Give Me My Stripes! - PH

PhotoHunt theme : Stripes

My overseas friends had another fun day at Underwater World on Sentosa Island. It is a unique oceanarium showcasing some 2500 marine life from 250 species from around the regions.

Sea worms!? They have stripes all round their bodies!

Colourful fishes, some with stripes, swimming in one huge aquarium.


Placing one hand in the Touch Pool, I tried to lure a fish with stripes towards me but all the fishes were frightened by my bright pink nails! :D


Fortunately this snake does not have stripes or else I would attempt to place it around my neck and snap a picture! haha.....

arggghhh..... the photographer is wearing a striped shirt!

No! I'm not going to carry him on my shoulders for a picture!
*glare at friend who suggested it*


*Note : You can see a variety of crabs at Underwater World Singapore.
For dinner, we had Singapore's famous dish Chilli Crabs at a seaside restaurant.

  4. sgshort stories,
    I visit Singapore attractions quite often because I have many overseas visitors.

    Our Underwater World is a wee small but at least it's interesting and fun.

    Congrats, my FC! :)

  12. Ebie,
    Many people are scared of snakes.

    I guessed if this snake is being used for photographer, it should be safe. :)

  35. Some pretty exotic sea life you have around there ECL! The aquarium where I took my shot wasn't nearly as large or extensive as this one, but it had some neat exhibits too.

    Didn't know that fish would run from pink nails... that could be handy information to know!

  46. I've never seen sea worms before and they look like they're dancing. I also love the blues in the stripes of the fish.

    Thank you for visiting my photo hunt this week. Have a great weekend!

  48. Now Sea World was the perfect place to look for stripes! How clever of you. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  49. they allow people to put hands into the touch pool of fish? won tt like intro germs/change temp / whatever in the pool contents and poss kill the fishes within? I'm surprised. Well, afterall, some bigger conglomerate is gona trap a whale shark in a tank soon, that's another animal welfare issue thrown outa the window in the name of KACHING!
