Be a Panda Party Planner!

SINGAPORE - Next month marks the first anniversary of the arrival of the giant pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia at River Safari, and the birthdays of the pair.

Wildlife Reserves Singapore is looking for 10 individuals to be "Panda Party Planners".

Five of these lucky participants will be chosen by My Paper in an exclusive contest.

As a party planner, you'll be among the first to get a behind-the- scenes look at the giant pandas, by accompanying their keepers on a visit to River Safari's bamboo nursery and the Giant Panda Forest kitchen.

You'll have a first-hand experience of what it's like to be a panda keeper.

The party planners will assist Kai Kai and Jia Jia's keepers in preparing a special birthday cake and enrichment toy for the pandas on Aug 31.

During a private panda-party event on Sept 6, the planners will present these birthday surprises to Kai Kai and Jia Jia.
