day 48 ~ complecated ~

 

 

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

TODAY’S MEAL MENU

breakfast

papaya / potato /black coffee / watery cooked rice /

lunch

watery cooked rice / meat ball / potato / beans sprout / seaweed / seaweed soup /

dinner

deep fried banana spring roll / kimchi / soup / chicken / cucumber / rice /

 

Regularly , Saturday and Sunday are holiday in the school.  Since we had long vacation,  there are classes today as per usual .

My new speaking teacher is so funny. I can speak with her without nervousness in spite of introverted . This is because I was often dancing with her before dinner in front of the dining room .  She is a good dance couch ;in addition , she is a good English teacher.

I leaned about the system of IELTS speaking exam today.

Seems like it is kind of complicated ….

 

For instance,

・Focus on the topic invariably 

Even if I talk about example or experience, I need to get back to the topic soon. (I’m not good at this..)

・If I use idioms , it should be maximum 5

I do like idiom….. It’s a bad news for me…

・Using same word in the other way can let me to get high score.

“I like healthy food . I’m old yet, so I need to take good care of my health.”   Maybe like that.

・Use middle level word besides basic level.

For example,  live → reside  and so on.

・Don’t use too many uncommon word.

The important thing is balance…

・The response ought to  be about 3 sentences . 

Too long speaking make the examiner get sleep. And also too short speaking wouldn’t be understood how much I have skills.

・Using other vocabulary to the question .

Ex.

*examiner 「Where do you live?」

Juna「I live in Baguio now.」←normal

「I am a resident of Baguio City」/ 「I currently reside in Baguio.」← I can get score!!

*examiner 「What is your favorite food?」

「My favorite food is meat .」←normal

「I love eating meat!」←normal

「I’m into eating meat, especially , chicken!!」/「Eating meat is a cup of tea!」←I can get high score.

 

 

Ohhh    It beats me….

 

 

It’ll be hard on me.  Although , I’m submissive  If I had to say.  Which mean, no dram.♪

Finally, I got my result of entrance exam for change to IELTS course .

 

 

 

My score was・・・・

 

 

 

 

 

3.5 out of 10.

 

(listening : 3   reading : 3  speaking : 4   writing : 3.5 )

 

 

Although , I didn’t understand how it is.

I brought the result to my listing class.

Teacher 「This is the lowest score actually..」

Seemed she never want to say so..lol

Therefore, I started to practice listening in that class.

The first section , there was nothing difficult ; I was able to fill in the all form without mistake.

In spite of that, the second section was too mean. : (

The speaking was too fast . It was much more difficult than first section.They can not be compared.  I’m sorry to say that I couldn’t answer only one .lol

Teacher「You feel it’s very fast , right ? But it’s normal speed actually….」

Oh, shoot….

 

Anyway,I ended up to get the audio material for reviews through gmail.  It can help my poor listening skills.

Frankly speaking,I don’t think I comprehend even if I can hear that over and over…..lol

Today also I have lots of homework…. I want to practice playing the bass guitar in addition to lean English….

I hope a day will become 48 hours.

 

 

Bye. Have a nice dream.

day46~New course~

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

Today’s meal menu

breakfast

bananas / deep-fried thing / soup / black coffee /

lunch 

green kimchi / potato(I expected it was bamboo shoot, but it wasn’t )/ normal kimchi / chicken , bananas, tteokbokki/ to-fu / soup /

dinner 

grilled fish / kimchi / stirred vegetables and egg / deep fried vegetables / boiled vegetables / site fried beef with ketchup / vegetable soup /

 

 

The vacation in the Philippines finished !  My school life started again. And also  my new class  started today.(I changed the course semi sparta to IELTS.)

Actually, I didn’t have my new class schedule and textbooks until this morning. My friend who changed the course at the same timing with me was also saying  they never gave new things.

After eating breakfast, We dropped by the office building for asking about our books and new schedules . And then , we was  able to get it finally.

Therefore , I managed to attend the class to have new books. Some teachers want me to hand in my result of level check test ; however I didn’t have  yet. I need to see it to the office building tomorrow,again.

This is my new schedule.

I think two classes increased.

Because I had anxiety if other students and teacher can comprehend my poor English, I spoke so slowly for taking time to choose correct word.  It was proven I need to have much more effort to learn English absolutely.

 

 

Bye.

day44~Manila to Baguio~

 

 

 

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

 

 I had a good trip in Singapore!

Well, I need to take a taxi from Manila airport (Ninoy Aquino International Airport)to Pasay bus terminal for going to Baguio by bus.

However , taking a taxi in Manila airport is so dangerous to tourist . Many people told me  so.  I need to be careful cause here is different with Baguio city.

 

I called the taxi driver I met when I went to Airport terminal 1 on my phone.  But it couldn’t be connected . Maybe there is something problem on my phone or his phone, or his number is wrong ,and so on…

So I decided to take other taxi.  According to the internet, many taxi driver try to lip off . Some Japanese paid 1,800PH, but some Japanese who negotiated paid only 250 PH for the same destination with me.  (I think he is good English speaker ..)

Anyway, just waiting will not bring me anything. I ought to have a go now!!

Then, a white taxi that has customer  showed up in front of me.  And the customer got out of the taxi.    Now, it’s the timing!!

I walked up the taxi driver and asked.

「How much does it cost here to Pasay bus terminal ?」

「Get in!! Lock! Lock!」

I thought he is strange cause he didn’t answer about the cost.

