It proved to be a busy but fun weekend for our little Princess as Daddy specially kept last Saturday free to bring her to the Zoo! 🙂 It being a typical hot and humid morning, Mummy tied a tiny ponytail for Dana and she was obedient enough to keep it on throughout the outing! I just loved how cute she look with the ponytail! 🙂
We were informed that Dana’s lessons for this week will be on Sea Animals so we planned our itinerary at the zoo around the Splash Safari Show! Here, Dana came up close with the Penguins, the Manatees and the Sealions!
We feel that this is the right age to revisit the Zoo with Dana as her teachers has just completed a series of lessons on Farm animals and she was able to identify many of the animals she sees. She’s also shown greater enthusiasm and concentration during the various animal feeding sessions and animal shows.
We were delighted and impressed that Dana was able to name the Chinese terms for some of the more common animals such as “Lao Hu” for Tigers, “Ban Ma” for Zebras, “Da Xiang” for elephants and even “Chang Jing Lu” for Giraffes! Looks like our Princess is on the road to effective bilingualism! We have the preschool Chinese Teachers to thank for this 🙂
It was a most worthwhile and enjoyable leisurely family outing. I wish we have time to do this every weekend…
