December babies, most of the Sagittarius and some of those Capricorns, great news for you and your plans this month: Zoo Negara, Malaysia’s national zoo and home of the delightful panda enclosure, is offering you free entry during the month of December.

TL;DL: free entry, which includes the Giant Panda Conservation Center, will only be offered ON YOUR ACTUAL BIRTHDAY. Great news if you’re a student, on school holidays, with nothing to do on a Tuesday. Slightly less convenient if you’re gainfully employed, with a Wednesday December 6th birthday, and fresh out of MCs to call in sick.

Zoo deputy President Rosly Rahmat Ahmat Lana told Bernama that the promotion was to encourage visitors to come to the newly renovated Zoo.

The news has gone viral on social media, because — well — people love free stuff.

Fancy redeeming your December birthright? Just bring your IC to the Zoo on your birthday.

Just a Gemini, struggling with your dueling personalities, but still love, and want to visit, some sleepy pandas?

Regular admission is RM44 (US$10) for adults, RM21 (US$4.50) for senior citizens and RM16 (US$4) for children aged 2 to 12.
