day75~ring~

 

 

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

 

This morning I ate 5 pieces of watermelon ,kimchi ,stir fried rice , a bowl of soup , and bread for breakfast .

And for lunch I ate cabbage , two peaces of deep fried chicken,stir fried vegetables,kimchi, and a bowl of soup.

dinner menu was stir fried vegetables , deep fried vegetables , kimchi , a bowl of egg soup ,curry , and  a spring rolled banana.

 

 

Today’s workout involved  3sets of 15 back extensions ,  3 sets of 10  barbell shrug(60LB), 3sets of 10 bent over rowing( 60 LB),  and 3 sets of 15 one arm dumbbell rowing ( 8 LB).

 

I am  proud that my lower body muscle feel sore enough from yesterday’s workout today and hope tomorrow I can feel result of my workout in my backs and  shoulder .

 

After eating dinner I went to the center of city to buy souvenirs for my families with jeepney .

I’m a student ,so I pay only 13.5PH(around 0.27 $). Compared with taking a taxi(around 100 PH),quite cheap , isn’t it?

Actually this is my first time ’cause I didn’t have a chance to use it. I’m pretty sure I’m gonna choose jeepney from now on when I found it first.

Well, I’ve bought some things on the session road,but it is still not good enough in spite of the fact that my rest of the money is only few… ; (

The best purpose I went out alone today  is that  I wanted to go to a bar named Other Office for jamming with local musicians . My Filipino friend I met at a bar recommended the bar to me. Unfortunately , I couldn’t find it and all the people I asked didn’t know…

I think most Baguio people doesn’t have much  in common with each other . .   Even taxi drivers also  didn’t know….

It was already 11:00 PM, so I ended up to give up to go there and tried to take a taxi, but…….   : (

They don’t stop at all…Above them ,I was waiting around 3 hours.. wow  what a day..

Oh but I had only one good thing it is that I found a good ring which matches me!!

I’d been looking for a  ring like that since I came here..

I’m satisfied with it ; )   It was 120 PH(around 2.4$) at Night Market .

It’ll be one of my treasures ; )♪

day74~It’s my first time…~

 

 

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

TODAY’S MEAL

breakfast

pancake / apple / minced beef / soup / black coffee /

lunch

spinach / tomato  / kimchi / sausage  / cooked pork and potato / bean sprout soup  /

 

 

I want to workout before eating meal.

So , today I worked out before breakfast and lunch.

 

★dumbbell squat 8LB × 2  30×3 sets

★bulgarian split squat 15 right and left ×3sets 

★standing booty kicks 40 right and left × 3sets

★hip lift 30×3sets

 

Today I have abs muscle pain ♪ happy!! I  hope tomorrow I have booty muscle pain .

 

 

My Japanese friend Haru graduated from the school today.

 

We are so close. Almost everyday we played basketball together.  And also we drank until morning one day.

So this is kind of Haru’s farewell party.

We went to a restaurant named “GOOD TASTE”!  Many teacher recommended  this restaurant to me. Finally I got it ♪

 

The menu is cheap but the amount is good enough , and exactly “GOOD TASTE”!!!

We all are very satisfied ; )  I wanted to know there earlier .

 

After that We went to a bar … oh I forgot the name. but it was down stair of BAR ONE PIECE .

Everyone ordered beer , but I ordered strawberry shake ’cause I’m teenager .

Sorry, just kidding . The reason is that I need to avoid alcohol for building body.

We enjoyed dancing . My Chinese friend Alonso is so good dancer. I didn’t know his talents.

After the bar, we ware talking whether we should go back to the dormitory or go to a gay bar. My Taiwanese friend Ester seems really like gay bar. In Japan, there are many gay bar, but I’ve never tried. No reason, just I didn’t have an opportunity .  Gays around me always attracts me. So I thought it must be fun.

Inside of the bar, tall guys who wearing only bikini pants are dancing on the stage. That was kind of interesting.  Their public hair was showing… I didn’t know how I should react…. lol

It was another world ..  yes, it is also one of the good experiences.

 

 

See ya

lunch

Several days ago , I heard from my friend  in TOEIC course that there is a Japanese student who goes back to Japan once for job interview .

He suggested to ask her to buy and bring from Japan for me when I consulted him about protein . The reason I wanna avoid to buy it here in Baguio is that if we don’t have options and very expensive. And To be honest ,I wanted to buy it on the internet, but I doubt whether  it’ll reach my place exactly .

Therefore, I ask her to accept  my  protein that I ordered on the internet at her house in Japan, and take it to our dormitory when she come back.

Fortunately , she received !! How sweet she is…! I’m proud that I am the  same nationality with her !!; D

Well , finally  I got new protein for building body!!!

My favorite teacher told me that my fashion and body is my advantage , and asked whether I jog everyday for keeping my shape.

