Aquaria

Yesterday we went to Aquaria. This is our second attempt to go. The first time, we encountered a queue which was estimated to be 1.5 hours before we got to the ticket counter. Needless to say, we took off.

Yesterday, hubby said to go again. This time it was better as there was practically no queue!!
The first thing that we saw was a tank of fishes which included this sting ray.
Ryan was facinated with it and told his father that it was a "Kite fish!" We were laughing.


We then went along some more tanks and there was one tank where a tortoise was put on the ledge ... presumably for kids to pat. Ryan was patting its back and then he said "Turtle (he does not know the difference yet) bak bak (means bathe) come out already lor" ... meaning that the tortoise came out from the tank after its bath! Look at the tortoise below ... amazing.


Then proceeded to a show case which has this animal in it. I'd forgotten the name of it but it was some rare species. Ryan took one look at it and said "Koala bear!" See if you can make it out from below.



Almost at the end, there is a tunnel which we pass to see the marine life. It was indeed a bedazzling sight. One of it was this where the baby sharks were nursing from the mother. I pointed out to Ryan saying "Baby shark milk milk". He looked at them and then pointed to my chest ... "Ryan milk milk"... I guessed his craving must have been aroused by the sight of the shark nursing.
All in all, it was a great experiance for Ryan. I was really tired when we got back. Ryan and I napped for a while before we got up for some more play and food. What an evenful Sunday!
