Every morning, we wait for the bus that drops us off to the parks from our apartment on this spot, just right in front of SBA. As expected, we got in trouble because of our halakhakan. This very morning, we got yelled at to shut up...ooopppss.
Anyway, this was the day the high rollers came home from their first casino episode, and they were telling everyone about my hubby hugging the machine trying to find out where the rooster's crow is coming from, and so we were all laughing like crazy.
Anyway, here are some photos to show you how interesting this park is. There were shows almost every hour to showcase dolphins, seals, etc... We did not wait for the 2:00PM big show however because we've seen it all before during our first holiday to the Gold Coast. It's where trainors get thrown around by the dolphins and all that... So, unfortunately, I am unable to show you what the show was like. But trust me, it's awesome!
After a while, I did split up from the group and headed down towards the Sea World resort all on my own. Along the way, I went past the shark's tank and the 'Happy Feet's' cage. I wanted to dive with the sharks, of course, under the supervision of professionals, but I did not bring with me any spare clothes. I can't go on the whole day soaked because it was really cold (It's winter!). But I would have loved to swim with sharks! Wouldn't that be thought provoking?
The Polar bear under water viewing hall was colossal, it would have been more exciting taking pictures of them submerged but the polar bears just would not go under water. They were playing and biting each other above grounds. The thought that we may soon be loosing these sensational creatures stirs sadness in my heart. Global warming, oil spills and hunting significantly reduced their population and the fact is, Polar Bears do not easily reproduce. There are only 22,000 to 27,000 Polar Bears left worldwide, including those in captivity. So if and when you can, do help reduce green house gasses emission by simply switching off any electronic devices in your home that are not in use. We have seen through modern history how the Tasmanian Tigers dissipated, Polar Bears are also heading towards extinction. We don't want that. We don't want our grand children asking us what Polar Bears look like...We want them to see at least once, a real Polar Bear in their lifetime.
A lot of work and programs are in place worldwide to ensure the survival of these majestic creatures. That's how dangerous their number has gone down to. They have become a protected specie.
These Polar Bears have it good inside this colossal glass cage. They get fed and looked after with proper vet care. But the ones in the wild are lucky to even reach adulthood. Please click the photo below to enlarge some written facts about Polar Bears.
Talking about protected specie...I had to protect my own. What's the Cheryl specie without Nachos? What is my survival rating without my favorite food? Hey you guys, I know you'll ask "where and when was this?". Well, I ate these all on my own. Did not share this with you that's why you won't remember anything about these yummylicious nachos....They have it nice and yummy in Sea World. Just look at these!!! I feel like going back to the Gold Coast now... (Where are we going next guys? New Zealand? NAKS! Take note, for a long weekend lang yan ha? OO nga pala may meeting tayo mamaya sa mansion ni Madam President para sa marketing strategies natin sa August. Uhhuurmm!)
Before 2:00 the Casino babes, Jashkah and I left the park and instead went......
