Educational Tour:- Singapore Crocodile farm

I have decided to class this tour as educational tour rather as farm tour. The reason being, crocodiles here are no longer farmed for their skin or meat, but for their abilities to draw valuable tourist to this location.

During my visit to this crocodile farm, I was informed on the type, life cycle and feeding habits of the 4 different types of crocodile rear there. One important point that remains with me is that alot of this crocodiles can live up to 100 plus plus years. In fact, some of the crocodiles reared in the farm has been around for more than thirty years. Of course, these are the lucky ones; most of them are slaughter for their skin and meat in the past before they reach their prime.

During the tour, food will be fed to the crocodile and you can witness for yourself, your chances of survivor if you are ever caught in the jaws of one. I reckon it should be the same as winning 4D.

After the feeding session, it is time to visit the old factory where crocodile skins were being process. It is a really labour intensive job.

At the end of the tour, one can wonder around the retail outlet that sell products make of real crocodile skin...guarantee!

This tour will be classified as part of educational tour.

Educational Tour :- Skynest warehouse

Folks I am back from the Subaru 2010 Challenge! Unfortunately due to disqualification I am out at around 48 hours. I was disqualified as I use my wrong hand to remove my spectacles during one of the water spray session. Anyway, I will take part again next year as this challenge is indeed quite addictive and rejuvenating!

Okay, my next update is another birdnest warehouse. Why one more birdnest warehouse you asked? This one is unique among the competitors as they hired a NUS (One of the leading University in Singapore) to explain to the participants how to differentiate between a real bird nest and those fakes one.

Apart from explaining the visual cues that participants can use, he also explain the laboratories usage of spectrometer, reagents and other methods which I shall not elaborate here as I do not understand them myself.

During the visit, participants get to have a small taste of birdnest and taste the different between their high quality birdnest compare with other competitors. Buyers of birdnest also have a free gift of a electric thermal pot!

This tour will be conducted as part of educational and warehouse tour.
