However when we arrived, we were so put off by the long queue. We ended up having ice-cream just outside the entrance to Underwater World.
Bearbear made us promise him that we'd take him there again on a WEEKDAY. We presume it'd be less crowded on a weekday.
Anyway, as we were having our ice-cream, we felt incredibly bored. Petty, at this point, was boiling hot, both from the heat and the fact that he let the boys down.
"Singapore is just too crowded. A small island with too many people living here." Petty was complaining and I quite agreed with him.
Just at this moment, we saw this gorgeous looking peacock roaming about on a field in front of us.
Bearbear called out PEACOCK! MAMA LOOK PEACOCK!
And all of a sudden, this hauntingly beautiful creature, behaving much like a magician, shook and spread his feathers and turned himself into something like this!
A small crowd by now was formed in front of the peacock. He wasn't shy at all. He kept parading his feathers, turning from one side to the other and back. Very good showmanship. I found it quite amusing.
Then he turned towards me and stopped. Gotcha! You're now in my Picasa web album.
Thanks for making my day Mr. Peacock!
