THE Singapore Zoo's most famous and well-loved Orang Utan, Ah Meng has passed away on Friday due to old age. She was approximately 50 years old.

For many Singaporeans, the Singapore Zoo is synonymous with Ah Meng, the Sumatran orang utan. In 1971, Ah Meng was confiscated from a Chinese family which had illegally kept her as a pet.

I will miss you dearly, just when I have plans to visit the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari for my short home trip next week :`-(

You are more of a woman than many other local female 'celebrities' ....x
