We took our daughter to the Manila Ocean Park last Tuesday (April 12, 2011). I had a lot of worries. Good thing the day turned out great. The weather was just right. We didn’t have a problem finding a taxi. Our daughter didn’t vomit despite of the long trip. She slept on the way home. I would have to say that none of my worries actually happened. I will look back to this experience every time I start to worry about something.
We left the house a little after 9am. My brother took us to the bus terminal. When we arrived at Sen. Gil Puyat Ave., our daughter had just fallen asleep. We took a taxi from there and arrived at Manila Ocean Park before 11am. Our daughter woke up then. Tickets to the Oceanarium, Sea Lion Show and Jellies costs a total of Php700 per person but were selling for a discounted price of Php500. We had lunch at North Park first before heading to the Oceanarium. After that, we went to the Jellies then to the Sea Lion Show.
