day28~Canto~

 

 

 

Hey guys !! I am a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

I feel that I enjoy this weekend too much.

 

Actually , I had another plan with my Taiwanese friend Pai this Friday . Above all I said it first.lol

But when I talked to her about my batch mate farewell party , she allowed to reschedule  our plan  .  I pretty appreciate for her kind. So today we went to eat out instead of Friday .

First , we went to SM mall for buying needs. The thing I want was only umbrella .

And then , we went to a restaurant called CANTO on foot.

 

Haru(Japanese), Juna(Japanese),   and… oh I forgot his name… I need to ask him later. He is from Korea. Very gentle and smart guy.  And Pai(Taiwanese ).

Japanese friend Haru recommended CANTO to us. It seems that she heard about this restaurant from her roommate. She always takes good care of her health that’s why her body is slim .  Above them , I thought  there would be great protein there  if she says nice!! And Haru looks like a Japanese male bass guitar player「Backy 」.

He was producer of SORAMIMI. Big eye, slim body , how to make smile,,,Her all is similar to him. lol

 

Anyway, that foods were awesome !

We enjoyed having big stake and fresh strawberry juice , nice beef stew,and so on.  It was  very delicious and I was over the moon. However Pai didn’t like this meat , so I feel sorry for her….

 

 

After that,  Pai said she wants to see my bass play. We went to the bar concoction.

The host band was also same with last time. I was really happy they remember me .  The vocalist called my name through the microphone on the stage, and I joined them.

Then I knew the bass guitar player is a multi player! I borrowed his instrument as a result  he played the guitar instead of bass without pick.

I was thinking I would be unable to play with him because we’re  same instrument, but we could ! I was in seventh heaven♪

 

I had a fun time today, too. Thanks everyone.

day27~The camp~

 

 

 

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

 

TODAY’S MEAL MENU

breakfast

banana /  watery cooked rice /

lunch

kimchi / green kimchi  deep fried zucchini / deep fried chicken / soup /

 

 

I often hear the name “CAMP” from many students and teacher here in Beci.

According to the student who has  gone  there,the building has 3 floors. 1st floor is bar&restaurant . 2nd floor is dance club. 3rd floor is pub that has garden.

 

I and my batch mate went to the 3rd floor, pub HARDLN.

 

It was nice location but it was full of BECI students . That’s why many people call here “”2nd BECI”.

It seems that there is live performance every night. Beci’s teacher is also one of the singers here.

The band was simple. Acoustic guitar, cajon , vocal(teacher.lol)

 

We could enjoy drinking and listening to the good music.

There is no taxi driver who doesn’t know here.

Without question, the camp is the most famous places here in Baguio,the Philippines.

If you come here, try.

day24~group class~

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I am a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

 

 

breakfast

bread / papaya / salad / stir fried rice / soup /

 

lunch

fresh salad / beansprout / rice / something fried deep / miso soup / front mix / kimchi /

 

dinner

rice / meat and potato / kimchi / spinach / sweet potato / vermicelli soup /

 

 

 

It’s the time to change group class.

Normally student choose 1 speaking group class, 1 listening group class. I also chose them previous classes.

Above them, I felt something uncomfortable in the listening class. Either The teacher and  classmates  was nice. I enjoyed the class every time. However there were a lot of new vocabulary or idiom there. I thought I should better learn speaking and vocabulary and idiom before listening class cause if I could hear about it, I never under stand the sounds mean. I’m sure it can’t make me improve easier .

Then I was considering what subject I should choose. There are speaking class, vocabulary class, grammar class, writing class except listing.

First, in the case of vocally, I always memorized vocabularies by myself,so in my opinion I don’t need some help as far.  That’s why I don’t need to choose this subject.

Second , grammar. Actually I have attended night class it is kinda vocabulary. In the class, I can exactly understand the grammar . Although I don’t have many chance to speak English in the class every time.  Just one class is good enough for grammar . The night class last more several days. So I wanna choose other subject .

I was thinking about writing, too. I write English everyday with too poor English .lol  It would be possible that my english blog turn into awesome. I thought choosing writing class is one of the options . But I checked the detail about the class, it was written how to write business mail….  Oh I might not a business woman… I exchange some message with foreign musicians now and then but I don’t need to use too correct formal English. If I write like that, They will worry about me…lol And It also doesn’t have a chance to speak.

Finally , I ended up choose two speaking class. I’m pretty sure it would be the best way to improve my English skills earlier .

day23~pronunciation~

 

 

Hey guys!! I am a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

Today, I couldn’t take pictures of meals because the battery died.

Oh , I uploaded new video on youtube for the first time in a while.

Larry Graham’s song, The jam.

I shoot the video when I was in Japan. I think it was September 13th . The reason I remember is that I shoot the video on the day of gig.

 

By the way, my Vietnamese roommate said to me that she is not good at listening to Japanese English pronunciation , but she can understand my English because according her my pronunciation is clear.

