Inside the Oceanarium

Inside the Oceanarium

In my third visit in Manila I finally able to make it at Manila Ocean Park! Taking UV Express Van from Paranaque where I stayed, DG Budget Hotel, to Roxas Boulevard cost Php 30.00.

I bought the Deep Sea Rush ticket for only Php 550.00, it’s a promo rate so it’s not that out of budget. Haha Lining up to buy a ticket won’t take that long, thumbs up for the fast tellers/cashiers. Sea Lion Show is my first stop.

After seeing those very cute sea mammals I head up directly to Oceanarium where you can find tons and a different sea creature that you haven’t seen yet.  If you are fond of Koi fish you might want to feed them but the pleasure of feeding them is not free. Stonefish is the weirdest yet interesting creature I’ve ever seen here. When you hear the Antarctic lovely Penguin are there, although I didn’t enter The Penguin Quest at least I experienced the Trails of Antarctic moment. HAHA

This is where I enjoyed myself most, welcome to the Jellies: Dancing Sea Fairies Exhibit. I was really amazed to these different jellies in the showroom, what my eyes seen goes through my heart.

Experienced the Sharks & Rays dry encounter in Ocean Park as well.

I didn’t watch the musical fountain show anymore cos it’s scheduled at 6:30 pm and my time is very limited as well. I need to go in Divisoria for the not-so-shopping list. I enjoyed my little time at Manila Ocean Park, I hope you enjoyed the photos I’ve shared here. It was a blueish day! 😉

The Prosperity Of Life!

Picture taken at Quinasanghan, Iponan, Cagayan de Oro

Time: Sunset

Story:

This was taken last July 15, Sunday. Our friend invited us to their Bible Club Launching. As we were waiting for a jeepney, I saw this another wonderful sunset and took a picture of it.

God is so good to let me witness another thing He created for us to cherish! Life!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer

Asia’s Longest Dual Zipline

 

This adventure was in my 2011 Summer. T’was so fun and we really enjoy every minute in that day. White water rafting in Philippines tho more likely popular in Rafting in Cagayan de Oro and Asia’s Longest Dual Zipline. Tho didn’t have a chance to roam around, Dahilayan has a beautiful view. Its really worth it even if you just hang out there, unwind, walk and tour around the place. And rafting was the most thrill of all. Its only me and fia are the girls in that boat. As I can remember, t’was the last rafting wave where our guide asked us both to sit in front. We have thought that they will intentionally drop us. Lucky fia cos she hold on too tight but the luckier me, experienced how to almost drown in that high current of wave. Haha.

Kaamulan Festival

Kaamulan Festival

Kaamulan 2012

You guys know that I’ve been struggling lately with my A.K.A busy schedule. Last week, I mention about Kaamulan Festival. Yes, I’ve been in Malaybalay for 2 nights and 2 days and of course, I left CDO with my friends making sure that I celebrated my mom’s birthday! 😀 That shouldn’t what I missed, right?!

with peri, the others were at the back 🙂

Uhm, what’s funny while we were still on the bus, there are a lot of thoughts coming in my mind and I can’t help it. So I asked my friends if they have some paper or something that I can write on then they told me: ‘Shira, we’re going to Kaamulan to enjoy not to do some school stuff’. (teasing me..really 😛 ) Well, writing is been so attach to me. Why I’m so eager to write? Well, who wouldn’t if you see this?

see?

I swear! It’s hard to get the perfect view while on the bus! 😛 Took it from my phone, sun is setting! 😉

We arrived at Malaybalay past 8 pm, traveled for almost 5hrs. Jeez, my butt quite sucks. LOL. Bus fare doesn’t sound bad! We stayed at Meriam’s aunt house at San Jose but before that, we stopped by to her other aunt’s house at Carvahal to have some dinner. Meriam’s dad was staying there and jeez, he is so accommodating. Palamine Family are accommodating!

the girls who made it 😀

Meriam’s aunt make pizza! Homemade .. yaYks!

We woke up around 6 am, fixing ourselves then head to the city to watch the street dancing!

hola

I belong to the flowers, am I? 😛

Mini garden of the house! Beautiful, isn’t?

Unfortunately, we arrived in the city late so we only saw the last three or four of the participants.

Walking with “Kadang-Kadang” you need a balance and focus. One thing to do this is practice. Jeez, I don’t know how to walk with that. Back in HS in our P.E, I didn’t have a chance to try it, the bell rang! LOL

There were so align , holding arm to arm!

Eagle! Flying high?

After the parade, sweet corn escapade! 😀

At first Peri, Sara and I hesitate to buy cos we were still full at that time we had a heavy breakfast but Meriam and Hana simply made us lick our lips! LOL

I went down after we back home for awhile at Carvahal! 😛

Suddenly I got tired, didn’t know that I took a nap 😛 and when I woke up, jeez… legs cramps! Then the girls decided to go back home to San Jose to rest a little bit cos there will be fireworks display late at night.

Unlucky gals!

Whooo… okay, we ride ‘Multicab’ going back to San Jose and we were lucky, at the middle of nowhere… flat tire dude! (“Flat tire get tired” ~ Tongue Twister for you guys 😛 )

I love the Nature 🙂

But heck nooo, we were stuck in the beautiful area. Nature around us! 😀

The lady in grey, standing next to meriam it’s Chimbe. Meriam’s cousin!

hmmm, cos the first multicab was stuck we waited for another vehicle. T’was a bad experience because the driver deceived us, ladies. Cos we were not that familiar yet going to San Jose, we asked him to drop us in Luardo(landmark) but he didn’t. So the gals needed to walk 10-15 min under the sun to the house, we start walking(sweating much) 😦 but surprisingly driver hurried up to still catch up us and you know what he said to us? “Hey you should take a ride, Luardo is still far from here”! Damn dude, O.O we were really disappointed! Obviously, we’re going to pay again for that ride! It wasn’t money but how he treated people who are new the place is what matter most!

Ehem 😛

Okay! Night comes! 😀 Honestly, fireworks is what we supposed to wait at night but there’s a change of course. We were early indeed in Plateu 😛 We only got a glimpse to the beautiful fireworks 😛 Dang! LOL

Saturday night was fun, really.

What we experienced at the daylight was opposite when I and Meriam heading home to San Jose. There’s a guy name James. There’s no multicab yet and it was raining, not that heavy tho enough to make us soaked in the rain but not that much so he offered us a ride. Kuya_James is so kind. We ride in his motorbike and we were supposed to pay for it but he didn’t let us to give him even a single penny! Wow. Thank You so much Kuya_James for your kind heart! 😀

Peri and I 😀

Among the girls, only Peri and I weren’t able to come to Kaamulan last year and the three gals always telling us that there’s an amazing spot there! And here it, I forgot to ask Meriam what’s the name of the place.

I love greens!

too far 😛

more closer ~ loving it 😀

I Love Nature! Live Naturally, Shira! Treehugger! 😀 😀

Before we head to the terminal, we took our lunch at Carvahal. I’m not a fan of Chicken Curry but dude, Palamine family cooked it well and I’m loving it much now! Whew…

Happy Blogging Everyone!
