I guess most of you heard of the news that Ah Meng passed away last friday (8 Feb 2008). She was 48 years old and had died of old age.
Ah Meng, the Sumatran orang utan, is an icon in the Singapore Zoo. She is such a big star that almost everyone knows her. And when a kid saw a Orang Utan in the Zoo, chances are they will point at it and shout “Ah Meng” instead of Monkey or Orang Utan.
Goodbye Ah Meng. We will miss you.
