It was supposed to be a normal day at work, except that it wasn’t… well, at least for the latter half of that day: we were to bring out some elderlies from St. John’s Home For Elderly Persons to the zoo! The date was set and the snacks were bought (and brought) when the day arrived. We made our way to the home in anticipation, not knowing exactly what to expect.

Wangz Hotel, Singapore [Guest Post]