Of course I don’t mean it… I don’t wanna  keep it ; (  I wanna reset my body size… ; (

 

Maybe you guys don’t know how many kilograms  I got after coming to the Philippines.

The answer is…..

N,,,no way……  60 kg?

 

I hope the weight scales is broken ; (((

My appropriate weight is 48-49 I think(but it is difficult to keep it for me.)…..     That’s why I need to workout seriously . ; (

Today was no power.  I trained at the too dark gym……(Most equipments are already broken . I usually use just dumbbell and abb board)

 

Today’s working out  menu 

★pranking 1.5 min × 3 sets

★side pranking 1 min × 3sets 

★sit-ups 15 × 3 sets 

★dumbbell side bend 25LB 30×3sets 

 

 

See ya.

kimchi / stir fried bean sprout and vegetable / fresh vegetable / cream sauce pasta / soup /

Today also I was looking for the bar which has live band .  I arrived on session road around 7 : 30. My favorite bar concoction usually starts performance at 9 PM maybe , so until then I ended up looking for another bar in down town .

The taxi driver recommended a dance club called Alberto’s to me. Over time I found out . I’m sure the it is an long established club ’cause the first letter “A” was lost. lol

 

Juna「What kind of bar here is?」

guard 「Live disco. 50PH entrance fee. 」

「Ah okey,  is it possible to join the live band?」

「Ahhhh……….unmm」

「It’s impossible?」

「Ye..Yeah.. sorry ma’am 」

What a shame. It couldn’t be helped..

 

After that ,  band sounds caught my years .  I realized the place has a good equipment . The song I heard  on the road was Le freak by chic.

When I arrived at the place, I asked to security  guard .

「Excuse me,  is it possible to join the performance?」

「Maybe …. 11 PM. I ‘ll ask the band . Let me know your number . 」

「I see. Thanks. Now it is too early , so I ‘ll be back here around 11 PM.」

「Okey , anyway text me then if you want to join .」

「K~ see you later.」

 

I thought I can afford to go to Concoction before PADI’S POINT. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough money, so I ended up going there on foot.

When I asked some people how to get to the bar concoction , many people said to me just take a taxi because it is not located within walking distance .

Then, I thought they just don’t like walking . I do like walking ,so it must be not so far for me.

 

 

However ..

 

 

 

It was true.  ; (

I am so sorry that I doubt them.  If I’m familiar with around here, it would be no problem.  Still ,I don’t know well here in Baguio, so I felt it was so far. And a little scared ‘ cause the lights on the way ware only few… : (

Finally, I reached there. The atmosphere was kind of different with usual since they were playing hardcore….lol

It was full of young people. Probably the band is very popular . I thought the seat is unavailable .

 

Therefore I gave up and went back to PADI’S POINT.

 

The band was performing some American hit songs . Such as Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars .

All of a sudden, the vocalist said ” Japanese ○×△☆♯♭●□~~”through the microphone.  I couldn’t catch what he said, but I thought it is the time to join them  since there was no Japanese except me there.

I went up to the stage, and waited  .

I felt awkward ‘ cause I was sitting on the chair on the stage. lol shy..lol

The good things for me was that  I could watch their performance at close range!

Surprisingly , They all are singers ,in addition to instrument players. Above them, the voices ware fantastic!!!  So I couldn’t helped being surprised every time that the vocalist changed.

After that, I borrowed the bass guitar from him .↑♪♪

Thank you for your kindness ; ) !!

 

the vocalist「Juna? Where is your friend??」

Juna「No… I ‘m alone.」

「Why !? lol  Your boyfriend is in Japan!?」

「There is no my boyfriend anywhere.  ; (」

Over time, our jamming started.

Actually…..

 

The bass guitar player was a 5 strings player . lol

Unfortunately , I have never had a 5 strings bass guitar. It confused me so much.  ; (

Still, the bass guitar player guided me … How  kind person you are.. Thanks a million.

And then, he asked me “Can you play solo?” about my ears when I was playing the bass guitar.

“m, maybe….”.

“Don’t worry, just a little ! try!!”

I couldn’t play solo as I want to…  ; ( I’m so embarrassed .

Anyway, I just focused on my play then.

The audience got hot little by little.!!  Finally,  I was relieved when I saw their satisfied faces .

And,  I and the guitar player had a good conversation in bass&guitar. ; D   He was amazing !!

I got more curious about Filipinos musicians.  I hope I could stay longer, but time fries. In particular , I wanted to visit Manila and Cebu for music,too.

 

I had a great time : ) Thanks everyone.

