The Taste of Life

“This story is something I created when I was a first  year college, year 2005. My teacher from English 3 instructed us to make a story based from the picture he revealed to us. At that moment,  the picture he did revealed was a photo of a cave and war like scenario, then this is how I created the story.”

It was May 14, 2014 when my friend Joan invited us to be reunited again after a long time, her friend since high school, to go in Palawan. It was her treat for us to relax from a heavy office duty, to have a sightseeing not to mentioned, vacation with the gang! It was the right time then since it was summer. All of us were free from work. The sea was a crystal clear as well as the sky that was very much bluer than blue when we arrived, and Joan was standing near the shore waiting for us.

After a few days of appreciating the beauty of the said place, we have decided to go to the cave. The last spot that we haven’t gone to.  There were three boats that were going inside and one of that boats were us. Before entering the cave, Aliyah was quite afraid going inside because it was dark. I, myself was also afraid from the kept hidden mystery from the cave. Still, the man said that there’s nothing to be afraid of since the cave is not perilous. As we go in, we’ve seen lot of things inside and one of this was a limestone which was created by a slight acidic substance that slowly dissolves the rock along cracks and it looks like a crystal as the light of our flashlight hits the wall of the cave and we are amazed how wonderful it was. As we row the boat, many bats were flying towards us, until we arrived at the zone of the cave which is called the twilight zone. Joan explained to us what twilight zone is. She said that this zone is sheltered from direct sunlight and normally has a moderate environment than above ground and host to a diverse population of animals. After an hour, we succeed coming out from the cave with a feeling of contentment and memories of our experiences inside the cave.

After enjoying the trip, we finally decided to go back to the resort hotel. It was getting dark when my friend wawa was reading a newspaper when suddenly she started to uproar. As I look at the newspaper, it was a picture of three cars that were burning into flame beside a building and it came from the country of Iraq. Bainarie told us that they were at the chaos that is happening in Iraq at this very moment, and it was true as seen on CNN News today. I’ve seen many people, military unit and other events that are involve in that pandemonium. From that moment, I feel bad and pity to those people who are involved in that turmoil. As I look up the sky, the stars are shining so brightly and the sea was calm. I suddenly think that, while we were having fun on this island, other people were suffering from commotion that caused by misunderstanding. Now, I realize that sometimes, life is becoming unfair.

“It was a story I created 11 years ago, and to tell you, this didn’t happen since our friend Joan died from an incurable illness last 2013. It was an unexpected sickness that caused her body to grow frailer each day. The treatment from her illness haven’t been resolved by science, only to reduce the pain. Due to her stress caused by her environment, her sickness grow quicker than expected. Not later than a year, I guess, after knowing her illness, she died. The sickness that caused her life to demise is called LUPUS.”

TOKYO TRAVEL EXPENDITURE

The first thing that comes out in our mind when we think about travelling is how much will it cost us? How much do we need to save for the trip that we dreamt of? Do I have enough cash for this travel? Travelling should not be an encumbrance, but a commitment to yourself to take a break and have fun once in a while. This will take more patients when it comes to preparation.

Japan 2017

From my 2015 Japan Travel, I didn’t got too much of a problem since I already have a fund to use. At first, I questioned if this will be in acted. I do believe in the words “expect the unexpected”, until my co-officemate booked a ticket 45 days before our trip. When she did that, I said to myself “This is it.” For this time around, 2017 Japan Travel, I really need to break a leg to save up. The remaining deposit on my bank account was at its lowest, and need to start from a scratch. Nevertheless, our willingness to take this trip with my college friends was then stronger and finally set our mind to do it. We made a planning then booked a promo flight from Cebu Pacific 7 months before its departure. We then waited for another local promo air fare and we just did.
In order to give you a further insight about my expenses, you can base from the information below.
INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT (VICE VERSA).                                       7,350
LOCAL AIR FARE (VICE VERSA)                                                         1,500
LOCAL TERMINAL FEE (LAGUINDINGAN AIRPORT)                     200
INTERNATIONAL FEE (MACTAN AIRPORT)                                      750
TRAVEL TAX INTERNATIONAL FEE                                                 1,620
HOTEL NAKA-MEGURO                                                                      2,500
SHIBAMATA HOTEL.                                                                            1,658
CEBU HOTEL FOR 1 NIGHT                                                                  700
TRANSPORTATION FARE FROM NARITA TO NAKAMEGURO  1,200                                              KESEI SKY LINER (SHIBAMATA TO NARITA)                                 926.50
VISA PROCESSING THROUGH DISCOVERY TOUR                         800
TOTAL                                                                                                   19,204.5

