May pic(k) of the month


I’m Ray





Dear Ray:

This month I took to snapping pictures of different kinds of animals. Be it a buzzing bee, a grazing cow or a fluffy mountain goat, I fumbled to get the right elements captured. Be it the shelled or slimy creatures of the underwater, I gracefully cussed as I kept failing with motion and blur.

By far, you’re my favorite, Ray. You may not be smiling like the mama goat in Daguldol. You may not be heartwrenching like the fish I couldn’t save as he was washed ashore. You’re weird and far from cuddly but you’re simple, cute and colorful the way I like it.

Like me. :D




A deeper experience


Manila Ocean Park

For someone who found the Underwater World in Sentosa just okay, please take my comments about the Manila Ocean Park with a big sack of salt. :D

I think it’s delightful for kids. I think it’s expensive (regular Oceanarium admission rate is Php400.00). I think it’s awesome to see and read about the diversity and variety of species thriving in Philippine waters. And I think an adult can finish a self-guided tour in one hour. :D

The Manila Ocean Park is a modern complex that houses an oceanarium, an open water marine habitat, a mall, a restaurant row and function facilities. Other attractions are the Oceanarium’s undersea tunnel, Aquanaut Voyage, glass-bottom boat ride, Mermaid Show, Jellies Dancing Fairies exhibit and fish spa; Aquatica’s pools, Musical Fountain and Water Ball.
