I brought my ESP bass guitar in the Philippines . Of course it is not bad, but never beat this.   I’m keen to sleep with it tonight….. Perhaps everyone doesn’t know how much I was missing it!!

 

Although I didn’t have enough time to play it today.

I thought I took vacation  until 17th   since I wanted to focus on preparation for my gig, but seems like I did not do it and my English lesson in Japan restarted today.

I’m attending group class ,but fortunately the student was only me. lol

The teacher is  same with before.  He was interested in my experience in the Philippines.

Surely I have many stories to tell him , so we had a livery conversation.

 

Teacher「Is there any difference between Japan and foreign countries?」

Juna「Uhh  maybe there are many differences ….  but the things I was really surprised is  most foreigners think Japanese women are bitch . The reason is that they thought so from Japanese adult videos . Of course I told them “No” because it is just business.  The process is  depends on the person. : ( 」

Teacher 「Ahh,  I think not bitch.  Some people think just “EASY”.」

Juna「Oh.. I see. 」

 

 

I don’t wanna be easy…. lol

 

We had talked  for an hour without pause.

To be honest, I was always nervous when talk to him before  because I couldn’t understand what he said sometimes and also I couldn’t express what I want to say  .  However today, I almost  understood what he said . And even if I couldn’t understand, I can ask him in English and he will explain in other word.

And the reason I picked up the conversation topic on the blog in spite of the fact that we also had other topics  is that I don’t mean to like dirty topic, but I was just happy that now  I can debate like this private topic in English. : D hehe

He was very surprised at my improvement .

After the class, the stuff recommended that I transfer two levels higher class.

 

It sounds like very difficult…..

 

I ‘ll just bite the bullet .

 

 

 

see ya

 

 

Today’ s workout

・3sets of 30 squats

・3sets of 15 bulgarian squats

・3sets of 40 back kicks

day82~I’m STUPID ; ( ~

 

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Today I left this international school.

Many friends told me they will miss me.  I can’t believe why I have so many friends now.  I’m so lucky that I could get to know you guys ; ) !!

 

And also I already got my diploma , but I just wanted to say good by and give letters to my teachers . So I went each classes.

They gave some present and letter …. I’ve never expected that….

I don’t wanna read it otherwise  I  will be keen to stay here longer  …lol

I’m going bananas !! Those will be my treasures .  ; ( !!!

And also we enjoyed final volleyball game and pizza party.

I’m pretty sure I’m always laughing here because of you guys.

 

And I got some pictures taken with my sweet roommates.

They all are so kind to me all the time even though I walk in our room without clothes after taking shower. : D

And also they accept that I practice playing the bass guitar and singing at the balcony . Actually I’m often afraid whether I’m noisy or not.  Sorry, and Thank you!!

She is my Vietnamese batch-mate Sarah  .

She really knows my act well. To get a terrible diarrhea one term  a month , being so tired after changed course everyday . Above them she often told me her opinion as an advice . I ‘m so grad to be cared by you .  I’m gonna miss your shining smile so much…..

 

Thanks for good memories …!!!!

 

When I leave here, many friends came to the front of gate to say “good bye” to me.   Time flies truly .

I’ll never forget you all ; ( !!!

 

And then  my close friend Pai saw me off the bus station.   I said to her that go ahead please ’cause I’ll feel so lonely if I stay with her anymore.  After I got in the bus, she went.

 

 

 

 

Thanks  my friends everything.  

 

 I’ll never forget you all  .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then,  a woman was sitting on my seat.

 

 

Juna「Excuse me..? Is it your seat….? because my number is 2C .」

Filipino「I’m also 2 C

Juna & Filipino「???? why????」

Filipino「I’ll look for stuff and ask.」

Juna「Okey I should go with you.」

 

We found the stuff at  front of the door . Then there were some people who I know . Surprisingly they ware my school’s friends in addition, one of them also had a number “2C”….. lol

Seems like triple booking…  Exactly our all seat was 2C and the departure was  7 PM…..

 

 

Suddenly the stuff said to me

 

 

 

「Is it yours?  It is 9th.   Tomorrow  tomorrow.  Today is 8th .」

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

J「・・・・・・・・・・・・」

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you kidding me……!?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, he was right.

I had perfectly misunderstood that today is 9th .

 

Therefore, I took a taxi and came back to the school……. Of course, the security guard was wondering why I came back…

I’m so embarrassed !!! ; (

 

I already told my many friends “GOOD BYE” and they saw me off in front of the gate!!

And  I LEFT  !!!

However I’m still in the school …… it’s too weird ….  my gush what a stupid woman I am .…. ; (   ; (  ; (   Which means I’ll stay here tonight , too.

I don’t wanna see my friends anymore . lol

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just now my friend Pai sent a message to me “I forgot take your ID card!!”.

She was asking me that she want my school ID card when I leave here as a memory.

 

 

Juna「Don’t worry.  See you soon.」

 

Pei 「・・・・・・・」

 

Pei「Yes… see you soon.」

day78~booked !!~

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

TODAY’S MEAL

breakfast

cabbage / papaya / rice porridge / pan cake /

lunch

spinach  / kimchi / deep fried to-fu / bean sprout soup / deep fried chicken /

dinner

watermelon / hamburger / stir fried vegetable and meat / seaweed soup / rice vermicelli /

 

Today I was looking for the room I’ll stay when I’ll be in Los Angeles .

