Manila Ocean Park

I’m so excited to be able to share this news with you! As a biologist, I’m thrilled that the Philippines finally has its own oceanarium.

The state-of-the-art Manila Ocean Park had its soft opening last week, on February 29. It’s gorgeous and truly world-class! Let’s take a tour, via Mel & Joey:

The oceanarium is just the first phase of construction which will eventually include a hotel and mall, and open marine habitats. Already, it has the following sections open to visitors:

1. Agos (Flow) - a rainforest motiff complete with 8 tanks of freshwater fishes.

2. Bahura (The Reef) - exihibition of artificial corals in 48 tanks

3. Laot (Fishing Ground) - features big fish and Eagle-spotted rays in a long tank.

4. Kalaliman (The Deep) - showcases marine animals found in the deepest parts of Philippine waters.

5. Buhay na Karagatan (Living Ocean) - the main attraction of the oceanarium is a 25-meter long walkway tunnel with 220-degree curved acrylic walls similarly seen in Ocean Park Hong Kong, Singapore’s Underwater World in Sentosa, Siam’s Ocean World in Bangkok, Thailand and Kuala Lumpur’s Aquaria in Malaysia. The difference between MOP’s is a 220-degree curved tunnel as compared to the standard 180-degree curved tunnels seen in other Asian countries.

6. Overhang Tank - variety of rays fly over while you’re under this unique Overhang Tank.

7. Pating (Shark) - features several species of shark.

Let’s finish the tour with this second segment from Mel & Joey:


Isn’t it great!!? This is a definite must-see in Manila! The Manila Ocean Park is located behind the Quirino Grandstand at the Rizal Park (Luneta).
Check out this information page for entrance fees, operating hours and phone numbers to the Park.

Chapman House Inc.

I am used to go to places where environment is calm, serene and clean. You won’t see troubles in the streets, people shouting with each other, and the like. But there are also times when I have to go to the busy city, a big city actually. At first, I was astounded when I look around. You might also be surprised when you see traffic jams, air pollution and even noise pollution as vendors are almost everywhere. What surprised me much were the young and adults alike who have been roaming the street, holding plastics on their hands. Of course, I got curious and wondered what’s with that empty plastic that made them sitting comfortably even if it’s at the side of road.


Later on, I found out that they were actually inhaling the scent of rugby. Until, they get addicted to it. Two years ago when I stayed in the big city once again, I have seen the same situation that these young and adults are into. I told myself that maybe they have been so much addicted to it that they cannot find their way out of the situation. But they must not lose hope or even their families who are worrying about them do still have a chance to save them from drug addiction. The right solution for that is drug rehabilitation. Yes, sending these drug victims to a drug rehab is the best solution.

If one of your family members or friends are addicted to drugs, you may help them get out of that mess by seeking drug treatment. It’s not yet too late. Chapmanhouseinc.com can help you with that. Counseling would be the first step and eventually, drug treatment will follow until these drug victims are fully rehabilitated. Sure, you care for them. So why wait for the worse thing that could happen when you can save them the soonest possible time.

Protect Your Sight


It’s past midnight and if I am going to count on the hours I have stayed here since early in the morning, it’s more than 10 hours already. And knowing that I am staring at the PC monitor that long made me feel worried about my eyes. I guess, I have to protect my eyes now with eyeglasses. While I was busy with the thought, I stumbled upon the Best Thing found: Zenni Optical $8 Glasses. I must agree on this statement since I also find it as a Great Discovery:Zenni Optical $8 Glasses. Soon I will be wearing the Zenni Optical $ 8 Rx Eyeglasses so my eyes are always well-protected.

Senior Alarm System


Emergency cases were inevitable and are coupled with pressure. You’d always want to be on the go should emergency arises. While you wouldn’t want anything serious to happen, it is still best to be prepared about it. And how are you going to do this when as I have said, they are inevitable?

Perhaps, grabbing a senior alarm system is the wise thing you can do so far. Aside from the possible emergency accidents that can happen, your health or someone else in your house had medical emergency needs, you can also grab the chance of getting with you a medical alert and that is possible when you have with you on your wrist or someone who terribly needs health attention a medical alert bracelet.

Sometimes, we cannot think straight during emergency. So we tend to forget what we are supposed to react on that incident. If we have with us an alert system like what directalert.ca has to offer, we won’t let even a second pass by to ask for help. Availing their best offer guarantees us that we will have the best response we need in no time. You better try on this one, these gadgets are reliable enough at times we desperately need them.
