We had just 1 more day in Dubai before we flew out to Kuwait,
Amidst all the options we had, was Ski Dubai. I immediately jumped at the opportunity to meet penguins. Who cares about skiing :p
(I do, but priority is always Mr. Happy Feet!)
So we went to Ski Dubai, got us tickets , suited up and went in to their little crib with our group.
We were taught a bit about penguins, their personalities and their habitat. Then, they let us pose with this super star!
These guys are sooo cute! And smart and intelligent! They played with toys, listened to the trainer's commands and fetched like little puppies!
He was attracted to Gil from the beginning. He was mesmerized with her pearly whites.
I mean, he didn't even want to be in the same frame as me .
I'm sitting there, aaallll by mySSEeellff...don't wanna bee..and pretending to pose with Mr.Happy Feet, when he's all about Gil Gil.
Then we were given the chance to feed them.
Gil wanted to enjoy the entire experience, so she removed her glove, to feel him feed from her hand.
Well, he pecked her! :'D
Then, 2 others were put on their stands so that we could hug and kiss them (literally)
Once again, they just didnt appreciate me. My penguin got off her stand, walked over to Gilda's penguin, pushed that one off, and stood there. :/
and it pooped! hahahahhaha!
She kissed him anyway. yea, there was contact!
(later Gil told me that it tasted fishy.. hahahhahahhahha)
I just preferred to pet her. They weren't into me anyway. I didn't want no penguin to attack me while kissing it!
but I did manage a hug (a little reluctant, but that'll do!)
Just wanted to share a few pictures with you. Hope you enjoyed them :)
