    Oh my sis! We have long delayed going to to Manila OceanPark! We just don’t have the time! Ask ko narin sis, is the ventilation better now? Kasi from what I remember the first time it opened a lot are complaining that it’s so hot inside. Did you get to have one of those fish spa? I love to explore the place and I’m sure our little guy would enjoy every minute of it!

    God bless you sis and have a great weekend! 😉
