Adventure Day 1: Hollywood CA

My first day in CA went really well–talking about going to Hollywood and get groceries in Costco (where muricans get their groceries). :)) Gustong-gusto ko yung weather dito na usually ranges from 16-23 degrees C. Baguio ang peg diba? Now I know kung ba’t di trip ng mga tao ditong maligo. :))

But as for me, I love the hot shower here so I had bathe twice. :))

So ito talaga yung details with my first day here in States:

Nagising ako around 3 in the morning. Maybe ’cause jetlag and sobrang gutom na ko! Good thing I have my pack of Sky Flakes (buti na lang talaga) so may pantawid gutom ako. :)) At around 7am, for breakfast I had cheeseburger. Nakalimutan ko siyang picturan cause I was so hungry I could eat a live woman hahahahaha.

Around 10am we went to Hollywood. Yey! Sayang lang sobrang layo namin dun sa Hollywood sign so di ko rin napicturan. Pero nakita ko with my very own eyes. It was…just a sign. :))

Before we went to the famous sidewalk in the world, we had Cheeseburger (again) for lunch in In ‘n Out Burger. Ito daw yung parang authentic burger shop ng California and sobrang affordable ng price nila.

Sobrang benta saken yung calorie count sa menu. Sorry na. Hahahaha :))

And this is our food. It’s really good! Small size pa lang nila di ko na maubos. Then yung drinks nila unlimited forever so it’s really heaven. I had pink lemonade kasi puro Coke na ko sa plane eh. :))

$17 for four people is a good deal. Naks!

So this is us. :))

Then after namin kumain we went to the Hollywood street! Ok so di ko tanda anong name ng street basta ang alam ko may stars yung tiles. HAHAHAHA. So this is one of the pictures I got

And I found my father! :O Hahahaha!

So after strolling around Hollywood, we went to Costco. Ito yung parang SM Hypermarket nila dito. They get everything here wholesale and for good deals too. May nakita akong bag na worth $18 lang eh back in Ph it’s around $60-$75 (2500-3k pesos) yung price. Sayang lang di namin kasama si Papa dito may financer sana ako. Chos :))

And I get to experience free samples sa grocery nila. Mwahahaha >:)

And what’s cool here is that when you pay your grocery items, wala nang cashier and bagger. You just scan the items by yourself then insert your credit card/cash in a machine and voila! Nabayaran mo na groceries mo. Cool no? Kung ganito lang din sa Pinas eh. Pero malabo hahaha.

So when we got home I took a nap kasi sobrang inantok na ko then when I woke up dinner na. Hello naman sa 6:30pm dito pero tirik-na tirik pa ang araw. :)) We had a half-western-half-asian dinner. Bakit half-asian? Kasi may rice. WUHOOOOO!!!

Image

We had salad and rare-cooked steak and raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and cherries for dessert. Man, di ako fan ng cherries til I tasted the most legit one here! Fake pala yung cherries na nasa fruit cocktails natin, or say sobrang processed na. Dito kasi sobrang sarap eh and iba yung itsura. Again, di na ko nakapagtake ng picture cause I was really enjoying my food. And sayaaa! 🙂

At around 9am, Michelle, a friend way back 7 years ago (she visited in the Philippines and stayed with us for two months) went to our place to visit! Grabe sobrang tagal na talaga bago kami nagkita and sobrang saya na we were able to catch up!

So that sums up my first day here in US. So far so good. Masaya pa naman ako. Looking forward to more happier days and adventures here! Hahahaha 🙂

 

Let Da Abenchur Begin!

Let Da Abenchur Begin!

After 10 years of being on queue on several checkpoints, nakaupo na rin kami! Kung hassle makapasok sa local flights, x100 pa pag sa international. Descriminating lang sa part natin cause nagmumukha talaga tayong di katiwa-tiwala. But well, Pinas kaso ‘to eh. Hahaha.

Departure time’s at 6:40am, bound for Nagoya, Japan. Please wish us a safe 5-hour trip! 🙂

Hidden Desire

Hidden Desire

So it all started as a hidden desire. Pinangarap (yes pangarap talaga eh no) ko, or say, binulong ko sa Kanya yung gusto kong gawin after graduation. When I was grad-waiting, I felt all the unnecessary stress that a graduating college student shouldn’t be feeling at that time. A normal graduating student should be enjoying his last days in college with friends and buddies and, if grateful enough, spend time with their favorite instructors. But as for me, it went the other way around: My barkada kind of split-up when something ‘terrible and traumatic’ happened sometime in October. I had to control my tongue or it may be used against me. I had to be with 2 of my very close and trusted friends most of the time, and other introvert shiz that you can imagine. My last days of college life weren’t as fun as I’ve ever thought that I’ve become quite…sad. So, that’s when I had this desire of going to a place that no one knows me, to be able to spend alone and experience real tranquility myself. 🙂
