Day 5 - AQWA

The main attraction at Hillary Boat Harbour is the Aquarium of Western Australia or AQWA. Not only AQWA has a decent collection of sharks, stingrays and colorful fishes, it is also known for its research in marinelife. I've not been to Akuaria KL, so it's not fair to make any comparisons. But between AQWA and the Aquarium in Sydney, I prefer the latter.

The mighty, mighty shark

Neon spotted stingray

Check out these corals

They maybe small but they can be deadly, these jelly fish.

Getting close to the fish, feel free to dip your hands in...ohh yes, there were stringrays in the touch pool as well!!!

My friend the seal, taking an afternoon nap....

End of tour... (there are more pics of AQWA, will post the rest next time)

Komen Pak Malim kucing ray yg alim.

Gambar-gambar itu sangat cantik, kata Pak Malim dgn mata yg lentik. Tapi takut tengok gigi jaws tu, kata Pak Malim sambil menggaru kutu. Tajam, tajam, kata Pak Malim dgn mata yg pejam.

Pak Malim kucing ray yang alim,

Ikan-ikan bukan lah favourite saya, walaupun zodiac saya adalah ikan, jawab Kay sambil mencari paku tekan. Banyak sea creatures di AQWA, dan semuanya sangatlah lawa :)

Ummi, wasn't my fancy either. But kids being kids, they just love seeing them swimming around and they get easily facinated by the colours etc, etc. Kita mak-mak ni hai....layannnn je lah, nak buat macamana kan.
