Manila Ocean Park - Oceanarium

Hi Readers!

  MANILA - And so my blog life goes on...Now here's my Part 2 of our Manila Ocean Park adventure (medyo late lang sorry). If you want to read my previous entry about Manila Ocean Park click here. Warning I attached lots of photo's (as in marami ha!) on this blog so sorry for those who have slow internet connection or slow PC/Laptop. Just sit, relax and enjoy reading :)
  I'm really excited to share with you my remarkable experienced in visiting this marine theme park. So tara na pasyal tayo!
1. Entrance - kala mo daan pa puntang C.R. lang ha!ha!ha! :)
2. As you get in, staff will get your ticket (the girl wearing yellow t-shirt) then you'll see a big graffiti in the wall (the girl wearing red t-shirt is Rose, she took some picture of graffiti)

3. Nag-aapela pa si mama sa kumukuha ng ticket na dapat free entrance si Venice kaso lagpas siya ng 2 feet (she's so tall at her age)
4.  This is what you see upon entering Oceanarium. Ma-aamaze kayo sa una niyong makikita kasi ...
...huge fish talaga ang sasalubong sa inyo.
(as in big ha! look at my sister hand ganyan kalaki yong fish)
Giant Arowana
Si Mama amaze pa rin sa laki ng mga marine creatures na nasa loob ng aquarium na ito
while ang sister ko naman ay walang tigil ang kaka picture eh simula pa lang naman ng adventure namin sa Oceanarium. 
More picture :) Mukhang haggardousss na ang lola niyo dito mukha talagang puyat :) Look walang make-up...walang tulog
Stairs going to Bahura
Rain forest (there's a mini waterfall-check the middle picture above)
1. Lolong???? no ibang crocodile 'to. (may isa pa akong nakitang crocodile dyan) makikita mo yan habang paakyat ka sa hagdaan 2. One of their rule is don't use camera flash 3. perana 4. pwedeng magpa-picture dito as I remember the photo fee cost P50.00 feysos 5. My best shot :) 6. parang tilapia lang 7. close encounter with mini shark and other fish 8. pwedeng hawakan yang starfish.
Before you enter Bahura you'll see this reminders (Oceanarium House Rule) 1. NO flash photography 2. NO food and drinks  3.  NO running 4. NO smoking 5. NO pets allowed.

So tara pasok na tayo....scroll down.....
BAHURA - BAHURA means sand
1. I like that polka dots fish (fashionista lang ang peg!) No that fish called Clown Triggerfish
2. Cory's fish kasi yellow fish :)
3.  Longhorn Cowfish o Baka-baka (may horns o sungay kasi ang fish na ito, yon ang kakaiba sa kanya) ang life span niya 8 years.
4,5,8 - mga best shot ko for close shot
6. Common Seahorse - ang life span pala ng sea horse ay tumatagal ng up to 4-6 years (before I thought mabilis sila namamatay)
7. Shrimpfish or Razorfish - (ganyan talaga sila pahaba)
Wala ba kayong makita???? kasi..........
ito sila --Flashlight Fish..(totoong nailaw ang mga mata nila).
1. Lobster (my best close-up shot :)
2. Reef stonefish - did you know that fish can survive out of water for up to 20 hours.
3.  Snowflake Moray EEL "Igat" - with life span of 20 years. It is a large fish with no pectoral or pelvic fins, but has an extremely strong body that is uses to swim through the water like a snake does on land. The fish has a big mouth that packs a powerful bite. The body color consists of black and white patchy stripes and blotches which is where the Eel gets its common name "snowflake".
4. Blackspotted Pupper or "Butete - with life span of 12-25 years. It has a round shape with a head and snout which at times make it look like a seal or a dog. (highly poisonous to eat)
Manila Bay Tank
This tank contains unfiltered water pumped in directly from Manila Bay. Unlike the filtered sea water seen in the rest of the oceanarium tanks, here you can observe how the bay water looks like in its untreated state. It has been estimated that everyday, five million gallons of untreated sewage. One to two million kilos of toxic and hazardous wastes find their way into Manila Bay. However, despite its being extremely polluted, this water is still capable of supporting a variety of aquatic life such as mussels, barnacles, anemones, and marine worms.---sayang ang Manila Bay pero good things na rin may marine creatures pa rin ang nabubuhay dito tulad ng tahong. 


This section is called Laot
Ang laki lang ng mga fish...my eyes enjoy the view...wala akong nasabi kung hindi wow amazing (maybe those people were amazed too)
Si Mama nag-e-enjoy sa fish parang gusto ng iuwi sa amin :)
Fish look like as size as my niece size (tignan niyo yong pic.)
Ngayon pasok tayo sa Buhay na Karagatan
Inside the tunnel. See the background marami ang kumukuha din ng picture, pero you know what may mga pasaway pa rin ng gumagamit ng flash :(



Fish form a circular direction (yes, paikot-ikot lang sila dyan)
Siguro tong mga pating na 'to gutom na :) (look like shark's were hungry)
(my brother Leo sat beside the shark aquarium)
My best shot

  I know some of you think that the entrance was quite or a bit expensive, but believe me once you enter Oceanarium P400 pesos entrance fee is worth to pay for. The satisfying part was gaining some knowledge about marine life and discovering existence of the underwater creatures that grow as huge as we ever think off. . .
Thank you :)
