During year end (yeah, this is back dated, but just enjoy the photos), we tried to plan as many activities for the girls to occupy their holidays as well as to use up our annual leave meaningfully. One of the places we went to was Farm In The City, located in Sri Kembangan.
We took a family package, which came out to about RM98 (if I recalled correctly) for 4 of us, and then we added another adult ticket as we brought along Minerva, our helper.
The girls love it! It’s better than the zoo (animals are not caged up), or Sunway Petting Zoo. The animals are healthy, and the girls get really close to the animals.
Check out the photos, and have a look at the variety of animals visitors can get close to.
Feeding a big gigantic tortoise.
The birds we saw were more interesting than that found in the KL Bird Park, and what’s better than being able to get so close to them. Touching them, feeding them, seeing them perform tricks etc.

Getting a chance to feed the bird, and the girls get to pat it.
Feeding a colourful pigeon
Girls feeding the birds, although they were a bit afraid of being pecked.
The children were able to get close to the animals, observe them, photograph them and touch them.
A cheeky ram standing on its hind legs when being fed vegetables.
They had lots of fun feeding this huge buffalo with the park ranger.
They spent a lot of time feeding the rabbits, carrying them, petting them. If it wasn’t closure time (and the rabbits have to be returned to their hutches), they would have stayed there forever!
There’s a drain like stream filled with ‘longkang fish’ (Malay : fish drain) for visitors to try to fish them with a net.
Friendly park rangers were stationed everywhere to help and assist visitors.
We got to feed some lemurs too (the monkeys found in Madagascar cartoon), but they were very shy and quick to dash off after they got their food.
There’s a chicken hatchery to see newly hatched chickens.
I thought the girls’ favourite would be patting the rabbits, but the best has yet to come!
At the end of the farm, there were some smart and well-trained macaws waiting to be fed seeds, carried around, and Zara liked this part the most.

This naughty one kept trying to pry off metal from us. It tried to peck off my bracelet, and then when Zara handled it, it tried to peck on Zara’s glasses frame.
Farm In The City is absolutely worth a visit. Another place the girls want to go again and again.
I do hope they keep up the good work, and continue to keep their animals healthy.