「No! First , tell me !!」

「Okey, I’ll use the mater! Lock! Lock!」

「Why the meter is already 100PH!? Reset !! Right now!!」

The driver didn’t reset then, but a security guard walked up to us . Maybe the place is not allowed to stop. I had no choice but to get in the taxi,and we left there.

 

I asked again.

「I can go to Pasay bus terminal within 200PH, right?」

「・・・・・・・Yes.」

Then finally , the driver reseted the meter .

「Okey, thank you gentleman .」

 

I relieved only a little to hear that.  Although , I should communicate with him  by staying on my guard.

「You speak English well…  Many Korean never speak English. Just body action. It’s so hard…」

「Oh, really? But I’m also not good enough..」

I think he has mis understood I’m Korean.

We arrived the bus terminal.  I checked how the meter is.

 

 

It was

 

 

 

 

only 113 PH.   lol

 

Thanks good driver..   I know there are a lot of bad taxi drivers here in Manila, but I must never forget there are good people ,too.

I think the experience brought me up a notch.

Singapore 3~llaollao~

 

 

 

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

 

Here in Singapore , I knew great sweets shop.

Do you know “llaollao”?

It’s the first time I try.

First, choose the size of yogurt . I chose M cause it can get 3 topping menu.

 

It is dragon fruit , mango, mellon.

 

Singapore has many kinds of fruits. Good!!

 

It is not normal yogurt, this is FROZEN YOGURT.!!

 

However the figure is like ice-cream…. I had a  little doubt if it is really yogurt.

 

Anyway, I had a go!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Woooooooooooooooooooow

 

 

FANTASTIC!!

If I can afford , I’m gonna eat this everyday!!!!!

 

According to the Internet, it came from Spain . And There is the store in Osaka, too. I’m not sure about Tokyo.

 

I hope llaollao will get more popular in Japan, too!!!!!

I ‘ll be supporter!

Singapore 2 ~flower dome~

 

 

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

 

The second place in Singapore I went is flower dome in Marina gardens.

 

A girl is screaming something under the big mushroom .

Compared with cloud forest  , here is kind of more mysterious .

There are also many types of plants.

Little  cactus .

 

Big cactus .

 

Something strange placed around there.

 

 

 

Singapore is also in Halloween mood .

Probably , Shibuya is full of the people who wearing special costume by this.

I’m happy I’m not in Tokyo now cause I hate the crowd.

I think Singapore is really peaceful country more than Japan.

When I was in Manila in the Philippines for getting on air plane , I was feeling so nervous.

 

Here is comfortable.  In particular, the thing that there is toilet paper in every bathroom.

DAY40~trip~

 

 

 

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

Oh last night 25PM, I was at the lounge for self studies. All of a sudden, it would be full of smoke, but I didn’t care and kept studies.  A female Japanese student told the people at the lounge that we need to go outside right now, fire brought out on 4th floor in the dormitory!

R….really?

I was wearing earphone , so I didn’t notice but it was very noisy outside cause almost students gathered there.

According to school manager, it was not exactly fire. Some electric trouble and spark brought out.

 

Finally, we were able to come back to our room around 1 and half hour later.

And today, the all light run off from 9AM to 5 PM.  All water is also unavailable . All bathroom was so dirty…. It couldn’t be helped…

It was really inconvenient cause I had a plan to go to MANILA air port for going to Singapore alone. However My phone’s rest of battery was only 20 %. lol  Of course the flight ticket information is also in it. Above all I’m  foreigner , I’m not familiar with around here.

 

Anyway I tried to save the battery and I didn’t use my phone as possible as I can.

First , I left the school at 6 PM after eating dinner. I took a taxi to go to the bus terminal . It is also first time I take a taxi alone. I didn’t exactly understand where the bus terminal is. However taxi driver is professional after all. He asked where I’ll go with the bus, I answered Manila airport. We arrived there soon. Thanks.

I wasn’t sleep well on the bus cause I was a little afraid if I can get on the airplane without any problem.

When I arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, I asked guards where I should go and I showed my ticket information with phone.

Unfortunately….It was not there…. The airplane will depart from terminal 1, but I was at terminal 3. Then it was 1:30 AM.

The guards told me I need to take a taxi to terminal 1.

I asked him how much it will cost. He asked me how much I can pay ….. lol

I was beside myself with uneasiness of taking taxi in Manila ….I heard they always try to lip off.

I standed on the line for taking taxi , and when my tern was coming, first I asked the taxi driver how much it will cost .  He said 200 PH, he use mater , so I don’t need to be afraid.

Probably I’m lucky to meet nice taxi driver like him.  we had a lively conversation in the taxi. He had lived in Nagoya,Japan 20 years ago.  He said to me  when he meet Japanese guy, he feel happy. I told him that I was really afraid of taking a taxi in Manila cause I heard some bad story from people. According to him also, exactly there are a lot of bad taxi drivers . For instance , even if the appropriate price is 200 PH , some driver demand 2000 PH.lol Sounds like they are too mean.

He helped me, I arrived at terminal 1 surfy. He said if I wanna take a taxi in Manila,I can call him . And he gave me his number. I really appreciate his kind.  Was awesome middle age man…I realized my type is the over two decades order man  than me after all.♪

Well, I’ll get on air plane.  I’m sure I can have a nice trip.

See you around.
