Field trip – Aquaria KLCC

Last year, Yan Yan’s kindy’s field trip was to the Farm in the City.  As Yiu Yiu has not been there as well, I decided to bring the girls there on our own instead of joining the kindy.  While we had loads of fun, instead of rushing through the exhibits as a kindy field trip would, Yan Yan felt a little left out when her friends discussed about their visit after the trip.  So this year, we decided to let her join the field trip to the Aquaria.  I took half-day leave to join her and to become a mamarazzi, since this blog needs some contents J

We gathered at the kindy at about 9.15am to board the chartered buses – four in total if I’m not mistaken.  We reached the Aquaria at around 10.30am.

Since there were easily 120-150 children there, you can imagine the havoc inside the Aquaria.  As expected, we had to rush through and squeezzeeeeed to view the exhibits.  I really pity all the tourists/visitors who happened to be there on that day J

We were then gathered at the Aquatheatre at about 11.15am, for the fish feeding show at 12noon.  Many children got really restless waiting 45-60 mins for the show to start, but the show was worth the wait.

We left shortly after the show ended with everyone having a packed lunch in the bus.

This trip reinforces my belief that trips like this are better off taken on our own.  This was my first time at the Aquaria and I am pretty impressed, especially with the Oceanarium and the fish feeding show at the Aquatheatre.  On certain days, there’s shark feeding too.  I think we will definitely make a more leisurely trip there on our own in future.
