This is the cake we bought for Sir Gaffud’s birthday celebration! ^^ It looks delicious, doesn’t it? :3
Our president called him to lure him out of our classroom, but he came back inside when we started singing. We followed him inside the GZ classroom, and we had few pictures. :>
After that, it was just the normal, boring classes. Then in the afternoon, we (SC) were called for the repacking of goods (such as clothes, biscuits, noodles, canned goods, and heavy sacks of rice).
After that, I went back to the classroom to resume reading this book that I borrowed from Pam. I haven’t finished the book yet but so far it’s really, really good. :)
Since we weren’t able to have a picture together last Christmas party, I demanded she owed me a picture, and here it is yeayyyy!:
I am currently reading the last book of a particular trilogy that I’ve been wanting to read for a long time and I can’t help but feel annoyed at the girl character. It’s her last time to prove herself to the guy she loves that he IS the one she loves but she gives him reasons to doubt her by keeping in touch with her ex (who is still in love with her). Not a cool move.
In other news, I’ve been downloading TCD’s S02E09 since afternoon and up to now (10:54 PM) it’s still not finished downloading. I know that a watched egg never hatches, but I can’t help but observe that the ETA is below than 30mins one moment, then more than 3hrs the next. Like, it changes in less than a minute. Internet, please let me download this before messing up.
At the moment, I am currently wallowing in my dislike for the resume of classes. There are projects and assignments ahead of us. I wouldn’t be particularly excited for that. I am also fretting about USTET, DCAT, and ACET’s results that are coming out this month. ACET’s coming out next Saturday. Eeep! :o
Okay, that’s all! I just updated my blog. :D :D
Ugh. The Fallen movie is coming out this year (I just remembered) and just cringe at the thought. I checked the cast (last year, I checked and they weren’t official yet) and I cannot possibly get more annoyed than I already am. They’re wrong! They’re so wrong. I just checked Luce, Daniel, and Cam’s casting. I didn’t bother checking the others. *sigh* So heartbreaking. A book series that good… *sigh* (times infinity)
I have so many reasons why I don’t think that this is a great idea. I just shake my head. This is just the worst, ever. And now I also remember that Slammed is also going to be a movie. That’s a hundred times more heartbreaking than this. I hate this, all of this.
It’s like my worst nightmares are coming true. </3
The last day was all about getting home. We had packed everything the night before, put everything into our bags, made sure everything’s ready and all. Here’s a picture of my cute 6-year-old cousin on the morning that we were supposed to leave:
We rode a bus that goes directly to the airport. We kinda had a hard time because we had too many baggage. XD I mostly slept on the bus ride because I was really sleepy and tired and had nothing better to do. The rest felt really good. :).
After that we just waited at the airport for quite a while before checking in. I solved Sudoku puzzles to pass time.Then came the time for our flight. I slept a lot again. Sleep is nice. Sleep is good. Hahahaha <3 We got here to the Philippines and had a bit of a dilemma before actually reaching home. :) Just like that, our trip to Japan has ended. It’s not colder outside establishments anymore. Heaters were no longer needed. =)))))) Hello Philippines!
My cousin wanted to go to Legoland so badly and since it was literally beside Madame Tussauds, everything worked out well for all of us! We passed by a lot of picture spots on the way there, and there was even a parade (that we didn’t watch for too long because the blazing sun)!
We went to Madame Tussauds. I’ve always heard about it and wanted to go to that wax museum. It was really interesting! There were videos on how to make those wax statues, how long the process took, and more information about it. It was really fun seeing how they were made. Such intricate details! Amazing, amazing! XD
Me with Michael Jackson, Johnny Depp, E.T. (which happens to be my cover photo on Facebook), and Aubrey Hepburn. They’re just some of the stars in the museum. There were Obama, Steve Jobs, Madonna, and many more! I didn’t notice time pass by because we were too busy taking pictures. There were soooo many wax statues! Hahaha XD
Bow down to me, I am queen! =)))) Beside the Kate Middleton wax was that throne, and beside it was that fluffy thing (sorry, I don’t know what it’s called!) and crown that people can wear when taking pictures. Hahahaha it was really fun. XD We really took so long inside the museum, and we were so tired and hungry after it! So we ate lunch. Then after that we went to Odaiba and all the other places we went to four years ago, but we didn’t stay long. Long story short, we went to watch the fountain show and then ate dinner afterwards:
Yeay food! :) We did a lot of stuff that afternoon actually, I just can’t remember the places we went to and all. We went to this beautiful fountain somewhere. There were a lot of shops there as well, and I recall being very very tired of walking, but is still able to smile at pictures. XD Oh yes! We also bought tasty donuts. :)
This is a day well spent! I remember really wanting to go home, but it was probably because we visited a lot of places. :D When we went home, we went to pack our stuff in preparation for our flight back to the Philippines. :(
In the left pic, I was holding a cream puff. My sister and I wanted to try it out and some ended buying some for themselves as well. :)) In the right pic, I’m obviously inside the subway. We were headed to Ginza! :)
