After decades of corporate life, I am changing my career into tourism. From my base in Penang, Malaysia, I conduct day trips and overnight trips all across Malaysia. My tour can be custom made for big group or followed a fixed itinerary for small group. I particularly like trivia stuff and would like to share interesting facts about my hometown and country.

Asian Eyes' Korea - Zootopia
Bugs Garden - an attraction in Zootopia featuring bugs.
Day 6, 22/Nov/2012, 12.00 pm: We were at Yongin Everland, South Korea. Now that we were done with Safari World, we spent some time to tour the attractions in Zootopia. Zootopia is an animal themed portion. We saw a petting zoo, pony rides, animal shows, Bugs Garden, Dark Forest and 3D and 4D shows. There is also a small zoo with polar bears, sea lions, penguins, bears, tigers and primates. Amazon Express is a raft ride, where most visitors get wet to varying degrees. The petting zoo provides animals such as goats and sheep to pet. Kosik, one of Zootopia's elephants, made headlines when he demonstrated an ability to imitate Korean words.
Before lunch we attended a 4D show that featured Korean speaking cartoon characters. Apart from the usual 3D spectacle effect, the moving seats , air and mist blowing, there was also sensation of scurrying rats that touches our leg. There were shriek from visitors once they sensed some 'rats' ran across their legs. Only Little M enjoyed the show and asked to have another go but by then it was already lunch time. Lunch at Everland was a regimented affair. There were 4 menus to choose from and they came in a set of main course, a salad/kimchi, soup and drink. Well, we finished up quickly and heads off to other parks in Everland.
