Ah Meng, the orangutan that has draped her arms over my shoulder some 20 years ago on my first visit to the zoo. I am glad I did plucked up enough courage to sit beside her. With no avail I have been searching for days for that faded photo. She has left many, a lasting impression of how so like us orangutans are. She will be missed.

Actually I couldnt believe it when I watched the news and there were people crying at Ah Meng's funeral! There were more people and tears at this orang utan's funeral than some human funerals.

In her own ways she has given zoo visitors a glimpse of a gentle human side of orangutan.