Ginza was a great place! There were so many shops. It was kinda tiring but very fun! We roamed around so many shops and seen so many clothes. We even bought lots of suitcases because they were on sale. XD We did a lot of walking, picture-taking, and roaming around. Too bad it rained. It was such a bother. Anyway, in the middle of our Ginza adventure, we also passed by the…
… Apple Store! We went there to get my iTouch fixed because my iTouch’s front cam was broken for months. They replaced it with a new one the next day, but few days after we went back to the Philippines, it kept freezing and freezing and nothing I tried worked. In short, it was broken again. So now we sent it back to my godmother. Few days ago I just received the news that they replaced it again. Thanks for replacing it Apple, but please don’t mess up my iTouch again ^_^
We went to that tower on the left picture after Ginza. On the way up, I saw the Studio Ghibli store that my sister and I read about in some guide. I immediately went inside and looked over all the stuff! <3 It’s fun that I recognized almost all of the merchandise inside. Ponyo, Chihiro and No Face, Totoro, Howl and Sophie, Princess Mononoke, and more! It was even more fun when I realized that the song they were playing inside the store was the Ponyo theme song. :’) Our time was short so I had to go but I really maximized the few minutes that I spent inside! <3 <3 <3
After that, we went to a little theme park of some sort. We rode that hot air balloon flower thingie that went up so high, then went down gradually. I actually took a video of our descent, but I can’t find it so yeah. =)))) After that, we went hoooooooooooome! :D
That morning, we went to Ikspiari but my sister and I eventually decided to just come to Disneyland instead of going around the shops. We made sure to make the best out of our time! We even took pictures with some of the characters like Goofy…
… and Robin Hood! (picture on the right) After that, we ate pancakes! <3 I really wanted to eat pancakes the day before but we weren’t able to, so I was really happy that my sister and I were able to eat pancakes that morning! They were very yummy pancakes. :3
After that, we went to the Country Bear Theater. and then lined up in Splash Mountain, one of my favorite rides. :3 After that we just did a lot of eating, taking pictures, and lining up. We also rode Big Thunder Mountain, which is just so <3 <3 <3 <3! It’s not really an extreme ride, and it’s the very first ride that I rode in the very first Disneyland I’ve been in. Just a short explanation:
Four years ago, this is the first ride that we lined up for. We were didn’t know which rides were good and which ones weren’t, then we saw that the line for Big Thunder Mountain was very long, so we decided to line up! :)
While we were just walking around, my sister and I kept seeing people holding something like a chicken leg so we looked for it to try it out and see if it’s yummy. It was Teriyaki Turkey Leg. It was very tasty, but after a while you’ll get tired of it partly because it’s so difficult to eat without getting stuff on your face. XD
Later that day, we rode Big Thunder Mountain for the second time. Then we just lined up on the attractions that we haven’t seen yet. When nightfall was upon us, we went to Toontown. Yes, the attractions are mostly for kids, but that didn’t stop us! We rode an amazing roller coaster. I thought it wouldn’t be thrilling because it’s for kids, but it’s actually really good! It’s like Big Thunder Mountain, but the ride is short and less extreme, but still extreme enough.
We saw that the time waiting is 5 minutes so we decided to ride it. Turns out, there’s nobody riding it and the space provided for the line was very long so that 5 minutes indicated there was the time you walk from the entrance to the actual part where you ride the coaster. XD It was so much fuuuuuuun! :3 I wanted to ride it again but I was tired and hungry already. XD
My sister and I bought something from the Pan Galactic Pizza Port before we revisited some of the attractions we visited the day before, including Star Tours. It was a good thing, because each “room” shows a different video! We didn’t know that so we were amazed all over again! The 3D was so amazing. <3 Then we ate dinner at a fancy restaurant and left. :((( It doesn’t sound like we did a lot but this day was the day the I had the most fun! We really did a lot and I felt that the day was really worth it and was really maximized! <3 :’)
For the sixth day, we went to Disneyland! (we went to Disneysea the day before, so we were really meant to go to Disneyland) :D
That’s the Mickey Tiramisu Sandwich. We bought two! Last time we were there, we bought Mickey-shaped Ice Cream. This one is definitely much better! It’s so delicious. :’)
The most common costumes that people were wearing are Alice, Belle (both blue and yellow wear), and Snow White. The costume I loved the most was the Queen of Hearts. It just looks so good! I swear when I get thinner I’ll come back and I’ll be Queen of Hearts on Halloween. <3
For this day, we visited a lot of attractions. A LOT. We watched so many shows, rode so many rides, and took very few pictures because we were enjoying ourselves. I don’t even know how I can summarize this day because so many things happened, (not just because it was so long ago) so I’ll just post a lot of pictures. :D
Really sorry for the huge delay! Things at school got really stressful! Please believe me. Those last three weeks of school for this year was the most stressful three weeks ever! :((( Hopefully I’ll be able to finish the remaining days today! <3