Based from the above computation, it did cost me 19,204.50. In addition to this, I did bring 30,000 with me for my expenses for food, transportation and other unexpected expenses. However, I didn’t used all those amount, and bring some of it when I came back from Japan.
How much you’re going to spend depends on the person who is travelling. When you plan, be sure to consider all the expenses needed, and the places.


TOKYO TRAVEL EXPENDITURE

MAMIS NO BOUKEN: DAY 4 (TOKYO DISNEY LAND)

Day 4: Tokyo Disney Land

Surely days fly so fast and its already at our 4th day. We were planning to be entertained at the said amusement park, and see how majestically it was. I am not an amusement type of a person, but as to fun related aspect, I am really into it.  I like going on a fast ride like roller coaster, bump car, and whatever that  takes my adrenaline keep on moving fast.

Then before going there, we did woke up at around 8 am. We got tired last night transferring our luggage from one train to another. We did got lost, and realize that Shibamata was too far from the city centre of Tokyo. Upon arriving there, we mistakenly pin point someone else’s home. This freaked us out and called for some help from the citizen, and called a police. The ending was that the house that should accommodate us that night was just the adjacent house we wrongly thought it was. We were very sorry for the trouble we did cause that day. Nevertheless,  this kind of situation is indeed part of the journey.

In the next morning,

IMAGE 1 
We already up to our next destination. The weather was a little bit okay, not so cold unlike the previews days. I almost didn’t use my scarf to protect myself from coldness.

It was a long way route going from Shibamata to Tokyo Disney Land. We almost spend our time like three hours. We even got the wrong ride. To tell you the truth, the amazing train ride was like a maze to us. Those who are interested in making a trip to this wonderful country, you need to take heed all the advices by the people who already have been there. One thing I could contribute is for you to do an extensive RESEARCH! If you won’t do so, your time staying there will be consumed in finding your next destination, and do a little bit of sight-seeing later. Nonetheless, this isn’t should be the pattern. It should BE less travel, more sightseeing.

We did arrived at Tokyo Disney Land at around 1:00 pm. To give you a glimpse, here are some photos we did captured.


Being with your friends on travel and experiencing such as shown in the picture is really overwhelming. You know what I mean on this part. That feeling of being you, and showing the fondness that is part of you without even caring about what other people says. As long as your with them, and sharing this moment is all that matter.

IMAGE 16

Yet, there is really a disadvantage in waking up late. (v.v) We didn’t got the chance to ride most all the amenities inside Tokyo Disney Land. We only did experience two out of many. We did noticed about a fast pass. This fast pass is an opportunity given to any Tokyo Disney Land visitors to schedule their time, and be prioritized when your schedule is up without queuing in a lengthy and time consuming line.  At first I indeed noticed this from a blog, but didn’t give too much attention due to excitement. It was a regret, in fact if only  I did took an importance to that blog we would be riding more rides, and make more memories out of our trip there. Nevertheless, we did made a good lasting memory that day.

