NO , we are not talking about Kungfu Panda. but the giants Kai Kai (凯凯)and Jia Jia (嘉嘉) from China.
Our exposure to date to Pandas would be the Kungfu Panda. When we would told that we would be seeing some real live panda , we are excited. Finally we could see a giant panda swinging through bamboos and showing us some kungfu chops. So you could imagine the level of our curiosity when we reach the Panda exhibit at Singapore Zoo.

The state-of-the-art biodome is specially designed and landscaped to simulate the giant pandas' natural habitat in the rugged highlands of China.
|Meet the Pandas|
Fact : A bamboo eats up to 20kg of bamboos everyday. That is as much as 100 bowls of rice per day.
The zoo needs to plant a specify type of bamboo to cater to the Panda's diet.

We love the interactive gallery as we managed to pick up quite a bit of panda knowledge. Our parents learn a thing or 2 about pandas as well. Guess you are never too old to learn.

Soon our 15 minutes are up and the pandas retreated back to an area from sight. This is also our cue to exit the exhibit. It must be quite tiring for the pandas to enter and exit the compound every 15 to 20 minutes or so.
|Bye Giant Pandas!|
