What to do in Animal Shows (Bali, Indonesia Part 2)
December 31, 2011
Have you ever been part of an animal show? Nico and I went to Bali Safari and Marine Park as part of our tour and watched two shows — the (main) Animal Show and the Elephant Show. We were chosen as guests for both.
It was supposed to be just a joke. The host was asking for a volunteer from the audience during the main show — you know how it is, right? So I decided to take Nico’s hand and wave it frantically up the air. I guess they thought she was the most excited (they didn’t know she was highly embarrassed by my madness) so she chose her. The instruction was simple. Feed the eagle.
Simple right? It’s already a cool experience in itself, but what made us want to do it again is because the prize is a P1,200 worth ticket to a cultural show in the Safari Theater. For one person. And there were two of us.
So come the Elephant Show, it was my turn to wave excitedly and embarrass myself (except that I rarely get embarrassed). And again, of course, the Vida was chosen.
Lovely. Two free tickets to a cultural show and a one-of-a-kind onstage experience. Not bad methinks.
Vida is a restless, universe-loving, forever-child with a very short attention span. She is mostly enthusiastic about travel, adventure, technology, fitness, and lately, life hacks. Most of her days are spent on tech partnerships in a telco, and most nights practicing capoeira (or yoga, or boxing, or trying some other unheard of art of movement). She likes experiments, little projects, and writes too, sometimes, at vidasioson.com. And if you're interested, sh... Hey, look, a flower!
