Manila Ocean Park

The Manila Ocean Park’s Oceanarium features an assortment of colorful fishes and invertebrates indigenous to the Philippines and Southeast Asia contained in 12,000 cubic meters of seawater. The journey is divided into six sections and each section will carry a Filipino name: “Agos”; “Bahura”; “Buhay na Karagatan”; “Pating”; “Ang Kailaliman”; and “Laot”. Its main attraction is a 25-meter long, 220 degree curved acrylic walkway tunnel.

The place is good for Kids and Young Adults who wants to experience and explore the marine Life. I might have a huge expectations on the place having seen Monterey Aquarium in California and Florida Aquarium in Tampa Florida. What’s funny here is when you hear kids and adults discussing about the fish features..what is that??? Oh my God its scary?? Daddy is that a fish bird? (huh?) most, some adults explaining to their kids…mukang tilapia lang? Probably, the information nearby the tanks should have a voice over and a tour guide is needed to explain properly to the guest and visitors the different kinds of fish, where they can be found and foremost, how rare they are now so Filipinos will start to protect our seas and stop throwing garbages in rivers and lakes. And now I sound like an environmentalist. For the Fishes! I crave for that Spider Crab and Lobster too by the way…their yummy.

Over-all, visit the place and support Manila Ocean Park.

When I need to go Malling, the most convenient and nearby to where I live is EastWood City. And with the new addition of EastWood Mall, it became a top most to go for movies, shopping, and dining. The place is very compact yet spacious for everyone who would want just to walk and relax . The lights at night is awesome and I cant help myself to include it in my photography collection. Also, if you visit the area, watch their dancing fountain too.
