Here's a shot of the monkeys in the Botanic Gardens. I'm squeezed between Alan and my dad. They were both quite happy feeding them but I was quite scared, as you can probably see in this picture! I probably wasn't much bigger than them at the time!
The monkeys all look pretty well behaved in this photo but as soon as they knew anyone had food, they'd pounce. As well as bananas, we used to give them peanuts which were sold in paper cones by people inside the gardens.
It's a shame that they're not still in the Singapore gardens nowadays. I'm sure everybody who is about my age, and who visited the gardens at the time,will have very fond memories of them.
