Slowly but surely, I sneaked into my son’s favor by the treats and trips that I’ve laid down for him the last year. He and Mama spent some of their time in our Kyusi apartment and we were able to explore some parts of Sikatuna Village, QCMMC, nearby Malls such as Trinoma and Araneta Center, Antipolo City, and Manila Ocean Park. The little one could not stop talking about the places he visited and one of his most talked about is his Manila Ocean Park Adventure.
We woke up early on a Sunday, celebrated Sunday mass in my favorite community church – Sacred Heart Church in Sikatuna Village. After having brekkie, we took a cab that will bring us straight to Manila Ocean Park. Though I’ve constantly checked online for deals on MOP packages, I was still confident that the park have promos of their own. And they definitely did. We got the Marine Life Encounter package that is composed of Jellies Show, a visit to the sea lion habitat, sea lion show, and the oceanaruim.
We decided to watch the sea lion show first scheduled at two in the afternoon. Soon as we settled, the rain started to pour, yet the show pushed through to entertain a full-packed audience. Teloy was quiet all throughout the show, though he requested for food sometimes the pop corn stand ran out of pop corn so we just waited for the show to finish before be took a bite at some of the stalls inside.
Afterwards we proceeded to the Jellies show which really amazed Teloy and made him curious of the creatures displayed. We headed to the sea lion habitat next to observe the sea lions we’ve watched earlier. The tot requested for an ice cone while we waited for Ninang Jane to arrive, and when she did, we ate again! We also explore a bit and Teloyskie took photos of things that interest him.
Ninang Jane no longer joined us on the oceanaruim tour and just contented herself exploring the rest of Manila Ocean Park. Meanwhile, there are no words to describe Teloyskie’s excitement and amazement at seeing all the marine creatures.
I knew that this is going to be one of his memorable trips during his childhood and I’m so thankful I was able to give him something that he will treasure as he grow up – a childhood that is full of adventure, fun and excitement!
