Burung kakak tua,
hinggap di jendela,
nenek sudah tua,
giginya tinggal dua,

let-trum, let-trum, let-trum hoo la la (3x)
burung kakak tua

(English Translation)
Old Sister Bird
Perched on the window sill
Grandma is now quite old
Of her teeth, only two remain

let-trum, let-trum, let-trum hoo la la (3x)
Old Sis-ter Birrrrd!

(Lyrics, kindly remembered by ladyleo0408)

Ask any local and he'll tell you that Changi Village is a haven for parrots. Of course, when I think of parrots, I think of the old nursery rhyme that my grandma loved to sing. Burung Ka Ka Tua is the local name for parrot and sometimes a name to label a talkative person. Since I love these parrots and I love this song, Here's a slideshow for the parrots that I photographed in Changi Village. It has the Tanimbar Corellas, Yellow-Crested Cockatoos, Red Breasted Parakeets in it.

    For those living far away, the name of Singapore evocates a large city with skyscrapers and certainly not a birds' watcher paradise! A beautiful page with superb photos!

    Smashing baby, this is the kind of Powers chicken that i am talking about. The Brown-necked Raven's mum was (pigeon) rape victim by common raven. Just kidding. ;->

    Did you try the famous nasi lemak and Charlie's corner's fish and chips? I am thinking about food again, esp after my detox. Gees.