Did I mentioned earlier about an “extensive research”? Be reminded even though your with your friends, relatives, co-office mates, etc during your trip; don’t give too much confident to relay on them! I don’t mean this on a negative aspect, but on the lighter side. You still needed to do the researching part. Why? Experience is really the best mentor. It happened to me. I got separated from my friends. While we were searching for our next ride, it was coincidentally that it was also a pick hour. Every worker were leaving from their offices at that time of the day. We were then also busy looking at our cell phones for a route. However, I was then not minding too much about it, and just do the observing thing. My friend mentioned about going to Higashi-Matsudo twice as our next stop, and I did took that in mind. A minute later, the train arrived and everyone was in waiting line for the door to open.  Second later, everyone is going inside. I was confident that my friends was also taking their steps toward the train door. I felt that the train was starting to move. I did look at my right side if my friends where there, but they were not.  My mind got rattled at that moment seeing them outside the window of the train. The feeling was like a slow motion scene in a movie upon seeing them. They were saying something, giving me signal that I couldn’t understand. My mind suddenly blank out at that instant, and the only thing that came out from my lips was the word “Higashi-Matsudo”. My mind was confused, distressed, feels like I wanted to cry however I need to shake things off, and decide! I took the courage to ask the people around, luckily, the guy in front of me told me that the train I was riding was a wrong train going to Higashi Matsudo. Like OMG! What do I do! What do I do! These words keeps on popping inside my mind. The guy instructed me to wait for a train on our next stop for Higashi-Matsudo. I was like a lone wolf separated from the pack at that moment. I was then waiting to the said place, but after 30 minutes of waiting, I didn’t see them. So I had to decide to go to the next station at Takasago Station. I thought at that moment, if there was a place where we could highly meet up, it will be at that station. There were no other stations beside that station where we could ride a train going to Shibamata station. Thankfully, 15 minutes after I arrived, I saw them and  feel relaxed. I was thankful to Japanese citizen, who helped me to find my way back to Takasago Station. Arigato Gozaimasu!

 

MAMIS NO BOUKEN: ON JAPAN DAY 3

Ok guys! Let’s continue what we have just started. After going through with our enjoyable first day and second day, let’s move to the next day for a far more exciting moments.

Day 3. The Imperial Palace and Imperial East Garden Tour plus Asakusa Shrine

We did fail in going inside the Imperial Palace on my first visit, and only came to Imperial East Garden. This time, together with my friends, we did see and be with other tourist inside the palace.

You need to get your visit be scheduled before going to the palace. Thanks to a certain blog, we got this idea beforehand. Through visiting the website of the imperial household agency almost all dates were full, lucky for us, the date the we planned to visit the said place has more slot for the 5 of us. Below is the print out that was send by the agency to be presented in front of Kikyo-mon Gate:

Upon arriving at  Kikyo-mon gate, you will be instructed to wait. After a while at exactly 10:00 AM we are now permitted to go inside and they let us gather to certain room.IMAGE 1

They then gave us hand outs, audio, and did informed us to go to the comfort room since the tour will take an hour and a half. Some of the visitors did do so, and that also goes for us. After a while they instructed us to line up as to start the tour guide. So here’s some sneak peek.

They didn’t let us go inside the buildings that were seen here. However, the scene was really great. The only thing it concerns me about this tour guide is that the personnel who handle this and speaks about the palace speaks Niponggo. Most of us tourist couldn’t understand it, except those tourist handed with an audio and the Japanese people. How nice will it be if they would hire someone to speak English for us tourist to get even more understanding about the place.

 Our next stop was the Imperial East Garden which is just near the palace. We did visit this place hoping for a cherry blossom, and when we came there it’s still a plum. Though it’s not yet the full bloom cherry blossom, my friends did loved it and I was astonished again for the second time around.

The next stop was the Asakusa Shrine. We didn’t get the opportunity to do a souvenir shopping for our friends and family from earlier trip. To our surprise, in this area there were so many store that sells different stuffs. Even hello kitty was there, which my friend keeps on talking about, wanted to buy for her co-officemates for a souvenir.  From all those products, it’s hard to pick which one to buy. And the most surprising thing is that, I did get to experience eating a Fish Bread!

image-91.jpg

I couldn’t believe it but I just did. I’ve been looking for this from my first trip, and even when I was then at Osaka and Kyoto, I didn’t get the chance to find one. It did took me to go to Tokyo for the second time around to eat this kind of bread. I just love the one with chocolate, and cheese flavour. It’s Oishi! Red Bean is something didn’t pass to my taste buds. Sorry.

So going back, another store that we were curious about is the Halal Restaurant called, Naritaya Halal.IMAGE 10

It cost us an hour to find this place. And it’s a popular resto for the Muslim tourist which cause us to wait up in line to be entertained. After waiting for a half a hour, I ordered a Ramen worth 1,200 yen.

img_0529.jpg

In fairness, my tummy is really satisfied and full after eating this ramyunJ I would recommend for those Muslim people who would love to eat some ramen. And just to let you know guyz, according to a Japan citizen, Asakusa is an area where most of the restaurant are halal. You need to grab a copy of a brochure at a guided tourist office to see it, and choose.

