Manila: The Dancing Jellies of Manila Ocean Park

Manila Ocean Park Jellies Display Hallway

Manila Ocean Park Jellies Display Hallway

When at sea, jelly fishes creeps me out. When beach waters are populated by these I’m hesitant to swim through. Imagine getting scars, itchiness and even fatal wounds from them. Last thing I want is getting myself pee-ed on just to neutralize the poison, or so I heard. I know I try to avoid them when I see them but I also can’t help but be fascinated by them as well. These semi-transparent sea creatures are very graceful dancers of the sea. And I find them even more fascinating when I saw a lot of them in Manila Ocean Park’s separate exhibit, Jellies, Dancing Sea Faeries.

Sunway Lagoon Resort Pool and Hotels

Sunway Lagoon Resort Pool and 5-star Hotels

Coming in late at night the day before gave us only a limited amount of sleep. So by afternoon we were already loosing energy. Our drive to Petaling Jaya, Selangor for the Sunway Lagoon Resort from the Tugu Negara rendered most of us snatching some sleep. It was a 30 minutes drive. Good thing roads in Malaysia are smooth and wide. We arrived at Sunway Pyramid Mall where we had our lunch then an hour later we went down to Malaysia’s Premiere theme park, the Sunway Lagoon.

Tugu Negara Monument

Tugu Negara, Malaysia’s National Monument and the world’s largest bronze sculpture

Emerging fresh from the underwater world of Aquaria KLCC we were brought to a couple of Malaysia’s significant national sites – the Istana Negara and Tugu Negara. The word “Negara” actually means “nation”, hence the former is the National Palace also known as the King’s Palace and the later is the National Monument.

Coming from the Petronas Skybridge we went down the basement level of KLCC Suriya Mall and headed to a long pedestrian tunnel going to the Concourse level of Kuala Lumpur Convention Center to visit the Aquaria KLCC. I’m excited to see this and see how different it is from our very own Manila Ocean Park.

Elvises Walking in Enchanted Kingdom

It’s been quite sometime since I have visited Enchanted Kingdom, considered as the premier amusement park in the Philippines. So when the opportunity came through an email invitation from Myla of Enchanted Kingdom to take part on the event, I thought this would be a fun day and decided to join in with the other bloggers. The last day of the month of January pays tribute to the king of rock and roll – Elvis Presly!

Marinduque: Chasing the setting sun and crossing bridges at Gasan

Gasan Crossing but not meeting

Gasan Crossing but not meeting

Our jeep raced through the major highway of Marinduque coming from Sta Cruz. It was already late and we were hoping to get back at the resort by sun down. We sped through the Island capital of Boac and soon crossed the borders to Gasan. Our driver may have miscalculated the time or it took use quite some time taking pictures of each area as it was already past 5pm. The sun was going down fast and I knew we won’t make it in time.
