Into Manila Ocean Park

So last saturday, Mushy, Angel and I went to Manila Ocean Park. The Place was huge (too bad I was in a hurry to go to the ticket counter and forgot to take pictures of the building) and is sub divided into different areas.

The ticket price was Php400.00 for adults and Php350.00 for children. Good news to Manileños as we have 10% ticket price discount, just present a valid Id with address.

Unfortunately though, I find the Oceanarium, the main area where all the fishes are, a bit small compared to other ocean parks outside of the country. But I will still give credit to the developers as a lot are still under construction and hoping that there will be more fishes and attractions soon.

One of their attractions  was the fish spa, where you supposedly let the fish suck up dried skin tissue. I don't know how true is the medical explanation about this is true, all I know is they it tickles when they suck.

Either they see my leg hair as worms or I have more dead skin than Mush and Angel. :))

Oh, also, I tried a fish spa before in Star City, so I was expecting guppy size fish, I was wrong! They may as well be the Yao Ming of fish spa fishes.

Update: According to my friend Albert Abadicio, these are not the real doctor fishes but are called chinchin or small tilapias that are starved so as to eat even my balahibos. (chinchins are also cheaper than the real dr. fishes.)