After experiencing ramen, we did planned to find a for rent Kimono. But due to some unpredicted event, we did delayed this plan for about an hour.  At around 5:15 pm, we hurried it up to find one, but most of the for rent Kimono House closed at 6:00 pm and didn’t cater us. Fortunately, one of the store recommend us to this certain shop, who provides a for rent Kimono until 7:00 PM. Without any further ado, we started to look for that store and ask some nearby citizen to help us out how to get there. It take us a minutes since what we’re looking for were just nearby and we didn’t notice it ahead. We directly went to the second floor of the building were ONE is located. As the elevator open its door, it took us by surprise by all the KIMONOS on standby waiting to be rented out. The female care taker told us, that it will take them 45 minutes to get us dressed, and cleared to us that it will be less hour to use the kimonos. After explaining those, we did told them that even for a less hour, we wanted to  experience wearing the outfit. Instead of doing it for 45 minutes, they did it less than that. As per observation, dressing a Kimono really take things complicated since it takes you to be dressed up layer by layer. This how it goes for us.

Thanks for the ONE SHOP for letting us wear this beautiful Kimono even just for an hour. Dreams do come true.

 

MAMIS NO BOUKEN: Japan Day 1 and 2 Adventure

Let’s continue our adventure from here on. I will then enumerate the things we did experienced from that trip as to shorten the long travel home.

DAY 1: I did go back to Shibuya Crossing Line. As always, shibuya is the utmost busiest crossing line in the whole world, and Hachiko stands near it as always as he does

Me and my co-officemates did went here the previous, but the difference is that  this time, together with my friends, did a little bit of sightseeing around shibuya.  It’s a bit confusing at first, but the whole place is a totally awesome. I bit it would be much better if you go around the place in a daylight.

While walking down the street, I was so surprised to see this store nearby.

image 5

It’s a Disney store.  I was looking for it through websites and did even search for the possible location of the store, but never thought that it would be in front of us that moment. Location is Zip code 150-0042, Humax Pavilion Shibuya Koen Dori, 20-15 Udagawa-cho, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo. We did buy our tickets in advance for our trip ticket at Disney Land

IMAGE 6

DAY 2: It’s a Mt Fuji day. The last time I went here at Mt. Fuji was kind of cold and didn’t show up until the end. We did go here through Hakone Line. However this time around, we choose to go through Kawaguchi Line.

image 7

image 8

Thanks to Google Map we did find our way going to the rendezvous point.  After arriving there, I was then so excited to go to Kachi Kachi Ropeway. According to some reviews, this place is a nice place to watch the mount fuji, and it has a story to tell but to our dismay the place was closed then. I was so sad about this, but what can I do about this? So, we then headed to our next trip, ride a boat around Kawaguchi river.

image-9.jpg

To my surprise, Mt Fuji was absolutely astonishing, marvellous and so beautiful that day. I could not describe it any better than those adjective I did mentioned. To give you a glimpse, here it is

image-10.jpg

Isn’t it so beautiful? How thankful I am to be there at a very picture-perfect moment. Now, here I am. I don’t blame Japanese people to be mesmerized with this delightful view. It gives a special feeling, a day to remember. We took our chance to grasp the view inside our memory from a 30 minutes boat sailing experience, and we always find ourselves in awe.

image 11

After the boat sailing, we thought of experiencing snow in this time of the year. Philippines is a tropical country, and snow is a big no no in our place, and we highly anticipated to experience this. However, it didn’t go as planned, yet snow was all over Kawaguchi side of the road. Happiness isn’t all about meeting our expectation, but finding it even in a smallest aspect of it. Most of us really enjoyed it, especially those three.

image 12

An hour of playing snow outside, we did drop some of our energy, ended up looking for a resto. From this quiet neighbourhood of Kawaguchiko, “Sun Poppo Coffee and Restaurant” was the place where we could find answering our hungry tummy.


We amazingly enjoyed staying near Mt Fuji thru Kawaguchiko. Before ending this Day 2, I would really love to share this figures we did find along the way.

