Visiting The Melaka Butterfly & Reptile Sanctuary @ Ayer Keroh, Melaka

The Melaka city centre can get pretty crowded with tourists, especially over the weekend and holidays. If you’re looking for a more relaxing (and educational!) excursion, consider the Melaka Butterfly and Reptile Sanctuary. Tucked in Ayer Keroh, about 15 to 20 minutes away from the city, this mini zoo of sorts was opened in 1991 and is home to hundreds of insects, small animals and … Continue reading Visiting The Melaka Butterfly & Reptile Sanctuary @ Ayer Keroh, Melaka

Taiping Zoo & Night Safari, Perak – One Of the Best Zoos In Malaysia

I’ve been to a couple of zoos. I know some people say it’s cruel to keep them in cages, which I agree with, but there are also those who argue in favour that the animals are well cared for and safe. Admittedly, there are zoos that are in terrible conditions and are literal hell holes, which should be shut down ASAP, but a well kept … Continue reading Taiping Zoo & Night Safari, Perak – One Of the Best Zoos In Malaysia

Lost World of Tambun Hot Springs and Spa and Night Petting Zoo

This time around, I came with my fam over the weekend.  It … Continue reading Lost World of Tambun Hot Springs and Spa and Night Petting Zoo

Los Angeles Zoo

I have a love-hate relationship with zoos. While it’s great that I get to see the animals up close, it’s not good to keep them fenced up in cages either. They should be roaming free; wild and happy. But then again, habitat destruction and the eradication of various species is so common that people have started justifying the actions of ‘protecting’ animals by keeping them in zoos, where … Continue reading Los Angeles Zoo
