A Day With Queen of My Heart in Green Connection

Mother's Day celebration is this weekend. So how is your preparation to celebrate for the one who sacrifice everything just to provide the best and love for you?

Every year, my siblings and I will bring mommy for dinner and we also will buy a gift for her. Instead of doing the same celebration every year, I decided to bring my mom to Green Connection on last Monday, which was the replacement holiday for Labour Day. When she knew that I am going to bring her there, she is so exciting (like a litte kid). Hahaha...

The Green Connection is an aquarium and eco theme park of Sabah. In a nutshell, Green Connection offers eco-treasures of Sabah which featuring over 500 species of animals.

"Say No to Shark Fins Awareness Campaign"


Do you know that actually shark fin does not bring any nutrition to human body but content mercury which may cause sterility in men if consumed in extremely large quantities. Shark fin may also harm pregnant woman too.


After the show, mommy and I continue to the other zone where you can touch and up close with the marine species.

Puffer fish or ikan buntal (in malay).

I called it "balloon fish". By the way, this fish is not edible and don't simply eat it if you go for fishing because it believed to be the second-most poisonous vertebrate in the world.


Green Connection is not just served as a center for you to get up-close and see the animals, there even got a "Science and Life Dome" where you can learn and play at the same time.