I look so happy.  lol

 

 

Bye.

day 68~bar~

 

 

 

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

 

TODAY’S MEAL

breakfast 

bread with peanut cream/kimchi rice / soup / watermelon / black coffee /

lunch

pumpkin soup / pineapple /spinach / kimchi / egg and tomato  / chicken /

dinner

deep fried spring rolled banana / eggplant / stir fried minced meat and vegetables /kimchi / soup /

 

Today is Friday . The curfew is at 10 pm on Weekday and Sunday . Which means, I can go out only Friday and Saturday .

There are some friends who invited me to eat out ,but I need to save money seriously….  So I just went out by myself .

First, I dropped by SM mole for exchanging yen to ph. It was already  almost 8 pm . Many snacks tempted me even tough I’m building body , but I beat them!!

I was looking for a bar named “Drop out”.  My teacher suggested the bar to me for sitting in .   According to her, it is close by SM, but I couldn’t find out . Therefore, I asked sedulity guard .

Excuse me, do you know where bar DROP OUT is?」

DROP OUT……? uhh…….    ah…… It is DROP OFF, right?」

「Oh… Really?   Okey, drop off….」

I thought I had a mistake to write the name down when I heard the name from the teacher. And then I followed his advice .

I walked for few minutes overtime I asked other guard about “bar DROP OFF” .

「Here!!」

There was nothing obviously… just exit.  I realized the guys I asked surely misunderstood that I was looking for the place people  drop someone off from their car…

That’s the way it is..I ended up looking for the bar without helping. The information I have is only it is around SM… difficult..

The moment at which I was about to give up , I saw a sight board written “drop out” far away…..!!

White letters on a black board .  Maybe you can’t see from this pic..

Finally I could  get to the bar DROP OUT!!

To be more exact, music bar wasn’t DROP OUT but  It was in the same building with drop out.

Unfortunately , the style was acoustic.  I couldn’t join ’cause  no bass guitar… ; (

Although, the musicians both guitar vocalist and percussionist are cool.  In particular their reggae feel.  I wonder why many Filipinos musicians are good at reggae? Because of  island ?  I think the rhythm of Tagalog language is also related to it…

I’ll try to go to other bar or bar concoction tomorrow, too..

 

See ya!!

day67 ~desire for mango-milk-shake ~

 

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

 

TODAY’S MEAL MENU

 

breakfast

cabbage / str fried rice / papaya / soup / a cup of black coffee / vienna sausage /

lunch

cooked to-fu / spinach / boiled chicken and egg / bean sprout soup / kimchi / deep fried something . (I couldn’t recognize ) /

dinner

kimchi / soup / macaroni fruits salad with egg / deep fried vegetables  / stir fried chicken and bitter melon / tteokbokki /

 

I am always nervous when I practice  for IELTS speaking exam with teacher. : (

Usually I choose only basic level vocabulary, and every time  it takes time to make sentences. ; (

Therefore , I have an inferiority complex …. : (

I practiced the 3rd part of IELTS speaking exam this afternoon.

 

Teacher 「Do you prefer to wake up early in general ?」

Juna 「Certainly , I like to get up in early morning . The reason is that I can connect wi-fi easily every morning ’cause there are only a few people at the lounge . And the time we eat dinner is not so late . It is at 6 PM.  If I awake until late night , I’ll be hungry and I can’t bear my appetite . It will bring me to get fat. That’s why I like getting to bet early and getting up early.」

「Let me ask you second question. When is it important to be on time?」

「Ummm .. I  think it must be appointment . This is because if I’ll be late to go there, it means someone needs to wait for me . We shouldn’t take someone’s time because time is money.」

「Ok. Why do you think it is important to be on time?」

「Ah.. In my opinion, the person who is usually late to time cannot be trusted by others. Especially in the situation of business . So, in particular Japanese people are very strict about the time. 」

 

「Okey.. alright . What locations is it not good to be on time?」

「Uhhhhhhh … It’s a tough question…  Ah,  I like to be late on a date!  」

「Date, okey. lol」

「The reason is that I want the man to think about me much…. hahaha」

「Okey! Good ! Good !」

「So , generally I’ll be late on a date .」

「Okey, why do you think that method is important to be late on a date? 」

「In my opinion, If I’ll be first or I’ll be on time, maybe the man thinks I fall head over heels in love with him.  I want to avoid the situation since I want him to love more than me.」

「Okey. I already downed your score.  What score do you need?」

「I want….. Seven.  : D」

 

 

The score he’s given me  was…

 

6.5!!!!

 

Wow it’s much higher than I thought . !!!!! Yeeeeah thanks a million teacher :D♪♪

 

According to him, my answer was creative and interesting , so he added score . lol

I’m over the moon ’cause I’d thought I suck at speaking belong IELTS exam.♪♪

I’ll continue practicing  ; D!!

 

 

BTW Today I could beat my desire for mango-milk-shake!!!

And I just ordered American coffee .

I do love drinking black coffee after all. It gives me good motivation to work harder .

 

See ya!!