First, I found a quite cheap dormitory near by downtown.

Which has wifi,breakfast, and so on .. but there is no laundry …  So  I was considering this and another one.

And I consulted my mother,too.   She said that I should choose a higher grade hotel  ’cause safety is most important. Above all ,she will be worried if I will choose it.

I told her that my budget is not enough at all, so  I can’t afford to spend money for accommodation  .

Then she asked me whether I know the fact that this dormitory is mixed-gender room , and she thinks  probably  there would be some guys who apply for doing “something” in the mixed-gender room.

 

To be honest, I overlooked the information ….lol   I’m so embarrassed : D

Of course , I shouldn’t choose it even if the male roommate is my close friend.  I don’t wanna be pregnant still now… : (

All men are always “wolf” even though I’m not an attractive woman  .   : )

 

 

And the other accommodation doesn’t say anything about the  bedroom set-up .  So I sent a message to the owner.

Juna「Hello I’ m Japanese 23 years old female Juna. How are you? The reason I go to LA is for NAMM show and I wanna look around LA’s music scene for my music learning . Your house is very clean in spite of the fact that very cheap . But I have one uneasiness . I couldn’t see the photo of the bed room . How is it??」

Owner 「Hi Juna. Don’t worry . We are brand-new house . We have room for girl.

 

The owner gave me response quickly . It helped me. Therefore I booked this owner’s room.

I told about it to my mother ,too.   Maybe she is relieved a little…?

Anyway, I can’t wait LA trip!!!

 

See you in LA or NAMM ; D

When I and yuki had a lively conversation at the lounge , all of a sudden my Chinese friend Borges asked us whether we wanna try to drink cappuccino which made by him .

I was truly surprised ’cause I had  never expected his great skills like this.  He’ll go to MBA after graduation of the school. So  I was wondering  why he is taking barista course without a plan to take working holiday.

He told me this is just inference for him.

He is my classmate of IELTS. I haven’t seen that he was absent from the class. Very studious guy actually.

Thanks Borges! It was superb!!

 

And also after eating dinner,my Taiwanese friend James offered some dishes he made to the students who was at the dining room .

It beat me and I was wondering  why James is cooking . His best friend Borges said “James just likes cooking, it is his hobby .”

However, the tastes was not amateur level. He is professional ….

I want him to open his Taiwanese restaurant in Japan without flattery . . Shinjuku or Shibuya would be convenient for me  : D    If he’ll do, I’ll attend there  3times a week

day66~meals for building body~

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

TODAY’S MEAL MENU

breakfast

Cheese and sausage sandwich / apple / ramen / stir fried minced beef and potato / rice / a cup of black coffee /

lunch

stir fried meat and vegetables / fresh salad / kimchi / sweet potato / deep fried fish / vermicelli soup /

dinner

kimchi / tomato seasoned with sugar(I wonder why… )/  broccoli / deep fried vegetables / cooked chicken / soup /

 

I was happy since today’s breakfast had protein more than usual !!  It always beats me why this school’s breakfast is mostly only carbohydrates … : |   (there are platens and vegetables now and then, though.)

When I talked about this story to a teacher , she said that this is because breakfast!We need to take enough calories  for working all day!!Breakfast is most important!!That’s why we should take carbohydrates in the morning!!

….hmmmm, of course it also can be..    I had many ideas about her opinion , particularly  I wanted to tell her only carbohydrates is not enough for building muscles .  Although, I realized it would be difficult to explain about it well  in English, and also takes time.  As a result I just gave up …  embarrassed …

 

The reason I’m talking about protein now is that these days I’ve restarted building my body for next gig in Japan.

I hate to show up in front of my fans with my current body cause I got fat  : (  I’ll manage until then.

Unfortunately , definitely it’ll be hard on me to build body with only school meal in addition to I don’t have enough time to exercise .  Still, I wanna stay being musician.

I should just do my ass off….ω

 

 

See ya!!

day 62~PH….~

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

TODAY’S MEAL MENU

breakfast

water melon / potato / kimchi / watery cooked rice /

lunch

beans sprout / fruits salad / kimchi / gimbap / clam chowder /

dinner

fried chicken / kimchi / eggplant / green onion soup /

 

 

I wanted to go to a bar for jamming.  Before that I bought toilet paper 24rolls and a bus ticket for going back to Japan .

As a result, my budget got be only 200 PH …. lol

I need 100 PH for taking a taxi to the dormitory , so I can spend only 100 PH… It’s possible to drink only a grass  in a bar, but music bar must be more expensive than normal bar.  Above them, all of exchanger was closed already..

I couldn’t play music last week, too.  So I didn’t want to give up .. I looked for some bar which has live bands . I expected my favorite bar CONCOCTION doesn’t have full band today .  I had no ideas except concoction cause  most Philippines bars don’t have web site which have plenty of information about it.

I walked around on session road . Some bars seemed to have performances , but it was acoustic probably .

 

Then it was 10:30 PM already. I felt a little afraid since I’m a woman… 😀

I couldn’t help to come back to the dormitory .. : (

 

 

I’m so frustrated : (  Therefore after coming back , I played the bass guitar until late night… : (

He is the  groove muster . I can’t explain how marvelous his play is in my words , either  English or Japanese.   incredible backing groove , moreover his surpassing solo play. That is why I’m stealing his phrase : D
