riding with Gymbo the clown
first stop, ocean adventure. basically there's nothing to see in ocean adventure except for shows. the dolphin, sea lion and some other show involving some snakes. there was a small aquarium, which tsug appreciated. since it was tsug's nap time already, the only show i saw were these 2 caucasians in penguin suits jumping up and down from a trampoline and the host cracking jokes like "anong fish ang marunong mag martial arts?", "tila-PYA!".
squinting under the harsh afternoon sun; got there around 1130ish
tsug had his afternoon nap so i wasn't able to see the dolphin show, but nanay and the rest of them were able to watch.

the hotel (Lighthouse Hotel) also was a bit of a disappointment. didn't know why it was highly recommended in TripAdvisor. it was extremely overpriced for such a small room (we booked Aqua Veranda). i was expecting a suite at least. the balcony was tiny, though the view was really fantastic.
still, the most i'll pay for this room is 6k, 7k would be pushing it. so not worth it. if there's a next time in subic, we'll check out the Segara Villas.

tsug at the bathtub. see the small room? this is it. and a very small balcony that just fits 2 people.
after we checked out the next day, we went to Zoobic, which made our entire Subic trip worth it. firstly, it was a guided tour, so you're not wandering at the zoo by yourself. plus there was a tram ride, and the tiger ride where a guide takes a raw chicken and feeds the tiger through the jeep's grilled windows. very exciting! you can actually touch the tiger if you were suicidal or something. tsug was sleeping at first, but i just had to wake him up when we reached the mini petting zoo. tsug very much liked touching the sheep and deer.. and even bottle fed the deer some milk.

still not tired of camels
more animals; tsug still sleeping at stokke, had to wake him up; inside the tiger jeep ride
definitely the highlight of our trip
Really enjoyed zoobic, can return there when tsug is much older!
