1-day tour - Yakult factory + Fish farm

We took leave to take our powerpuff gals out for the day. Joined a 1-day tour that took us to the Qian Hu Fish Farm, Yakult factory, Fragrance foodstuff @Woodlands Industrial estate. Not bad deal for S$5 per pax.

Lots of excitement for the gals, it rubbed off on me too. Feel so good to have quality time with the 3 of them together. With each of them having school, childcare, enrichment classes and plus us adults dealing with our work commitments, it is really precious to spend a whole day out enjoying one another's company.

Saw lots of fish at the farm. It is a nice place to spend time admiring the many many species of fish, some of which even I have not seen before. Lots of koi and luohan fish around too. Still rem the craze in Singapore some years back over the bulging head luohan fish, with the unique patterns on its body that most rears swear are 4-D (lottery) numbers? When Bubbles saw them, she said the fish so funny, why does it look like they have stickers pasted on their body? She was referring to the patterns. Some see them as magic numbers, but to most of us, we see them as patches or "stickers" :)

There are 3 pools for fish spa at the farm (where you can place your feet in the water and let the little fish nibble them). And there are koi and tortoise ponds where my gals enjoyed feeding them fishfood (bought at S$1 each small pack). They found it really fun to feed them, maybe they do not get much opportunities to do so usually.

Next stop was the Yakult factory, where we were given a tour around the premises and briefed about the unique bacteria in the product etc. I was also very excited about this tour, as never been to such a factory before. Of course there was free yakult to drink and discounted items to buy.

After the tours ended, there was still time and off we went for a movie. Actually it is the first time that we took our gals to the cinema after all these years since I had my 1stborn. As since their age gaps are pretty close, we were never ready to bring our young gals to the cinema. Anyway, they are still not able to sit still for a full-length movie.
