Sometime this year, I participated in my first night run, the Osim Sundown Marathon. Next year, I am going to do my first run in the zoo, my first day run and it will also be my first run in year 2017.
Its true, they say life is made of many first. Let these be a learning experience for you, for your family and make use of every available opportunity to spend time with your family and friends, besides running is good for the heart, health and soul.
Earlier this year when my friend mentioned that she was going for the Safari Zoo Run 2016, I was so excited and wanted to tag along but I couldn’t because the invite came too last minute. Next year, there shall be no more excuses! I will make it happen.
The last time i visit the zoo was back in 2010. The first few years when I was still dating with my then boyfriend (now husband). The zoo is a very nice place to spend some quality time together especially if you are an animal lover like us, so we’re really looking forward to this run. The photo collage above was dig out from our 2010’s collection so pardon the quality of the photos.
We will be looking to explore the Zoo after the run for sure. Since its 7 years since we’ve visited the place.

Safari Zoo Run was conceived to commemorate Singapore Zoo’s famous matriarch and one of Singapore’s most loved animal personalities —Ah Meng the Sumatran orangutan, who died of old age in February 2008.
[Ah Meng was my favourite character in the zoo, even after she passed on because of my early memories as a child. We love seeing “breakfast with Ah Meng” and she always appears friendly with so much warmness, and charm. These animals are also very human-like, therefore they connect the best with me. ]The objectives of this run are to encourage family bonding and raise awareness on wildlife conservation.Next year (2017), we shall all run for wildlife as the run focuses on raising awareness for wildlife conservation. Each of these animal icon team supports an endangered wildlife species that Singapore Zoo would like to raise awareness for. Choose an animal team to support and help raise awareness for.
There are 4 animal icons namely: –
1. Ah Meng – Orangutan
2. Chawang – Asian Elephant
3. Canola – Manatee
4. Sunny – Hornbill
I guess by now you know that I will be supporting Team Ah Meng because of the love I have for orangutans.