DSC00283

I find this very artistic, but I could not find the meaning out of this figures. While looking around, I did came across a tablet with a writings that is plastered in a stone wall about the whole meaning of this, and it states:

THE SYMBOL STATUE OF KAWAGUCHIKO

This bronze statue is one of the last and finest masterpieces of Japan’s greatest sculptor, the late Saibo Kitamura. Kitamura visited Kawaguchiko at the age of 101 and was deeply moved by the magnificence of our surrounding mountain scenery as well as the mysterious quality of the lake itself. This statue is the product of the two long and laborious years he then spent in an effort to give this feeling of wonder form.

The vase portion of the statue represents Lake Kawaguchiko, fountain of wisdom, hope, life and plenty, in other words the source of life in all things. As for the two female figures dancing around the vase, the woman on the left represents “positive” and the woman on the right represents “negative”. The eternally varying dreams of these two opposites come together to become one in the “source” flowing on to symbolize the never-ending occurrence and renewal of life. The work is a truly powerful expression of man’s eternal search for the essence of the universe to which he aspires, given life and form through the genius and skill of this great master.

3/10/1987 The Town of Kawaguchiko.

Day 3 and 4 will be posted on the next blog

MAMIS No BOUKEN: Japan 2017

Hi guys! I haven’t written anything here last 2016, as I thought I could do the blogging thing here in our place, but I couldn’t. Our signal here was kinda slow, and this makes me  kind of less interested. However, I assumed I could not do it but luckily my interest in doing this is yet awaken again. What would be the things I will post? Maybe, I should go with the stuffs that interest me.

Some of you might already see my past post about my travel to Japan last 2015, but then again here I am another report on 2017 Japan Trip. This time I am with my college friends. Due to super anticipation with the said trip, I did made this while waiting for the time being

IMAGE 1

IMAGE 2

Of course, I didn’t post this before going, but after passing the immigration just to make sure.

IMAGE 3

Japan is my most wanted vacation trip that I ever dreamed of, and going there for the second time around was really an opportunity even just for 5 days. There were those thing I haven’t done during my 2015, and this time, it did came true. Before going any further this is the itinerary that I did, please do click the below attached document

TRAVEL ITINERARY FOR JAPAN

As a part of our needed documents for applying a Japan Visa, this one is a must (which I will enumerate to my next post about the needed requirements).

Most of this were done, but some aint, since our time is limited. From an  experience itself, I do recommend for everyone who is planning to take a vacation to set your trips in to 2 places per day. One place for the morning trip, and one place for the afternoon trip. If the time allows it, you can add for an evening trip. Maybe, eating a special delicacies in a resto to make the night more pleasing.               As a part of our needed documents for applying a Japan Visa, this one is a must (which I will enumerate to my next post about the needed requirements).

Going back to our trip, Alimo did reserved a hotel reservation  to Hotel Naka-Meguro with additional payment for Transportation going from Narita to the Hotel. It is very convenient for us to do this, since it allotted us more time to visit shibuya crossing line

image-4.jpg

In fron of Hotel Naka-meguro

Have you noticed something from my itinerary? At first I did booked a hotel from 3BR middle of SHIBUYA,SHINJYUKU,SHIMOKITAZAWA wifi through AirBNB. It is quite less, we were so please since it will cost us less. However, 2 weeks before our trip, the host cancelled our reservation without any further explanation. We were rattled about this, thinking were to book again and the money we just spend from that hotel. Two days after or more, were so thankful that air BNB haven’t paid the host for the said reservation, and returned the money to my friend’s credit card account in full. For those who are planning to book a hotel through Air BNB, assure your host that there will be no cancellation and if they are legit. (Will be continued on the next article)

The following days after December 31, 2014.

121714-2015

Another year is going at its end, and newly tide is now on its way to make everything different. Another year for celebrations, and year of adventure in our life. Do you think something will change in one’s life in this year? I guess so, because each of us has a destiny to fulfill, and what that is, is a surprise that we need to look forward to.

