    My daughter has a Mexican mother and friends from India and Belize. It would be a perfect weekend experience for them to be part of this Southeast Asia Day at the Aquarium! 🙂

    Her dad, me, is from the Philippines, so the asian culture is an integral part of her life and proudly shares it with her mom and international friends.

    Wow, Southeast Asia Day with its festivities coupled with the Aquarium’s timeless mission statement basically provides a priceless experience to cherish.
