manila ocean park

manila ocean park! first oceanarium here daw… hehehe. i guess it is a good thing to come here at around this time of the year as most students are about to take a break and there’s almost no school field trips being done.

we started with this marine life habitat thing featuring some lethargic south american sea lions. they’re like cats, they’d scratch themselves like one every now and then. they’d roll over and doze off like one too. so… i want a sea lion for my birthday!

after that we moved on to the jellyfish area which they called jellies, dancing sea fairies. they’re really pretty to look at and they seem to be having the time of their life dancing to canon in d and getting colored light projected around them. i think the ones above look like rainbow lychees and the ones below are…

after the show, we moved on to the ocenarium which is divided in to sections. they have this sort of rainforest area,where we found a nice snoozing crocodile, who must be one of the richest ones in the world… he’s literally sleeping on money.

we also found a drunk starfish. it must have had more than a few shots of tequila.

lakad lakad lang kami ni maki till we reached the area where they have underwater viewing… which is basically roving stingrays, bored sharks, and an assortment of giant fish inside the glass. outside the glass, are screaming toddlers, running toddlers, and people with cameras. hahaha!

finally, we went to the musical fountain show… where they play music, send out colorful water jets in varying heights, and laser lights too. it was mostly a kids’ show but i find the water designs cool. and the best part is that the show reminds everyone how important the ocean is and that from it there is beauty, bounty, and blessings.

tapos… umuwi na kami ni maki. hahaha! salamat sa pagsama sakin, i had a great time, learned a lot about fish and other sea creatures, might not be eating fish for a while… but this was one nice adventure! pixxors were taken by maki and i, mostly maki… more here.

yun lang.
