The only King of Beast, at the Singapore Zoological Garden, there's 3 female lion to keep him company there.
Courting lions can mate every 15 minutes for 3 days, by the 3rd day, they would have mated 200-300 times!
The male often bites the female on the neck immediately after mating, the 'Love Bite' is believed to trigger the egg release from the ovary for sucessful fertilization. Jaguars and leopards do this too.
It's very easy to keep this little 6 years old niece of mine occupied, just give her some paper and crayon or pencil colors and she's happy as a bunny!
More colors can be found at Martha's color carnival, just click on the banner above.

Here's something I found around my little island of Singapore:
Colourful traditional Indian dresses hanging in a shop in Serangoon Road or famously known as the Little India. Brightly coloured bangles to match the dresses too, take your pick.
One corner of the zoo, where flowering shrubs are planted to attract the butterfly.
It's common to see people of all ages wearing brightly coloured clothes here, wonder what these kids were looking at?
......just these beautifully coloured kois in a pond at the bottom of the Singapore Flyer..
Beautiful bird feeding on fruits at Jurong Bird Park.
Even the signboard at the Bird Park is in bright colours!
Flowers of all colours and sizes at the annual Sentosa Flower Festival, early this year.Sentosa is the resort island accessible by cable car, monorail and a road access from the mainland.
Beside flowers there's fruits/ vegetables on display too..
Fruits being sold by a fruit seller at Chinatown, almost all kind of fruits are available there and at every fruit stalls around the island.The last photo is of a home cooked meal prepared by me, a simple luffa ( ridged gourd) soup and steamed fish with soft tofu , served with a plate of black soya sauce with crushed bird's eye chilli and lime juice-it's fiery hot I tell you! All are eaten with plain white rice.
I hope you enjoy the pictures I've posted here. For more links to participating bloggers, click HERE.

It comes in variety of shapes, I first bought them to give away, but I changed my mind later on kept them on display in the living room.
This Coat of Arms was photographed at the gate of the Istana , the official residence of the President of Singapore, but it's used mostly for meeting of overseas delegates and occasional meetings of the ministers, since the President stayed in his own personal home. The Istana's ground is open for public viewing, together with the one part of the istana, during it's open house, a few times a year , but security is always very tight. Every visitor will be have to go to a metal detector and bags screened.No food and drinks allowed in too,at other ther time , it's strictly off limit to the public.
The coat of arms of
The National Coat of Arms or State Crest consists of a shield with a white crescent moon and five white stars against a red background. Red symbolises universal brotherhood and equality of men; white, purity and virtue. The five STARS represent the ideals of democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality. Supporting the shield are a lion on the left and a tiger on the right. The lion represents
The Coat of Arms or State Crest was unveiled on 3 December 1959 together with the National Flag and the National Anthem at the installation of the Yang di-Pertuan Negara at the City Hall steps.
This photo was taken in Bali, 2006, at Hard Rock Cafe, just next to our hotel opposite the Kuta Beach.We did went in and spend some time there.
This last photo was taken just a few weeks ago, when I went with a friend to the historical Fort Canning Park for a photoshoot. STAR burst effect, still qualified under this meme, don't you think so?
For more of the STARS do drop by Carly's site.

Here are some of the photos I have in my album:
Metal parts of a bench, waiting for someone to have a rest, at the resort island of Sentosa.
Metal archway leading to the beach at Sentosa Island.
Another view of the metal archway.
Metal casing of old CPU,waiting to be recycled. Saw them at an alley in Serangoon Road area, or commonly known as the Little India of Singapore for it many shops catered to the Indian population's needs.
Metal railings around the old colonial building which has been turned into a museum.
Alexandra Arch Bridge which is just in front of the HortPark- South East Asia's first gardening hub , along the Alexandra Road.
The bridge, with its curved deck and tilted arch, spans across Alexandra Road like an opened leaf.
While walking on the metal flooring of the bridge, I saw some workers ......
cutting more metals....
