oh my gooood i have no idea how i'm gonna update this zoo thingy. went to the ueno doubutsuen on sunday with atsu (coworker from ikea) and i took so darn many animals with their name tags that i'm sort of confused now. oh well i'll try my best.
before that, here's my 2nd muffin stuffed with scrambled eggs and croquette.
i forgot to take the zoo sign but oh well. the entrance is 600yen.
some thai-looking pagoda at the entrance
yeah i think you should know what some of the animals are so there's no need to explain. but i could input their japanese names too (if i know...)
elephant (zou) - i think it was being cleaned.
house of the saru ahhah
seal - the mother and baby! so cute
lots of cranes (tsuru)
i think this crane is awesome
black bear (kuma)
i have no idea what i take sometimes
ooh! a huge hamster!
the kid's zoo~
we got to touch all sorts of cute furry creatures
looks like the one popo reared
horsie with plaits! (uma)
goats, lambs, sheeps running free
it seems to like atsu
we were also allowed to feed them!
the little creatures section
i loooove this kitty
what awfully thin legs
the night creatures section
very very cute rabbit-kangaroo-like creature that hops pretty fast around
and out into the sunshine again
here's the reptiles section (and atsu thinks snakes are cute...)
i saw star reptiles like boa constrictor from harry potter and anaconda hahah
colourful and poisonous frogs
turtles are cute
whoo??? turtle (kame) or rock?
there's hardly any space to move... poor thing
and we're out again
didn't see any pandas cos tha last one lingling or something died... but here's a huge one anyway
and then the lion/tigers!
looks damn fierce
some birds and monkeys
it was already getting dark and starting to drizzle around 5pm+. so we hurried to the exit and saw some people carrying matsuri floats!
don't think they are going to hold the procession in such an impending weather...
then there's the puppeteer violinist guy i used to see at ikebukuro as well performing here
we then tried to find a cafe to rest but starbucks was all full so we settled for dinner at watamin. when i tried to withdraw my money i realised i had forgotten my password and entered 3 times the wrong password. got my card locked. so suay. atsu tried to call the bank for me but there's really not much we can do since banks are not opened on weekends. so i used my visa to pay for watamin and got cash from atsu instead. it was hilarious in a way though. haha. anyway, here's the food we ate. (feels like we ate more than doma-doma where there was 4 persons... wow)
cucumber wasabi salad appetizer
mochi thingy again! i love them.
yakiniku/tori. so fattening...
fried chicken skins... ewwww
ochatsuke (rice with tea), better than lei-cha
mochi cheese! NICE
watamin salad i think
it was still raining by the time we finished around 8pm... so we went to sing for an hour at a karaoke (it's like 600+ for a person for an hour with free flow of drink... yikes). luckily the rain stopped then.
look damn chui though
can't believe after days of not sleeping regularly i could still have energy for a whole day out. wow. meanwhile, stella and jiayi had fun at disneysea.
