Celebrate Moments that Matter with Wildlife Parks #MyMandai

The long Chinese New Year weekend is coming up!! Other than the usual visiting and feasting, have you made plans??

We'll probably try to head down to the Jurong Bird Park / Night Safari since we haven't been there in yeaaaars, or maybe even River Safari since we haven't been there in like, erm, ever???! So shocker, right? haha

Above pic was taken at Singapore Zoo in Nov 2015 when we were there for Lil Pumpkin's K2 graduation ceremony!! Oh my.. haven't even gotten down to writing about it yet eeks~

I'm quite sure most Singaporeans have been to our wildlife parks at least once. Do you remember how joyous your kids were when you took them to visit koalas and giraffes at the zoo, or pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia at the River Safari? What about your own first outing to the zoo or bird park?

Sometimes it's the littlest things that we remember. The sounds. The sights. And yes, even the smells (⌒▽⌒)☆

From now until end Feb 2016, Mandai Safari Park Holdings, the organisation overseeing the rejuvenation of Mandai into an integrated wildlife and nature heritage space, wants to celebrate our unforgettable moments at our wildlife parks and is hosting a #MyMandai Memories online photo-sharing event to showcase nostalgia and the important social impact of these beloved parks over the past 45 years through the public’s eyes.

The photos collected will eventually form a mural wall at Singapore Zoo's entrance for public viewing for two months, from 1 Feb to 31 Mar 2016.

All you have to do is to submit photos taken at any of the four parks: Singapore Zoo, River Safari, Night Safari or Jurong Bird Park since they were established {I saw some that were taken in the 1970s!} and you could be rewarded with a S$10 food and beverage Wildlife Reserves Singapore voucher to be used at any of the wildlife parks!

In addition, a winner with the most interesting photo submission each week will receive a S$100 Wildlife Reserves Singapore food and beverage voucher.

#MyMandai honours Singapore’s 45 years of wildlife heritage and serves as a prelude to the proposed rejuvenation of the Mandai Nature Precinct. Collectively, the parks have helped parents nurture their kids, build friendships and cement relationships through truly fun-filled journeys which have inspired generations of Singaporeans through the wonders of Mother Nature.

Check out this video or visit the #MyMandai gallery to see what our beloved wildlife parks mean to Singaporeans from all walks of life. You can find out more information about the contest on #MyMandai website too.

Each photo entry must be submitted via or via by 29 Feb 2016, 2359hrs. Each contributor can submit up to 5 photos.

I'm gonna dig up some of our old Zoo photos to submit, and hopefully add on new ones after our next wildlife park visit too!

We used to have a membership to the local zoo and we went all the time when my boys were little. We always loved going :)
