Last Saturday we went to Farm in the City in Seri Kembangan, Selangor. I thought it would be fun to bring Aisyah there since we can touch the animals. We'd been to Zoo Negara before but that time Aisyah was still small and still couldn't walk. Of course we couldn't touch the animals in the zoo.
We moved from house around 830 am, had our breakfast at the nearest Mamak and arrived at Farm City around 10 am. The sun shone quite intensely at that time. So we bought Aisyah a cap at the Souvenir Shop before the entrance of the Farm in the City. However, once we arrived inside the Farm in the City the pathway was covered. So Aisyah only wore the cap halfway.
Before we bought the ticket, we met with the ostrich first. The ostrich was very near to the visitor. Only the gate separated us from the ostrich.
Ticket price was RM32 (after GST) for adult and free for kids below 100 cm. So we paid RM64 for me and my husband. If you have no cash, they also has debit/credit card machine there. So, no worries.
We started our exploration from the left. We were greeted by the turtles, little turtles they put inside the fence while the big one, they left them outside. The worker gave us some vegetables to feed the turtle. It was kinda amazing to see how the turtles ate the vegetables. Aisyah helped us fed the turtle too but she didn't seem so excited maybe she still tried to get use to the place. The worker also captured our picture and gave us a paper with a number. It was the number of the picture which we can select to print at the exit.
Next stop was the bird area. They left the birds freely in the cage. There weren't a lot of birds and the cage was quite small. But the fun part was the worker put the bird on my husband's hand, let it walked on my husband's arm to his shoulder and licked his sweat at the neck. Haha. It was quite surprising to see the bird licking my husband's sweat. Haha. Apparently the bird likes sweat. Maybe because its salty? Don't know. Hihi.
Then we went to deer and goat place . Before that we walked through snake area. I think the cage for the snake was not really safe. There were even snakes on top of us (separated by glass of course). We just walked through this area since I was quite scared. Haha.
At the deer and goat place, we could touch the deer and feed the goat. Aisyah was so brave, she touched the deer so many times. She also fed the goat, so brave my daughter. I didn't remember where we went afterwards. I think maybe the rabbit place? They put the rabbit freely inside the rabbit area. So we could go around and play with the rabbit. Aisyah was quite scared at first but she still brave herself to touch a few of the rabbits.
The we entered another cage. There's few animal inside this cage. One of it was little monkey. There were two of the little monkeys. Me and my husband thought the monkeys were quite cute and approachable.
Next stop was a big covered area where they put few animals under it like chicks, ostrich egg, snakes, turtles, one hairy animal which we didn't know what animal was it and a few more. We gave a chick to Aisyah and she wanted to squeeze it. My husband cancelled giving the chick to her and put the chick back into its house. (-_-) . About the ostrich egg, apparently it can withstand 90 kg of adult weight but if it being thrown away, it can break. So magical.
So that's it, our exploration with animals.
Oh yes, there's also pony ride. TIPS, if you plan to ride the poney, don't forget to buy the ticket at the counter. Only RM7. We didn't know about this, so we didn't buy the ticket. I think it will be fun. Another TIPS, I don't think stroller is convenient in there. So try to use carrier instead.
Alright, time for pictures.
Till then, Assalamualaikum.
