Part 1 — dahil di ko pa masyadong feel mag step-by-step / day-by-day narration so highlights muna. Presenting… ang mala-interview na mala-slumbook na entry as an intro to my trip :))
Describe your flight.
That’s a wonderful question! 🙂 ( Magpapanggap muna ako na hindi sakin galing yung tanong :)) ) Actually, during my trip from Manila to Narita, I found myself pausing whatever it was that I was watching every time one of the two male flight attendants who were assigned on our side of the plane passes by. I was really amused each time they spoke and I wanted to listen to them talk. :)) You see, they both looked really foreign–one of them was clearly Caucasian while the other one seemed Hispanic, but they were both really fluent in tagalog! And their accent was on point! I mean, if I weren’t looking at them, I would mistake them for pure-blooded pinoys! In fact, even when they spoke in English, they still have this Filipino accent. No, not the “The fox” to “Da paks” stereotype but more like the tone or the way Filipinos speak. It’s pretty difficult to explain but anyway, I found it really amusing and I enjoyed watching them as they spoke. :))
Write a short memorable scene from your trip.
Of course, there are so many memorable things about this trip. It’s my most jam-packed trip so far. But the first thing that comes to mind is my conversations with Etheon 🙂
He’s a very accomodating kid. I often find myself talking to him because he kept sharing his interest in games and he was also a very curious little boy. One time, He was choosing a character from one of his games when he mentioned one of my favorite characters–Nick Wilde from Zootopia. I then told him that I liked Nick… Here’s how our conversation went….
Me: Oh! You mean Nick from Zootopia? I like Nick
Me: Because he’s smart. (The first word on my mind was actually ‘sly’)
Etheon: He also knows everyone. Is that why you like him?
I was speechless. For a moment there, I asked myself this question… Really, why do I like Nick? haha Nice one, Etheon, you made me reflect with your question :))
Describe you trip.
The love I’ve been receiving from my family is overwhelming! I saw how excited they were for me for being there and they were helpful and present the whole time. They also joyfully gave me a tour and welcomed me to their home as much as they could.
What makes this different from your other trips so far?
I am all aloooooooone! :)) Well, during all of my plane flights, that is. And it seems like I won’t be able to bring the usual amount of pasalubong that I take back to the Philippines because my family from California (more are flying in to meet me before I leave, btw.) are sending back stuff with me to bring to my family in the Philippines! Again, more love.
How about the hotel?
Well, I miss the cheery bright orange wall paper of my room back during my second stay in Ithaca. The motif in my room right now is a nice Dark Blue and Gray. Although… the plus side is this hotel offers rice for breakfast!!! 😀 So… yeah, rice wins! :))
So anyway, those are my first batch of update, if you have questions that you want me to blog about, just Ask. I might answer them :)) But for now, my laptop’s battery is around 7%. haha time to sleep :)) Ciao!
