Koalas pick nicknames with S'pore flavour
Call them Cantik, Sayang, Nila and Manja. The koalas at the Singapore Zoo picked new local nicknames for themselves yesterday. At the name selection ceremony, zookeepers offered each koala two stalks of eucalyptus leaves with the name choices attached on tags. The one they chose determined their nicknames. The koalas were formerly known as Chan, Idalia, Paddle and Pellita.
