Day 1 of the excitement is over!
After the short flight from Singapore to Penang, we (hungry children and teachers) proceeded to a local restaurant to have our lunch. After the feast, our journey started.
First was the encounter with the creepy crawlies. Butterflies, gigantic leaf insect, exotic reptiles – you name it, they have it. The children who are more interested even got to hold the creepy crawlies! Teachers also joined in the fun and interacted with the insects and reptiles.
Next up was the fruit farm. They may have seen the fruits in the supermarkets but definitely not hanging on the trees! We had wows and oooahs throughout the tour. To satisfy their taste buds, they got a treat to an all-you-can-eat fruits buffet!
They also did some shopping at the fruits farm. After which was dinner. Though they had just eaten fruits, the hour long journey made them famished. When the dishes came, you could see the joy on their faces.
