Let's head to The Green Connection for a family outing.
|Welcome to The Green Connection!|
It is a 10-minute drive from KK city and is located within Badan Sukarelawan Complex, KM2, Jalan Tuaran, Likas Sabah. If you are driving from Kota Kinabalu, you would have passed through Razz Ma Tazz clubhouse, SLDB office and finally a temple on your left hand side prior to the intended left-turn to The Green Connection.
It is open daily from 10.00am - 6.00pm and last entry is at 4.30pm
My wife always say that I'm good with sketching direction map but I am not going to sketch one this time. Uncle Google will. Just a little bit of touches here and there and we are good to go:
|Finding it is very easy|
Show me the money:
Ticket price for adult : RM 25.00
Child : RM 15.00 children between 2 yrs and 16 yrs old. It's free passage for babies.
|Err...these vases don't grow flower one!|
About half of the fun is outdoors but no worries, the compound is amply vegetated and your tour would mostly be under the shade of the trees. If you are unlucky and it rains, you have to just stay indoors but there are still plenty of things you can do.
|Get a hand at the starfish if you'd like to. Just don't take them out of the water please..|
|Hensem kah saya?|
The main attraction is this centre is the big aquarium inhabited by many aquatic species. Some notable ones being the stingrays, sharks and turtles.
|Shoot them as you like & take all the time you need|
As part of the education program, the centre provide a short on-the-job briefing prior and during the show. Fish feeding time (I call it showtime) is at 11.30am & 4.00pm on Monday to Friday. On Public Holidays, Saturdays and Sundays there is additional show at 1.30pm.
|Should I listen to her? or watch the diver feeding the fishes?|
|"There.. Take it, you greedy pari!"|
Less activity outdoors for us as it was drizzling that day. There are snakes and other reptiles as well but that'd be for the next visit during drier days.
|"Mana sudah mama kita nih aah?"|
|"Ahoyyy pirate!" |
...fares you goodbye as you approach the exit.
Happy Holidays! and spend sometime with your loved ones this weekend.
