Three years after it opened, I was finally able to visit Manila Ocean Park. It’s taken me this long because the truth is, I’m not a big fan of aquariums. But this one right in the heart of downtown Manila was absolutely fun! It’s not very big, but I liked its compactness. I think it also helped that I went with a very different perspective than I normally have when I go to aquariums. You see, I have to deal with packaging design a lot at work and I was actually looking for creative inspiration. Coming from that point of view, I was stark raving mad with my brains totally blown away at each window. I was absolutely amazed at the packaging God made for each and every fish that I saw. And to think I’m only looking at a tiny tiny tiny gallery of this specie. The color combinations! The forms/shapes! The elements! The balance! The cohesiveness! The varied looks/moods! I was super in awe.
And here’s the cutest little fish ever playing with his new friend!
