So last month I was finally able to visit the penguin exhibit in Manila Ocean Park and I was BEYOND EXCITED. You all know how much I adore these creatures but I’ve never seen them live or have come in close contact with them. The moment I found out that MOP was having them over in the Philippines (which is a Tropical country so we don’t really have penguins), I made sure to visit them!
Went there straight after school from my dorm with my family and watched a Sea Lion show first. Could not contain my excitement to see the penguins so we rushed to the exhibit immediately after the show.
These are all Humboldt Penguins by the way. The Emperor penguin you see is just a statue! Deceiving really but my visit wouldn’t be complete without me having to feed them of course. BEST EXPERIENCE EVER. Had a real connection with this little penguin!
I was able to slide down the ice slide too and entered the snow village that was too cold for life but they came with jackets so it sort of helped. That concludes my penguin experience! :)
So my best friend came across this website called Defenders of Wildlife and they’re having this adoption program going on wherein you have a wide variety of options to choose from. You get to adopt a penguin but of course the real penguin won’t be shipped to you or anything because of the wildlife preservation. You will be given a personalized certificate along with a penguin plush and other things that are in the package that you choose.
This is only for US addresses and the shipping is free!
I for one am a big fan of penguins and will do anything to help save these animals. Sadly I do not live in the US but I told my relatives there about it :)
CLICK HERE to go to the website for more details! Thank you very much!
I’ve been putting off buying a leather jacket for quite some time now (maybe years haha) because of the bipolar weather here in the Philippines. I wanted one so bad but I just haven’t found the right one. I’ve seen a lot of them on celebrities and on the runway for the past few years and still it hasn’t gone out of style. It just depends on how you wear it after all ;)
Wide collared leather jackets
Simple leather jacket
Gray/Black customized leather jackets worn by Georgina Sparks from Gossip girl
Personally I’d go for any of these leather jackets! I love how they can add a sexy but tough and sophisticated touch to your look. Hope to get one asap!
You guys have to watch this awesome movie. It was totally better than what I expected it to be and not just some other penguin movie. It’s a really nice family comedy and Jim Carrey fits the part! I swear you have to watch it and I really love this movie. Here is one of the behind the scenes look where they introduce the 6 gentoo penguins :)
A package from my best friend’s grandmother came for me today and I was expecting this around last April but it’s totally fine because hey, better late then never. My best friend recently migrated to Virginia in America but we’re still as close as ever and of course BFFs.
Thank you Zarah for the lovely twix bag! This will keep me company for the rest of summer ;)
I love how the perfume smells after you put it on and give it some time to adjust, haha! I LOVE YOU! <3