 

I was really surprised . In fact, I see that when I’m talking  about something longer, some teacher frowns  . It brought my opinion that my pronunciation is terrible.

At first , most teachers corrected my pronunciation every time. But  these days some teacher turned into that they don’t correct so often. Then I thought they realized  that I don’t have a sense of speaking correct pronunciation.  I’m not sure, however maybe I’m getting better….. ? I hope so.

day21~jam with local musicians~

 

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I am a bass guitar player Juan Serita!!

I have always considered  where I can play the bass guitar with local musicians.

So when I was in Japan ,I searched on the Internet, then I found some music clubs and sent messages to the owner  .

And then I expect the best music bar is Concoction Baguio.

I invited Rocky because Rocky loves music. Rocky was afraid if the bar is dangerous place. She has heard that some student was stolen their wallet  in other night club and she was worried about my few information. It is open 24 hours and there is the live performance everyday.

Anyway It’s been already  2 weeks I came here. I have never had a session with someone. I AM A BASS GUITAR PLAYER JUNA!   I never want to forget it. And I am just interested in Filipino local musicians. Those are  why I was looking for the good music bar here in Baguio, Philippines.

We went there by taxi . The time that we arrived there was  9:20 p.m. But it was crowded with people yet.

And we could see the live performance of local musicians. I didn’t know the songs played by them, I think it is old American hit songs…. maybe.

All musician was great. Especially I respect the bass guitar player. I was really pleased with his reggae music groove  !!  Above them they has too much repertoire and if audience request songs, they can play!.

When the vocalist asked if we have some songs that wanna listen to, I told him that I wanna play with them in a pound voice from our seats .

They asked me weather I can sing, I said to them I WANNA PLAY THE BASS GUITAR!

The band member and audience looked be very surprised and the bass guitar player lend me his instrument. Thankful.!

On the stage , the guitar player or vocalist asked me some question through the microphone  , but I couldn’t understand what they meant because of my poor English skill. lol  Maybe audience also was laughing me…I was really ashamed….I need to study English harder…lol

 

We played two songs!!

 

Then

 

I exactly realised that Filipinos loves music and it reminded the great feeling that I had a live performance for the first time in my life…. I appreciate of the kindness of all people.

Rocky was very surprised . She said to me that she had expected playing the bass guitar is just hobby for me but it was wrong. She always asked me to play the bass guitar front of her.

So I’m so happy to show my performance to her.♪

After the performance, young two mens talked to us and drunk together. Maybe in Japan, it is called “nampa”..? lol

Although , they are our first local friends ! Thanks for the fun time!!

When we ware going back to our dorm, Rocky said

「I’m your big fun!!! Why didn’t you tell me anything!?  I thought bass is just your hobby but you are professional … Ahhh I really don’t want to go back to Korea… I wanted to know the bar earlier…」

 

Rocky looked be pleased with the bar. I agree with her. Probably I ‘m gonna go to the bar concoction again !!

I had a best night .

In the break time, I was just looking at the picture of me and Rocky .

 

 






Oh…. Compared with Rocky, exactly  dark. lol

A couple of days ago, my friend asked me why my skin is dark.

No reason . I didn’t mean it. I just answered .

 

 

「Having dark skin is the best way to hide my body hair.」

So we tried today !!!

Rocky 「Can I have menu?」

Owner「Oh… We have only…..」

They have only these. Very simple.

3 kinds of stir fried meat and vegetables and soup stocked fish.

We enjoyed having dinner at the terrace seats.

The owner told us teachers of BECI(our school) also come to the restaurant often in their lunch break time.

In the terrace seats, we could see the beautiful natural view.

I love here in the Philippine. It’s much different from Tokyo.  It is always crowded with people , we are always busy..

Rocky told me I can come there again anytime, but I will unable to enjoy without her.

She never know how important person she is .

I send Japanese manager to see if I can attend class from today.

 

Juna 「Can I attend class today !?!?」

Manager「How about the condition of your left eye? If it’s perfect, you can attend.  Otherwise, some students would be afraid. Is the congestion getting better?」

「(Photo)This is today’s my eye.」

「How about eye mucus?」

「I removed it this morning already. I think sometimes it come out.」

「Well, if you feel icchi or eye mucus come out , make sure to take care with a handkerchief and wash your hands every time.」

 

「!!! Thank you !! I’ll going now!!!!!!」

「However If some students or teachers would be  afraid, then I will not let you attend all classes again. lol  Take care! 」

 

As a result , I could attend all class today!!!!! REALLY HAPPY!!

 

Actually my eye is still kind of red. Although I can understand it’s getting better little by little.  I think it takes another 3days.

 

But when I stayed in the office building  alone, the chance to have English conversation with someone is few. So I was very nervous when I have to speech about my opinion in the group speaking class.

I need to undergo rehabilitation .
