Manila Ocean Park

It's been a couple of months since I last saw my niece and Im missing her so much. That's why I decided to visit her and thought of taking her to Manila Ocean Park since its on my bucketlist. Kaya lang may sakit sya nung araw ng pagbisita ko. So hindi kami nakalabas. I told her to get well soon para makapunta kami sa may "maraming fish". She agreed and got excited.

She called me after a week. "Tita Nang magaling na ko, punta na tayo sa maraming fish." But I have been busy that time so I told her next week na lang. Pumayag naman sya. After another week tumawag na naman pero di pa rin ako pwede. Siguro naka-5 times syang tumawag saken para ipaalala ang Ocean Park. This is what I like about of my niece, she really have a sharp memory.

And then last Sunday, together with my mom I finally got the time to take her to the Ocean Park. It's our first time to be there kaya pati ako na-excite din. I think we three have the same level of excitement.

They have early Christmas promo packages. So instead of availing the regular oceanarium fee we availed a package amounting to P499 that originally cost P850. It includes Oceanarium, Sea Lion Show and it's Marine Life habitat and Jellies. For more info about their promo you can check it here.



Past 1pm na at hindi pa ko kumakain ng kahit ano mula pagkagising ko so we decided to eat first before exploring. Dahil walang Jollibee doon sa Pancake House kami napadpad.


my mom's pick, seafood gembo

roast beef: I ordered this one. Naubos ko in just a blink.
We finished our late lunch at almost 2pm, just in time for the Sea Lion Show.

The show didnt started on time. Sobrang kinukulit na ko ni pamangkin. Ang tagal tagal daw magsimula. She's really excited and even shouted "tagal naman!" over the crowd. Hindi na sya mapakali sa upuan na parang sinisilihan ang pwet! Para hindi sya masyado mainip, I bought popcorn. Paubos na sya nong magsimula ang show.


Tuwang tuwa si pamangkin habang nanonood. I can see it cause she just keep on clapping, smiling and laughing the whole time. Im glad she enjoyed and the thought of it makes me happy as well.


The trainor have choosen one from the audience to interact with the sea lion. That girl was really lucky to have kissed by Henry (sea lion's name, if I really heard it right lols).

After they entertained us we move forward to see their marine life habitat.


Then we went to the much awaited ni pamangkin na maraming fish.


May 7 parts daw yung Oceanarium pero hindi ko na napansin kung anu ano yung mga yun dahil sa kababantay kay pamangkin. She was so overwhelmed by a lot of fishes she didnt even know where to go first. Kami naman ni mudra habol lang ng habol sa kanya ay mali ako lang pala kasi si mommy nag-eenjoy din sa maraming fish haha!


Actually super nag-enjoy din naman ako. I love sea creatures! Sobrang nag-eenjoy ako sa snorkling. Natutuwa kasi ako pag nakakakita ako ng maraming fish. Isnt it amazing how they look, they swim, they live. Feeling ko nga isa akong sirena sa huli kong buhay eh. Nakakatawa lang na ngayon eh hindi ako marunong lumangoy. Pangarap ko rin marating ang Great Barrier Reef at lumangoy sa kalaliman ng Pacific Ocean.

The pictures below were some of the fishes that really fascinated me inside the Oceanarium of Manila Ocean Park.

I forgot it's name. They dont move nor swim. They're just like that, very still.


look at their teeth!
this one swims up and down, up and down..grabe nahilo ako sa kanya
Sa sobrang dami ng fish hindi ko na sinubukang tandaan ang mga name nila kasi for sure magraramble lang sila sa utak ko sa sobrang dami.

The Oceanarium was very crowded that day. I just thought maybe because its a Sunday. Kaya hindi na rin kami masyado nagtagal at dumerecho na kami sa ibang attractions. If you easily get irritated by crowd, I suggests you go here on weekdays.

We really enjoyed a lot. A great recreation experience with my two favorite girls. Next visit, I'll surely wait for the musical fountain show (7pm) and will watch the Penguins.


P.S.
Hi friends! I already have this on my draft a day after our visit to the Ocean Park pero hindi ko natapos dahil sa aking mata. I have a sore eyes. Kaya sa mga pictures makikita nyo na hindi pantay yung mata ko at namumula na yung kaliwa. Ako na ang pasaway, may sore eyes na nakuha pang gumala at eto pinilit na tapusin ang post na to at magbloghop kahit na nararamdaman ko ng sumasakit na naman sya.

my left eye on its 4th day...natupad ang dream kong maging singkit


I cant stand to stare at the monitor kahit sandali lang nai-stress kagad yung mata ko at sumasakit. Kaya hindi ako makapagbasa ng blog updates nyo. I cant bake, I cant read, I cant go out, and I still cant see Breaking Dawn 2. I feel so useless! Ang dami kong kailangang gawin na hindi ko magawa. One week na sya ngayon, hindi pa rin gumagaling. But I already saw a doctor yesterday and hopefully gumaling na sya sa mga ne-resetang gamot. Sabi ni mudra umuwi muna daw ako sa aming resthouse kubo sa Batangas at doon magpagaling. I'll be leaving tomorrow and will stay there until my eyes get well. Ang dami ko ng na-miss na blog updates nyo. I will visit your blogs pagbalik ko. Sobrang miss ko na kayo! Bye for now.

  1. Hala ipahinga mo muna ang mga mata mo... baka na infect sa pamamasyal... wag mo masyadong hawakan.... sana gumaling na...

    Mukhang enjoy na enjoy si pamangkin... isipin mo ilang linggo niyang hinintay ang makakita ng maraming fish...

  20. Ang sweet mo namang tita, your niece sure looked like she had a lot of fun. I'd been to Manila Ocean Park before but during that time they don't have the Sea Lion show yet. And yeah, the jellyfish, wala nyan before!

    I've always thought that it's too expensive, but I think kids will love it.

    I hope your sore eyes are gone na sis. Kung di pa, get well soon.
