Mommy Moments - Encounter With Animals

mommy moments

Among the downfalls of living in A city is the limited exposure with animals. Here in Dubai, you do not see stray dogs. they may be a few cats you will see but they are more interested in rummaging the rubbish shoot for food. Then there are the birds - surprisingly you see plenty of them flying around here in the desert. But of course we can only watch, point it out to Andreas, and marvel at their flight.

And so a couple of months before Andreas turned 1, we brought him to Al Ain Zoo - it was more of a safari trip and i guess we adults enjoyed it more than our baby so I move on to his other adventures when he actually enjoyed watching the animals.

This is the first time he saw ducks - a month before his first birthday. It was his first holiday too, so we took him to Irish Village and there was this huge pond with a few ducks frolicking.

Earlier that month, we took Andreas to Dubai Aquarium & Rainforest Animals. This is his first time see sand sharks, stingray, piranha, penguin and all the other exotic animals.

Since we wanted to make his first holiday extra special, we took him also to The Boardwalk where we hoped to feed the birds, but first we made a quick stop on the restaurant above called The Aquarium. This is the first restaurant in Dubai with such feature. Luckily, a diver was cleaning the tank and accommodating enough to goof around with Andreas.

And lastly, Andreas favorite adventure is a trip to Atlantis, The Palm. Above is a picture of his third visit. He screams in delight whenever a huge fish swim near him.

Join us for Mommy here.

Kakatuwa naman si Andreas :)

I think he's so much into marine wildlife ah- maybe he can have aquarium at home na.

Happy weekend!
