiara which she got as a birthday gift.

It was nice to be back at River Safari for the fourth time. During this trip we get to see our beloved pandas again and also took the River Cruise around Mandai Reservoir. However the crowd favorite and also our personal favourites are the gentle giants, the manatees.
