kobe animal kingdom

another great place to visit in osaka

we spent over half a day at the kobe animal kingdom..
being up close with big birds, small birds, furry friends, not so furry friends...
feeding them, following them around, patting them, getting patted (yes!)...

finally meeting my alpaca in person!

the sign says "big bill"
it is indeed quite big...
almost 3/4 of my height...
roaming in its little garden...

while i was posing for a picture with it,
i felt a pat on my shoulder,
i turned around and saw it walking pass me...
somotu said it is very obvious that it didn't want to take picture with me *laugh*

big owls and small owls
owls are here and there...

checking out the tadpoles...

capybara.... hiding its big two front teeth

"up there!"
"just look!"

these silly looking penguins stretched their necks and kept staring at the sky
for a long long long while............
(one of them got tired and stared straight instead)

sooo cute....

i can't stop giggling when i saw them..
(little bb, we will let you watch the movie this summer!)

love love love
i have been waiting to meet you for my whole life......... *smile*
toooooo cute.......

i didn't want to leave...
i could stand there admiring them for the whole day
(and they remind me of our sugar and brownie at home)

kids plaza osaka @ may 16

after the visit to the instant noodles museum and the zakka shop,
we went to the kids plaza osaka...
it was great fun all the way from here to the stars and back!

the kids town was a big hit for little bb...
he was climbing over the walls, walking through the suspension bridge,
running up and down the stairs...
the best part was this super long tube slider which runs through 2 floors.
little bb had at least ten slides!

next was the kids street where we did a few role play...
plumber, postman, police...

this little supermarket for little people is way too cute...
each item has a bar code and is neatly organized into different sections.

little people are to do some grocery shopping and wait in line for self checkout.

no kidding... this bar code reader is for real!

and there is even a receipt printed when done checking out!

little bb was reluctant to leave the museum as expected.
we had to lure him to leave by telling him about another two super long slides outside the museum.

i did both slides with him
and i must say the covered one is just a little bit too exciting for me!  *laugh*
i had to slow myself down by putting my feet against the sides of the slide... *laugh*

the covered one, to me, beats this one in terms of speed
but little bb finds this one more exciting...
probably because it wasn't covered and it adds to the excitement!
