Tiger show is looking hot!

It was Monday and it’s a public holiday. I woke up late so there goes my Tenom plan. I forgot t o set my alarm at 6, I was very confident that I could wake up at 6. I always do! Anyway, I don’t want to waste my day so I changed my plan. I did mentioned that I want to visit again Lok Kawi Wildlife Park on my previous post so here I am with my camera ready to shoot. People, before you go out, please make sure you have fully charged you battery; I was lucky enough that my battery didn’t died out on me while I was there. I was running low by the time I reach the Botanical Information Centre. I was there at 10:30 am and hoping that some of the resident are wide awake and active.

For those who still don’t know where it is located, it’s at Penampang – Papar Old road, I think about 15 minutes ride form Kota Kinabalu. The park is open to the public daily, including public holiday from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm. I was lucky enough to have watched the animal show at 11:15 am. That’s the only time they do the show by the way. Entrance fees are RM10 for Malaysian citizens and RM20 for foreigner if you’re 18 years and above while RM5 for Malaysia citizen and RM10 for foreigner if you’re 18 years below. School student wearing a uniform with application letter, handicapped and senior citizens 60 years and above Malaysia are free to enter this kingdom 🙂

I think the Malayan Civets are a bit camera shy that day.

That Clouded Leaport must be dreaming of a very succulent juicy tender meat.

Right after looking at the elephants, I saw there was some comotion going on opposite to the elephants are. I went there and one of the park’s personnel was beckonning me to come it. I look at the notice at the gate and saw that they are having animal show at 11:15am until 11:45am and it was just started. Am I lucky or what?

This is actually a contest between man and beast. The person who volunteered to peel the old coconut husk was not that good looking and managed to peel a strand of the husk while the Orang Utan managed to beat him. I was part of the audience who chanting her name, I forgot her name though 😉

Just before this snake was brought to the stage, guess where they put it? Among the audience ladies and gentlement. So it would be good if you remain at your seat and stop poking at any unfamiliar thing next to your seat!

There is also hornbill that swoop over your head to catch food thrown by the trainner and hornbill responding to trainers whistle. Except for the parrots who don’t know how to fly, both hornbill flew over the audience heads. Neat!

Sad thing about her, she was originally someone’s pet before she was given to Sabah Wildlife. The others didn’t like her and she was always bullied by the others.

Lok Kawi Wildlife Park

They were pets since there were small and were kept on a small cage where it was not enough room for them to fly. Until today, they never learn how to fly even though they have beautiful long feathers to fly with. This show was aimed to educate the public, wild animals are meant for wild, not as pets.

After the show, to the Aviary I went. 🙂

The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.
