EXPLORING SINGAPORE

Front Cover

This will be my first entry for the Month of May. I haven’t had the chance to share my experience about our trip to Singapore and Malaysia last 2015. So I’ll be just sharing some pictures of our travel back then. Like anybody else, I did enjoy our trip thanks to Cebu Pacific Promo deals, and especially thanks to my friends. It has been one of many memorable things I had for the year 2015.

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.

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!

 

A Clan Reunion

OMG! It’s been six days that I haven’t done my assignment here on Ultimate Blog Challenge. I have been trying the past few days, but since we have a slow connection here in our place, it is somewhat kind of irritating when this sort of thing happens. Sorry my dear readers for this undeniable regret of unposting written words to be shared to the whole wide world. ^_^

Anyhow, when I was typing this statements, I was hoping that this one will be posted on this 11th day of the UBC. So, here we go, the thing I am going to share with you guys was our family reunion last October 6, 2014. Here in our country, we did had our holiday on that day for the Muslim Celebration of Edil Adha. It was fortunate that this celebration had be fall on two days before. So, we took the opportunity to enjoy this day together with our family, as spearheaded by my mother’s first cousin. Oh! By the way, the clan that I am telling here is from my mother side, specifically to her father, my maternal grandfather. I was not really into this reunion at first and wanted to stay at home. I was thinking then that it would make sense if I’ll do this since I’ll be tending our store for the whole day, and sale some goods even a little. After thinking, I did considered my mother’s cousin’s effort to convince us to join on the said reunion. So I finally decided just to join in, and not to be scolded by him when I don’t go. Will, I guess, it doesn’t hurt much if I hadn’t go there by any chance. So far, I couldn’t get every details into words. For this I will be posting selected pictures that will totally give you a scene to the said reunion. (I didn’t mentioned our family clan on this blog, since I am expecting for them not to see my blog..hehe unless they will). So, here are some pictures to be shared:

Presentation1

Before we leave, we were waiting for someone. Since they didn’t arrive early on, we just played along to take a picture while waiting at our gate way together with my auntie and nieces.

Presentation2

After an hour of travelling more than 30 kilometers away from home, we did arrive at our rendevouz point, at Villa Lacida, Linamon, Lanao del Norte. Many of my relatives were there, and for so many years of not seeing them, this year was our another meeting for such a long time. The adults were somehow their in order to listen to speeches on the prepared program by our relatives. I was their sitting at the last end of the table. Guess, where I am? Hehe (I guess, you couldn’t..hehe)

Presentation3

While the young adults, and elders where in the program meeting.The young ones where doing there own thing. And that is, to have FUN together with everyone! ^_^

Presentation4

I was a little bit shocked seeing those young ones all in one. Some of those were my nephews and niece from my cousins, who brought their children along. It is such a wonderful thing seeing them lively.

Presentation7

While taking pictures of the people around, I did caught a bunch of people who were in different trip on that day. I guess, this people were an athlete players, playing along the sea shore.

Presentation8

I did capture this picture, and I did love this one. Seeing a happy children while swimming gives a positive vibes.

Presentation9

Row! Row! Your boat! A Big sister and two little brothers riding on a boat. ^_^ Hope they did enjoy the scene and the ride!

Presentation10

While I was sitting there taking my rest from taking pictures. I thought of taking Aisha a picture. Her first one, was kind of bad since she was serious. So I took another picture, telling her to smile. She did try to smile, but instead of smiling she did showed this expression that you see. Isn’t it cute??? Hehehe..Cute! Cute! Litte niece

Presentation11

Haha! Love this picture as well, a snap shot from the person whose going to have a nice swim.

Presentation12

This is the main game! I love this picture since it shows many expression. These people who was holding a man in his orange t-shirt were all my cousins. Either you like it or not, if they catch you, they will hold you and throw you on the sea side. Im so thankful that they were doing this only to boys or else, I am sure I am an unlucky one if they did this to girls!

Presentation13

Presentation14

Reunion is a good thing for families to held. In our case, the family decided to take this reunion twice a month of every year in order to close the bond between relatives that has been lost for a long time and amend those misunderstanding issue between each other. I guess, its not a wrong thing to be in here. The only thing is that I was not that so close with them, but I am glad seeing them healthy and strong. Allah bless everyone! And see you soon in the next grand!

School Computer Cafes vs. Instructional Computer Games

School Computer Cafes VS Instructional Computer Games

th

Students play games at home and nearby school computer cafes. How do these games differ from instructional computer games?

The differences are greatly big, though the tools used were the same. Technology change in a vast speed in a blink of a day or months, and then new gadget suddenly created. Human intelligent are getting in the next level far differ from that of the people from the previous generation. However, maybe many of us were thinking, does this technology give us some sort of negative and positive impact in each livelihood or living?

The positive side of this technology is that, it did give us to live in a more easy way. We can do a lot of things out of this technology, and even do greater things on us. What we see in our environment reflects what technology has done to the human life. Computer as one of this became an extreme factor in giving way to a massive storage of information and a greater help in communication. I guess if we are going to estimate the ratio of possibility, 9 out of 10 people already have their computer at their homes. This became one of the necessities and we could probably say became one of appliances, which is a part of the household. The kids in today’s generation can already manipulate technology, and lots of people were using this one in order to promote each ideal and share what they already have in mind. The 21st century kids are far more into this techy stuff. But too much of doing this sort of things can be harmful in some cases.

Due to the demand of this kind of gadget, computer cafes were being built or provided by those business people as a part of their income generating thing. The purpose of this was for those people to access information and does a lot of stuff that they needed for their requirements in their daily life. However, there are those cafes that provide service having more games installed in their system, and most of these cafes are located near the school. For those business minded people, building this kind of café near the school could make their income rise in a far greater sale since kids are into this thing, and they knew that this location is better without thinking the possible effect on the kids’ school standing. The School computer cafes and instructional computer games are different.

The said school computer cafes were most likely entertaining games. One very popular game that was being played online was like that of DOTA, RAGNAROK and etc. These were created for amusement for the kids. Most of them really were having fun doing this, but some gets a more harmful on their grades because instead of making an assignment, they just go to a café and do a lot of games instead. This stuff really cause a harsh part to some parents because they were thinking that their kids were doing the best of their ability to go to school, but only to find out some of their kids skipping classes just for this purpose. This is why some parents need to monitor their kids in order to know what they were doing. In the instructional computer games, though bought of them were being created as games and for amusement, this ICG was created with a twist. The twist in here is the learning that it could give to the kids. They were given in order for the kids to learn in a fun more setting. We can totally understand that people have different level of learning, and some wanted more amusing in order to awaken their interest. This instructional computer games were being built to fight the boredom of some students who lack motivation when they run out to drive them. It became helpful for the teachers since it could give them some idea that they could use in class subject.

Parents need to supervise their kids in using this technology. They could put both of these games in their computer as a way of monitoring them. If kids wanted to play games then give them time with a specific limit, and teach them as well on instructional computer games for them to shift the kids’ interest from the entertaining games to learning games.
