Bela's 5th Bday Celebration @ Manila Ocean Park

Last November 16 was Bela’s 5th birthday. Hubby and I filed for a leave at work to be with Bela on her special day. It was a very long and special day for Bela:

• We started with a half day tour at Manila Ocean Park
• Then we partied with the kids at Hospicio de San Jose
• And lastly we had dinner with our family at Don Henrico’s

So let me start with our half day tour at Manila Ocean Park. I asked Bela if she wants to go to the Nido Science Centrum at SM Mall of Asia or at the Manila Ocean Park and Bela chose the latter.

We left early as we initially planned to catch the 9 AM Sea Lion Show but we arrived there past 9 AM already so we just decided to watch the afternoon show instead. We got their Marin Life Package which includes entrance to the Marine Habitat, Oceanarium, Jelly Fish Museum and Sea Lion Show all for only P500.

We started with the Marine Habitat and Bela enjoyed it right away. They have an underground section where you can see the sea lions swim and play under water and Bela did not get tired following the sea lion as they swim and play.

Our next stop is the Oceanarium. As always, it was a sure hit to Bela as she just loves animals.

Then we went to watch the Sea Lion show. The show was actually simpler than what we saw in Ocean Adventure in Subic but I am sure Bela still enjoyed the show.

It was 12 nn already when the show finished and so we decided to have lunch at Pancake House. After lunch we head straight to the Jellyfish Museum. This museum was nice and it looks like Jellyfish Museum in Ocean Park in Hong Kong.

Bela even wanted to try the pool but we have to leave already for her party at Hospicio de San Jose. But I am sure even it was a short trip, Bela had so much fun.
