It was a tiring day for me because of 08:30am class :'( but it was still fun! ^^ Reached home quite late and to slept much later but I managed to crawl out of bed early this morning to have breakfast with family. :) Unknowingly knocked out for 3 hours in the afternoon though. lol.
You're gonna drool with the pictures I took later-on!
Emily treated us to a really nice lunch.
Sad that I didn't get to eat crab. :( SCREWYOUUPSETTUMMY.
&We have Larry, Xiuqing's partner.
Caramel or something.
I think this restaurant cooks really special crabs! But I heard from my mum that it costs a lot.
Weird thing is, it's located behind "Underwater World" ............ Go eat some fish after watching them swim? lol.
YINGLING SO PRETTY HERE!!!!
$20 for students with student cards!
When you first enter, you don't see the aquarium but this..... exhibition(?) o things.
Kindda paid only 50% of my attention yesterday because I'm going again next month. (CAN'T WAIT!)
I haven't figured the link with these items to the aquarium. Maybe I'll go check it out next time!
Guan looking happy!
What are they doing, you may ask.....
Well, it's some stamp on thi passport hey provide at the entrance for visitors to stamp at each station.
I didn't get it since I know I'll throw it eventually.
SAVE THE EARTH DON'T WASTE PAPER!
They obviously had fun though!
&That's more important than saving the earth Whuuuuuuuuuut. xD
Emily's so lightweight that she has to jump so that they stamp would imprint nicely on her passport. lol.
Th passpor I was mentioning!
&that's Xiuqing holding on to th passport.
We didn't manage to take many pictures.
In fact there's less than 5 with all of us. lol.
The Chinese Junk.
&WE'RE FINALLY IN!!!!
Anyway, it is probably not ideal to visit the aquarium over the weekends. The crowd of tourists AND locals can be a little tiny wee bit overwhelming. With a bit squeezing and a little time spent on waiting for some people to finish their time watching the fishes so you could go closer to the tanks. But of course, not many can afford to visit during the weekdays thus flooding the weekend crowd.
We took about 2 hours (or maybe more than 2) for the entire aquarium.
I think it is safe to compare it to Underwater World. Although it's been yeaaaaaaaaaars since my last visit, there are a few instances where I thought I'd seen similar in Underwater World. To me, it is a replica of Underwater World actually. But bigger. Nicer. Prettier. Bluer. Bigger. Oh, mentioned that already. xD But yeah, it sure is much bigger than Underwater World. But the exhibits are pretty much the same. Still, it would be worth the ticket price.
I really like how there's like.... Shipwrecks included into some!
I took quite a number of pictures but I'm not sharing all.
If you want to see how it's like, GO VISIT THE S.E.A. AQUARIUM! :D
A picture to show you the possible weekend crowd!
Heads everywhere you try to snap!
&Yeah, that's Xiuqing and her bf.
The belt wasn't moving though. :(
Few of us literally feel like dying after the entire day. SORE.FEET.
Loveeeeee the colors.
Wonder why she's taking pictures sitting down?
There's actually small sharks underneath.
Apparently, I did a "greaaaaaat job" snapping pictures of her and the ground. lol.
More heads covering your view.
It is especially frustrating if you're just 1.51m like me. lol
Picture no justice to it leh!
I think it's much much prettier in real life!
Highlight here is the cute girl, not the fishes. lol.
SOME FISHES SWIM SO FAST WALAO.
Anyway, it is more ideal to bring a DSLR for pictures.
My pictures all turn blue-ish because I didn't adjust the lighting. lol.
But yeah, it's pretty muc that blue-ish.
NEW FOUND LOVE FOR SEA JELLIES!!!!!!
THEY ARE SO CUTE LEH. IDK WHY I LIKE.
This picture makes it look a bit creepy like it's an insect or something.
This fish must have lied a lot, lolol.
SO MANY SEAJELLIES!!!
*plop plop plop*
Another kind of Sea Jelly.
Lazy species. lol. Practically lay there all day just breathing.
Another type with longer legs!
All blur pictures because I didn't adjust my shutter speed.
Not important though, you must go to see how cute they actually are!
Like fairies flying around!
Obviously not la, I just thought it looks like a Sea Jelly Goddess. lol.
&Some coin thing you can also find in Disneyland! lol.
THE BIG BIG BIG TANK!
Is it called a tank????
Spot the flying.... I have no idea what is that. But it's flying underwater! :O
THIS IS DAMN COOL.
Like father bringing all his children for an excursion.
In this case, to people-watching. lol.
Actually, I think it's just him showing off he has so many followers. lol.
LIKE BIRDS LEH. SO CUTE.
&We were done!
Some desserts after the long visit!
Eh, sorry, uploaded too many of this pretty face, I didn't know. lol.
Guess which crap is this crap hiding behind the crap. lol.
THIS DAMN GOOD MAN.
Ying Ling's Chicken katsu.
So juicy and flavourful!
Guan and I cheekily ate a few extra pieces when Ying Ling's back was facing us. lol.
She told us we can't eat. BUT IT SEDUCES US! Lol.
After dinner, SURPRISE!!!!
