I admit that I am holding back on my posts because I haven’t blogged of Day 6 and onward yet, but believe me when I say that it will be done soon. For all we know, I may post it later! :)))
For now, I’m going to show you pictures that were taken earlier today that made me very GV! :”>
Just made me so happy! There are no words.. Libreng happiness! :’) ♥
I wasn’t planning on posting anything since I have to blog 5 more posts but this just happened today, lol. I’ll do my best to post two days this weekend, I promise! <3
I’m the one in the middle. Best in Conduct awardees. HAHAHAHA. All of us were very surprised. We don’t know how we got it or on what it was even based but it just happened. =)))) I was also one of the Best in Conduct last quarter and I don’t know what I’m doing right. XD
I’m the girl in the far-most right, beside the guy holding up a towel instead of a certificate. =)))) Subject Excellence Awardees. I am also unaware of how I got this Best in English award. Nevertheless, I am very thankful and appreciative of this. <3
I’m the 6th in class. I haven’t posted a picture of my report card yet. Next quarter, perhaps? :))))
Break muna sa Japan posts. Naka 5/10 days naman na ako eh so medyo just in time ‘tong post. Parang intercession lang sa isang play. HAHAHA! :)
Opening ng English Month kanina tas may performance kaming GZ + few people from other section. Nag-dress up kaming GZ girls, ang cute hahaha. :))) Sumayaw kami ng Summer Nights ng Grease tsaka The Way. Matagal naming pinagpractice-an yun ah haha. :))) Marami tuloy kaming na-miss na classes tsaka lessons, pero push. Kakayanin! :D
Ang taba po ng legs nung nasa pinaka-right, ano po? Nakakainis =)))))) Hahaha ang lufet lang po talaga nung dalawang kaibigan ko. Yung nasa pinaka-left tas yung girl na naka-pink na blazer. Last school year, silang dalawa yung Romeo and Juliet na nag-monologue, tas this year Sandy and Danny naman sila. Nakakahiya na po tumabi sa kanila. XD
Sa mga picture ko, itong picture lang na ‘to yung focused at matino yung setting and everything. Thankful na ako sa isang picture na ‘to. ‘Wag niyo na pansinin yung katabi ko, nakakakuha na po siya ng sapat na atensyon. Joke. =)))))) Sana pala yung mga picture ko hanggang medyo waist lang para di kita legs, kaso di ko masho-show off yung boots hahaha :P
…. no comment. | hashtag vain; hashtag nakakahiyayungnasagitna
Overall, sobrang saya nung experience. Ang ganda ganda po ng araw na ‘to. Panira lang yung isang subject hahahaha isa siya dun sa dalawang subject na sinusumpa ko. Panira ng araw. =))))) Oh well. I need to get back to trying to give a …. about this particular subject. Ang mean hahahaha =))))) Ah basta. XD Hooray for a fun daaay! <3
I stumbled upon this movie when I was looking up stuff in which Cobie Smulders was in. I downloaded it and watched it after a while. I was satisfied with the movie, but the ending was just so ridiculous and there’s so many plot holes in the movie. Ugh. Click Read More for more of my feels. Spoilers ahead. :)
We left some of our stuff at my ninang's house. We only brought enough clothes for three days. We were to stay at the Tokyo Bay Maihama Hotel Club Resort for one night. It was morning and of course we're not allowed to check in yet, but Disney is prepared! They deal with this stuff all the time because they actually have this guest services thing where you can leave your stuff and when you go to the hotel for the night, your stuff's already there! Amazing, right? :)
We had a 3-day Magic Passport, which meant we can go to Disneyland for one day, DisneySea on the other, and both on the third day! <3 Disneysea has more picture spots than Disneyland. Every place is just so beautiful! The American Waterfront, Port Discovery, and many more areas! You’d want to take pictures everywhere! @_@
We were able to go on many amazing attractions! We made sure to get a fastpass of a ride somewhere, and even though we were kinda early, the time of our Journey to the Centre of the Earth fastpass was at around 7:30 pm. After that, we went on different rides such as 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Indiana Jones. :)
At around lunchtime, we were at the Mysterious Island, so we decided to eat at a restaurant just within the area, which was the Vulcania Restaurant. My sister ate somewhere else. Before we ended up there, we passed by a stall that sold ice cream. I badly wanted to get one but I haven’t eaten lunch yet so I waited.After we were finished eating, we just waited for my sister to come back. I took that opportunity to buy that ice cream I wanted. I went to that stall alone and bought that Tiramisu Ice Cream Sandwich I wanted! It was so yummy! :3 (so yummy that others also bought it because they wanted to try it out)
( ^ that’s just one of the various places in which you can take pictures!) After that, we went to more attractions. Eventually, time passed and before we knew it, it’s already time to go back. We got on the bus that goes directly to our hotel and we ran into Beauty and the Beast! Hahaha they were so adorable! :3 We were like paparazzis, secretly taking pictures of them. XD Overall, it was a very amazing day! :”> Tokyo Disneysea is beyond awesome! <3 <3 :’)
On the fourth day of our trip, we were to go Tokyo (to my ninang's home). We got tickets for the Shinkansen bullet train. It's the kind of train you ride for especially long journeys within Japan.