I’ve been browsing at wordpress.com, encoding the 2015 on the tag part to search for some resolution coming from other people. Many of them showed up different resolution in their life were you can find them as somewhat pleasing. People do has a way of doing things, hoping it will be the best. And yet, it is somewhat wonderful since it gives hope to one’s heart that somewhere in their life in this year, they change something for good. We are not perfect, we do make mistakes. It is an inevitable circumstances that human do have this kind of nature. You and I is not excuse for this true concept, but despite of this, I would say human is an awesome creation. Trying to make up for something that has gone wrong in their past life.

From previous years, we happened to learn so many things from our happy memories, and mostly from our sad memories. Usually, the sad one was something that triggers our loneliness. The deepest part of us, that saying “Someone help me, I don’t know what to do!” However, we want to disguise our weakness through showing others that “I am strong” which in reality, we gain cracks inside our heart once we felt the pain of being sad for something that had happened. Moving on is something that is hard. As they say “you must let go.” But let’s admit, this thing is a painful part in our life, yet we need it for us to free ourselves. Most of the human, and thousands of thousands of human even in the past felt this feeling in a most unexpected way. Circumstances always make us feel this pain before a person come along in his/her twilight zone in his/her life, and I am not exempted to that. I was born in an average family. At first we don’t have anything, but we do have each other for almost years, I never gained any problems except from my school thing. However, after 23 years of living, I did encounter one thing, my ex-husband. We broke up days ago, which I stated in my past blog. I don’t want to go into details, but as I felt I am not yet transcending myself in letting go. He is the first person who made me feel the true pain is. Truly, loving a person is something that will cause pain and that you will find yourself in the weakest form once it’s broken, and I did. I felt miserable being together with him. One thing is, it flash right into my face, the real weakness inside me and the reflection of who I truly am. Instead of encouraging me, he didn’t helped any of it, but instead he keep on piling up so many things that I couldn’t handle. It is like, our relationship is a curse that we need to be part ways. I feel terribly sad about it, and I am always asking if when will be the day I need to let go of this pain? I am hoping that next year, will be the time I will learn to let go.

Aside from this, I list all of the things I planned to do this year 2015 and here it is:

               (I need to upload my mind mapping sooner)

                My plan somewhat scramble, but mind mapping is indeed a good things in planning. It is missed up, but I still need to arrange it within this two days before the year ends. I want to implement this plan by January, hopefully. So In order give a view in my plan, let’s summarize it shall we? Let’s take them one by one.

  1. Spiritual – This is the most important priorities that I needed to accomplish. I’ve planning on to grow this part of me, yet I couldn’t for the fact that myself wouldn’t. I might say that it is my nafs or desire that make this thing out of my priorities. However, this year I will try the best as I can to be within my goal. May Allah guide me, and give tawfiq inside my mind to fulfill this.
  2. Different path – I wouldn’t state this thing directly in here for I am certain that someone might see this blog which I want this to be safe yet. But I am planning to try a certain path that might lead me somewhere, and learn the things I needed.
  3. Travel – I really wanted to go to JAPAN. I am hoping that this year will be that significant year where I will be having an adventure in this said place.
  4. Going to School and learn – I will do this practical thing which I would like to go to if my second list will be operational, if not, I guess I have to look for another thing to fulfill this.
  5. Save Money- OMG! My weakness! For almost six years I’ve been using my salary extravagantly without saving anything. Look at me right now, I’m yet at the starting point to save something.
  6. Read Books- I am not much of a reader, but I do believe that once you find a book that you will enjoy, it is like sweet cake, that you will grave for it always.
  7. Self-Development – I am my young adult stage, and I felt I’m still young child inside. Selfish and self-centered. I don’t want to go on like this. I want to mature and enhance myself with things that I needed the most.
  8. Exercise – I do this thing, but not that totally rigorous. I, particularly stop, go, stop and go with my exercise thing.

I am hoping that my list will be followed next year. Of course, it will depend on me. I do have a tendency to procrastinate, but as much as I can, time is an essence in living our lives. I guess, I’ve wasted too much time which I could not count them, if they did productive or not. Evaluating from my previews year, I guess none. However, I want to believe that I could do so many things in this year of the rum. I was watching “Once Upon a Time Series” and I could tell that what I’ve learned is to believe and have faith in all the things that I needed. I guess, I have to contemplate and meditate and ask myself from everything that had gone wrong, and things I couldn’t do. In this way I might find a better changes by next year. Live and Believe.
