Mr. Peacock Made My Day

On the weekend we wanted to take the boys to Underwater World, an oceanarium showcasing marine life from the region. It is situated on Sentosa Island of Singapore.

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!

cool! I don't think I've actually seen a peacock live before!

Lin said...

Did he make his "call" for you? Those things are so freaking LOUD! I can do an imitation, but you wouldn't hear it and my family would go running because it is very lifelike and very loud. They are beautiful birds aren't they?

Monica: Yes, I'm now in Singapore! It's wierd to live in Asia again after being away for 11 years. Here I get to eat lots of nasi lemak :-)

Lynne: Seeing peacock showing off its feathers is quite a sight. It reminds me of proud male drivers with their flashy Lumboghini!

Lin: LOL...I don't even know that peacock makes any noise. You're right - peacock is one of the most beautiful birds in the world. If I have a garden, I'll keep a few peacocks there.....

I loved Sentosa island. Actually, I lvoed every single minute that I spent in Singapore.

Angie R said...

Hi Emm! tnx for dropping by. When you next see Sentosa again, I wonder if you'll like it that much. They're building big casino on the island right now. The place will soon be infested with big time gamblers.

Emm said...

Oh dear... I will definitely have to go back one day to check it out.
