0730: kakak fetched me from ilmu and we heading to atm for the ride to the zoo
0900: arrived at Zoo Negara and we was late..and only 29 reported and it was kinda short cos supposed there are 40 of us..well..its a 3-days-weekend..so what to do..then we were divided into 5 per group..but then due to our number..then my group was just 4..me,kakak,sugana and komala..then another 2 boys joined us cos their house didnt need volunteers..so we 6 work at the bird house..
then i lost track of time ^_^
our first job was to sweep leaves and clear the flamingo area..gosh..experiencing the animal from inside the cage was so much different..so near to earth..love the feeling..then after the break at 10am..we headed back to the house and kakak and i got separated...she with the other 4 went to the flamingo area again..and i was assigned with encik kecik at the kitchen..haha..such a cute kid..he's 19..so i am comfortable enough as i cant have any feeling..hahaha.gatal me..but he is suc a nice kid..oh..need to mention he smoke..haish..ok..the job..first i help cut meat into cubes for the owl..wow! then prepare the banana n papayas for the birds..just arrange them so that the chef can deal with them later..in between that..another bird man came..to check on us maybe..haha..ya la..there's only 2 of us inside the kitchen..haha..as if i wanted to do anything la kan..funny..then he offered me muffins he baked..haha..it was wonderful..but i forgot to take pic of the muffin..its was even topped with choc..cant believe it was baked by him..haha..and there's also kek lapis sarawak..baked by kecik..gosh! it was so good i hardly can believe kecik did it..its so perfect! just like those we got form sarawak..really admire them for that..guy that baked! and love animals! gosh! i wish they were older..hehe..then we joined the others..just for a while..help bring all the pencakar and cangkul back to the bird house..then it was 12pm when they told us we can go for a walk and lunch..haha..our break supposed to be just 1 hour but it was 2 hours for us..so lucky! alhamdullilah..it was not so tiring for cos i work in the air-cond kitchen..hehe...then lunch time..the SIR provide us with nasi briani..its was good..really!
