Wearing black in this sweltering summer heat while exposed to the afternoon sun is simply silly. I could be like that at times, wearing something not fit for the occasion. Oh well. The show wasn't to start until 430pm but we wanted to have good seats for Jake's sake, that we decided to line up early. The sea breeze from Manila Bay gave a cooling effect, fortunately for me, and it helped that the Manila Ocean Park organizers put canopy on some parts of the bleachers as well. We made sure to be under the shade.
It wasn't the first for the big people in our group, but it was Jake's first or second time to see a sea lion show, and without having to go to Hong Kong, Singapore or a farther place at that. Such a precious moment every time he gets all excited and "hyper" seeing the sea lions do their tricks. And it was so, for the 30-40 minutes that followed. Shows like this are made for the kids indeed, and this one at Manila Ocean Park definitely made the P150/pax fee all worth it.
*Tip: Make sure to put/bring sunblock and have cool drinks with you. To avoid too much heat, it's better to watch the late afternoon show than the morning counterparts.
