Since Christmas is fast approaching, I'd like to share something that a family could enjoy during this holiday season. Gusto ko lang ikwento ang pamilya ko at ang once in a blue moon getaway namin at the MOP (if you consider Manila as a getaway place. lol!)
After we experienced 88 resort last April of 2010, we never had a chance to be on a trip together for that entire year. Lagi kaming kulang kulang so it's really difficult for me to arrange one. Sila na ang busy at ako na ang tambay. hahaha! Isa pa, aminin naman natin na magastos talaga pag pamilya mo kasama mo. Luckily, Chyng offered a promo tickets worth 500 each a few months ago. That includes entrance to Oceanarium, Marine Life Show and Habitat (sea lions), Jellies, Fish Spa and Musical Fountain Show. I grabbed it right away. Thank you so much girl! That's an awesome 55.36% off (may butal talaga e. hahaha!) Check out MOP site at www.manilaoceanpark.com for more details. First time ko to! Tara! Pasok tayo!
Marine Life Show and Habitat
Marine Life Show and Habitat
I'm not sure kung kelan siya naging open as part of their main attractions. We've been here last year (without my dad) to watch the Musical Fountain Show lang. Wala pa ito nun. Yeah.. technically it was not our first time but I really don't consider it because we had seen just one. Dahil 3:30pm na kami dumating.. oo 3:30 nga. Halos patapos na ang araw, chaka pa lang kami magsisimula. hay naku! Ayun, pang last full show na kami kumbaga. Haggard kakatakbo. While waiting for the gate to be opened, we sneaked in a bit on the other side which is the Marine Life Habitat...

Meet the stars...
|Give it up for Isabel!|
|Claps for charming Icis (and the yummy trainer! <3)|
|Salute! (parang hindi naman. parang umaamoy lang ng kilikili. hahha!)|
I was smiling the whole time. My family loved it. To give you a sneak preview of how trained they are (as if the pictures are not enough), check out this clip..
Need I say more? Well, aside from the gigantic waves, these creatures have the power to stop me from the thing I'd love to do most - snorkeling. They almost ruined my Anilao Trip last year because I saw a lot of them peeping from the water when we were about to jump from the outrigger boat. Who would thought they can be lovely sometimes..
|Jelly or Janitor fish? ^_^|
|Blue...... Uhmmm... shit ang dami nila. hahaha! Fail|
|Pink... 10! Bwiset! hahaha!|
|Red blood cells up close. hahaha!|
|Beki Jelly! hihihi!|
|Ah yan? Ako yan bakit ba! ^_^|
I'm an under water fan. I guess most of my readers knew it. Whenever I capture sea creatures from my trip, I feel very proud blogging it since it's a rare opportunity to encounter such. Wowing my family and friends is such a great achievement for me specially I'm a no pro. My D10 have always been my travel buddy and for the record, I have made a total of 5 underwater entries (kala mo karamihan e no. lol!). You might want to check it out na ren. O sige kahit wag na lahat, yung Coron na lang please hahah! Ok! Enough of this promotion... hihihi!
Again, nung nakita ko sila.. I admit na naboring na ko kasi para na lang akong nagre- reminisce. Yung tipong "ah yun pala tawag sa kanya.", "ay ang liit. Yung nakita ko sa Bohol sing laki ng muka ko e". Yung ganun.. Hahaha! Isa pa.. I realized, mas mahirap pala kumuha ng shot sa aquarium kesa sa tubig mismo. Mangani-ngani kong ipasok ang kamay ko sa loob nung ibang aquarium.
Itong mga succeeding shots, mga first time kong nakita kaya kahit ma-effort silang kunan sa likot, keri na rin. Check it out!
|irregular shaped fish? (sorry hindi ko alam tawag diyan e :f)|
|Rock fish it is! (prang hunyangong nakiki kulay sa environment niya)|
|Uod? hahah! hindi ko natingnan forgive me.. :$|
|My dad and mom (na over expose sa mga blog entries ko. hahah!)|
|My younger brother Kevin (at ang epal na nakangiting pagiw :D)|
|My kuya PJ and his gf Maggie :L|
Musical Fountain Show
What separates point and shoot with SLR is the night mode. I really had a hard time capturing the moment. Pagtiyagaan nyo na lang ang mga kuha ko last year ha.
All in all we had a great time. Ilang buwan na naman ang bubunuin para makumpleto kami sa galaan. hihihi! (Seat Sale! Paramdam ka naman o) Sana na-enjoy nyo ang entry na to! Sa uulitin! :k
