Our first stop of the day was at the Farm Mart Centre. We had some coffee and Tea over there and went to the Mini Animal Corner. Check out the operating hours before you go.

The place and facility are pretty rundown. Limited animals for the kids to feed but that was enough for Asher to spend a good 1 hour feeding the little animals, as well as feeding some mosquitos.

Asher was not afraid to get close to the tortoises, bull frog, fish, goats, rabbits and bird.

Asher was feeding the super chubby bull frogs.

He picked up stones full of mud and touched rusty grilling and we were glad that he did not mention the word “dirty” & “smelly”. Look, he was so happy at the feeding corner. $5/basket with kibbles for bull frogs, fish and tortoises, carrot for rabbits and hamsters, seeds for bird. vegetables for the goats.

I was not sure if they bite but this little boy was so brave that he walked up so near the goats and fed them leaves with his hand.

It was the bird’s turn and he asked for more seeds to feed the smart bird who removed the shell using it’s beak.

Very hungry cat fish !

After that, we took a stroll around the farm and bought the quail eggs, more than 20s at merely $2.

After a simple yet deliciously home cooked lunch, we took a stroll at the farm.

Our last stop was Qian Hu. We know Asher loves to see fish so we decided to go, a little disappointed as he didn’t get to fish but he enjoyed fish spa !

Close to 2 grand for each ! I wonder how much effort needed to take good care of these.
20121225-015102.jpg
Asher placed his hands on the glass and realised the fish can see him, he enjoyed “swimming” with them.
20121225-015132.jpg
With lots of encouraging, we managed to hoax him to soak his feet in, not his hands ! LoL !!
20121225-015203.jpg
Lastly, a nice shot taken by Ben as my phone was dead. $10 for adult & $5 for child, we got to soak our feet for 30 minutes. Fun experience for Asher !
