31st may 2008 – our cell group outing to taman buaya tuaran!

_MG_6886

when we reached there, the show was almost over.

_MG_6888
yup, over.

_MG_6896
we were then entertained with cultural dance. more for the tourists, i would think.

_MG_6903
after enduring through 20-30 minutes of the cultural dance, we walked around the taman. saw this tail-less croc. no idea what happened to the tail but i would think this handicap would throw off its balance when crawling. then again, there’s not much space for this poor croc to move about.

_MG_6904

guess what were they waiting for?

_MG_6905

feeding time! they were thrown chickens… at least not the live ones. that would be cruel, in my opinion.

_MG_6908
this croc kind of freak me out a little. look at its right eye.

_MG_6906
zoomed in picture for more freaky effect. ewww…. the eye is popped out, yet still attached. non-functional i’m sure.

_MG_6919
someone needs a manicure…

_MG_6902
not that scary when placed in a pool. *phew*

 

_MG_6916
something about ostrich amuses me… God’s creativity, ingenuity and sense of humour, all rolled into one. *i’m envious of its eyelash. then again, maybe not*

chai hoong, our “tour leader” for the day and payau.

_MG_6923
georgina feeding the payau

_MG_6926

_MG_6927
yikes…. they look so geli.

_MG_6930
literally hundreds of them. yikes!

_MG_6933
koi fish

_MG_6942
some ular… chai hoong actually posed with it! you can call me a scary cat, but i’ll not go as far as to pose with it!

_MG_6943
later, we adjourned to gayang seafood restaurant for lunch…

_MG_6944

… followed by coconut pudding for dessert by some road side. by then, we were really full. i mean, the cannot-take-another-spoonful-or-else-i-would-vomit kind of full.

we decided to walk off our fullness at 1borneo. huge place, but only the cinema was open then.

here’s a group pic. from left to right: chai hoong, siau yee, georgina, ps vui tze & ps thomas.

_MG_6948
the bait

_MG_6950
ada orang jiwang sebab tiada kawan hook bait untuk dia. hehehehe

_MG_6959

_MG_6971
can tell it’s a lady’s fishing toolbox just by the sheer presence of the baby wipes =)

_MG_6974
cynthia threw the hook in and posed for a picture…

_MG_6975
… eh, so fast song diau?

_MG_6978

_MG_6981
