- We understand that the whole place is unfinished but the under-construction spots that can be found almost everywhere aren't properly covered. It's like a beautiful smile with missing teeth. If you're going to open prematurely, you have to make sure the place is still aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. There are planks at every corner and cords hanging from the ceiling. Masakit sa mata!
Magcocomment pa ba ako sa wall na ito?
- Like the entire Metro Manila, Manila Ocean Park isn't well-planned. The attractions should be easily located even without a map because they don't give you one. One must pass through the mall that sells tacky items (not anywhere near the park's theme) and fake Vuitton bags to get to the next attraction. The escalator going to the second floor is blocked for easy access because you need to go around the stalls which is painful when you just want to get to where you want.
This is a Philippine tourist attraction. Why sell fake designer handbags? The mall should at least have something (the souvenir shop is crappy as hell) na pwedeng dayuhin like good food. The Hotel H2O is within the establishment and it doesn't seem up to par with the park. Ako na Pinoy nahiya para sa mga foreigners. Ito na ba yung kaya natin?
The arena exposes you to the oftentimes unfriendly Manila weather (heat, sun burn, humidity, rain)
The Marine Life Show's audio is terrible. The music is louder than the voice-over. And they should get someone who speaks more clearly, enthusiastically, and one who knows how to use adverbs.
Food here is overpriced dahil hinde masarap. The 3-4 servings that the menu says is actually just for one. So ano itsura ng personal serving?
Bakit may insects sa tuktok ng jeep that has information about Philippine cuisine?
Cd-r King at an ocean-themed place? Sa bagay baka maisip mo na kailangan mo pala ng cd's. Shrug, shrug.
Maganda ang styling 'di ba?
- Absence of signage. Especially important things like no-flash photography. Ako pa mismo ang nagsasabi sa mga tao na bawal ang flash! Absence of employees that should control the crowd like chaotic children who tap the glass of the fish tank and their walang pakialam parents who spit on the ground and throw cigarette butts sa Manila Bay mismo. Walang point na nagandahan ka lang sa mga nakita mo pero magkakalat ka rin at papatay ng kagandahan. Hinde tamang na-appreciate mo lang. Kinulong sila para may ma-realize ka. At mukhang wala rin namang pakialam ang Manila Ocean Park. Where's the education? Wala. Minsan, hopeless talaga ang Filipinos.
People throwing coins into this poor crocodile's waters. Again, wala bang magbabawal?
At the Asian food exhibit, we found three girls playing with the sauces. Again, walang bantay.
This is a balot?
This is a bat.
The Musical Fountain Show. How do I start with you? If I had a kid, I'd be insulted if he actually enjoyed this. Walang story. Poor narration. Wala man lang lesson. Sayang ang technology. Everything is done in unacceptable, rotten taste. My eyes and ears would fall off every time the jejemon starfish come out.