Before the actual departure time, we were able to eat, rest, and sit for just a while. I ate a sandwich set. HAHAHA! While on the train, I ate more and then did some Sudoku. My sister and I watched an episode of New Girl. I wanted to sleep but I also didn’t want to, so I ended up not sleeping. XD If I remember correctly, the ride was for two and a half hours. :)
We reached Tokyo rather early. My godmother was supposed to fetch us at a certain time but we were hours early. It was so cold outside so I didn’t want to go out of the station. At some point, we went to a place where there’s free wifi and you can just sit and rest. Unfortunately, we only stayed there for one hour because it’s their closing time.
Long story short, we managed to pass time. (I read a book and some of us roamed around the mall that was nearby.) We rode a bus and then walked for a long time (or what seemingly felt like a long time). We reached their home finally! Yeaaaay! It was nice to see my little cousin again! Last time we were there, he was 2 years old. Now he’s six, and still very cute and adorable. :3
We had a very delicious dinner. Hooray for homecooked food! <3 There were lots of food and viands but I loved the salmon. I love salmon and it was just too glorious to find out that we’re having salmon for dinner. DIVINE! :’)
The night before, we arrived at Hotel Kintetsu. It’s a Universal Studios Hotel which means that it’s really very near to the theme park itself. There’s a convenience store that’s just around there as well so we bought our breakfast before we turned in for the night. It wasn’t enough (for me, at least. I really eat a lot) so after a few attractions we decided to eat brunch at a Chinese restaurant inside.
Well, I can’t really blog about every attraction we went to since I don’t remember the order, but I can say my opinions and observations. I’ve been to Universal Studios Singapore three times. I think that it’s better, for some reasons.
- There’s a lot of free space. Everywhere you walk, there’s something to see. Something to take a picture of. May it be a quiet place where you can just sit and think or a beautiful “road not taken” to other parts of the theme park, it’s perfect. There’s really no space wasted, unlike on the Universal Studios Osaka. I swear I can still remember walking around the theme park with a very large amount of space in the road I am walking on.
- You’re not in a different world. You can clearly see the “outside world”, and the gates that are used to keep people out are in plain view. They’re not even that tall. Ugh.
- It’s still amazing though! It’s awesome! <3
We were going around random shops and we stumbled upon this cute shop! It’s a Hello Kitty shop and I just absolutely love their clothes! (check the following picture) I love the four clothes in the middle, and the violet-black-pink dress in the left. Maybe it doesn’t look that pretty to you but when worn, it’s really very beautiful. @_@ <3
There was this one attraction, the Monster Rock at Pantages Hollywood Theater. I was so excited to see it! Since I saw that attraction at Singapore two times (and absolutely loved it!), I wanted to compare again. HAHA! :)
I was so disappointed. Dismayed. Crestfallen. It was still a lively show, and the songs were also English, but it wasn’t the same kind of lively. The monsters were so easy to like and appreciate. For a short period of time, you already know their personality, because that’s how good they are. It’s so difficult to explain but I swear it was such a let down. Sorry guys! I can let thev free space and obvious boundaries pass, but the Monster Rock Show is just disappointing. :(
Throughout the day, we went to many different attractions, and of course I can’t enumerate them all, but I know that I had a good time. Starting from the awesome hotel to the amazing theme park itself, everything was exciting! :)
Please notice my beloved sweatshirt! It’s soooo pretty. A lady even complimented me on it and told me it was cute (and it really was!). Yeay for my Panda sweatshirt! ♥ :3
I was just a bit of sad about the emergence of E-Books. This may sound cliche but I am truly sad. You know, I just can’t imagine teens and kids reading with a thick-lens spectacles, scrolling and hovering over each and every page without smelling the aroma of a true and authenticated book.
I just can’t afford everything that I wanna read. I’m sorry :( I feel bad myself, too.
This! ^ I was also like this once, kinda anti-ebooks because real books are amazing, but books are now really pricey. I also feel bad for myself but I as well can’t afford everything I wanna read. :(
Sorry for being inactive. I will try to post the remaining days of our trip later. I am currently thinking deep thoughts. I must re-evaluate how I make life decisions! Chos. XD
if you are at a bookstore buying a book and they have the original cover and the movie cover and you buy the movie cover I’m never going to stop judging you
